Mile Stone Thursday!

Im So excited! 25 Followers, I think a Give away drawing is in order!

But First! Some Tuesday Afternoon finds! A Friend and I "Checked in" (Thanks Stan, haha I can stop saying that!) At the C.H.&R. for a Tuesday Wednesday visit. We happened to come across across an estate sale at the lake.... So we went a looking.

The first thing I spot, these 2 chrome chairs! Im pretty sure they come form the 1940's Actual retail price?! $5 for the pair.



I walk into what used to be a bedroom, And I see this gold trim and hairpin legs, apparently I was in such a state of shock I shoved a nun out of the way to get to it! haha Not really but I did make a mad dash over too it! I have always wanted a Boomerang table, and actually had plans to make one next year for the Den... heres the top!


and from the side, look at the gold chrome!LOVE IT! Actual retail price...(are you sitting down... you provably should...) $1.00!


I also Picked up Some 50's Tupperware tumblers that match some I have,a red and white enameled pot with matching lid, I found a metal frame that has a display light at the top. I think a picture of the last supper goes in it... I also snatched up this little Pyrex container... Actual retail price?! $2.00

When I was checking out the lady in charge raised her eyebrow at me with my pyrex plate, and she said "What are you gonna do with that" And I smiled and said "Life looks great through a Pyrex Plate!"

I spent a whole $8.00! That Coffee table is going to go in the Den. you guys have NO idea how happy it make me! haha

Now for the give Away.... I'll follow midCentury Madam, I'll put all the people who comment on this post in the drawing... I'll let it go for 2 or 3 days. The I will let my Non-biased sister will pick a name out of a cup!

A dollar for the table!??! Whoever was having the estate sale must have REALLY hated it!! I bet they thought that was the ugliest table ever made. HA! I would never be so lucky to find it at that price. $8, maybe. $1, never.

I am so jealous. That table is the bomb! And 25 followers? Not surprised. I really don't care if I win the postcards because I am going to see that place in person someday and take my own pictures. You win the prize for the greatest estate sale find. I'm going to find you a boomerang ashtray to go on top of that awesome boomerang table. Nice going Mick.

p.s. If a nun comes between me and a boomerang table...sorry Sister Mary. I had to do it.

Vintage Christine said...

I don't normally knock aside people for stuff but I do believe the Good Lord would excuse me for mowing down a nun to get at that table. Those are the kind of finds that keep me going to estate sales even though 99.9% of them are overpriced. Please enter me in your giveaway for those crazy cute postcards. You are too much, Mick! Now you have to start planning for the Grand Convergence of Blogger Pals for 2010 at Chez Casablanca!!!!!
