A Funny Little Estate Sale..

Saturday morning we set out to go to a garage sale that I was invited to on Facebook and found an Estate Sale on the same street. I don't know about you.. but we call that  LUCKY!


It wasn't an estate sale in the classic sense.. it was more like a "We are selling everything in our house backyard sale."


Nothing was priced… so #1 and #3.5 did a lot of.. "Do you know how much this thing is?"


Stuff wasn't really organized.. it was just set outside in boxes.. but you didn't know if they were selling it by the box.. or individually.


More stuff…


What I bought…


cute apron huh?


See that teapot? It matches #1's violet Lefton coffee set she received from her grandparents.  They originally gave the coffee set to #1's Great Grandparents.. and #1 loves it.  She was so excited to get this for .50 cents!


Our big find of the day?  A wedding announcement from the 1970's.. from a couple that goes to our church!  How cool is that?

Help! An Estate Sale Threw Up In My House..

The last 10 days or so I spent helping my Mother and Father in law at their estate sale.  It was a BLAST.. so much fun I'm thinking about doing it for other people. 🙂   They gave us TONS of fabulous stuff.. + We brought all the left overs from the estate sale to our house to sort out between 2 different auctions and a couple of spectacular things for eBay.   Here's what my house looks like while we are sorting…

This is the best looking part of the mess…

Nice house… beautiful fall leaves.

Old books and paintings.


I bought quite a bit of stuff.. but forgot to take a photo!  Hopefully I'll get that done after Trick or Treating tonight!

Stuff I Didn’t Buy at this Estate Sale

Yesterday I ventured to the big city of Leawood.. and found a

pretty neat garage sale.  The problem with this sale.. it was


leawood kansas, garage sale, estate sale, head shelves

I love these.. What are they called? (they were $75.00 each)

vintage lighting, entryway lighting

I liked this big entryway type light..

vintage dishes

Loved these dishes.. but they were like $20 – $100.00 a piece!

See this little pig?  That’s an American Bisque Polka Dot

pig.  I collect those.. but this one was more than I wanted

to pay..

See that cute little pig? It’s a Fitz and Floyd..

I love the big wood head and the coat rack.

I love the house.. I wish I could have seen the inside..

Loved this bed.. it was marked $600.00.

#2 found quite a few books he wanted.. and a lovely vintage

leather Kenneth Cole messenger bag.. and just like his grandpa

he hondled them and got it all for less!
