Estate Sale Finds

I'm running a week behind with sharing my junkin' finds, but I still wanted to round them up and get some pictures before I packed them away.  Some of them will be headed to the August opening of The Paris Flea Market, and others just might be living with me for now.

Not a bad haul for an estate sale I wasn't going to attend.  I arrived two hours after the start
 of the sale and was kicking myself for not going out earlier because their prices were so reasonable.  I have visions of all the stuff that got away.

Advertising hangers from right here in little ol' Tracy.  Notice the paint splattered bench under all the stuff?  I forgot to get a lone picture of it, but it looks like years of yummy paint buildup.  I'm leaving it just the way it is.

When I opened up this children's Picture Word Book it put a big smile on my face.

I love the baby shoes and will probably end up planting these just like the last pair I found.

No frog should be left behind, even the grungy ones.

This Western Electric Company phone weighs a ton.  Unfortunately it doesn't work, but wouldn't it be fun just for display?

Last but not least, a pair of Syroco wall sconces from the early 1960s.  They were kind of an ugly, flaky, shiny gold mess when I found them.....nothing a coat of paint and a little distressing didn't cure.

  12. Great finds, now don't feel bad that you did not get their earlier, people don't like the same stuff we do, so I am sure you got all the great stuff, that they had no idea was great stuff !

  13. Youd did great, Betsy. I love especially the phone and the frogs. It's amazing that those things were still there when you came. Carol is probably right. The early visitors were looking for different stuff then we.
    Have a great week!
    Hugs,

  16. Amazing finds! I didn't know it was even possible for those old fashioned phones to still work with our modern phone lines. A working one would be such a fun novelty to have!

  22. I just read your comment about French Country Cottages road trip down the world's longest yard sale.

    You should put together a route through California's greatest shops/sales for thrifting. You have the knack of finding the best stuff.
