My Saturdayfinds Estate Sale Treasures

The Ad Read Full Contents of House
Estate Sale 8:00-2:00

I arrived at 7:30 and the Garage was open
and the House would be Open at 8:00
But to be honest most of my treasures were
found in the garage!

The Christmas Goodies are always something I 
pick-up when I spot them.
Check out the Cardboard Santa comes with the reindeer
a bit tattered but appears to be all there

I just love the graphics on these!
No way I could have passed it up for a $1

This pair of Pillowcases are a rare and wonderful find
Most women today are way to busy to
tackle a project like these, so you know
that each stitch was made with love!!

In a Kitchen Cupboard these sweet treasures sat
Again the graphics on the Decor Jars
are just priceless!

And a box with more Vintage Christmas treasures!
With an asking price of $2.00 a steal!

Well I did get a few more things a pretty wool
cabin blanket and a couple of vintage automotive books.
Oh and I just might go back before they close and see
if prices have been discounted!
I hope your Treasure Hunts turned up
a few cool Vintage Sweets!
Thanks for stopping by and letting me
share in my excitement!

Happy Hunting,

Is that a tablecloth with strawberries on it? I love the pretty embroidery and the fun Christmas decorations! I would have gone wild! So many pretty things! ♥

Charlotte said...

Great finds! This week was OK because of a little rain, but not as good as the last three weeks. Love the red and white kitchen stuff.

Ann said...

Oh my goodness, those are the CUTEST pillow cases I have ever seen.!!!! Great Christmas finds.
Love the little vintage tin cans too. What a great haul today.

Amazing sale, Diane! And that's the third flour sifter I've seen like that this week! Hmmm... ♥

Julie said...

What marvellous treasures, Diane--well done today! Love seeing those vintage beauties--can't imagine anyone wanting to part with them...can you?!

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

Wonderful treasures! I love the cardboard Santa, they just don't make them as appealing (graphic wiae) today. Amd the pillowcases I adore. The sifter with apples on it, I have one! My husband found it at a yard sale a few years ago.

We've had rain today. I LOVE a rainy day,although not on my yard sale , second hand store Saturdays, yet I did have a horrible migraine today and wouldn't have made it out today. You've brightened my day by sharing your good luck!

Lisa said...

Oh I am so moving!!! We never have good stuff left in the south! It rots in the humidity and there are no old homes left!! All torn down for new neighborhoods! You really got great stuff!! I love all your goodies! Thanks for sharing!!
Hugs, Lisa

Lori said...

Diane, I just visited your etsy shop, I'd love the prayer planter, but held off ordering, do you have any pockets done? Did you sell the wedding one? Do you have any with a cake or childrens birthday or a cottage on it? My email is let me know,Lori

SueLovesCherries said...

Wow, this was a great day for you! Lots of fun stuff. Now, who would keep age-old Decor bottles in their cupboard all these years? Someone who knew you were waiting to scoop them up, I guess!

You did really well, what a great sale! I especially love the pillowcases. I've never really been to an estate sale, I usually stick to the flea market. But the prices you got were really good. Any tips on estate sales or how to find them?


Lori said...
