Friday's Estate Sale Finds

I get to enjoy summer Fridays from Memorial Day to Labor Day.  And even though today was a rainy mess, I ventured out to an estate sale not too far from my parent's house.  As luck would have it, it was held by a woman who is a mixed media artist and shabby chic collector.  I could hardly contain myself!
The two painted wood frames were $1 each.  I plan on painting the memory box/letter box white and hanging it in my craft room.  It was $5.  The wire basket was the most expensive at $15 but well worth it.
I'm a sucker for little baskets!
And I could not resist the boxes of pastel easter eggs for $1 each.
It's hard to tell what the above photo is but it's actually, two little vintage wire baskets and one tall one that holds a test tube sized vase.  Cute, cute, cute!  I'll be adding those to my Etsy shop after I jazz them up a little.  Not pictured is another great stack of sheet music.

There is another local estate sale here tomorrow and I can't wait!  Hoping it will be as fruitful as today's!

Wonderful finds! I have the same tiered basket. Anxious to see what you do with it. Mine is stored right now. Maybe you can give me an idea for using it.
