That infamous Tuesday estate sale...

I had hinted last week that my husband and girls attended a very special estate sale last Tuesday. 
 Here's a picture of the haul they came home with.
This vintage toy truck will be filled with seasonal hauls.  The Christmas light box will be used for display.
Another doll dresser to add to my growing collection.
Isn't the straw bunny purse cute?
Love these mini appliances. The refrigerator is staying in the kitchen.  The sink will hang on the wall in my craft room. 
The refrigerator is now being used to store coffee/sugar and cute pics.
Loads of golden books and a stack of Jack and Jill magazines.
Last might not least, handmade glittered Santa candle holders.
Chris said he couldn't leave them behind.  They are rather "glitzy".
Mr. Chris is now back working in his schools.  I already miss not having my own personal estate sale shopper.
