Estate Sale Loot

by - March 01, 2012

We hit an estate sale this morning.  The weather was dreary and the wait was long, but I did manage to score some great vintage finds:

I think I'm definitely going to paint this little fan pink.
I could not resist these opera glasses with case.  I just love them!  Same for the vintage lace gloves.  Love!
I also got this cute little bench for $10.  Funny thing is, I have a similar one I'm using to display some vintage toys in an alcove at the top of our stairs.
My husband picked out the tins which are probably from the 1960s or 1970s.
I kind of like the green.

We spent about $40 on everything!  Not bad for a Thursday!
