A $2 box of happiness...

While running errands last Saturday in preparation for Easter, there happened to be an estate sale advertised within a few miles of our house. It was day 2 of the sale and everything was 50% off.   The dolls are in great condition, but they need some Kim K. clothes.  
Lucky for me, a few holiday goodies were still sitting in the basement.
That black cat with the orange striped scarf is a big winner.
The floral picks will be put on my Halloween tree.
 
The felt handmade stocking will become part of my Christmas stocking valance.
 
A $2 box of happiness! Yippee for the return of estate sale season!

Fun box and love the dolls. I bought about 5 from an estate sale in mint condition and with clothes. They sold very well on EBay. I don't remember what I got from them but I remember thinking that I did well.

Yay! It's been a long winter, hasn't it? I found a great old mirror at an elderly neighbor's estate sale...though I felt sad to be poking about in her things while she has to live in a retirement home. We just don't get many estate sales around here.

Hi Kim,
After your kind visit I headed right over here to check out your blog. It was fun scrolling through all of your vintage finds! I also love to shop for vintage treasures. Your post about your sweet adopted daughter was very heartwarming. You have a lovely family!
