Estate Sale Finds 3-16-15

This week was slow again for sales but we did manage to pick up a couple of things.  I'm always grabbing paint brushes because I can never have too many of them and the vintage coffee container is in excellent condition.  I wish the rest of the set would have been there as well...


A Levi's jean jacket - it's too large for Chablis (remember she grabbed my other one a couple of weeks ago?) so this one is being washed and will go up for sale this week.


A couple of vintage fitted sheets and some pillow cases.  I may keep the blue ones for the lake house - they are so pretty.  I've never bought and sold them before but other people seem to do good with those so I thought I'd give it a try...


These were my favorite find of the week - vintage angora gloves.  LOVE them and they still had the original tag holding them together, so they were never used.  Who would own these and not use them?   Did I mention that I love them?  Unfortunately it's already too warm to wear them any more this winter, but I'll be putting them away for myself for next year.


 This owl cutting board is huge and super thick.  All it needs is a good sanding, a little coffee ground staining and a good rub down with some coconut oil and it will be gorgeous.  I may keep that one to use when I'm pounding silverware for lettering.  The grater is headed to my shop and the spoon was a fab find - sterling silver!  I got it for a quarter.  I want to stamp something on it using my new letter stamps, but I haven't decided what yet.  It The basket I got for free because the woman at the estate sale didn't have any bags so she just threw a bunch of my stuff into it for me to carry.


And 3 small bags of vintage glass ornaments.  Some of them are really pretty and there were a bunch of plastic ornaments tossed in as well.  I don't much care for plastic ornaments.  Does anyone know if they will sell?  The glass ones will be headed to my shop.




And that's it for this week.  Be sure to come back tomorrow so you can see what I did with the chest we picked up last week.  All I can say is AWESOME!!!

  5. Not bad! Yes, the plastic ornaments should sell, but this is off-season. You might want to hang onto them until Sept or so then list them. My mom had a set of square chrome canisters just like that-- plus a bread box and paper dispenser. In the late 70s, I thought they were terribly ugly and talked her into buying new stuff!
