Mom and I might not be The Bobbsey Twins, but we had a great start to “Treasure-Hunting” for 2012!
The first local estate sale of the year was held this past weekend. We arrived early, but still stood in line behind about 40 other shoppers. I had my mind set on some Pyrex that had been pictured on EstateSales.net, but with so many others in front of us I had my doubts that I would be successful.
The doors opened promptly at 8:00am and we headed as quickly as we could to the little kitchen. I saw the Pyrex still on the counter and finally worked my way over to claim it. Mom stood by with a box into which I loaded a 9 x 13 Snowflake baker and a Snowflake loaf pan.
There was also a 1-1/2 quart yellow-green casserole that I couldn’t see in the pictures. Here it is with a vintage dishtowel featuring embroidered grapes and a demi-john.
I also found a Federal 3-spout measuring cup, a Hazel-Atlas ivy-embossed refrigerator dish and a cute green/yellow daisy apron.
Have you started treasure-hunting in 2012?
