A great way to start the morning...

I hit an 50% off estate sale on my way to work Tuesday morning. I was literally in and out in less than 15 minutes.  My cell phone snapped a few shots of my stash. 

 A small box of vintage Christmas ornaments and handmade stockings were rescued.
Even more exciting was the box of strombecker dollhouse furniture that was waiting for me in the upstairs bedroom. 

 Here's a better shot of the furniture once I got home.

Yep.  Definitely better than a morning cup of coffee.  It was a great way to start my day.

I rarely see dollhouses or dollhouse funiture at sales...I saw one this last weekend and as I got closer realized it was plastic! And new! Not what I was looking for. You sure did hit the jackpot at this estate sale! I love the felted Christmas stockings!

I always enjoy your posts....but I need to stay away from those estate sales. Must not bring more stuff home...Ha!

So, so cute! Love the Christmas stuff, too! I'm going to an estate sale tomorrow with vintage toys, but I think it's more action figures, etc. But I hope there'll be something for me!

Perfect way to start the day! I would still want a cup of coffee to go along with this start..but this score would certainly give me a happy wake up call!

Oh Yeah!! An unplanned quick sale is the best way to start the day. That was some garage sale feng shui.
