I stumbled upon this one while driving through my neighborhood on a Sunday afternoon. I figured everything had been pretty well picked over so I hesitated even stopping but then that voice inside my head got me thinking there still might be some hidden treasures that others passed up. ...And so I decided to stop.
SCORE! There was still some great stuff left. And even better, the estate sale crew seemed tired and ready to get the heyll outta there so I knew they'd be willing to negotiate. I started in the garage and spotted this cool Haig & Haig wooden crate. Perfect because it was about to double as my shopping cart!
Next I was ecstatic to find EIGHT old Reader's Digest condensed books. The covers on these are the bomb ditty and they are great for decoration.
Before heading into the house I spotted these old golf club covers -- perfect for C's vintage sports room.
My fave find of the sale was this big old, plaid, Wilson bag. I plan to use it as decoration during the holidays. Maybe fill it with presents and put it on the porch with my old sled.
I also found some other random stuff -- old wooden thread spools, black gardening boots (I have a crafty idea for these! Think turquoise spray paint and flowers.), a few scarves, 2 old hand brooms (no idea what I will do with these but I thought they were cute), a basket, a random roulette wheel (seriously? Since when do I like casino games? Random!!), and a vintage-looking strainer.
And here's the whole haul. All for the bargain basement price of....
TEN DOLLARS! $10! And so my estate sale addiction begins...
