Estate Sale Finds

Yes I escaped today!! Hubby took me to a couple of Estate sales this AM.
 It was so nice to get out for a change. Heres what I found.

Some vintage lace, a pretty slip,vintage clock, 
even a pkg of hosiery,the kind with the seam in the back.

Beautiful old Swiss handkerchiefs, some still in the package!

Some black gloves, old velvet ribbon (its so soft)
and a lace scarf like my Grandma used to wear to church every Sunday.
 An old Dictionary Circa 1937
Sorry pics so dark!

A beautiful box of vintage cards.

An entire box of vintage cards for $1.00,
 some still have a price tag on the 2 for 5 cents, WOW

Some borrowed ancestors, love the hardboard frames they were in.
 I think she through these in for free!

A vintage tin to hold my goodies and a nice old wood tape measure.

Just a little bling, most was way out of my price range.
All in all it was a lovely morning and we got back way before it got hot.
 Now I'm ready for a nap!!

I love all of your yard sale finds, so cool! I can't get out of the house much so I am forced to do my "yard sale'ing" on Etsy. You gave me a few more ideas to "search" for. My husband will be so pleased, not!

Thespoena McLaughlin said...

Looks like a good haul to me. I went out this morning and all I found were a few school clothes for the youngest and 2 rusted door handles (they weren't even pretty) but you know me I can't resist the rust! Have a great weekend!
