Estate Sale Junkie!

Well my family and I returned home from camping on Saturday.

We had a good time with family and just getting away from the normal routine.

Since we returned back to Portland around 2:30pm we were able to go to the tail end of a few sales.

This old metal box was one of my finds.

I'll try and release it from my fingers for the Fall Show.

I just love these old boxes.

I think the old aged tags that still remain are pretty sweet!

Another thing....books!

I think I have a fettish for books.

I'm not a book connoisseur but if they have the "right look" and they are old, I'll buy them!

That was the case this week-end.

I walked in the door and spotted these books right away!

A nice light grey cover.

There's about 27 of them.

circa 1920.

And look at those edges, I love edges like that!

The next few books I bought a couple of different places.

They are very tiny old books!

The smallest measuring 3".

All in browns and blacks.

Even though I wasn't able to hit the trail on Friday and early Saturday.

I did manage to pick up a few things and get my estate shopping fix!

Hope you did well in your shopping ventures!

Love the metal container and the old books. Love estate sales!

The sales around here weren't too good this weekend. I think it's just too hot.

I love old books too - i just cannot ever pass one up. I don't read them, i just look at them all old and tattered. Love it!

I love you cane seat chairs. I have 2 that are dark wood. I think I will take the spray paint to them and shabby them up a bit. Thanks for sharing!!!
