A Salute to all Veterans

First of all Thanks to all those important individuals that serve our great Country.

This past weekend I went to an estate sale and found the following US wooden flag. I am not sure if its vintage or of its story, all I know is that it belonged to a Vietnam Vet making it a treasure find for me.  It is marked in back. Anybody has an idea? It is probably one of many, but I love it!


Thanks for stopping by!

Vintage Finds Part 2

Hello!

I am in one my favorite estate sale company's emailing list and this week I got an email with a familiar address.  I had gone to a sale at house before and found some goodies that you can see here.  I knew vintage stuff was to be found so I went.  The following is what I bought.






 

They had a lot of of vintage but since everything I buy I keep I limited myself to what I will use. Have many regrets. 

Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment.

Some finds


Hello! Hope you had a great weekend. Mine was great! Had a week off from work, went to a family barbecue and enjoyed some rain. With weather of 100+, rain is always welcomed.  I also enjoyed the US women's soccer win.

I haven't found much lately. Went to two sales this weekend and both were no good. I went to a sale last week that I wished was given by a company that has half off days. It was a hoarder sale and it was the last day of the sale and i was told i could make offers and so i did to hear a NO both times i tried. There were lots of items still unsold and person just would say no to a lot of offers.

 Well on to my small amount of finds

I am back

Hello!

Long time no blog.  I went missing for a bit, I was selling my first home.  To my great surprise, I sold my house within days of posting.  I posted on January 4 and by January 28 the listing was removed.  I finally closed on March 2.  While packing i vowed NEVER EVER to go estate saling again, OMG all the stuff one accumulates!  Of course after settling in a rental home (want to take time buying again) the estate sales yelled at me to go. I swear they did :).  I been buying mainly furniture and big stuff, since the home I am renting is a little bigger than the one I sold.  I have found some goodies.  I am sharing with you just a bit of what I found in the last months.



I found more Peanuts' books

For some reason i had so much trouble uploading pictures correctly today.  Thanks for stopping by and leaving messages, hope to see your finds soon.

I found some Fossils

Some fossil watches and tins that is... ;).  I went to an estate sale and the person was a fossil watch and items collector.  They had over 300+ watches, tins, shirts, caps, pencils etc.,  I am not a big watch person, nor fossil buyer, but  I bought two watches because they are of a character that i enjoyed watching while i was growing up.  It is funny, because usually when i have free time, i like to look at estate sales webpage and see pictures of sales happening all over the states and one day i was seeing all this Popeye collectibles and was thinking to myself, that in my saling time, i hadn't seen anything Popeye related items and then I go to this sale on Friday and there was Popeye.  The following is what I found and bought.





They had three watches, but I only bought two as I didn't want to spend much not knowing what else was for sale this weekend.  I am glad I just bought these two.  I also bought some tin boxes and pencils, two t-shirts (not pictured) that I liked.






I also bought books



I enjoy seeing your finds.  Thank you for stopping by and for your comments.

Books and a dream

I went to two estate sales this weekend.  They were both close to each other and about 40 minutes away from my house.   Had to make my drive worthwhile.  The first one was by my favorite estate sale company and it was already the second day of sale.  I got there and the house was close to empty.  Nothing for me.  Drove to the other sale, about 8 minutes away and located in the west side of town.  The area is called "The willows."  Or just in my dreams homes.  I can't even afford to dream of living there lol.  I still can do it.  I WILL DO IT!  Positive thinking...  I would love to live in this side of town, everything is green, surrounded by old tall trees and one can even breath pure fresh air.  One day...  This is part of their every day view.  (excuse my photos, only camera I own is my phone camera; need to invest in one soon)




It was barely 10 a.m. and sale had started at 8:00 and house was also almost empty.  I am starting to like this new estate sale company; they have sales at very nice homes and are very affordable.  I bought few things and mainly books.  LOVE BOOKS! Have a lot to read too.




Hope you have a great week and like always I am enjoying your finds.

Goodies Part 2

It was Sunday and I was debating to go to the sale where I saw the dresser and where I bought my last goodies. Can read about it here.   It took me almost all morning, but it was 2 pm and the sale ended at 3, so of I went.  The sale was like half hour away from my home, so I had 30 minutes to shop.  There was an accident on the freeway and traffic was at a stand still.  I made it 15 minutes till closing.  I looked for what i wanted and of course they were long gone.  I still searched for other goodies and came home with the just the following.



1962 Book


Vintage marked "Cali"

The dresser needed more work than what i initially thought, so it had to stay :(.  Do not have space for it in my garage.

I have been to other sales, but haven't bought anything that I don't immediately need or liked.
