Good Estate Sale

I hit a good estate sale last week. The house was small but jammed packed. This is the most I have bought at one sale in a long time. From the far left, around clockwise: two small, made in Brazil, spice canisters. A cute and mod cat ornament made in Hong Kong. A 1949 dress pattern; this is the oldest pattern I've ever found. A very cute children's book. A complete U.S. map puzzle with a copyright of 1915. Two Xmas aprons and a cute, musical themed hanky.

A very hard to find Nuway spice rack from the 30s (I think). A Little Golden Book dictionary. 1970s laundry hooks-- those are really handy. Four, believe it or not, boxes of flash cards, and an old, unused ledger book.

A few school workbooks, unused from the 60s, and two very old magazines. The Woman's Day is from 1940 and the BH & G is from 1952. Can you see the price on the Woman's Day? Two cents!!

Let's look inside those magazines...

Times sure have changed, haven't they? Thanks for reading... See ya!

    1. Yes, that was a really good sale. Doesn't happen near me too often. Thanks for viewing!

  4. Great haul! I'm totally jelly of the old dress pattern.

  5. I MISS you! I hope you are just out there having some fun! Love your goodies. Hope to hear from you soon. Hugs, Diane

  6. Cool stuff!
    this is the second vintage metal spice wall hanger I've seen this evening. They aren't identical...but, I was surprised at the metal fixtures.
    Also... I love seeing old magazines and all the ads on the insides.
    One more thing... the unused ledger is cool and so are the phonics cards! 'wh' wheel... is accurate and I'm not sure that it's taught phonetically now days!
    glad to see you post... ;)
