Connie and I headed out early on Saturday morning. Our own houses needed to be cleaned, laundry piled by the washing machine, threatening to come down the hallway. And enough dirty dishes in the sink, that somehow never made it to the EMPTY dishwasher. But ten estate sales from here to the Main Line of Philly were calling us. We could here the whisper in the wind. Donnnnna, Connnnnie, come see the finds that are waiting for youuuuuuuuuuuuuu.
Ok, Enough drama, we had a great day. Not as good as some in the past but better then we expected. It was down right cold to. I found a box of cast iron keys. Still had the price tags hanging from them. No clue what I am going to do with 20 of them. But one never knows what project might require them. The lady said she was going to make a border around her kitchen with them. But, never got around to it.
At one sale I found a little wall table, I had to refinish the top, but it is cute. The owner of that home is in jail and the girlfriend was selling everything. And just about giving it all away.
On the way home we stopped by Salvation Army and I picked up a wonderful art deco mirror in really nice condition. I decided that I am going to keep that, and hung it in the powder room. I have a collection of old mirror frames that hang in there. So it was right at home. At the thrift store I also found a toy chest for my dental office, I am now painting it black.
And the finished toy chest. Came out great. Although Walmart must think I inhale spray paint, because I am always in there buying it. But you can't beat .88 $ a can, and I am always spray painting something.
