DIGGERS SALE......to the NTH DEGREE!

What a fun and interesting sale..Oh my gosh..........they advertised as diggers sale to the Nth degree..........they weren't kidding! First of all.....not sure if the winter has gotten so long here in MN or what but people were SO pushy and rude today. It was literally wall to wall people right next to each other the whole time. I love to watch people at estate sales.... First thing I got was this awesome old photo album.....I saw it on their website and thought for sure it would be gone by the time we got there and too expensive......there it was on the first table.......6.00! SCORE!
Next I spied this vintage crepe paper....... 3..00 for all! SCORE!

OH MY GOSH!! A WHOLE bucket full of vintage wallpaper.....I thought .......this is going to be expensive.......I couldn't believe it when I saw the price on the 5 gal bucket........8.00 all! SCORE!

Close up of some of the wallpaper!



I am just loving vintage silver lately and it is catching on and the shops have it quite expensive lately.........not this lot.......1.00 each! SCORE!




Fun vintage dotted swiss flowers with vintage rhinestone centers........2 for 1.00! SCORE!



And the last 2 things....the first is the most fun vintage fly swatter I have seen.....what love went into making an aweful task pretty.....50 cents......and the HUGE roll of pink paper underneath it..1.00! SCORE!

I am such a yard sale junkie - do you know how it hurts to see wonderful finds like this and I wasn't able to be at the sale to snatch them from under your nose? LOL! I have got the urge now, and I'm going to an estate sale early in the a.m. Hope I can find some wonderful things like these!

Hayley said...

Hi Denise! I'm so honored you follow my dinky little blog! I love yours and all your beautiful finds. I shop a lot but I have yet to try an estate sale. I don't know what's holding me back. I guess maybe I feel like you have to be an official dealer or something to have the privilege...Anyway, you certainly scored and I look forward to following your blog, too.

Lucky, lucky, lucky!

You Lucky Girl!!
AWESOME finds!

Diane Mc said...

Hi Denise! I find that there are more people attending estate sales, and the line ups are horendous!!! More people are watching their money, so it isn't just antique 'pickers' like me who attend. People are decorating their homes more with vintage.
Congrats on your finds! :O)

Little Pink Studio said...

Barb said...

Great finds!!!

How old does something have to be to consider it vintage??

I have leftovers of the wallpaper in my daughter's room (she is 34 now), and in my bedroom.
(I know, if it is that old it needs to be redone.) =0)
I'd love to, just spend all my time redoing the store right now.

blessings, and Happy Easter,
Barbara Jean
