Well, I am going to have to divide up my finds into a couple posts, and first we will start with the giant purse haul I brought in! A total of 9 purses for a total of $9!!! Can't beat that!
This little bitty beaded clutch has a handle and apparently is Made In Czechoslovakia, which isn't even a country any more, which is pretty neat!
All right and now for Pyrex! In my last post I mentioned how I saw some fridgies on an estate sale website, this is the pictures from their website:
I had to develop a strategy: the in-home sale started at 7am and the store sale started at 9am. I decided to show up at the home sale at 6am to get my line number (14) and after I left there, hit a rummage sale then go to the shop. I realized that I wouldn't get real close to the front of the line at the shop, but I figured everyone else would be going mostly towards the furniture. I got my fridgies at the home sale and there was so much more, so I spent a little time there! I will show off my other items soon!
When I got to the shop, I grabbed my number for my spot in line-- 26. Not bad, but not great. I was still there 45 minutes before open and they had a bunch of chairs out front, so I sat and enjoyed the cool morning for a while. As I was sitting there, a man approached me and asked what number I had, I told him and he said, "Give me your number." Not demanding or anything, but I didn't really know what he was doing! I thought he was joking so I said "No, I need this to get in!" He said he would trade me and he handed me a folded up number once I handed him mine. I opened it and it was the number 2! He told me he had gotten there at 3am! At this place you can get a limit of 2 numbers (in case you were getting one from a friend, etc.) so he grabbed two just so he could give the second one away! I told him that was so nice of him and that I really appreciated it, cool right?!
Well here is what I got from both sales:
A full set of Spring Blossom Green and a 1.5 quart and 1.5 cup Gooseberry fridgie, I got all of what I wanted and more!
I also stopped at a thrift store near my work and picked up this cute little Avon owl bottle. As I discovered on ebayunderground, people don't really buy Avon bottles much, so you should stay away from them, but this one was too cute to pass up, and it's box was adorable, too! People really love owls right now, so it will go into my Etsy shop!
I am a little tired so I will link up tomorrow, but I will have more pictures later this week of everything from this weekend! Oh and a little tidbit that I learned was that next week, the estate sale company will be having their sale at a hoarder's house. They said that most everything is new in box! I am hoping for some NIB Pyrex, but that might be dreaming big! I cannot wait until they post their pictures on Thursday!!!! I will maybe make a post about what I will be running for! Sounds like another early Saturday for me!
