Chris surprised me after work with this box of putz houses. He had visited an estate sale on his way home. Yes. I realize I'm very spoiled.
Friday night, I had gone to bed before Chris and was nearly asleep when he came in the room and said that estatesales.net was advertising a sale 50% off on Saturday. The pictures online showed that the house had a vintage Christmas room.
Do you think I slept much that night? I had vintage Christmas swirling around in my brain!!!
As soon as Emma was dropped off at the high school bright and early Saturday morning for Varsity Marching Band practice, we drove across town and ran to the basement of the estate sale (with Josie in tow). Pretty much everything was still there. However, the lines were so crazy to check out, that Chris and I never even saw what was in the rest of the house. You ready for lots of pics? This was an estate sale that will go down in my records books as one of the best sales EVER!
I've been wanting a wooden Christmas tree putz village folding fence for years but they've never been in my price range. Yippee for me!
I was so excited about this reindeer/sleigh display, that I took a picture of it with my cell phone to send to my Mom and sister while Chris was driving us back home.
I grabbed literally every Santa plastic candy container that was left on the table.
One can never have too many bells! I've not seen these plastic style red/green bell ornaments before.
Plastic snowflakes...they couldn't be left behind either!
A church/choir boy Gurley candle to add to my candle collection.
Angels ornaments with sweet sleepy faces.
A plastic star tree topper.
A spun-head angel and tiny yarn Santa.
Red honeycomb bells
A few other things that happened to be near the Christmas room included an Easter chick cardboard cutout and this cloth doll.
I also picked up this button pictures art kit. The graphics are so sweet.
I've already promised my sister and Mom that I would share my stash with them.
This was an estate sale worthy of Magpie Ethel. Merry Christmas to me!
