Essential: Estate Sale Fun

I stumbled on an a-ma-zing estate sale today. The kind of estate sale that makes "pickers" like me happy all day. The kind where you look at stuff and say, "This is AWESOME!" then you look at the price tag and feel a little guilty about the deal you're getting. I picked up all this loot today. I'm not even going to say how much I spent on it all because you would be entirely too jealous and would maybe even quit following me ;)

This stuff is so cool! I might sell some in my Etsy shop... or I might just keep it all. You can look for it in my shop if you want.

These old soda bottles are so cool. I'm not sure what language they are in though. The Pepsi bottle says 1941 United Kingdom on it.

My favorite treasure though, are these matchboxes. They are so stinkin' cute. What a great decorating piece! I got the rockin' vintage ashtray there too.

I almost think I got too lucky with this one. I may not even go out in search of treasure tomorrow... for fear that the estate sale gods have already given me too much today!

  4. The soda bottles look like Arabic. The one on the left resembles this image I found of a vintage Arabic Pepsi bottle, and the bottle on the right in your post looks similar in style.

    I just found some old sheet music from the 20's that I'm planning on breaking up and framing together in a collage.

    Good luck with your finds!
