Wine Score!

It's Nifty Thrifty Tuesday with Linda our hostess over at
Coastal Charm!
Be sure to drop by and see everyone's goodies!
I was notified that there was an Estate Sale on Saturday in Patterson.
The last one we went to was FAB!
Remember those huge tools?? 
And the prices were great!
This one was by the same organizer,
so I was very hopeful :)

On the way we saw a sign for a yard sale downtown, in the old section.
Love going to this area, there's usually good stuff ;)

And sure enough, it didn't disappoint!
These people really wanted things gone.
Allmost everything was 10-25 cents.

We got:
a couple old books
old wooden hinged cigar box
sweet old frame
old candle stand
a basket (for me to practice on for the Flower Girls Basket)
goodies inside for Halloween Treats
organizer
toothpick holder
bag of old clothes pins
bag of stamps (at $4 I think it was the most expensive thing there)
heart box
several vintage copies of The Workbasket
old See's Candy Eater Egg
decorative watering can
and some red velvet ribbon


My fav is this candlestick.
I think it had a shade at one time..
note the wire clips?


Middle son picked up this metal cabinet for $2


Total: $8.45

OK Onto the Estate Sale!!!!
Heart pounding:)

Well, let's say it was a let down...kinda.
Most things were very overpriced.
But we managed to find a few goodies! ;)

a box of ribbons
nest
bag of tiny bottle brush trees
dragonfly glass ;)
and
2 bottles of Wine!
Yes, we found Wine!!!


Total:
$8.00

Once we got home and The Hubs saw the wine,
he said lets go back and get more. LOL
So we did!
When we got there the first time
there must have been 6 cases of different Wines.
When we got there the second time
about half was gone.

They were $3 each or 4 for $10


Needless to say we walked out with 8 bottles!
Some of the brands we haven't heard of before.

Sounds like a private wine tasting will be held ;)
