Estate sales were a huge disappointment this weekend. I went to five, and didn't buy a single thing. I saw a lot of teddy bear collections, overstuffed furniture, and floral/lace. The promising mid century items all had condition issues, and I'm being really picky nowadays, so that was a bummer.
On the plus side it gave me some time to clean up and photograph some fun things that have been piling up in the last few weeks. Without further ado, here they are:
Gold plated shamrock paperweight:
I paid more for this one item than all the rest of the items in this post combined!
I just thought it was really pretty.
These cigar boxes were only 50 cents each:
They are not vintage, but they will be great for crafts.
I'll probably spray paint this and put a plant in it.
I can't get enough of bird art. This goldfinch is from the late 60s:
There's really no way to tell if these hooks are vintage.
Oh well, that means I get to keep them instead of putting them in the shop!
Finally, some Pyrex for my booth:
Thanks for stopping by and sharing the vintage journey with me! I love hearing your comments, and word verification is off, because you deserve better :)
