WOO HOO!! Estate Sale Score

 

I was innocently coming home from running some errands on Friday and there were Garage sale signs everywhere, but I resisted!! Until, I saw an Estate Sale sign right on the corner and could see it from the street I was on.  I knew it was a sign that I needed to stop! 
So I did!
 
 
It was a fantastic sale.  And yes, I did get all of this very reasonable.  You can see the $.25 sticker on the white ironstone pitcher.  It does have a small chip, but with something in it, it'll never show.
 
Look at the gorgeous round mirror.  They said it had been in the family for over 100 years.  It is 28" round and has the most wonderful frame - not a scratch or chip in it.  I'm pretty sure it will get painted.  The mirror is in fairly good shape - it has a few bad places in it but to me, that just gives it character!
 
 
Look at the detail on that mirror frame!!
 
 
I love this little sugar and creamer set with the tray!!
 
 
I couldn't pass up this cute little kitten with basket planter.  It'll go good with all of my cream colored pottery.
 
So, in all, I got a mirror, 4 pieces of cream pottery, three red-topped salt and pepper shakers, a blue dish with lid, a piece of silver on little feet, a blue gravy bowl, a little pitcher with green on the top, the big set of salt and pepper shakers and two pieces of jewelry.
 
Saturday, my sweet husband is taking me over into Arkansas where all of the Arts and Crafts show are this weekend.  I'm going to take my new camera and even if we don't hit the shows, I'll take pictures and have a nice, quiet, relaxed day.
 
Enjoy your weekend.
 
Till next time, Judy

Hi Judy. I would have snagged up the ironstone pitcher too, cracks or not! I would proudly display it as a loved worn treasure. Love all your divine finds! xo's Pam

So nice to meet you, Judy! We have probably been at Savoy at the same time. We're there almost every Sat. morning. I'm green with envy about your wonderful finds, especially that little pitcher! I look forward to following your blog. Hope you'll be back to visit me soon.

Smiles,

You find such wonderful things, but the wreath in the post just before this is what I call simple perfection. I love transfer-ware and this is such a grand idea. Bravo!
Your blogging sister, Connie :)

Judy, my Mom and dad and my husband and I spent yesterday at War Eagle Mill at the arts and crafts show. Lots of great stuff but also lots of traffic and people. Next spring I will probably go on a week day instead of Saturday. Hey, maybe you can come over and we can go together. :)

Great haul! I can't imagine getting rid of something that's been in my family for 100 years. Who does that? I guess no relatives around to fight over it, perhaps.

Marilyn said...

Nice finds! Love the chipped white pitcher.
Thanks for visiting me at Delights of the Heart.

Mimi Sue said...

You found some great things! I especially love those salt and pepper shakers with the red tops. I have a small collection of them. Here in northern Utah I think we're about done with yard sales for the winter. So sad. Mimi

Oh didn't you have a great day Judy - you picked up some wonderful pieces.
It's one of my favourite things to do - poking about in second hand shops and finding a bargain!

Thank you for visiting me too! I hope you'll be back!
