Mom and I set out early Friday morning to attend an estate sale that had been advertised on estatesales.net. The pictures posted on the website showed only a few things that looked interesting, but I’ve learned that not everything is shown in the photos. We looked through elegant glassware, pots and pans, lots of crochet thread and tables of Christmas items, but I walked away with…..
A handled white wicker tray, a jadeite-colored apron and a Japanese porcelain bowl,
A vintage juicer and 2 crocheted potholders,
Two pretty Copley bird figurines and a cross-stitched tablecloth.
We stopped at a couple of yard sales that were advertised in the local papers. Though we didn’t find much, but we did discover this large 39” x 19” framed needlepoint tapestry. The work is beautiful!
But the thrill of the day came when we turned to head home and saw signs for an estate/moving sale. This one had not been advertised in the papers or online. We stopped....nothing was priced…you just picked out what you wanted to buy and a sweet older gentleman gave you a very reasonable price. I went straight to the small kitchen and picked out a few things. When I opened a bottom cabinet and my heart stood still…a Pyrex bowl! I moved a few things around and found two more Pyrex bowls. To be exact, I found three nesting Snowflake Blue mixing bowls!
What a thrill!!!
