~End of the Year Sale~

The garage and estate sales have been winding down in our area and once in awhile I can catch an auction or indoor sale. Over the last few years, I have gotten to know a lady that does estate sales for others or does complete estate buy-outs. She gave me a call the other day and told me I could come and buy early before the sale she is having the following week!! LUCKY ME!!! The most fun part of this deal is the fact that she didn't have things out of the boxes or priced yet! After about an hour and a half of digging, I came home with some wonderful goodies!!!
I bought a big tub of beautiful silver and these are the best pieces!
I love the embossed designs inside these large ladles!

Got the cute little chair for $3!! Has cute little cherub decals on the back.

I "married" this transferware lid to this white chamber pot ~ I think they go well together!! This silver plate pot has been repaired several times, but I think it only adds to it's already wonderful patina!!

China pieces, cute little clock and a cloche ~ just in time for a quick Christmas vignette!!

I also bought 8 canning jars of buttons!!

Mostly metal ones, but I feel some pretty jewelry projects comin' on!!!

I'm a sucker for children's readers--the illustrations are always so charming!

Since my house is a total disaster right now, I'm having a hard time finding an empty spot to take some pictures! So I decided to just set the bigger stuff outside my van!

The turquoise cabinet is to die for!! Perfect state of wear to the paint ~ Love it!!!!!
There were 2 of the little blue stools, but only hauled one out. Also got 2 lovely mirrors, a large suitcase and this cute white youth chair!

It makes me a little sad that winter is setting in and will be putting an end to alot of my junking!
Hopefully this load will last me for a little while!

I guess if I need a fix, I can always haunt the thrift stores!
Happy junkin' to all!!
