Oh the Joy of Estate Sales

So I had the pleasure of hitting another estate sale today. There was a lot of stuff inside that was organized and had price tags on it. BORING! I was in the garage, driveway and basement where it was kind of a dive in approach. There were no price tags, it was cold and quite frankly, smelly.
The actually had to put a cover over my pile because once I pulled stuff out people were trying to shop out of my pile. Twice someone tried to walk off with my basket. And don't even get me started on the lady who started letting them know she would take the orchard ladder if I didn't. I had not even had a chance to negoiate yet! Bad estate sale etiquette!
I am sorry the pictures aren't better but the wind really started picking up so I decided to get my stuff and my tush inside. There is some neat small stuff and some shutters that you can't see very well. I thought I was so fancy figuring out Picasa the other day. Turns out, I'm not so fancy and I could only get a few pictures to load.

Here are a few of my favorites.

These chairs are amazing. They are actually leather with gold trim printed on the leather. Great carved details as well. Originally they had it marked that they wanted $100 for the four chairs. In the end, I walked away with all of this (with the exception of the ladder) for $100. Plus I got about 10 boxes of vintage ornaments.

This stool is metal with a wood top and probably my favorite find of the day.
At a certain point I think I was buying this orchard ladder whether I wanted it or not, just on principal. But in the end, I think it looks quite perfect in its new home.

Schedules for the weekend lead me to think that I will not be able to hit any more sales till next week. But I am sure I will find a way to sneak one in!

Happy Hunting!
