It was another disappointing week for estate sales - I visited two sales, and there was a lot of cute stuff that was not old and a lot of old stuff that was not cute. It's ok, though. I didn't have a big haul, but I found a few items this week that I'm excited about. Two of my favorite finds are in my little vignette below.
Let's break it down, shall we?
I found this fabulous vintage deer needlepoint this week and I was thrilled. It's beautifully done and I love it. Oh, and the best part, I paid $3 for it. Sorry about the glare in the pics - it's incredible in person.
I got these globe bookends today for $10 at the antique store where I have a booth. I was pleasantly surprised at that price because most things at the store are pretty pricey! The books are just vintage favorites that I've had for a while.
I completed the vignette with some past flea market finds - an old tea tin that I bought for $1 and a collection of old souvenir matchbooks, displayed inside a vintage mason jar.
I thought I would also show you my latest "flip." My Etsy shop and vintage booth are essentially hobbies that let me clear things out and buy more vintage goodies without the guilt. Most of my profits from the vintage booth are promptly spent at the other dealer's booths. Today, I picked up my February earnings, which included the sale of this groovy piece of pottery for $40:
I celebrated the sale by treating myself to this lovely little vintage sterling silver ring with a purple stone:
I tried to capture how the light makes a "star" in it. It is so pretty on, and I had to have it. As a bonus, I struck up a conversation with the booth owner, and she was such a fantastic, interesting lady. I love meeting and talking to fellow treasure hunters! She gave me 20% off, so it came out to $40. It was meant to be!
