Yesterday I just had to get out of the house. I told my self no estate sales...but I finally gave in! Why do I even try to resist? I got there 45 min before closing time and had so much fun digging!
Here's what I found.
The angel is by Holt Howard and she's a tree topper! I think she needs a make-over though. Christmas cards and ribbon to add to my stash. And I never used to pick up solid colored Shiny Brites, but lately I can't seem to leave them behind either. It's part of the addiction I guess. Ha!
(pyrex bowl was mine already)
Isn't she sweet? I think I'll "pluck" her feathers and give her a dress. She should also hold some ornaments and a tree or something don't you think?
I could tell that the x-mas stuff had already been gone through. I don't even want to think about what I missed! I feel lucky that I walked away with this. The Gurly candles cleaned up really well with a damp paper towel.
The first thing I did was go to the basement, and there was half a jar or mercury glass beads just sitting on the work bench with all of the tools!!! Then I went upstairs and found a box full of x-mas "garbage"...I sat on the floor and picked out each of the little glass ornaments that were at the bottom.
All these things were on a dollar table in the basement! This is the cutest tablecloth I've ever found! It was covered in stains though. It's not anymore! I worked hard on it. And it will be in the Market on Monday! No markings on these mugs, but they are the perfect shade of Tiffany blue/green.
I found a few sheets of vintage x-mas wrap, a frozen charlotte, and a jumbo Rand McNally story book too! When I brought my pile up to the gal at the desk she said "How about $6 for all of it"?
I was filthy when I left...but so happy! :)
Hope you're all having a fun weekend!
Stop by for "Market Monday" at 5:00 central time if you can!
Mama you are so mean! -W
