Finds of the day!

Well, I had today off so I was able to hit a few estate sales. I didn't get an early start, but that was fine. I hadn't signed up for any estate sales so I thought I could just leisurely walk in, not feeling stressed to look at everything so fast.

At the first sale I went to I found a huge bag of vintage barkcloth curtains. They were in the basement in a large plastic bag. I couldn't believe no one had bought them yet. They were so heavy I ended up dragging them to the car. Where is my #1 when I need him? Oh yeah, working so I can support my habit! I came away with about six large curtain panels with valences for a whopping $15.00.

I also found these sweet vintage cards for .75 cents.


At the next sale, I found a fun 1940's dress plus a few other little things.



I also got a chance to hit a few Goodwills when I was out today. Here are a few Goodwill finds.


I love these silver cups with writing on them. This one reads,"Mary Mini Mug, Fondest Love, Ken 1982". This sweet weather vain was a fun find from last week.


This was also a fun find, a silver basket. This particular one has roses around the edges as well as the handle. I love the tarnished look so it will stay that way.

And last, a Rachel Ashwell Quilt, perfect for these cold evenings!


Tomorrow looks like a good day for estate shopping so we will see what other treasures we can uncover! Have a great evening!
