My Treasure Hunting Week-end


Ok, so I heard that people were waiting outside this house as early as 5:00am for this sale that started at 9:00am.

I do enjoy estate shopping but I am not willing to get up that early and wait four hours!

Since we hadn't signed up for this sale we showed up a little after 9:00am and waited 30 minutes to get in the door.

Let me tell you, I saw some really good things walking out the door!

When we finally got in the door there were still more treasures to be found!

Ok, so I might have to keep this little girl, she is just as cute as can be!


I believe this cute little vintage holder is for earrings.

What a perfect way to store those rhinestone clip-ons until they're ready to be used.

And in pink too!

After we had taken our first load to the car we decided to go back in and look around again.

It's so much easier to look around when your arms aren't full and the crowd has gone down!

My #1 also got into some fishing, so he was a happy boy!

Here is a sweet doll swing I picked up.

It's amazing how many vintage treasures are still out there waiting to be found.

I am so glad there are people who do not like to throw away things!

You certainly found some great things.

I would have had to wrestle with you for that doll if I was there.

I know first hand how people do not throw things out. Cleaning my parents home was fun but overwhelming. They kept everything............

I am so envious of all your wonderful finds! I was stuck at home running my own garage sale this weekend. At least my garage is empty now and ready for more goodies!

Hi Deb,
There was so much stuff , something for everyone. That was a fun one. Did you see the darling green cabinet that Cheryl got? Oh I coveted that one but you can't be upstairs , in the basement and on the main level all at the same time so you're gonna miss something. Love the little doll. I'll try to post photos Wednesday of what we bought.

Sounds like a lot of us went to the same sale! I got 3 suitcases, I think they match one of yours! And I got the cutest little doll, too! So glad that when I got there at 11, you all had left me some goodies!
great pics, I will try to post some of mine!
