It was not a predictable thrifting weekend. Saturday is usually my best day but not this week. I planned the route and my thrift intuition was just plain off. I chose poorly and in the end Shara and I found next to nothing. It's difficult to know which sale will be the best. I tried to go to an estate sale first that mentioned key words like Craft Item and Vintage Items. Shara found one item, I found nothing. We moved to the next sale and again nothing. Finally we found a rummage sale by the Boy Scouts and I found a few things.
Sunday was a different story. I first popped by the Sebastopol Flea Market and then to a few sales.
I've never seen a ceramic funnel before. I thought it was too sweet. 50¢
This is my ReSelling find of the weekend. Saturday afternoon I tried one more sale with Dave and the children. It was rather far away, much further than I expected. It was a beautiful setting in the hills above Santa Rosa. I found this Cartier Sterling dish for $1.00. (notice the reflection) I adore finding sterling and gold more than anything when I thrift. It's truly a treasure to uncover something so valuable. One similar dish closed on eBay for $110. I found this at 1pm hours after it began. There is rarely a piece of silver that I won't turn over to see if the word sterling is on the piece. If it says EPNS it means it is electroplated or silverplate and is generally not worth very much. I see many pieces of it every day while I thrift. The thrift weekend luckily recovered and I so look forward to a relaxing BBQ today and some Sangria.
