Last Friday I followed a sign to an estate/garage sale. When I walked through the door the lady running the sale asked me if I collected Christmas or crafted. I was torn but Christmas won out in the end first. I did still manage to find a lot of crafting stuff too but I missed out on some great wood beads (many of them hand painted). A lady and her little girl bought the whole box. The little girl was so cute and she kept telling everyone she was going to make "necklashes". I love to see the next generation at thrifts and sales.
This sale was run by a woman in her 60s who was selling her still living 90 year old mother's stuff. I always like hearing the story of the person behind the items. I must say this lady was my type of woman. Great mini ornaments, metal reflectors, and a boxed bottle brush tree. The jingle bells made my day. Cards and cards of them. I still have bags to go through before I store them away.
The globes on top were not part of this sale. My mom let me go browsing in her house and I got quite a few things. Including this fabulous Pyrex Daisy divided casserole. My mom has the best eye and she's always looking out for great stuff for me and my sisters.
