Estate Sale finds - Lynn Fern

Estate Sale finds

Friday morning I dropped the girls off at school and took off to an estate sale. I will be honest I was afraid it was going to be one that posted amazing pictures and then get there only to find crapola!!  


My mindset was well if there is nothing good, I will go to Hobby Lobby & HomeGoods.  

I pulled up to 2 big giant tents set up, tons of furniture outside of the tents...and FREE coffee!!  Now that my friends is an estate sale. 


I thought that since it started at 9 and I got there at 9:30 I had probably missed out by the looks of the line of cars, people walking out with boxes of things, and so on.  But, luckily I didn't miss out!!


It was pure awesome!!

Some things were a little pricey, but overall they had things marked right, and they were willing to negotiate.  All in all I walked away with some great bargains!

Wanna see?

A box full of Mason Jars & 2 French's Mustard Jars!



4 Pyrex bowls


You will be seeing these cool doors in my house!! :)

Cupboard 

Cute bench with a little storage area


 Pie Safe...adorable


Crates

These posts are from an old estate in the Hudson Valley.  They were used on the stairway leading to the upstairs.  Can you imagine!!  I got all 6 of them.  I am planning a table & will use the other 2 for another project!


This is an old iron candle holder.  I got 2 of them...


Great estate sale!!

Saturday was our village wide yard sale from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm.  I had been looking forward to making my way to different homes this year to see what was being offered.

I printed out my list of addresses and made myself a map of how I would go down street by street.  In some areas of the village the streets are very narrow.

I only managed to find a few items, but it was a gorgeous day out.

My favorite find was this little teal Westinghouse fan.  It is in perfect working order.  


I also found these leather bound books.  

I found a really old trunk, a sled, an old metal lunch box (it reminded me of the one my daddy used to carry), and a side table. 

That was my finds.  I left around 8:45 and met up with my crew at 10 for Katie's soccer game, headed across the street to the church that was holding the appletime festival.  I grabbed a cup of yummy pecan coffee and a piece of pumpkin cake!! And, headed back out for a little longer.  I was home by 12:30 and enjoyed the remainder of my day with my girls. 

All in all a great weekend for some great finds.  The weather was nothing short of perfection.

  3. I am sort of jealous. Those doors? I have been looking for a vintage looking fan for months. They are usually really expensive. Gosh - you are going to have some fun decorating ahead! You must have a big car...a must have for junkers. BTW - your blog always looks so fresh.
