hit a really good junkin estate sale this morning - surprisingly there werent' that many people there - perhaps they had mostly come earlier - like the day before - the family running the sale said their grandmother was a hoarder - i believe them - and i enjoyed looking through her treasures - basically, everything was just piled in rooms - nothing was priced - lots of things had not been uncovered - so it was a 'dig for it' and we will shoot you a price kind of deal - they were fair on the prices and there was stuff everywhere - did i mention that?..
here is a group photo of the things we uncovered ..
love this huge still life painting .. that graniteware bowl is wonderful ...
dominoes for my 'bucket o' dominoes' - though the green ones are bakelite, so i will most likely sell them separately ..
i am a sucker for vintage glassware - especially when they are as fun as these -
clocks are always good sellers - whether they work or not ..
a small grouping of ladies hats - some fancy - some everyday - a bunch of ladies gloves in cream and whites - and the wire canning basket -
an old mission style rocker - needs rockers - rod can do that easily enough - a seat cushion, which our partner sherry and i can do - and some minor cleaning - unsure if we will paint it or not -
and this is that slipcover i made with the little pleated ruffle - all washed and dried - love the way it turned out -
well i am off the do some sewing - ya'll have a great day and don't forget to tell someone today that you love them ..
A Cute Story...
