This past Saturday there was an estate sale titled "A Collector's Dream". The address was just a couple blocks from my house. Darn it! I tried so hard to stay home. But I kept picturing those annoying guys from the last sale I went to, the ones that sold the numbers. And something made me really want to get there before they did! lol
I got there at 1:30 AM and I was number 5! The sale started at 9:00! I know, totally crazy and wrong for so many reasons. It was the coldest night so far this fall in MN, and I was curled up in the back seat for hour after hour just trying to keep warm, hoping that time would go by fast. It did not! lol
I read two magazines on the Kindle and painted my nails when the sun came up.
Finally it was time!!!
I bolted to the basement and the first thing I found was three boxes of these angel lights!
Pretty darn sweet aren't they?
I had the x-mas area in the basement to myself for the first 3-4 minutes. So I got everything that I wanted.
Terrible pic. Sorry!
I got 3 really cute Gurley candles. They have their Woolworth's .10 price stickers on the bottom. A Holt Howard Santa candle stick holder, a big vintage stocking, and two Santa's also from Woolworth's.
Do you think there are support groups for people who are addicted to Shiny Brites?
I love when I find bags full of x-mas crafty/corsage bits like this!
I try to avoid buying solid colored ornaments, but these I bought for their boxes!
I think I'm going to cover our chair cushions in this vintage fabric. Rather, I think I'll have my Mom cover our chair cushions. :)
There were lots of really old and rare Little Golden Books (like the ones with decals and puzzles) but they were all in poor shape. The only one that was in great condition was a x-mas one that I didn't have, so I lucked out! And I grabbed this sweet little coloring book too. Oh! the x-mas table cloth in the background was also something that I found at the sale! I was so happy to find it!
So that's that! It was a looooong night! But it was pretty fun to be number 5 and know that there were about 100 people behind me! And yes, I did beat out those mean guys! lol
Wellie wants to tell you something,
Yesterday was my Birthday and I turned 5 years old! This is what I look like when I see something that I think I might want to have.
And this is what I do when I know that I want to have something that smells really good. I offer my paw to Mama to shake. Mama usually laughs at me when I do this. She tells me that I'm doing it backwards. People are supposed to ask me to shake before I give them my paw.
And this is what I look like when I eat my "Happy Birthday Toast"! Mama made me toast (it's my favorite) with butter and honey for my special day. She said I could have it because I have lost 2 pounds on my diet! I love Mama!
