That is how I feel when I walk into an estate sale.
So many possibilities and hidden treasures. You really never know what you will see. Who you will meet or what you’ll stumble upon.
While the sales were limited today, (I only visited two rather quickly) I still managed to find several treasures (at least I think they are).
Five of Shakespeares many plays, on LP. Made in 1960. There were almost all of his works available, but I was not able to afford all of them. I selected my five favorites. Some I have read recently and was very excited to see still available.
Sidenote: I just began listening to the records and realized that one of the readers is Sir Ian McKellen. Score!!
Each had a script and included lovely pictures. Two dollars each. Can you believe it? I am excited to share these with Kensington when she gets older. I have dreams of listening to them with her, bowl of popcorn in hand, while we both work on the same quilt together. Possible??
I love Hemingway. My favorite of his works is A Farwell to Arms, but The Old Man and the Sea is fantastic. I found a “school edition” (read: for kids) for .50 cents. Again, for my child/future children. A treasure indeed.
Vintage Tupperware makes me happy and I found a house that MUST have been a dealer of some sort, as there was about 100 different types and colors. I wanted to go crazy and buy it all “just because”, but instead I thought logically (difficult at estate sales) and only got the things I will use on a daily basis. Two for the fridge, one for my sugar in the pantry, one for my rice and a small pitcher for lemonade in the fridge.
And lastly, a book from 1960’s, on entertaining. It has party recipes, drinks and ideas. It’s actually quite useful but the pictures are my favorite. A .50 cent pricetag made me snatch it up quickly.
I hope you all have a great weekend. I am really enjoying the change in weather (while it lasts). Gloom and wind makes me so happy. I have already lit the candles, cooked some succotash and turned on “fallish” DVD’s. “You Got Mail” is first. Until Miss K wakes up…and then it’s back to buidling a Lego farm, which I gotta say is pretty fun too. (Although Miss K decided the horse likes to live on TOP of the barn. Ok.)
