Estate Saleing Report

Well it's not technically a report since I've only been to one estate sale in the past several weeks, but, I found a couple of neat things I want to show you!

I had a million better things to do but the devil on my left shoulder kept saying, "just go to one sale, it won't hurt."

So I did. The family was running it, so, things were el-cheapo!

Item 1: Felt owl bulletin board
Items 2 & 3: Vintage Wilton foil cake pans ($.50 each):
(Although I do not have a daughter, I had to get the Strawberry Shortcake one; I'm fond of her and loved the cakes my mom made us as wee ones)

Items 4 & 5: Boontonware melamine bowls

Item 6: Boontonware melamine platter:
(the cookies are Kill.Er. Click here for recipe)

Item #7: Small turquoise vase perfect for the mantle
A total of $3.25 spent. Well spent.

While we're on the topic of vintage, click here to shop a kick-butt Etsy store I recently discovered. I'm salivating over the s/p shakers on page 1!

Those cake pans are SO cool! I'm so glad you found them. And those cookies look marvelous. I might have to go make them . . .

You really are a very clever shopper. Love the cake tins. Stylie as we would say in NZ.
Popped over to the etsy store I can see why you love the s&p shakers. You never know maybe somebody will bless you. ;)

I've been wanting to go to estate sales since you wrote your first post! I pass by them, not wanting to haul all 3 of my kiddos through a house filled with people and things! Someday I will! Great finds. =)
