Never underestimate the value of going to estate sales.
They are usually offered after a person dies.
A friend and I went to a "doozy" of an estate sale most recently and came away with truly a wonderful stash.
Regular followers of this blog already know how much I love dollhouse miniatures.
Well, there at the sale, there were zip lock bags of dollhouse accessories. (A dollhouse had already been sold.)
Most of the baggies were marked $30 and $25. However, we were there almost at the tail end of the sale.
My friend offered to pay a total of $20 for two bags and it was accepted.
Then, she gave them to me for babysitting services! Yippah!
There were also fireplace implements, a brass fireplace screen, a brass log carrier, and yes, logs!
There's a grandfather clock with brass pendulum, too, and numerous toys for a children's room.
Oh my, a rug for that room still had a price tag on the back.
Here it is:
Hope you enjoy this peek preview of just some of the new found items in those little baggies.
There's even a tiny furnished dollhouse to put inside the dollhouse!
I couldn't wait to share these treasures with you!
