I was bound and determined to get to some estate sales last weekend. I found, what I thought were going to be some real gems on Craigslist, but was disappointed. When I think Estate Sale, I think an entire house full of old furniture, clothes, boxes of old dishes and oddities galore. The first sale, which took me up to Newport News was the closest I came to a gem. However, it did not promise the "sewing and vintage buttons" like in the ad. I was able to convince Mike to come to the others with me and we found a few things we just couldn't live without. And I think perhaps Mike actually enjoyed himself!
|I had to get this for Mike. At $1, even if it didn't work I wasn't out much. To our enjoyment, it works awesome!|
|I think we'll be seeing some new music cards coming from Leo Walker and his Great Dance Bands.|
|Inside pages of the band book.|
|Mike convinced me to get this Ginger Jar. After some research, I learned the peacock |
design on this jar means "bounty." The woman who lived in the house certainly had it!
|1946 Life Magazines. Only 10 cents an issue then, I paid $3 for two!|
|Canasta set, kinda like 500 Rummy, but you play with 4 people in teams.|
|The big gold necklace reminds me of a worm...a really fat one...which is why I just HAD to have it.|
