For the first time ever, I actually signed up on a list for an estate sale! I don't generally get to do this because most sales are far, far away from my house. It's bad enough to drive over for the sale, but to drive over and back again the day before to sign up on the list is just not going to happen. And with little kids, I can't get there early to sign up on the day of the sale either, so I just have to be content not to worry about being one of the first in the house.
For this particular sale I got lucky--it was only about 10 minutes from my house, so it was no problem to pop Porter into the car and run over. I ended up being #19 on the list which doesn't seem that great, but I was the first one into the room with the vintage Christmas goodies (my goal!) and I was able to get everything I wanted, so it was a success!
I LOVE this lid! I only have one other one like it but it's my favorite because of the image of Uncle Sam and Santa Claus shaking hands.
There were other vintage Christmas goodies as well. I found two bells made of wire and PINK mercury glass beads, and two boxes of reflectors.
And a whole pile of the random little vintage Christmas bits that make me disproportionately happy. Especially when they come packaged in a darling little vintage shoebox like this:
I think I might have to try my hand at making some vintage-style Christmas corsages with all of the little bits I've been collecting.
Did you find any good junk this weekend? I'm linking up with Apron Thrift Girl's Thrift Share Monday!
