The thrifting season seems to have arrived in Sonoma County with countless estate sales, garage sales and rummage sales filling the Garage Sale Classifieds Section of the Newspaper.
I began my thrift weekend Friday at a house packed full of collectibles. I bought just a few items though since the prices were rather high and the type of antiques didn't really fit my style. It was a beautiful display though and still worth attending.
Saturday morning, Keiran and I set out to the Petaluma Live Oak (Waldorf) Charter School Rummage sale at the fairgrounds. We were first in the gate and luckily had time to shop before many people arrived. We both could have stayed there for hours rummaging through the books, clothing and toys. Clothing was priced at $5 a bag. The prices were so affordable and the selection fantastic.
We next went to a Church Rummage sale where nearly everything was a dollar except for books that were 5 for $1. We bought an entire box of items including the Longaberger basket for $12.
I found this lovely vintage necklace with a Sterling clasp at the estate sale on Friday. Les Bernard can be quite collectible and definitely a name to lookout for. This necklace was marked "Les Bernard."
There was so much interest in this brooch it is now for sale in Little Shop.
Overall a lovely weekend but the best part was attending the Maker Faire on Sunday.
