My Vintage Finds at Estate Sales This Weekend!

On Thursday, I was able to swing by 3 estate sales in Dallas.  All three were super fun.  Lots of old and interesting stuff.  I actually saw a "Merlin", the Electronic Wizard, from the late 70s/early 80s.  I had one as a kid and thought it was such a high tech device.  Believe me, it was hard to walk away from Merlin, but I did.  But I so enjoyed just picking it up, and remembering the good old days...
Merlin, The Electronic Wizard
The things I couldn't walk away from:
ornate metal vintage canister
This ornate container- container intended for what, I'm not sure.  Cottonballs?  Make-up Brushes?  I'm not sure yet what I'll use it for, but trust me when I tell you, I'll figure something out.  I just love it.  And I got it for only $4!!!!

My next $4 item...
wood carved tray
This pretty wood carved tray.  It matches a mirror I have in my bathroom, and I think this tray will fit perfectly on the back of my toilet.  What a steal at $4, right?!

The vintage jewelry I came home with will be gorgeous once I sparkle it up a bit.
vintage trinkets
I'm most in love with the sweater clip (bottom right), which I probably paid a little too much for.  However, I got a few of the other items for a great deal, so it all balanced out and I left that estate sale very, very happy.  By the way, the top earrings are clip earrings with clips I have never seen before.  Way, way too heavy for me to consider wearing, but still cool, nonetheless.  I already have an idea of how I might repurposed them.

All in all, great finds this week!

wow you got some good stuff last weekend! I was out on Saturday. Came home with a chair and a drawing. Neither as good when I got home as when I saw them. Can be the way sometimes. But I still had fun!!
