Chucks and I went to two estate sales last weekend and came home with some great items.
Both sales were conducted by new-to-me estate agents, but I signed up to get email alerts because I was very impressed with the way the items were arranged, the professional way the sales were conducted, and the reasonable prices.
The first sale was for a event planning company downsizing their inventory.
There were multiples of everything.
A good mix of old and new.
Round green plant hangers.
Iron lantern hangers.
A primitive blue bench.
A beat up small box.
A black iron candle sconce - very medieval.
A very large frame.
Two worn suitcases.
A piece of oak from a piece of furniture.
At the next sale I found this small chest of drawers in the garage.
The drawers are numbered 6,7,8, and 9.
I could not find what was 1,2,3,4,and 5!
While loading the truck I found the rusty metal grate.
A large basket.
A gold frame.
An old work light - all metal.
What was in the large basket?
A quilt heart.
An oil can.
A berry basket of cookie cutters.
A small basket.
The number 2 (3 on the other side) blew across the Kroger parking lot - not part of the sale.
A tin of clothes pins.
A check box of drill bits.
An assortment of old jars with various hardware.
A distressed metal drawer filled with more hardware.
The first sale was run by Carolina Estate of Mine - what a delightful name.
The second sale was run by Smart Move - Thanks, Leasa and Marilyn!
Willie and Scout have been obsessed with hunting down the baby snakes in the liriope.
I take my snakes seriously and do not appreciate the two pups killing them.
I do not wish to be overrun by mice!
Chucks and I have managed to save a couple of them from certain death by dog.
However it was too late for this little cutie.
Scout was found chewing on his stiff little corpse.
I placed him in the nest on the windowsill.
Funeral arrangements to be announced at a later date.
|My Etsy shop is on vacation so I can clean up a bit and clear out items lingering too long.|
