I didn’t get around to going to estate sales on Saturday, so Sunday afternoon after church I made my way to Little Rock to try my luck at finding some good finds. Since it was the last day of the sales, both sales had 50% or 60% off. Neither sale had much left, but I still found a handful of goodies. Here are the highlights.
I found this little charmer at Estate Sale Professionals’ sale, who had everything 60% off. This is a Napco birthday girl. I believe the reason why she lasted so long is because she was hiding under the fake flowers in her planter. Check out the before and after:
This is another one of those that I may keep for myself. I was born in June so since this is a June figurine, I’ve got a great excuse to keep her! 🙂
Next, at Estate Sale by June, I found this wonderful Homer Laughlin platter. I know all of you mosaic buffs are drooling over it, and so was I, but I couldn’t find any chips or cracks in it! I really can’t bring myself to destroy a perfectly good piece of history without it already being damaged. So, for now, it will look gorgeous at my antique booth at Jenifer’s in Conway.
I haven’t tried doing mosaics yet, but every time Mom or I accidentally break something, rather than get upset we tell ourselves the breakage would be “great for doing a mosaic project” and save it for the day when we’ll miraculously have the free time to do it. I have perfect little antique tables for doing mosaic on and I’ve bought the grout, so maybe soon I’ll fix one up so I’ll have another fun topic to blog about!
