They always say...one man's trash is another man's treasure. Today I found a sweet older women named June's treasure. There was a lovely estate sale in an older part of town that I just knew was going to be wonderful. June was a keeper of all things vintage. The house was loaded from room to room, basement to garage and every crevice in between. These are a few of my trashy treasures.
Trash cans that make me squeal. Claire picked the black one and I picked the cream one.
Asian inspired goodies. Kokeski pencil set. Look at that sweet eraser!
Vintage Christmas...corsages, ribbon spools, sheet music, six 1944 Christmas seals, a few feather tree ornaments, un-used candy box, and some plastic adornments.
Cute stationary. Dainty Doily. Four unused pillow cases. Nut cups and an Ohio art recipe box. Original box of Fuller toothbrushes new in the box. Water lilies box and silhouette tally cards.
Nothing prepared me for the cute cards I found all over June's house. Look at this set. There are multiples of each. All are sized at the 3x5. Inside are some cute little graphics.
All of these cute cards were in the lily box still in their cellophane bag. No yellowing! No marks! Simply beautiful.
I could have stayed all day and not looked at every thing. There was just so much. It has been so long since I hit an estate sale I could have stayed all day...but I had a voice calling me..."Mom, look at this!"
I have to mention my super helper Claire (daughter) who helped me stage and take photos today. Her extra eyes and hands were fabulous to have today!
Oh, but there is more...they haven't even opened up the upstairs. What's upstairs? All of June's mothers stuff. I will be back next week to check all of that out. In the mean time I am going to be imagining what Miss June's mothers name was...
