Thrifting Update - May 1

This past week, on top of holding my own garage sale, I made it to three estate sales. One was FABULOUS! And I didn't get there until the second day. Half of a large pole shed - FULL! I walked away with some beautiful linens and a couple other nice little finds. The other two estate sales were on their final days but I still found some nice things - and all at 1/2 off. Not bad!

A stack of hankies and Washington D.C. scarf from the Pole Shed sale along with a great old book with a fabulous cover, one book end and a blue vase from a townhouse sale on it's final day. 

A Rosemeade swan planter, pink doll house furniture and vintage puzzles from the townhouse sale and a great taper candle mold from another sale (it cost a whole $1). 
A beautiful linen in near perfect condition from the pole shed sale.

My FAVORITE ITEM of the week. A clothespin apron with two adorable appliqued bluebirds on it!
It cost about $1.60. TOO COOL! (Found at the Pole Shed Sale).

A set of 4 great vintage napkins, a milk blass strawberry and a flowered towel from the pole shed sale and a bag of vintage sewing fasteners from the townhome sale. 
Fabulous pot holders from the Pole Shed Sale. I have found that washing them with a nice coat of baking soda and then letting them sit in the sun bleaches out a lot of stains they may have. I no longer let stains deter me from buying as I have had such good luck with baking soda and sun. 
My favorite pot holder. I just love the vintage feedsack used to make this. So much history in one little piece!

Planters from the pole shed sale. They were .50 each and I am going to fill them with hens and chicks and sell them at the market this weekend.

  1. Hi sweet Carrie! You found so many gorgeous vintage goodies and at great prices too! You can't find things like that around here! :( But, I am happy for you sweetie and love to see your finds! I hope you have fun at the market and will do well. I am sure you will sell all your pretties! Much love and many blessings, Paula xo
