I've been saving this buy/brag post, but I don't know for what! This shopping trip was to a local estate sale. I probably wouldn't have gone except that it started on a Wednesday. Isn't that crazy! But I wasn't there to stand in line for numbers, that is just over the top now, don't ya think!
The sale was in a modest neighborhood and when I got there later in the morning it was pretty quiet. BUT a ton of stuff still in this house.
An entire china cabinet full of Waterford crystal. Beautiful, but still pricey.
I found a few linens to buy, then I spotted this China Barrel packing box in the corner full of Xmas items for sale for $10 for the entire box. I peeked inside and saw enough that intrigued me, and so I decided to go for it. It was a giant china barrel grab bag!!
I didn't even realize how heavy this box was until it was time to drag it to the car. The operative word here is DRAG!
But I am a resourceful gal so I managed to fit it into the trunk of the Prius just fine.
What was inside? Well, enough stuff to make the $10 worth it. I will use all this loot to make some vintage xmas wreaths for the local sale that BFF Beth and I are participating in on November 8.
Wow!! That looks so worth $10!! What a fabulous find…you can brag, this is worth bragging about. Can’t wait to see some of your creations with these goodies.
Have a great week, Kiss Noises Linda
Ohhh!! Looks like you got a great haul!! Well worth the bragging!
Wowser! You did get a haul…I would have been bragging about that too! Can’t wait to see your creations!
You manage to find the neatest stuff, Suzy Q! I just wonder how many vintage Xmas ornaments you’ve collected over the years…
Great post! Love it, box of Christmas!
Like finding buried treasure. Very well done…you make me proud :)Please post the wreaths before they go flying into other hands. We still have the blue and green one that you made hanging in the house. xxoo, Susan
Great stuff! Isn’t it fun to buy a box lot and find that there are some great treasures inside? I have a Prius, too. It’s amazing what I’ve been able to fit into that little trunk.
Wow! My heart started beating faster just seeing the sign!
Oh, you lucky, lucky girl! I get excited whenever I manage to find a few vintage Christmas things here and there! I can’t even imagine getting a huge box full like that. How wonderful!
Well done Suzy….we all know how you love your vintage decs! Well done to you!
Have fun with your craft projects,
Akkkk~I think that I am moving to that neighborhood Suzy! ~XO~ Janet
Wheeeeeeeee Now that’s fun! Wish I could go through that box!!! Bet you had fun!
