My First Fridgie!

This weekend was full of family barbecues, but I did manage to squeeze in a fabulous estate sale at a very old farm in Bridgewater, CT.
They wouldn't let us in the actual house, it was allegedly empty.

Everything that was for sale was in a barn that had been converted to living quarters -- and it was awesome in there.  A very small kitchen with everything built into the walls, and that's where I started of course, and I was crushed to find that there was NO Pyrex.

There were tons of old books and old sheet music - mostly classical - and an empty cello case. I almost bought the case in order to decoupage it but decided to leave it for someone who would treat it honorably.

Sometimes I have a hard time believing I live near such beauty as this farm and it's property.













And check out these ancient floorboard in the actual barn!


There were a ton of tools and gardening items and things I didn't even know what to do with in here.

There was also this gorgeous cabinet that the estate sale people for which the estate sale company was asking $300.







Music stand, pastry cutter, small strainer, pulp fiction, a collection of stories
from Edgar Allan Poe published in 1934, some Bach sheet music
And my favorite finds!
My first fridgie and a very heavy juicer
After the estate sale and tag sales where I ended up only buying Stephen King books for the boys, we all went to my Dad's house.  He and my stepmother had already been to the estate sale since they live less than a mile away from it.  My stepmother handed me the fridgie above - she had picked it up for me the second she saw it.  It's in awesome shape, despite being lidless.  Yay!
Silk Flowers, an old version of Parcheesi (nothing missing!) and a thin
box for tea that I am decoupaging for a friend.
I'm pretty excited about the Dashiell Hammet and Raymond Chandler books.  I love mysteries and those two are classic masters.
