So, I went for a run/walk yesterday. A community near me was having a yard sale and a great old estate near me was having a barn sale...all in one day! The estate was full of incredible furniture, mirrors, really cool things like an antique book press and massive mirrors, but I would need another house to store them all, so I settled for small items. So many bargains...three hours later, I had to run back to get the car. Here's what I purchased:
Very heavy, and very old candlestick (I'm going to paint it because even though it's kind of cool as is, there are some chunks missing).
Two file card drawers...love. They don't have solid bottoms...what would you do with them? Any ideas?
Beautifully detailed and very heavy lamp and choice of two lamp shades (Umm, $5 for all three):
Cool middle Eastern heavy brass cup:
Beautiful vintage linens:
And my favorite piece: a small old dresser swing mirror. I have no use for it, but want to paint it and put it in my shop....what color? Pale pink? off white? pure white? Any ideas?
Also, found some very cool vintage jewelry and an old brass pot. Some of which I will definitely keep and some are going into my shop. Some one pinch me please; I must be dreaming.
