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
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
bag of tiny bottle brush trees
dragonfly glass ;)
2 bottles of Wine!
Yes, we found Wine!!!


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 ;)


  1. You really got a lot of stuff. I have yet to go to an estate sale, but probably will when it gets cooler.

  2. The yard sale stuff was great score!! Love that candlestick also. Wine is so fun to try out different kinds...I love wine tasting parties.

  3. For all the years & estate sales I've been to, NEVER a bottle of wine, durnnit!

    Good for you, great finds.

    Have a beautiful summer's eve ~

  4. Found you thru Grandma Yellowhair. Now I'm off to check out all your stores!!! My...Oh....My.



  5. You always find the best treasures Deb! I've never been to an estate sale before. I used to always go to garage sales ~ the most wonderful source to buy kids toys and books.

    Enjoy your wine! :)

  6. I know I should love the wine, but that metal cabinet your son bought for $2.00 is pretty neat. Great finds!

  7. Very nice score on the wine. Have you opened any yet?

  8. Score on the wine! Looks like the Clos du Bois is a 1999 and I would venture to say it is worth about $20, so you did great!

    You found great goodies. I have two brass candlesticks with those types of clips. They hold a glass shade, but you know what works? Take it to Home Depot and look for those glass shades that fit on ceiling fans. Mine had one clear glass shade and one frosted. A few years ago I was playing around with them and exchanged the frosted one for a gorgeous clear one. I loved the result!

  9. So funny because every time I have a garage sale, I always want to sell the bottles of liquor that no one around here is going to drink but we bought for a large New Year's Eve party we had one time. Dh says it's illegal LOL. I know some people would be mighty happy.


I'd love for you to leave me a comment. Helps me to know I'm not totally crazy...like my family thinks I am!
