Estate sale finds from last week...

I managed to find one estate sale on the way home from work last Thursday and Chris hit another one on Friday.  These Chinese checker boards will eventually be added to my growing collection in my craft room.  
Most of the treasures we've been bringing home from estate sales lately are designated for the a-frame cottage.  Last week, I did manage to find a few things meant for future holiday crafting projects.

The graphics on the unused wrapping paper are pretty fun, especially when I paid .25 cents for the entire box!

Don't you love the little girl image on the pink wooden hanger?

I also grabbed the box of linens and Effanbee doll for $5.

One of the reasons I wanted the box of linens was for the deer embroidery piece.  It's now covering the top of our dresser in our master bedroom at the cottage.

One of my favorite finds, is this 1968 light-up lake scene picture frame. Chris got it for .50 cents and we found out it was manufactured in our local town of Grand Rapids, MI.

We'll be finding a special spot in the lower-level of the a-frame for it.   Totally tacky, but I love it so! I hope you are finding a few treasures of your own this week.

XOXO

I love seeing your estate finds. The deer dresser scarf and the picture are perfect! I am amazed at the things you find at the sales you attend . . .

The hanger, with the little girl reminded me of Josie . . .

Hi Kim,
That little hanger is cute and I always love to find linens too. Those vintage game boards are neat too and will look great hung on the wall with the others. Great finds!
