Estate Sales, How I've Missed You!

It's been really hard to go to estate sales recently. Three kids under five in a house full of someone else' antiques kinda screams disaster waiting to happen to me. So, I just haven't tried it.  But today, I talked my sister into coming with me.  The kids ate their lunch in the car, she went in and I stayed with them. When she was done, we switched.

Last day sales mean: 50% off almost everything... or in my case, even more since they were only a few hours away from shutting the whole sale down. Here's what I found:

A Straw Purse for the Summer

4 Antique Ornaments (for replacement pieces)

Vintage Shoes

2 vintage aprons

And a pair of yellow pillowcases with hand stitched embroidery

Total- $6

Thanks, Elisabeth, for giving me the freedom to peruse a sale and for a lovely day at the zoo afterwards! Well, off to see a new baby and then the the Lawn, Flower and Garden Show.  Hope your day was just as lovely!

We did have fun- I only wish I hadn't left the stroller in the back of your car so we hadn't had to carry the baby through the entire thing! Guess I need to get it back sometime soon.
