It was a busy Easter weekend that left little time for thrifting. But I did managed to squeeze in one estate sale and a yard sale.
The estate sale was that of a designer who had moved and was downsizing. I arrived 15 minutes after the sale started and there were already over a hundred people in the house! I missed out on some great stuff but still managed to get a few of the things I wanted.
I've always hated the fireplace cover in our living room (gold with a sliding metal mesh screen) so I was really excited to see this in the preview pictures of the estate sale. As soon as I got in the house, I searched through all the main rooms and the bedrooms but this was nowhere in sight. I asked three employees before one said that it was in the upstairs bathroom. I probably only got this because it was hidden away since a few people mentioned that they had wanted it when they saw me dragging it out afterwards. This lady sure had a ton of fabrics. I wished that I could have taken all of it home, but managed to control myself and only bought $10 worth.
My BIGGEST SCORE EVER was found at a yard sale I popped by. It was an hour after it had started and only a couple of people were milling around. At first I didn't see much but then I spotted this:
I thought to myself "no, it couldn't be", but it was - a Le Creuset french oven! I gingerly opened the lid (expecting to see all sorts of scratches and staining) but saw this:
Still enjoying my Le Creuset high! :)
Hope you had a wonderful Easter!
