A few weeks ago I went to an estate sale with my friend Cassie and came home with my arms full of goodies. It was the third and final day of the sale so everything was half off. It was also my first estate sale. It took me a minute to get past the eeriness of it, but I eventually decided that I would be flatterred if a bunch of people wanted to come and ooh and ah and haggle over all my possessions after I’m gone, so I hope this lady is flattered somewhere too.
The swirled detail on these large plates really floats my boat.
I also got a silver covered serving dish. Old silver dishes and platters are one of my favorite things to collect. And I’m sure I’ll find a place for this little pumpkin when fall rolls back around.
All together I got:
- 6 small plates
- 6 medium plates
- 2 large plates
- 4 ramekins/custard dishes (2 with a pretty textured design and 2 made of oven-safe pyrex)
- a sillver covered serving dish
- a pumpkin candy dish
- a glass cylinder vase
- a big strand of costume pearls
All for a grand total of, wait for it, $27!
Later that same day (!) I went to Ann Taylor Loft, where all their sale items were half off, and got this dress for about $20 (originally $80-something). I think it goes nicely with my $3 strand of fake pearls.
