Day two....

Can you believe that day two was even bigger and better than day one of this fabulous estate sale? That's because I found some real gems AND got it all for half price!! These boots were in the garage of the house. I have been looking for very old boots like these to use as witches boots at Halloween for display and I plan to put fresh flowers in them and have them at my Junk Bonanza booth. So cool! This gorgeous scale with led crystal dishes was $8. Woohoo!And these paper umbrellas!?! They were in a bag in the bottom of a work bench in the garage!! I got 5 of them. They will also be adorning my booth at Junk Bonanza. Right now they are on our kitchen ledge. Love them!
Finally a bunch of misc goodies. These plaques are a surprise gift for a special someone.

Fun! Fun! Fun!

Neat estate sale. I love those boots and the plaques are adorable. You sure have good luck with your finds! I also wanted to stop by to remind people I'm having a give away to celebrate my two beautiful granddaughters. All anyone needs to do is stop by and leave a comment by Aug 15. And congratulations again on the success of your tea party.

Laume said...

Love your new scales. And umbrellas. I have some old umbrellas and no place to display them. Wandering through a local antique/junque shop today I thought of you and a lot of the other crafty bloggers I read and wondering - where do these women display all their lovely finds!? And not only the great stuff they find,for I'm a scavenger too, but then add the art they make into the equation and ... where does it all go? Is that why you all do etsy? So you can keep making stuff?

Renee :) said...

Artsymama,you defnitely have great taste as you find the most beautiful things ever & create the most amazing things!I look at your blog aspiring to be like you & maybe find all the great things that you find.Your pics keep me excited to try crafting as I haven't yet made anything to even show on my blog,which is quite boring at the moment.You definitely deserved to be in all crafting magazines as you are the best!If only I could visit you just one day & tag along on your estate sale trips,oh what fun that would be!Well,just wanted to say keep up the great job as it really helps keep me wanting to do more. :)

My heart just went pitty-pat-sigh when I saw the plaques. I had two of those gorgeous girls on my wall when I was growing up. Thank you for sharing.
