Ok, I promise not to just post about my estate sale hauls all the time, but GOOD LORD LOOK AT THIS ONE!
It was just too good to be true! This proves my theory about hitting up sales and shops out of town. I went to the sale specifically to buy a gorgeous 1930’s French handpainted bedroom set for Little Betty. And, of course, I couldn’t get out of there without loading up on other great goodies! Let’s take a look, shall we?
No, your eyes are not deceiving you. That is indeed an Enid Collins bag sparkling at you from behind those totally 80’s totally awesome belts. I NEVER find Enid at estate sales! I was giddy with excitement.
But the fun didn’t stop there! When I spied this chalet music/jewelry box complete with Alphorn player I snatched it up and clutched it so tightly with my greedy little hands I’m surprised I didn’t break it. And who could pass up a vintage box of 36 gay birthday candles? I do not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation when it comes to birthday candles, and neither should you.
Another thing I’m always on the lookout for at estate sales is anything vintage Christmas and boy howdy did I ever find it at this one! Bulbs, ornaments, and those sweet celluloid elf children. Perfection.
But friends and fellow rescuers of old junk, the real score of the day is yet to come. Just feast your eyes upon this:
Words do not begin to describe how much I adore this. This lovely little tin tea set is made by the Ohio Art company and I don’t think it will surprise you to hear that I feel a new collection coming on! This particular set could not be more perfect with it’s acorns, leaves, and squirrel-skunks! The colors are perfect for Little Betty’s playhouse and she is playing with it as we speak.
So thank you for indulging me another estate sale score post, and I promise to reward you with shots of my green bathroom next. Meanwhile, if you’re interested, the Enid and the 80’s heart belt will be showing up in my etsy shop!
