When it comes to estate sales,
it doesn't take much to make me happy.
I'm pretty much never one of the buyers there
for the furniture or other big items.
Even though estate sales of any kind
are pretty hard to come by around here,
it's still the small (and cheap!) things that make me happy :)
(And yes. I am probably the only person who would take a free name sign!)
I liked this worn, book-shaped little box just fine...
...and when I saw someone had this odd little clipping
saved inside of it, I liked it even better.
This journal--a ledger, actually--will soon hold record of all my thrifting finds.
I joked to my hubby that we'll throw a party once it's filled,
and I'll make him faint by revealing the grand total.
This cute oversized postcard reminded me of my kids.
I love this little house-shaped pot holder :)
A sweet photograph, birthday card, and invitation.
They weren't found together, but you'd think they were--
equally adorable. The card is from the 1930s.
Some super-bright and cute birthday cards.
Although this one seemed a little sad...
Is it just me, or does it seem to be aimed at soldiers overseas?
And hoping they remain safe?
Postcards that caught my eye.
Woolworth's in 1950's San Francisco.
Do you guys like reading about vintage icons and such too?
There was a really good book about Woolworth's that I read some time ago.
I love books that take a look back at what things were like.
A few Christmas cards and Valentines.
In the hallways at this sale, they had several old maps
stuck onto the wall with painter's tape.
They were ridiculously cheap...
I only wish they'd had them on a table,
because even using that tape they got a little ruined.
This map of New York is from the 30's.
This one is from the early 1940's.
My favorite find at this particular sale, though,
was a stack of old souvenir postcard books.
The art is so cute!!
These date from the 40's to the 50's.
I especially liked the Hollywood one.
Aren't these scenes from Niagra Falls
