An estate sale made just for ME!

Tuesday morning, Chris alerted me to an estate sale that was only minutes away.  I think Mr. Scarecrow is happy to have a new home. 
I'm happy to report there was a small stash of Halloween decorations waiting for me when I arrived after work.
Not sure where this door-sized poster will appear in our house, but it got the stamp of approval from Josie and Chris.
Hand-made ornaments made from Styrofoam, paper napkins, and glitter now hang on my Halloween tree.
A bunch of goodies, but the hat and paper bag caught my eye.
If I had a stash of these of trick or treat bags, I would pass them out at our Halloween party.
For now, the hat and paper bag found a new home on top of my piano.
One of my favorite finds was the pumpkin candy holder with the princess crown.

It was a happy day in estate sale land!  Halloween hugs!

I found several princess pumpkins a few years ago in a bag at Savers. I was thrilled to find a picture of it in my Halloween collectibles book. The hard plastic candy holders are becoming more valuable.
