I called my friend early Saturday morning and said, "There's an estate sale. I'm leaving the house now. If you want to go, be ready in 20 minutes!" Needless to say, she was ready when I got there. She was even outside shoveling snow.
ONE LONELY ESTATE SALE
There was only one estate sale in the whole area, but it took a bit of finding. Once we got there, we actually found some decent things. Here's what I brought home...a retro lampshade, an fabulous old register cover, a super cool table with an iron base, and three pieces of glass.
Three pieces of glass, you ask? Yes, it's extra special glass! See those edges? My father-in-law works with glass and says these aren't made anymore. They were often used in old medicine cabinets, which is probably what these are from.
Add to that a wheeled laundry cart, a vintage window fan, and a lined basket on a stand.
I have one more 2008 Junking Weekend to cover, so that will be the next post. Then I'll be sharing how I've put a lot of this stuff to use. My problem is never what to post, but what to post first! I have so many things to share! Please come back!
