So the one teeny bit of detail I've not discussed regarding estate sales:
I WANT IT ALL. EVERYTHING. Usually at every sale. Yep, uh-huh, that's mine. Just go ahead and put that in my pile over there. No, that's not the stuff left to sift through and price--that's my pile.
"It" about spun out of control today:
Drexel dining table and six originally upholstered chairs for $245...I practically passed out. It's gorgeous and I really hate our current ugly, boring Slumberland table...that part time job is sounding more and more appealing. Maybe the table will still be there on 50% off day!
I wanted everything on top of it, too.
Sorry about the blurry picture; I was trying to act fast...
A lamp! And we actually need one:
Love the African wall hangings & buffet:And these two chairs with ottoman had me swoo.ning. Someone bought them when we were there. She looked rich. I wanted to smack her *gently*.
All beautiful, wonderful, amazing, SO MINDY things but this little girls' education is more important:
Guess I'll stick to little $1 items...it's hard to do!
If you're curious, here's what the outside of the estate sale house looks like. The house has already sold; bummer because it had some excellent mid-century originality to it, including kitchen cabinets. I hope the new owners have an appreciation for the quality and beauty of things of that era & don't demo it!
Good bye for now! Don't forget giveaway day at UndertheSycamore...it's insane.
