The past few weeks have been terribly difficult with family health issues.
I had not been to any sales, antique malls, or thrift shops in many weeks. But, life must continue and with that, it felt so good to go to a couple local estate sales this weekend and it felt especially good to have found these amazing items. When I am on the “hunt” I don’t think about anything but my task at hand and it was much needed this time to be able to clear my mind.
At one sale I came across a collection that belonged to an elderly man who had been collecting for the past 40 years and he had some of the most fantastic items I had ever seen. The sale was really marketed and so many people were there that I felt so privileged to have been able to acquire a couple of his items. The estate sale worked a little different than sales I had gone to in the past in that a lot of the collections were auctioned off right then and there.
The last couple sales each had vintage Christmas goodies and I just can’t pass that up. I found some vintage Holt Howard Christmas items, vintage Napco and vintage Lefton Christmas candy cane kids and salt and pepper shakers, vintage Napco Christmas girl planter and a gorgeous vintage Christmas tablecloth. I just love vintage Christmas items and the feeling of nostalgia and yester-year they evoke.
