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.
