Two Saturdays ago, we did this... thus, there was no time to hit up the Saturday garage sales (climbing the mountain was more fun anyway!). However, Craigslist had a listing for an estate sale that was going on Saturday AND Sunday! You know where I was heading after church :)
Much to my surprise, everything was 50% off... maybe that's a common occurance at estate sales, but this was my first true estate sale - walking around someone's home where EVERYTHING has a price tag on it...
I also snatched up a double candlestick up in the kitchen. I loved etched glassware so I couldn't pass up on something like this for only $2. I have a similar candlestick in the Fostoria Chintz pattern, but I didn't recognize the shape or the etched pattern. Therefore, I offer up a big thank you to the internet for helping me find this pattern :)
This was not a sale find, but it did come in the mail the same weekend... My mother-in-law is too sweet! She sent me this kit and the instructions to make a tool keeper to help me keep my sewing tools contained when I'm out sewing on the kitchen table. It will also be great for when I take my sewing things next door to sew with Neighbor. Thank you again!! I can't wait to have time to sew it up :)
