Mothers day at an Estate Sale

Do you remember the first time you fell in love with something vintage? I have a-lot of memories,but here are a few. I think the first memory I have is of an old cream purse with a clasp. I often wonder what happened to that purse. I must have been around 5 years old I am guessing. After that as a teenager I would buy 70's clothes. My favorite shirt was actually a polyester button down shirt with a really cool design. Unfortunately I let someone borrow it and I never saw that again . It must have been a hot item!
Well this mothers day when my husband asked what I wanted I didn't hesitate to say "Estate Sale"! It was a-lot of fun, the senior are always so cute and encouraging it makes me want to buy more :)

What is it about old used items that makes them so special?
I am going to be linking this week to. Treasure hunt Thursday


  1. You scored girl! I love the handbag and plates!

  2. that is my kind of mothers day! hope you had a great one. thanks for the comment on Lauren's party, it was a blast, glad she's still little, didn't have to invite the whole class!

  3. I told my husband not to get me anything that I would have an IOU and would spend it when I found something really special. Wish there was an estate sale coming up here!
    I love your framed prints.
    Thanks for coming to THT.
