estate sale treasures...

Happy Monday!
How was your weekend?

We enjoyed some beautiful Fall weather here and my Saturday started out at a local estate sale right around the corner!  I spied four pairs of sweet baby shoes...


Isn't the box cute!  I think I will be saving these for our next White Event at the shop...


Then I brought home a box lot of old clocks...


I think I might keep a few of the black ones to add to my own collection.  They will look great in my Halloween displays...



I also bought this beautiful mirror...


I just love the detail...


While I should be buying for my booth I thought this one would look great painted white for me...


Don't you agree...


My next find was this wonderful old bureau...


I would love to keep this old beauty too but it is heading to my booth next week after Jim does some minor repair to the drawers...


I did bring home one other pretty painted piece that I am bringing to my booth tomorrow...


Love the shabby pale pink color...

Well, I am off to clean up my treasures and gather my other goodies to bring to my booth tomorrow.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful week!!

Some great 'for the booth' shopping. I just dry brushed white over an ornate gold frame similar to yours, waxed and polished a tiny bit and like the look. Usually I just paint all over the gold and wax.

I am just having a fit right now. I the little table is exactly what Mr. Vintage took out of our potting shed. He wanted to CHUCK it ~ but NOOOOO I told him I would do "something" with it. THANKS now I know - PINK it will be ;-)

Great finds Sandi! You'll arrange everything beautifully I'm sure. I meant to tell you that last week while I was working at the shop, I was browsing in your space and a customer said to me "I always love coming to this space, I feel like I'm in Paris when I enter it." Isn't that great? Thought you'd like to know!
Blessings & hugs,
Karen

Oh, lord. I would've run screaming for the hills if I saw a Stride Rite box. I wore SR only for YEARS. But the clocks and that dresser are AWESOME!!!
