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.


Those plates are gorgeous!

"This one looked all New Englandy so I bought it"-- That's basically my mentality for anything I buy (including food!) :p

Hello, I've just landed on your blog from A New England Life. Just want to tell you that The Fisherman's Friend tin is from Fleetwood, Lancashire, England. About 50 miles from me and of where I have many childhood memories. The lozenges are still made there, my dad always used to love them. I enjoyed your blog by the way.
