The garage sale was at a beautiful house built in 1898.
And the award for the most racist honey advertisement of all time goes to....
Her house was beautiful and she was very nice. We found some lovely picture-plate books on Victorian houses and a few small things.
The estate sale was at a modest mid-century home with too many things to look at. The couple there was moving into their RV and selling EVERYTHING from their house. They had all the essentials: clothing, dishes, books, toiletries, oil funnels, tools, furniture... but the milk crates were not for sale.
Here's most of what we actually bought:
We got a few more things than that including a yellow paint-splattered Cosco step stool for one dollar which I hope to be able to clean up. Did you see the wire-metal grocery cart? We got TWO of those! All the silverware, as well as a not-pictured drink cooler, is for a church picnic I have coming up (and it's even Oneida).
And the strangest thing I saw (I regret not having a picture of it) was a ziploc bag with around 14 bars of opened, and possibly used, soap. I am just dying to see the inside of their house because I can only imagine that they had twelve bathrooms and one bedroom.
In all, it was a pretty great day for estate sales.
