Fresh Finds

This past Sunday we went to an estate sale in Kenosha. It was day three, and everything was half price. We knew that the house belonged to a serious collector/hoarder. We weren't quite sure what to expect. There was a pretty long line even with it being noon on the third day, so we had to wait for about an hour before we were able to go in. It was SO worth the wait. We spent two hours in the house and had to force ourselves to leave. In fact, Allie only made it through two of the rooms in the whole house!

The man who owned this house collected every vintage/antique known to man. There was so much stuff in the house, it was absolutely packed- we couldn't believe it... and again, day three of the sale!
We came back with 17 full bags, three pieces of furniture, piles of vintage dresses and clothes, and stacks of boxes, trays, canisters, and other things that just didn't fit in bags. Good thing we took the van! :)

A few snapshots of our piles and finds. I wish we could have taken more but we had to spent quite a bit of time cleaning and finding places for all our treasures.

  1. Wow --- I am so jealous! We don't have many estate sales where I live now. I so miss them. Great Finds!!!
