I count it as an honor when a friend invites me to preview a downsizing/estate sale before the actual event. It’s fun for me, I get to buy before the other shoppers, the friend doesn’t have to price as many items AND she gets some free appraisals in the process.
That honor was bestowed on me a few days ago so Mom and I got to spend a couple of hours digging, picking and buying some great items. I’m sharing just a few of the things that I purchased that day and will be showing more in an upcoming post… I promise!
We found a Sadler teapot and three teak trivets….
A pair of ceramic “cabbage leaf” candle holders….wax drippings included!
A set of 6 French ramekins….
A pretty celluloid vanity box…..
And finally, a pair of binoculars with case and a vintage Aladdin vacuum bottle with its original packaging still attached.
Old friends are the best antiques!
