melted away just in time for an estate sale this past weekend. That was excellent
timing since we were house-bound for a couple of days due to the ice and snow
and were ready to do some plundering. The estate sale was held for only one
day, but I found so many things that I’m going to reveal them to you in two posts.
I’m showing you the sweet and pretty goodies today….next time I’ll show you the rusty,
crusty, primitive things.
The sale started at 8AM…..Mom and I got there about 10AM….then we went back at 2PM when they marked everything half price. Thank goodness it was held here in town, only a few miles away.
One of the half-price things I picked up was a bag of crocheted doilies and lace. There were also two nice sets of embroidered pillowcases.
I love ball pitchers. This one is by Universal Cambridge in the Woodvine pattern and it came with matching salt and pepper shakers.
Along with the Bauer #12 mustard-colored mixing bowl, I picked up an avocado green enamelware ladle and a Mexican tile. I was told the apron is a Native American design.
Of course, I found some old books….among them, a Hardy Boy mystery and an interesting book on Kit Carson.
I’ve always heard of McGuffey’s Readers. I found one along with a McCoy pitcher and a sweet Red Wing vase.
Lastly I uncovered a blue Frankoma planter and a sweet demitasse cup and saucer that is not marked, but I think is probably
Blue Ridge. Check out that needlepoint pillow. Can you
imagine the hours someone spent doing the needlepoint and making all those
Stay tuned for Part 2!
