Last Saturday there was an Estate Sale just a few blocks away. I told myself that I wasn't allowed to go. But the pictures looked sooo amazing! A house jam-packed with vintage everything. Well, an hour before closing time I couldn't stand it any longer! I begged Angie to run over there with me.
The house was still full of stuff, but I ran directly to the basement...
Where I found about 8 big boxes of Vintage Christmas! What???? Why was it all still there? This never happens to me! A corsage still in the box, a jar full of mercury beads? I was literally shaking!
For an hour I dug and sorted...and gave Angie instructions! LOL
"take this, I need another box, block that lady"! haha
I've always wanted to try one of these Santa Card Clip things, and I love these big Santa faces! They'll be great on a wreath! And the glittered pine cones are perfect for the x-mas corsages that I make!
Isn't he sweet? He's about a foot tall. I need to do a little research on this blowmold I think.
Has anyone seen little trees like this (on the left)? At first I thought they were pine cones but they're not. They're the perfect trees to decorate putz houses with! I love the sugary lollipop ornaments too!
So when we carried it all upstairs (in a really nice Rubbermaid container with removable trays), at first the lady said "The ornaments are .50 each, no matter what their size". But then when she saw how many I had she said "How about all of it, including the container, for $20.00"?
When I ran downstairs I was hoping to find an ornament or two that someone had left behind! It just goes to show you that you never know what you'll find!
I hope you all find something unexpected this week too!
