Thrift Haul

Thrift Haul – Irresistible Estate Sale Goodness!

Thrift Estate Sale Vintage HaulVintage Estate Sale Haul ScoreThrift Score Estate Sale HaulThis weekend I had one of those rare estate sale experiences that all vintage geeks dream of – I hit a sale where everything I saw and wanted on the first day, but couldn’t grab, was still there on half off day. I mean EVERYTHING. It was crazy – I don’t know where all the other shoppers were, but I’m glad they stayed away!

I also hit a church sale on Saturday morning, and I was able to grab some fun stuff there too… I am SO happy that this weekend turned out so well, since last weekend was a big fat dud (I didn’t even do a haul post for last weekend!).

Let’s take a closer look at what I got, shall we? :)

But the price was so good, and the condition of it is so great, I just couldn’t leave it behind! I may end up listing it eventually, but for now I think it is going to find a home on my wall instead. :)

    Super Groovy haul! I have had those Sexton Metal Vino wall plaques a couple of times – they are so awesome – here’s a title I use you can pull from if it helps (VTG 1960s MID Century Modern SEXTON METAL BOTTLES Wall Art Retro Vino Italy MOD). This is a real Macrame summer for you and I love it! My favs are those groovy mushroom mugs and that retro photo album. Thanks for sharing!

      Hello there! Oddly enough, I just came across a matching painting to this one that was left in a dilapidated abandoned house in Ohio, and of course I rescued her! The one I have measures 38″ × 30″ without the frame.. Interesting huh?

    Hi from California! Just found your site today & love it. I’d love to do a few laps around the neighborhood with you the next time I’m visiting family in Cambridge – you and I “sound” like we have a very similar eye for stuff.

    Hi. I’m sure by now this is an Old Post. When I was a little girl, a copy of this very painting hung in my house the whole time I was growing up. I do not exaggerate when I tell you that I stared at that painting for countless hours and daydreamed all kinds of theories and scenarios about her and that gentlemen. I’ve been trying to find the name of the artist but I can’t make it out. To me, it’s illegible. When my Mother passed away she had already sold this painting in a yard sale. If you happen to know the artist would you please share that with me so I can find a copy?
    Thank you.
    I have a picture of me as a very small child standing in front of this picture. I wish I could copy and paste it onto this so you could see it. It really is a magical picture
