This last weekend included thrifting at estate sales, Garage Sales, Moving Sales, Thrift stores, Craiglist and a Flea Market. I think I hit nearly every kind of thrifting that there is. The weather was warm and sunny and it felt great to be home again.
Friday was my best day of the weekend with an estate sale with my favorite estate sale company. I found books, jewelry and mid century modern items. I did much better with sticking with my thrift priorities that I mentioned in the last post. I left inventory behind that I could sell but I knew that I didn't want to sell. I spent less but can handle dealing everything I bought. I'm hoping to get all the inventory listed from Friday today and tomorrow.
Saturday took me down to San Jose where I bought 39 pieces of iittala glassware from Finland.
The photo doesn't show how fab they are. They are part of the ice style of glasses that iittala is known for. It was fun to thrift in the South Bay and up the Peninsula. I found the Arabia Cat pitcher in Palo Alto at a garage sale.
This was my favorite find of the weekend by far. It's a book called The Adventures of Perrine and it's my mother's favorite childhood book. She gave it to me to read when I was a child and it quickly became my favorite. My mother gave her very worn copy to Cerys a year and a half ago. I've never ever come across a copy of this until yesterday. It's worth around $75 on Amazon.
