Picker's sale...

I had hinted on my last post that Chris recently attended a picker's estate sale.
It was advertised as a sale in which gloves and flashlights were necessary.  Imagine 20 acres of outbuildings, rusty cars swallowed up by nature and random piles of items just rotting away. 
 In addition to this chaos, there was a house and scary basement packed with collections.  These were the items that came home with him.  
Halloween 
A few more pinecone serving pieces and a set of deer salt/pepper shakers for my growing collection.
A blowmold deer planter which is now happily living at the lake.
A darling squirrel planter which is also living at the lake.
Some vintage Christmas, including these flocked reindeer.
And a few more turkey planters to add to my thanksgiving decorations.
This dirty/dusty sale went down as one of Chris's favorite picks of all time.  I think he's ready to hang with Frank and Mike from American Picker's.  Have a great week, friends.  May you find a few treasures too.

It sure was a great place to find holiday treasures. He's GOOD! He would love 'picking' here in Florida! Enjoy your week. Hugs, Diane

I have yet to hit a really down and dirty picker sale. They look like so much fun! Loving that parade float sign.

Have a great week!

My kind of sale and I would have loved to have picked it too. As long as I am dressed and prepared appropriately...no heals and white pants for this kind of digging.

Great "finds!"
Looks like Chris had to do some pickin' to find all those goodies!
Love the buried car . . .

What a great group of finds! I don't know if I'd be brave enough to go to a sale like that! Love those flocked deer and the deer planter. And the Lego camper from the last post- it looks just like the camper my grandparents had when I was a kid! Hope you're having a great summer so far!

Your husband is brave, I would have been scared off by the description of the sale. Looks like he found some great stuff.
