Fabulous Finds ... See what great stuff I bought.

Wednesday is my day to go Thrifting at the 
25¢ Sale at Find's Thrift Store ....

 unfortunately none of these items came from that sale, 
but I did get some good buys ... 

 well, maybe this did.
I got this board there for $2.00.

I plan to make a sign with it ...
maybe fresh fruit, vegetables and flowers ...

or it could be a back to a small garden bench.

Break for a special announcement ...

Lavender Garden Cottage  I am so honored to have Deb at Lavender Garden Cottage feature this post.  Be sure to go visit her Link Party each week ... lots of talent and inspirations there.

now back to what I have found ... 

This 4' x 7' piece beaded board came from ReStore Habitat for Humanity Thrift. $5.00

This will come in handy when building furniture or as Angie at Knick of Times suggested ... a backdrop for photos. Yes, I have used it for that and it is GOOD.

Then there was this Estate Sale of a lady who had a space in and Antique Store ...

she was also a hoarder collector ...

her three bedroom house, plus a screened-in porch was so full you could not walk through it ...

also the garage ....

and ...

three storage units ... 

she had great stuff ... old stuff ... and cheap ...

This is part of what I bought the first week ... 

well, and maybe a few more things. 

     Nice, very old Newel posts that just need some TLC ...  $6.00


I went there to buy Antique stoneware ...and I did ... 

 Isn't this set just beautiful ?

 This pitcher is about eight inches tall ...

This beauty is big and about twelve inches tall ...

 ... decorated all over and inside too ...

It took the Estate Sales people four week-ends of sales 
to even half-way liquidate this estate. 


Happy to add this square bowl to two others I have like this.

The fourth week, they were finally able to get into the kitchen to sell what was in the dining room and kitchen. 

Inlaid doors ... 

what can I do with these ??? 

... just hang them on the wall ?

... make a cabinet for them ? 

Hope you enjoyed seeing my fabulous finds.

Thanks for visiting ...

  1. Wow! I love all the stoneware finds and that bead board too! You did great!

    Jennifer @ Decorated Chaos

  2. Looks like you have had loads of fun. I vote to make a cabinet for those doors. Do you have a large house? It is fun to go shopping but then I don't have much space to display my finds! Nice dishes! Your sign when finished will look especially nice! Nancy

  3. That larger pitcher looks like it may have once been a part of a commode?!! You found some great things indeed.

  4. Oh my goodness! Fabulous indeed! I love the china pieces you found. Heck, I would be thrilled to find just one of these. But the red tray and pitcher are so wonderful. What an amazing sale! (I'm so glad you plan to make a paper wreath too!)

  5. I love all your pitchers Audrey! You scored:)

  6. Wow, you found some wonderful things, Audrey. I really like all of the pitchers.

    Thank you so much for following my blog. I am now following back!

  7. So many beautiful treasures! I love the pink china so much! Thanks for sharing at TTF!

  8. Wow - you found some wonderful treasures, Audrey! I'm loving the pitchers and creamer set and I would have snatched up that beadboard too - I'd use it as a photo backdrop.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  9. This is the estate sale everyone dreams of finding. I love everything but especially the pitchers and the newel posts. Those doors are gorgeous.

  10. Audrey,
    O MY!! What fabulous finds!! Love all of them but that pitcher is a show stopper for sure! Thanks so much for your visit!!


  11. What fantastic finds! So many beautiful pieces, what will you do with them all? I'd use those lovely doors as shutters for a window (If you have one that size) You have such great luck finding wonderful things.


  12. did GOOOD, girlfriend....! Like Anne...what will you do with all of this..?
    Everything is just lovely....

  13. Hi Audrey, wow, that sale sounds like a picker's dream. You found some gorgeous stoneware and those inlaid doors are really beautiful. Yeah, I'd hang them on the wall, but if you have the skills to build something around them, you could really do something great with them. Thanks for sharing this at the We Call It Olde Link-Up. Another party starts Tue & goes through Sat. -Dawn @ We Call It

  14. Hi lovely lady.
    Wow. So many beautiful pieces you have found love the pitcher sweet. I am new on your lovely blog now and also following you, hoping you can come see my Tablescape for Veterans Day and join me. I am hoping you have a wonderful week with your family God Bless.


  15. Hi lovely lady.
    Thanks so much for your sweet comments and following me back. I will be doing a Tablescape for Thanksgiving next Sunday.
    God Bless.

  16. All I can say is OMG!!! You did so hit the mother lode! Love all that gorgeous stoneware.
    Lucky you!

  17. Wow! you got some great stuff.
    I can't imagine the job those people had. My mom was a hoarder and what she didn't collect herself...she hoarded from her moms house.
    Oh my goodness... I AM ONE! I've done that same thing. Brought stuff from my moms and MY MIL homes...
    Ok...well, I need to start getting ready to have a sale or something.
    We have warmed up here...but still breezy and overcast... I'm loving it.
    take care, nice chatting with you. Pat

  18. such great finds, audrey! beautiful inlaid doors, and i love the transferware! enjoy your sunday!

  19. what a great estate sale!!! And love your stoneware pieces. I think the inlaid doors would be so pretty on a white painted piece......(just thinking). Happy Tuesday Audrey.

  20. Hi lovely lady.

  21. Hi Audrey!

    So glad that you found our blog. Hope you enjoy it! I am looking forward to catching up with yours too :-)

    All of that stoneware is gorgeous. I always admire it whenever I see it but only have one pitcher that I use as a vase on my dining room table. I'm happy to see that you found some pieces you love!

    Have a wonderful weekend~
