I would normally say Happy TGIF
but in my case it is Happy ESF!
Happy Estate Sale Friday!
I love Fridays when I can grab a Starbucks
and take off first thing in the morning
for my Estate Sale rounds.
I could wish for better weather
but I don't want to push my luck...
I would rather wish for bargains and great finds!
And I am happy to report
that I found some this Friday!
This is the first house that I went to.
The sale was advertised on Estatesales.net as
"Quality in South Leawood".
The home is for sale
so I am guessing
that they are moving to downsize.
I love Estatesales.net.
I remember the good old days
when my BFF and I would grab
a newspaper and circle the Estate Sales
and print out the directions.
Isn't this a great house?
This is a photo from the MLS listing.
You can see the whole thing here:
Sorry about the Iphone photos.
So, I waited in line and walked into
this gorgeous French Country Home
that was professionally decorated to the nines!
Look at those toile curtains
leading into the great room!
Another MLS Photo.
Look at those hardwood floors!
And I am not the hugest fan of wallpaper
but I do like traditional when it is done right.
In the great room the tapestry
over the fireplace hides something
we all have in our homes.
The Television! Clever!
I liked the kitchen,
but it was a tad dark for me.
I did find a couple of
goodies in there though...
These little Tole trays were $1.50 each.
Miss Beaux commented on them
when she got home from school,
"You really like those trays don't you?"
I guess I do have an obsession with them.
But can you blame me?
And this little guy is going in my black hutch,
joining his other bunny friends.
Isn't he a cutie!
At the next house
I found this bolster cover from Nell Hill's.
My BFF and I are going there this weekend.
The bolster was originally priced at $26.00
but the Estate Sale price was...
$8.00 but wait!!!
It was half off day
because the sale was ending today...
Here are some things that DIDN'T
go home with me although
I wish they did.
Lovely French Display Cabinet for $1,500.00
Another small cabinet
with a mirror for $895.00.
This would be cute in a
bathroom with glass doors.
I really wanted these white Staffordshire Statues.
But, my maximum I will pay is $50.00
and they were $115.00.
I am happy with my $14.00 worth of
Estate Sale fun finds!
I hope you have a fabulous weekend!!!
Until Next Time,
