Estate Sale Therapy


It has been a terrifically long time since I was at a good estate sale, perhaps even a year! I just got back from an excellent sale, and I feel rejuvenated. There is nothing quite as wonderful as digging through boxes in a musty basement and striking ephemera gold. I also love the vintage Paris souvenir silk scarf, just $3.00 and the vintage dessert cups that we collect. On my way home from the estate sale I saw someone throwing away a beautiful vintage doll pram and a 1950's chalkboard with cute illustrations. Gleee!!!!
