Weekend Estate Sale Finds

Estate Sales in my area appear somewhat different from those I read about in blog posts. The ones I find are run by the relatives and there is usually time to chat and learn as I shop. A bit of history is often shared about items that are being released. Today I am thanking J and G for inviting me to choose from their pre-estate sale. As you have guessed I put the fresh stock into my booths at Village Antiques Mall. Having a booth lets me buy what I love and share with other collectors.

Mom had a similar stool, all metal though, to the brown fold down step-stool below.
The grey bench was found just outside the back door, used for putting
clothes baskets on and changing shoes for inside/outside.
At the church sale on Saturday I was lucky to find the red makeup case
and red plaid topped sewing basket.
 I also found "A Recipe for Love" small pillow as well.
 The previous weekend at another estate sale I found the tin TV tray with train motifs.
 Something I always love to find, portable typewriters.
My finds usually are from the 40's and 50's
but not limited to those eras.

  2. Hi Joy,

    Looks like you found some great things. I remember starting on a typewriter. The next generation won't even know what they are!


Thanks for visiting. I read and appreciate all your comments. Joy
