I went to an estate sale in Hudson a few weekends ago and it was a total bust. It was in a large, newer home and it was confined to just a few rooms on the first floor. I prefer sales at older homes with rooms packed to the gills -- especially the basement and the garage. That's usually where I dig and find the hidden treasures. Unfortunately, there was no garage or basement digging going on at this house. I never like to leave a sale empty handed, because ya know, there's always something to be found, but unless I wanted to come home with a fancy mahogany dining room table or some books from the 90's, empty-handed it would be.
I couldn't possibly end my estate sale shopping there so i quickly searched estatesales.net and came across another one in Shaker. As usual, my heart started racing and I couldn't get there fast enough!
I walked in and the angels started singing! The house was FULL of stuff and the digging began!
|I came across one of these metal measuring scoops in a kitchen |
storage area then kept digging and found the other three in the set.
I think these would be great as art on a kitchen wall.
|While digging for the scoops I also came across the measuring spoons.|
|I'm a sucker for vintage aprons. I wish I |
actually cooked so that I had a reason
to wear them.
|Vintage table linen with a blue scalloped edge. I love the look of |
stacked vintage linens on display. Like the examples here.
|Vintage chalkboard found buried in a box in... |
the garage of course. According to this site,
this is a 1940's double-sided
school slate worth $65.
|Um, this had a pom on it so of course I bought it.|
