Last year, I hit several great auctions during the winter and early spring.
This year, they have not been as good or I have been unable to attend the ones with good potential.
I was starting to get very frustrated.
Recently, I have had better luck though – with two estate sales run by the same company.
I thought I would share some of my finds today…
Some are to keep, some are for projects and some are in preparation to hopefully open at Etsy shop soon?
This first one is so fun – it is an old lock but it has a latch on it that would be great to hang things from.
A large pile of freshly washed vintage hankies. These were quite the challenge to get out the musty smell but I finally won out.
Note, these are washed, not pressed.
I have looked for one of these for a while, a chicken feeder. Another lady had it in her hand for a long time, but she put it down and walked away.
Fair game in my book.
Oh, and some of the hankies have beautiful embroidered details.
These were kind of thrown in with everything else, one is a wooden flat spoon and the other – I have no idea.
This is one of my favorites. I got all three buckets, but the front one still has its farm label.
Couldn’t pass this baby up – yup, the year I was born.
I’ll save you the math – I am 41.
This was too good of a deal to pass up. It is a pheasant transferware pattern.
It is already in my kitchen hutch with all of its new transferware friends.
And lastly, some uniquely shaped ironstone bowls.
I have gone to almost every estate sale this company runs.
I know if they are doing it chances are its going to be pretty good.
They told me they have another one coming up soon and I realized it was the weekend of Brimfield (anyone going?).
I tried to convince them it was a bad choices because so many collectors would be at Brimfield – most importantly me and I wouldn’t be able to come!
But then, they also realized it is Mother’s Day weekend as well.
Keeping my fingers crossed they have rescheduled it so I can go!
Have a great day!
