Part Two: Estate Sale::

 vintage embroidery hoops in several sizes

crochet How - To books from: 1940- 1950

 wooden spools

 I love this old wooden box. Can you quess what's inside?

plenty of whites!
tins,  filled with colored threads and buttons
                        Last but not least...... the free shabby chair. It just needs some TLC.
                So, what do you think? I had my hesitations in the first place. One being the weather and two being an hour away. It was somewhat risky. All in all, it was super fun! What about that Organizer? I wouldn't want that job. Or would I ?
                              Have a great week :)

       PS. for those of you who asked. I didn't purchase any clothing or jewelery. The Antique Appraiser has to do his job now. I'll keep you posted more about this sale.
      .... To be continued ;)

That's my kind of sale. Here there are so few estate sales and every collector and antique dealer in town goes it's hard to get anything great.

I love the old vintage clothing and wooden thread spools.

and I would have taken anything free

Buttons, buttons and more buttons. And the tins of sewing stuff are neat. The chair? Not sure of the era, but the needlepoint is very pretty.
