KEY TO MY HEART . . .ESTATE SALES!
Hello Ladies: Thought I would give you a quick look at all the fun things I purchased this weekend at an Estate Sale. The items I am about to show you cost me $33.24. You know when you just hit the Mother Lode! That's what happen on Friday morning.
I had been invited to an Estate Sale in Glendale, so my friend and I traveled all of 5 minutes to this amazing home. The lady that lived there, loved the exact same things I love. It was so hard not to buy everything in sight. However, as luck would have it, I was broke, so I really had to pick and choose. These were my picks.
You see that great Canister Set. It is Lefton, the pattern name is Americana Rose. I have wanted this set forever. However, it was too expensive for me. The Tea pot alone, is worth $100. I am going to sell it because, I already have one. Interested, let me know? I also have the sugar and creamer. I did not own the pitcher however. Remember is was all part of the $33.24.
Do you notice that beautiful hand mirror? Did I ever tell you I collect hand mirrors? Well, I do and this one has this great Art Nouveau lady on it. It is really so pretty. Much better than the pictures.
The two French hens were $2.50 each, I could not pass them up. They are both quite large.
There are a pair of tea cups I will show you closer on a Tuesday. One of them is a set by Mudd Pie. I love the look of Mudd Pie, it has a fairy tale look that is hard to resist.
Of course the sterling silver tray and the cranberry glass is amazing. I also got some milk glass hands that are just stunning. Did I tell about the sterling silver spoons? It was so fun. I guess I am glad, I was broke because it could have been real bad. I loved everything she had. Anyway, just had to share the "loot"!
The lady was not giving discounts on items until Sunday, but for some reason, when I asked she said yes. I was the only one she gave a discount to. God was on my side for sure. I am posting this at mid-night. I am not too excited! Looking forward to see you on Tea Cup Tuesday! Hugs, Martha
