latest vintage finds

Estate & garage sales have a way of pulling you in.  
The possibility that you just might find something fabulous for a steal  is so alluring!

Here are a few of my latest vintage finds.
First, this little family of ducks is lacquered bronze.  
I love that there are two parents and two kids--just like us!
Price? $1

This is my favorite. I love the round hinges on the side, the cut-out details, and the claw feet!
I'm guessing this will land in our master bedroom, but we'll see.
Price? $3

On a whim I decided to follow some signs to an estate sale.
I couldn't resist this lamp with a milk glass shade.  A scalloped edge gets me every time.
This sweet lamp is going to live in our guest room.
Price? $15

Have you had any luck at the summer sales in your city?

This week has been crazy busy with the electrician here every day.  Once he is done it's the painters turn and I won't have to look at the living room color any longer!  It's a great color on its own, just not for us.
I hope you're getting ready for your long weekend. 
Who's hitting the garage sales with me?! ;-)

  2. Love all of your finds! I've been holding myself back because we are moving in 4 weeks and I don't really want to buy anything we don't need at the moment. Once we are moved though, I will be a craigslist, garage/estate sale fool! We are moving to a bigger city and I can't wait!

  5. That brass tray is so gorgeous and a major score at only 3 buckaroos! I *love* finding deals on awesome stuff...I actually just found some of the hydrangea covered eggs from pottery barn, originally $6 a pop, for .57. Yep. I bought all of them. (c:

  10. Love all three of your finds! I've already started scoping Craig's List to find the garage sales in our area. Do you have any suggestions of how to scope out the estate sales vs garage sales? Sometimes on Craig's List they specifically say estate sale, but other than that I have no idea how to differentiate or find the good estate sales. I'm also craving to hit up an auction too.

  11. Yup I am a complete addict. Sadly this weekend I won't be going to any as I'll be down the shore. I know, I know it's a tough life. looking forward to beach time, but a part of me would rather be thrifting :)

    great finds!
