I will admit I did not think it was a promising sale. The house was on a corner three blocks from us - a small ranch with one small shed in the back corner. Very neat and tidy.
I searched through the online pics and saw a couple of things.
I like this estate sale agency - it has fair prices and clearly marked items.
There is no order to my photos.
And many things did not get photographed.
The first day I stayed in the house and returned for a second scouting.
I noticed no one had been in the shed.
I asked it there was stuff for sale and was told a few things.
Like this willow basket, metal BREAD embossed tray, and the old tire pump with a wooden handle.
All sitting on a orchard basket.
I found this in the pile of fishing stuff.
It collapses flat. I think it might be a minnow bucket.
Any other ideas?
Yes, that is my green hand truck - I took it with me the second day, third trip to pick up the green cabinet I posted about yesterday.
A large stack of salt and flour sacks.
Always buy old rakes.
The adz is rather unique.
Someone honed a tree limb to make a new handle for it.
Three Victorian frames with the original glass.
The morning glories print is probably original, but the other two are mid-century.
The green tole magazine rack is lovely.
Wire freezer baskets.
A gas can.
Two shoe lasts.
A tin of canape cutters.
A blue-tined tiller.
Two wrought iron hooks.
I see the red wicker - that is for Friday Finds! It came from the thrift store.
Stacks of aluminum molds.
Yet another colander.
Silverware in a wooden bread basket.
A neat old fruit crate - unfortunately the mice had eaten the paper label.
Oh, yes, I did forget to tell you about the mice.
Only dead ones.
A stack of Riverside Classics
Two packages of linen shirt collars for men still in the paper envelope.
I found a Madonna planter.
And a collection of shoes.
The hightop is a souvenir with the label still attached.
The white cowboy boot is a small wall pocket.
The others just decorative.
I love tiny things.
Except for estate sales - I want them in the ginormous size.
So I went three times to the same sale.
I could have gone a fourth time.
