After saving ourselves last weekend, we started out in earnst to this weekends estate sale set in a gorgeous location over looking a gorgeous lake. The house itself was in a bad state - sadly to the point were it would be cheaper to tear it down and rebuild rather then mend, but had amazing views overlooking the water - you could just imagine how such a view would wake you up in a morning and make you feel right with the world. This sale had been advertised for a number of weeks and its one of the largest sales we've been to yet with plenty to be had and we came away with a number of things but we're rather well mannered in just picking things we really have a need for.
With honeymooning in Chicago and falling for the city how could a girl not walk away with this little souvenir tea cup and saucer. They both feature pictorials of famous places to see - all of which we visited bar the Buckingham Fountain [although it is right by where the Bean now sits] and our hotel was by the Marina city. It most likely dates from the 1960s as Marina City - the two corncob like buildings were completed in 1964 and were a big deal architecturally in their time. A quick wash and its shined up well. Joe also spotted some Transformer toys which we grabbed to and altogether we only spent $5. A perfect amount for a lazy Saturday morning in my view.
Have you found any vintage finds lately?
