Some Finds

Hello! Hope you had a Merry Christmas.  I am posting some of my finds.  I went to an Estate Sale this morning.  Records, Cd's and movies were advertised.  I started to buy records a while back, actually when I started going to Estate Sales.  They had a bunch of records, but they didn't appeal to me, plus people were almost on top of me trying to see the records.  I just bought two records, Cher and Sonny and one of Guitars.








I also found something on my Christmas wish list...a record cleaner.




And I started a new collection.  I am now collecting "play me" sharpeners.  They are made of metal and they were made in Spain in the 1970's.
Also, found this cute clown made of stones, love blue
I also bought some utensils and got these two brand new movies, the Beach House book and a precious moments magnet for free (pays to be a regular at Estate Sales)

Weekend Finds

Hello!

I went to three estate sales this weekend.  This morning I went to a sale advertised as the "Estate Sale of a famous Opera Singer."  Other than finding treasures, I also enjoy reading or finding information about the people I am buying stuff from. I like to know who own what I am about to purchase or what I purchased.  I haven't had any luck finding her name, but I did see her pictures at her house.  Today was the last day of sale and bargain day.  I didn't find much.  I am not into Opera myself but I just like to see how people lived.  I bought a poster, just cause I like butterflies :) .
 I also bought these acrylic painting magazines
 A white elephant and wooden Angel figurine that kinda reminds me of a Koskeshi doll.
 At the other two sales I found four vinyl records, Exotic Guitars, Percy Faith, The sound of music and an old Cinderella book and record.
 At the sales I also bought some books like "The Purpose of a Dog," it was interesting to find it as I was barely talking about it with a co-worker this week. Also bought The Witches' Daughter book and A thousand Prayers. I also like elephants and have been finding little elephant figurines.  These below are from India and have baby elephants inside each.
I found these little dolls earlier this year and loved them, remind me of ladybugs.
Hope you all have a great weekend. Thanks for visiting.

First

Hello,

This is my first blog. Welcome! I am going to be blogging about my garage sale, estate sale and yard sale finds.  I went to an estate sale this morning and I didn't find much, but I bought some vintage Children's Digest Magazines from 1968-1971.



 
Other samples of things that I have purchased in my year back thrifting include a lamp, some Spanish vinyl records, a record stand, lipstick holder, and a nail/screws holder pictured below.
 
Excuse mess



 
I love looking at what you purchase and plan on putting things I buy.
