During 2010 I went to many estate sales, garage sales, thrift shops, antique shops, and flea markets. I found a lot of great things, here is a brief recap of some of my favorite finds of 2010.
Silver, silver and more silver. My number one thing to look for.
I found lots of great flatware, bowls, serving pieces.
Some of it I kept, some ended up on my Etsy Shop, some were given as gifts.
I love to look for old books.
And I do judge them by their covers, I always look for great graphics, both on the cover and inside.
I found many children's books, home decor books and some of the classics.
Unusual outdoor/garden items are another thing I keep my eyes open for. Like this wood cutout girl, and a wagon to hold flowers.
An old rusted bird bell and an elephant bird house are a few of the things that decorated the garden this year.
Old group photos. After seeing a story in Country Living I wanted to display the ones I already had, and add a few more.
Both of these are Victorian era school photos. Both found at estate sales.
Some old cabinet photos, too.
And I added to my collection of old candy tins, I particularly like the art nouveau style tins.
Looking forward to the amazing finds that 2011 will bring!
I hope everyone has a lovely New Year's.
