The estate sales seem to be slowing down.  I went to one estate sale last weekend and it was a bust.  I only bought a bottle of pine sol and a bottle of Windex.  They were only two sales that seem good this weekend and I went to both.  The first sale was advertised on estatesales website and I needed some of the items they had.  Was the fifth person to get to sale and waited about an hour to go in.  I bought a 16 ft ladder, an extension cord with it's reel, garden tools, books (I am a book hoarder) and the following thread holder.

The second sale was part 3 of a sale and it was given by my favorite estate sale company.  No offer was going to be denied.  I found me some salt and pepper shakers from Japan.

 Some vintage pastels for artists (not an artist, but buy them every time i see them)
 Vintage nut cups.

A wine box. Saw one on Ebay for $25, cost me less than a $1. They had more so might go back.
 I got a small box to put my finds and they said all that fits in box for $3, They didn't have to tell me twice. I added some bungy cords, paint brushes, vintage pencils (can't leave behind either), some nails, above items and a measuring stick. Thinking of going tomorrow.  I saw a vintage dresser that i been wanting and now regret not offering anything for it.  It was $30 and what turned me off is that it needed work. Yes, i know all vintage furniture needs a little TLC, but i have never re-purposed furniture, and it scared me off.  I need to start somehow, so If i find tomorrow i will buy it.  Kicking myself for not doing today.

googled and found at flickerhivemind webpage

Have a great week!
