What I found (Part 3)

I didn't get a chance to go to any yard sales over the weekend but did check out an estate sale on Thursday.  It was advertised as the home of someone who hadn't thrown anything away in 50 years.  These are the words I LOVE to read.  And apparently so does everyone else, because when I got there an hour early there were already about 40 people ahead of me.   The truth is, most of what was inside was clothing and fabric, lots and lots of fabric.  I was able to grab a few things but it wasn't heavy on the knick -knacks and home decor like I was hoping.

Misc piles of clothes
Vintage Party Supplies
I was able to score a large box of vintage party supplies.  Most still unopened! 

Brass Bonsai Tree Wall Plaque
As a child of the 80s these made me so happy to find.  There were actually 2 identical pairs that I grabbed, but I'm keeping one of them for me.   :)

Did you find anything this weekend that you are keeping for you?


  1. Oh, I am LOVING that brass bonsai tree! What an amazing score. I too had jellies growning fun!

  2. Love the tree, love that purse and the jellies are making me smile. (Teenager durring the 80's, here. Jellies, Madonna and black rubber bracelets) :)

  3. Jellies! The pair I had growing up was white! I think I wanted clear.

  4. I would love to have gone to such a sale!Sounds like fun.

  5. I had a pair of white shoes just like that - back in the day :D Found a few interesting things this weekend but can't wait for estate sale season to get back in full swing!

  6. I love that picture of the blue birthday crowns. It's almost strange to see so many happy birthday crowns in one place, since you usually only see one at a time :)

    Like everyone else, I totally had a pair of jellies very similar to those. Mine were kindof a semi-transparent black with some sparkly thing going on.

    To answer your question, we're keeping a lot of the stuff we found this week! Some to share, and some to keep... always a good policy so we keep improving our own space, too.

  7. amazing jellies, perfect for summer <3
