Where Did Last Week Go???

These are a few of the items I'm getting from the estate sale... I have a "Tab" on file at the house.
Aren't these button cards the sweetest and of course the doggie button is awesome :)

Always Love vintage Paper!!!

This darling, pink, chippy, enamel top table was in the outside storage shed and the feet are in tough shape...however...mine for now!!!

Just a couple of photos of my space for this month's sale...which starts on Thursday...

I'm hoping the sales will be better this month...need some Christmas money :)
This is going to be another fast week....daughter and Grand daughter are in a wedding on Saturday :) I'll be sure to take some pics :) My hours at HQ were changed so that I wouldn't miss the wedding.
Today it has felt like FALL...sunny skies and temps a little more "normal".
Last week I was at the estate house 4 days. Hubby went with on Saturday and cleaned out the garage. It wasn't too bad. 3 rooms are already, garage just needs a price list, so that leaves the main floor to price. Pricing is the toughest part. You want people to buy the things, but you can't give them away and the owner has "prices" in mind...
Sorry that I'm jumping all over with my thoughts...I just don't want to forget anything!!!
I Love spell check... to visit you gals and see what you have been doing.
Deb :)

Hey Deb!
Oh they put those old buttons on the cutest cards back in the day didn't they!? I loved seeing your booths...I hope you sell out this month! Looks like some great treasures to be had in there! I know one thing...I'd sure love to go plunder in your booth! LOL! It sounds like you've been very busy...I don't know where a week went either. It's like I blinked, and a week went by! Sometimes it's like that. I'll be looking forward to seeing the wedding photos that you take...going to a wedding sure sounds like fun! ... Have a great night!
Big Hugs,

I have some of the vintage cards that were my Mother-in-laws. We cleaned out her house after she passed away and I snagged those. Happy to hear the estate sale prep is going well and wish I could come:( Have a blessed day!

Those are the sweetest button cards, and the greeting cards are adorable too! I've started a collection of those, and I'm wondering when enough is enough?! Oh, and you MUST, must keep that pink table!!

I just love those cards and paper, but I fell in love with that enamel table, years ago I had one just a little bigger, it had green legs and a little drawer. Have a great week I aam sure you will.

Good luck garage saling!

If your garage sale doesn't bring in enough Christmas money, I have another way you can earn some in your spare time. Check out my blog for all the details. I'm short on cash this year unfortunately so I'm earning all my Christmas money this way :)

Good luck!

goldenbird said...

Your space looks great, Deb! Wow, I was surprised to read you are still working on the house for the estate sale. Hope you have lots of sales so you have extra Christmas money.

Dogwood said...

Oh, you always have the most fun banners. Another great one. I really like it.

Love seeing all the lovely items.

Have fun at the wedding.
