Azalee giving me the evil eye and asking, "Why, why, why?"
I schedule posts to publish at 4am and email alerts go out at 7am.
Last week on my Friday Finds post I claimed I would not be shopping because of all the treasures piling up around here.
At 10am I was driving to the bank. There was a detour for a tree service which sent me driving past a small house with a group of vintage lamps in the front yard and a sign saying "Estate Sale".
Well, I had to stop even though there was an unfinished dresser in the back waiting for a makeover.
Even though I had little money.
Turns out the couple was conducting their own sale with bargain basement prices to get rid of everything because the house had sold sooner than expected.
A short ladder and a tall easel.
Don't get too excited the "trophies" are Hobby Lobby.
A woven 60's Bates spread, two lace tablecloths, and ...
She said tea cart, and I thought tea cart.
In good condition.
After reading the stamp on its bottom, it is definitely NOT a tea cart.
Some kind of rolling cart used in a mortuary made by the Tennessee Coffin and Casket Co., Chattanooga, Tenn.
For those who like oddities, it is now in my booth.
It's that thing looking like a demure tea cart.
There were many of these framed prints and advertise- ments.
I selected two babies.
Two Mother poems.
One Mother Love and one We Two.
Some forgotten son signed the back of Mother Love.
A vintage faux Hitchcock chair in black and gold.
Notice the bottoms of the each leg still has the original wrapping from the factory.
So underneath the legs are in pristine condition.
A large black leather satchel.
The wicker basket I will use.
I cannot pass up a round gold mirror - especially one with some age spots.
A caution light yellow enamelware top kitchen table with a working drawer.
There were a few other items stuffed into my car, but I am too embarrassed to even talk about them.
Another week, another vow.
I WILL NOT BE SHOPPING THIS WEEKEND!!!
Though I think I saw several estate sales in the paper ...
