Friday finds and Saturday's stuff

It seems that the Friday estate sales are pretty darn good. This sale was at an older home and they seem to have the best stuff. It was a "digger" sale also :)17 hankies for 1.00 each is the going price at estate sales..It was so HOT & HUMID at the sale that I had to use one of the hankies to wipe the sweat off my face...eww..

Vintage Christmas glasses...SWEET!! old cards from the 40's, and little bit of this and that...





Old hat, sweet train case for 4.00 and I think my favorite is the vintage Christmas candy box...it still had the wrappers in it :) $1.50 for the candy box.


This awesome bench was bought at an moving sale...$2.00...can you believe that!!! I bought it on Thursday.



These finds are from Saturday. Hubby said I paid too much for the glass lady and man pictures...I don't think SO!!! Of course it's time to pick up seasonal items for the monthly sale.

Garden Junk book was only $4.00 and will stay on my book shelf. I so enjoy books.
Today we went back for the 1/2 off deals and I found my chandelier...for only 12.00 that's $12.00 and I'll show you that soon. It's SWEET!!! I didn't see it yesterday and am so happy that I found one. God does give us richly all things to enjoy.
It finally cooled off today..THANK YOU, LORD!!!
As you have read or seen on TV the PGA Gold Tourney was here. I'm not into golf...so not a big deal for me.
It's going to be a busy week. Tomorrow lunch with a friend, Tuesday Mall of America with Kailee and her little Tuesday friend, Wednesday, finish getting my space ready for the sale that starts on Thursday. Friday we are going to a concert that hubby won from a radio program and Saturday I work at HQ.... I could use another ME!! and also on Saturday is the "Wizard of OZ" gala by Two Crazy Crafters...I must not forget that!!!
May not be around much this week....I'll stop by when I can...
Warmly,
Deb :)

I stumbled across your blog, very nice! I love the bench that you found, I'm looking for one similiar to that for my own home...too bad I live so far away! Lisa :-)

Love hankies and I ALWAYS buy them when they are at the sales. LOVE the bench and you stole it... amazing buys! Have a blessed busy week!

Michele said...

Hi Sis ~ I absolutely love that bench...what a steal that was!

I really need to get my Halloween decor boxes out of the basement to see what I have. Knowing me, I'll probably buy stuff that I already have! It's been so nuts at our house lately, that I really don't have room for those boxes.

Have a great week...sounds like you'll be one busy little lady!

Hugz,
Lil Sis

Diane said...

I LOVE the little Christmas glasses, I have never seen those before! Have fun at Malls of America, my daughter Breezy AKA The Pink Door will be in your neck of the woods. She flies in today for Rock Stars Concert. Small World. Have fun!
Hugs, Diane

What a steal that bench was. It is a blank canvas too. Oh the possibilites. Speaking of steals, so were those hankies. At least I think so, because in my neck of the woods (Northern Calif)they would have been asking $3.00 to $4.00 a piece for them. As always I will stand there dumbfounded thinking, its the end of the day and you still haven't sold these very sought after items. Maybe it's time rethink the price.
Have a great week. ~Sue

Hi DEB!!!
You always have such FUN finds. I did get out to my FAV thrift store for some goodies! But we don't see many garage sale's this time of the year.

We too, have been HOT/Humid..summer's finally arrived! Spent yesterday w/hubs family at the lake and it was in the 90's..the only place to be outside when its that hot!

Have a great week!

Simply Dandy said...

I can't believe $2.00 for that bench....that's crazy. That was quite the find. You get the Best Deal of the Week Award for that one.

The Queen of Clearance said...

two dollars for that bench? Man Im having some thrifty jealousy right now! lol. Great finds!

Twyla and Lindsey said...

Deb, that bench is beautiful! I sure hope you're keeping that:), but I bet you plan on selling it. It is wonderful! You didn't pay too much for the silhouettes. Around here they would each be more than you paid for the pair. Wonderful finds as always! Hope your cooling down by now. Have a nice week! Twyla

Holly said...

Hi, Deb! Even though I'm such a hanky lover, the candy cane glasses are my favorite! One of my little dreams is to one day go to an estate sale with a girlfriend. I'm too shy to go alone! ♥

Sandi said...

Hi Deb,
Love all your finds especially that bench!! What a deal!! I will give you $4.00 for it and you double your money instantly. LOL

Those hankies were a great find too. I purchase hankies for $1.00 or less and don't pay more than that. I think it is crazy to see a hanky for $4.00.
Can't wait to see the chandelier !!
Blessings~

hugs ♥

Once again you've got the magic touch for finding great vintage things! Love that white elephant and that squirrel, the vintage cards, and the old candy box! You'll love that Garden Junk book. I have her two other "junk" books, and they are some of my fave books, that I like to pull out from time to time, and get insired!

Coralie Cederna Johnson said...

Judy said...

Wow you found some awesome things and awesome prices. I got an old Singer for $15 but it needs a new cord...should I get one or try to sell as is?

Rosie said...

Once again you've found some awesome treasures, but the bench for $2??? You gotta be kidding! :)

Linda said...

Deb, you hit the mother lode! I collect silhouettes and you found two wonderful ones...hugs, Linda

Shanda said...

Loved seeing all your nice finds. I think maybe you should keep the cool bench, its nice, but pure profit if ya sale it. I closed my shop shelves for now, not enough time to devote to it what it takes. I'm gonna pick back up through the winter months maybe, I am always confused about what to buy, I always want to KEEP the good stuff and that is a huge problem for me, wish I had you here to help me.

Ignore the poor grammar near the end of my previous comment :o) I started to write "You ARE the Garage Sale Gal after all" or something like that, but changed it and didn't delete the "AND"...oh brother...

HUGS,
Becky

Queenie said...

Hey Deb!
That bench is beautiful...and the price "woohoo" for you girl!! All of the finds were so fun to see. I found alot of goodies the last couple of weeks...I found all of my favorite things! I couldn't believe how many things I found over the last two weeks that actually coordinated in color and actually looked pretty together....all from different places! LOL! Sometimes it happens like that! LOL! I Hope you have a great week...it sounds like a busy, but fun one...drop by when you can.
Big Hugs,
Queenie

I love the silhouette pictures that your hubby said you paid too much for! My mother used to paint silhouette and I had one of her pairs framed after she passed away. I'm always on the lookout for silhouettes now. You always seem to find great things!!
