I went to three estate sales this morning. The first one was close to my house and was from one of the best company's in El Paso. As I get there, maybe 5 minutes after opening. I see no cars, no line and I go in anyway knowing it wasn't a good one. You never know. I went in and spend a bit and didn't find anything that i liked. I suffer from empty hands syndrome, so I just bought a letter holder for .50.
The next sale was 20 minutes away and it was the second part of a sale that happened last week and that i couldn't attend due to me getting bronchitis. I like the lady that runs the sale her name is Sylvia. Only bad part is that she never posts prices on most of the items, so it is always a risk. This house was full and it was the second part; the person was a hoarder. There was food everywhere, a lot of course expired, but some good. I don't buy food. A lot to look at, but of course full of people so it is hard to move around. This person collected a lot of different things. They had dolls, food, owls, tools, and clothes galore. I saw a lot of people taking good stuff and I can only wonder what was gone last week. This is the home where i found this weekend's treasures. I found some storage bins for screws/nails, a soapstone walrus from Alaska (i think it's soapstone?? Anybody knows what it is?), a pencil that says Divad (bought because it is vintage and because my Dad's name was David and it spelled backwards). The best find though is a bunch of 60's and 70's peanuts and other characters vintage books. The following are my new treasures:
|Also found these vintage earrings.|

|More vintage books. Love Dennis the Menace and just love the I love Broom Hilda. That one i had never seen before.|
Thank you for stopping by! Can't wait to see your finds.
Thanks for leaving comments! Enjoy reading and meeting new people.
