First Estate Sale For A New Year

Yikes, where did THAT week go.  Sometimes they just flash by before you know what happened!
I visited my first estate sale of the new year last Saturday.  I had a busy schedule for the day so didn't arrive until well after noon but was still able to find a few things and it felt very good to get back out there after the holiday dry spell.
A new plastic nativity for my collection and it will be new again next Christmas because I will have forgotten about it by then.  The white figures seem like of odd so I wonder if it glows in the dark??
I turned that bottle with the Tiffany blue lid the wrong way in this photo.  It has a pretty label on the other side and it is olive oil that was distributed by Rexal Drug.  Maybe as a beauty product??  A stinky beauty product - just saying.
 One of the out-buildings was a workshop where I picked up this maple leaf shelf.  I think it will be perfect in Grandma Green.  My son bought a drill press.  I think the previous owner would be happy to know it went to someone who will use it!
A huge box of mostly ribbons that I am STILL sorting through.  It is taking me way longer than I anticipated to get all of this off my work table and get back to the business of taking pictures and listing.
I picked up this wonderful crochet lace at Nina and Joe's a couple of weeks back and forgot to post the pictures.  The good stuff!
The tiniest little embroidery hoop I have ever seen.  I put a quarter in the picture for scale.  I am guessing it might have been for mending.
Wishing you all a junky week!

Sorting through ribbons is such fun. Love the tiny hoop. What will you do with it??

Annette said...

The crochet lace and colorful ribbon is definitely the good stuff! I love colors in the lamp too.

What a load of fun stuff, no wonder it's taking so long to get it sorted. Do I spy some plastic babies on top of the cool old jar with the cool old orange lid? Love all that beautiful old lace.

I have a small hoop too and wasn't sure what it had been used for. I went to my 2 favorite thrift stores today for the first time in weeks. Felt so good to dig through stuff! lol Hugs!

Oh...I am so jealous!!! That is my kind of sale...And of course the lace....Your honey hole just keeps on producing! Thanks for your thoughts on a flower cart, I think maybe I will not put in a huge investment, but just test the waters and buy a few

glad you found some goodies! It was a fun sale to dig through. I think that nativity is a glow in the dark one.

Hi Kathy, Glad you had good luck at your first sale. I am anxious to get out there hopefully this weekend.
You found some great treasures. Love the lace pieces. The nativity is a great find too and I wonder if it does glow in the dark. How special that would be.
Have a great rest of the week.

Laurie said...

Oh the lace! I think you're right -- that little nativity is probably glow in the dark. Laughing over Grandma Green!! LOL!!

Gail Thayer said...

Oh my, you put me to shame!!!! I need to get out there in the worst way! Found a couple of tidbits today that will be listed in my etsy shop......as soon as I have the time.
Don't know what's happening lately but time is definitely slipping away from me!!
