This week Brian and I hit up a few estate sales, which are so different than thrifting. I love thrift stores because I can casually walk around and buy what I want, but estate sales are cool because you get to go through someone’s house and look through stuff. It can be kind of stressful though! Waiting in line before it opens, looking around to see who’s probably after the same stuff, and seeing people carrying around something I would’ve bought… it’s enough to give me anxiety :)
Here’s the silver tuna of scores. I’m so excited about this box of Pyrex casserole dishes! They all still have their lids and luster and no chips or scratches! Now I just need to reconfigure my Pyrex display to somehow find room for them…
I also picked up a box of vintage ephemera, some previously mailed and some brand new. There are a bunch of old envelopes and postcards, I especially love the old airmail envelopes. I also couldn’t resist a box of birds to add to my collection, one of the owls even plays music.
I love trying out different classic cocktails and it’s even more fun when you are armed with tools :) We picked up some old bar ware at one of the sales, I really like the silver pour spouts.
I’m really excited about this patio furniture and it’s going to be perfect for some backyard mojitos!
I also got some clothes but they need to be cleaned up and repaired, so I will wait for an outfit post to share. One of the sales had the BIGGEST collection of vintage clothes I’ve ever seen outside a shop! Unfortunately, I was in the backyard when they brought it out front and it was ravaged before I could get to it. Sad story, I know :(
A few vintage shop owners got to it first and watching them sort through their enormous pile of dresses on the yard was heartbreaking. Okay, that’s an exaggeration and I’m really happy for them. I’ll just keep telling myself that…This entry was posted in vintage and tagged Pyrex, t-store scores, vintage. ← galloping… the cat’s meow… →
