I love leaving the house in the morning and finding the most delicious vintage items.
Why, it's practically effortless! Wherever I'm going, I walk right in...
I wish. It's not quite that simple. Surprised? Sometimes you dig through piles of c-r-a-p-o-l-a, hoping that a rat isn't going to scurry by, haggle with someone that wants to charge you high-end shop prices for the dirtiest little treasures and head home, praying all the way that you haven't been exposed to some deadly virus in the dirty air.
I had just such an experience last week. Most of the estate sale companies in our area are reputable. They clean the homes, organize the merchandise and charge reasonable prices. There is one that doesn't. I usually avoid their sales like the plague, but Kathy called and said it might be worth digging. I unearthed a few things.
A bunch of vintage Daisy BBs
Cool old pie pans
Nice early funnels
Tole till tray
Primitive cutting board
A friendly pig
Letter sweater J
Awesome parts drawers
..and my favorite, a tiny Victorian powder box
