Estate sales and antique fair finds
Shopping at estate sales and antique fairs is a passion of mine. You never know what treasures you'll find.
Over the past few weekends, I attended an antique fair and an estate sale. I got this lace last weekend at an estate sale.
I am always on the lookout for china. I especially like teacups and small plates. I picked up these plates at the estate sale.
These will be perfect for tea parties.
I think this one is my favorite.
I thought this one was pretty too. And since it has so many colors in it, it will match up with many of my teacups.
Lately I'm into antique tins. I thought this one was sweet.
And just look at the other side of it. I got this at the estate sale. It was a good one, the sale was at an antique dealers home. Wish I could have gotten there on the Friday but as you can see Saturday was still a good day for unique finds.
This one looked all New Englandy so I bought it.
I forgot to mention I went to Sage Farm antiques right before Easter. This tablecloth was so cute I just had to have it.
A few weeks ago, I went to an antiques fair at a local church. I purchased this pristine set of hankies. The burgundy one is my favorite.
The set was in it's original box.
I like this hankie because of it's colors.
I went to two estate sales today, but, nothing caught my eye. That's ok, I've done enough damage lately.
