Here's what I did bring home . . .
some brass accessories for the booth (or possibly Etsy - just another option I'm considering). These were from the same sale as this sofa . . .
which was in really good shape, actually. It was still there on the second day (which is when I went), so it was half price. Not a bad deal, and I'm still considering it for my basement (if I ever get around to renovating it into the space of my dreams). It might still be available. Hmm.
I also picked up these lovelies at TJ Maxx (it was around the corner from one of the estate sales, how could I resist?) . . .
|The cutest beach bag . . .|
|and this hat and metallic linen espadrille wedges. Can you guess where I'm going soon? I just started reading the book on Thursday and love it!|
Regarding the other items I saw at the estate sales, here are some updates:
This desk . . .
Thomas Frist. For those of you not from Nashville/Tennessee, the Frists are, ahem, extremely wealthy. So, I think the desk was a little out of my tax bracket.
The next four items were actually part of an auction, not a traditional estate sale, and unfortunately, I had my daughter with me and my mother and son waiting at home for us, so we couldn't really sit through a 3+ hour auction. Bummer. One day, I would love to hit an auction and bid . . . ah, the thrill and emotion (I could conceivably get carried away though).
|The marble top was not as pretty in person, but the drawers were beautiful. Overall, it was stunning, though.|
|Couldn't even find this, and the auction people were assisting others. Oh well.|
|This was up on a high shelf so I couldn't even get a good look or sit on it.|
|And this vase was tiny in person. So disappointing!|
The other items were from a sale I couldn't make it to. So, not a total bust, but nothing earth-shattering. Oh well. I still love the thrill of the hunt. Have you found any great treasures lately?
