The pickings were really slim this week for estate sales. On Friday we drove about 15 miles away to an ADVERTISED estate sale and when we got there, nobody was there. I double checked the dates and times and it was scheduled for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. What's up with that? I was more than a little miffed at that. Talk about a waste of time and gas. We drove back towards home and I found another estate sale that had amazing prices but not a lot to choose from. Here's what we got....
A wooden tool carrier that Chablis has already claimed as her own. 8 pewter napkin holders that are headed for my shop. The coat rack that I'll paint and also re-sell. I have no idea what the other thing is, but Louie wanted me to buy it. It's tin and the lid opens. I'm thinking of painting it white and distressing it, but I have no idea what it's supposed to be. That's it!
I hope everyone had a nice holiday. We sure did. Then on Saturday we drove to Iowa with my parents. It was an 11 hour round trip day, what with the drive back and forth, breakfast and lunch, plus 17 geocaches. More on all that in an upcoming post.
