Every so often we will have an estate sale in the area that starts on a Thursday and runs until Sunday. On Thursday morning, I was standing outside waiting for over an hour for my number to be called with extremely cold feet and hands that had no gloves. You would think I would remember that I live in Wisconsin, and it is still winter.
When my number was finally called, I understood why only a few people were allowed inside. This was a three bedroom, one bath, living room, dinning room, small kitchen with an attached garage, and a basement ranch styled house.
The ladies working the sales appeared fluster whispering amongst themselves, after several phone calls, and more whispers everyone in the house was informed that a worker was found dead in her home from carbon monoxide poisoning. Many of the regulars shopping the sale knew her, as you can imagine everyone was terribly upset, and a dark mood fell over the house.
Everyone quickly checked out so that the ladies could have a few moments together to recover from the shock of their friend and co-workers passing.
This is what I purchased....
While walking around the garage, the
shape of these tools caught my attention.
I liked the shape on top of this screw.
This one was linear in design.
The center had both straight lines,
and curves to compliment the other pieces.
What will I do with these three tools? My first thought was to group them and hang them on the wall, but now I am thinking perhaps they can hold/display some of my vintage photos. What do you think?
As I waited in line to checkout a coffee table was next to me (photo taken with my phone at the sale) so of course, I checked out all the items on the table while I waited. I also purchased two autograph books
(see the red arrows) with some pretty amusing limericks written between 1904 and 1934. I will do a separate post about autograph books and the limericks.
Looking forward to see what everyone else found this week.
