An Estate Sale Bust and Unexpected Bounty
What I could surmise by what was offered, either or both of the owners at one time was a watchmaker/jeweler or antiques dealer - which meant everything was priced REALLY high. Even on half price day! I ended up with an orange juice pitcher, a straw handbag and some vintage clip-on earrings that I plan on taking apart for the funky beads. I was too dispirited to photograph any of my booty.
However, Randy's aunt gave me a large bag of her no-longer-wanted costume jewelry -some of it is worth keeping intact! The stuff I want to take apart and re-purpose is funky too, so I'm excited to get upstairs and start sorting everything.
I have been sick for the last 3 days, nasty head/chest cold - I am very low energy and blah. I can't wait to feel normal again. Only four days until I am in Las Vegas! YAY!
