Tag Archives: estate sale


I have always loved a good garage sale.  The thrill of the hunt, the adrenaline of scoring a deal.  Lots of people have told me that I should try estate sales, but the whole concept sort of freaked me out.  Creeping through the junk of someone who has recently passed seemed a little intrusive.  Now though, now I see the light.  These people need me to snag onto their treasures, so they don’t wind up in a cold, wet, dark basement.

We bought so much stuff.  Seriously, I am not sure if this estate sale was just a rare gem full of things I didn’t even know I would love….or if they are all just that good.  I am really hoping for the later.  Just look at some of these goods, while keeping in mind that we are leaning hard on a “hometown fair” theme for the wedding. the-complete-guide-to-DIY our-treasures I loved some of the old tins so much that I worked them into the mantle.  Now when I walk by I stare just a little too long, which makes Tim think I am having a stroke or something.  Nope, just admiring old beauty.  I have a mild obsession with these old tins now, is there a rehab for that? treasures-that-made-it-to-the-firplace details-of-my-sweet-antique-tin-mantal Just for some hump day fun…I want to play a game.  Our biggest purchase was this box.  We fell in love on Saturday, and came back on Sunday to see if we could score a deal…and boy did we. a-guessing-game So what do you think is in the box?  Let’s play twenty questions, ask me anything to help you get to your final guess.  This should be fun, this is fun right.

Do you prefer garage sales or estate sales?
