One Week Until Christmas

We are still a little behind on the blog but just a little. This post is for the week ending December 20, 2015. We are almost caught up! 

Another three day weekend and another chance for an extra day of saling but...there were no worthwhile sales on Friday. So, we ran some errands, did some chores and found some time to relax together. It was a nice day and it allowed us to free up our Saturday to attack the few sales that there were. There were only two sales of interest but they were in the same general area which was nice. We didn't expect too much but were hopeful, as always. Saturday morning arrived and off we went!

The first sale was run by an estate sale company that we know and was described as a "picker's delight" and "a vintage estate sale". We were hoping for the best.

There were lots of rooms but it was the basement that turned out to be the most interesting. It was there that we found the Christmas stuff. There wasn't a lot of vintage Christmas amongst this stuff but we did find a few things. We also took home some records and vintage Tupperware salt and pepper shakers.

After a stop for breakfast, we made our way to the second sale. It was a sale of "vintage and antique" items. There was an old blow mold snowman on the lawn but it was not for sale. The sale was run by the family of an elderly woman who moved to Florida.

In the basement, we found this vintage dehumidifier built into this wall unit which was pretty cool. 

We also found this old escape ladder in its box. The graphics on the box were great. It did not come home with us but some old cookbooks did. 

On the way home, we stopped in at this thrift shop which we have not visited in a few years. We came away with several records.

Here are the items we came home with that Saturday:

Some Hawaiian records

A record with songs by The Beatles performed by 101 Strings

Some Christmas records

Some old cookbooks

Vintage Tupperware salt and pepper shakers

Some Christmas things...all marked Japan

We realized that this would probably be our last saling adventure of 2015. It is not likely that there will be any sales the weekend of Christmas. It's okay. There are so many things to do to prepare for Christmas and, together, we know we will be ready to celebrate a beautiful Christmas.
