Estate Sale Finds April 23, 2106

Finally...... the estate sales are picking up again.  Everyone must be bored out of their minds because the lines to get into the ones we hit this weekend were long.   I don't know about you, but I hate standing in line and watching people come out of the house with things that I would have bought.  That drives me crazy.   But I also hate it when people keep walking out and nobody bought anything.  Because you know what that means - prices are too high and nobody is cutting any deals.

So let's take a look at what we got this weekend.  Not a lot of stuff, but some fun things.  First up is 2 sets of vintage salt and pepper shakers from 2 different years of the InterBev shows.


Louie found this adorable little lamp and picked it up for Chablis....


And I grabbed this lantern for Chablis to add to her growing lantern collection....


I think she may remove the glass because neither of us was too crazy about the Christmas scenes.  The lantern has a battery operated light but I think that may be removed as well....


Pyrex 501.  This is the first one I've found in this small size.  I may have to keep this one for myself...


I'm always drawn to colorful tins and this is the first one I've seen like this.  It was full of dry mustard, which I tossed out....


I picked up 2 different sets of silver plated napkin rings....



And 1 set of pewter napkin rings....


And finally, a Warner Brothers spoon and fork set from 1975....



Most items are headed for my Etsy shop.   See anything you like?

  7. My Aunt Ethel was a champion vintage shopper with a houseful of treasures. I don't have the gift or the memory to know what's worth buying or if the price is right, lol. Have fun! :)
