The Hoarders Report

Fresh from the Hoarders Estate Sale I attended yesterday, here's what made the trip back home with me...
Oh, and I didn't snap any pics at the sale, I was there to shop, not shoot! The time spent setting up a shot could make the difference between you and another OPPORTUNISTIC SHOPPER (hehehe) grabbing a certain treasure, so it was all hands free and on deck to the task at hand.
One more bit of pertinent info before we begin...as it was Day 2 of the sale, everything was HALF PRICE, so I pretty much STOLE everything you see below!

 

  

Bust of child reading. Headed to my booth or Warrenton in the Spring.

 


Shabby, romantic floral.


 

Another Frozen Charlotte bisque doll (and parts) for my growing collection. She'll be incorporated into an art project.

 


A quintet of cheeky bisque babies.




Big love on these...old pocket watch parts, pretty much grabbed for a steal.


 




Lamp parts galore could be found at this sale....floor lamps, table lamps, hanging lamps...



Really unique little trinket cases, headed to my Etsy Shop.


 

  

A circa 1860 dictionary, destined to be incorporated into many an art project!





They had HUGE standing filing cabinets just CRAMMED with dozens if not hundreds of each style of greeting card. All completely amazing, and I surely grabbed more than my fair share!


 


  

  


Can't you just see all these in one art project after another ?!?!




 

 I was also really pleased to find a little reminder of why we were all there at the sale in the first place...



Meet Mrs. Provance ot Provance Antiques.
This was her store, and we were all guests in her home, rummaging through all her glorious, junky stuff!

 


Thank you Mrs. Provance, and thanks to all of you for patiently waiting for this post.
I'm still recuperating from my recent illness and foot injury, so I apologize for not being quicker on the draw when it comes to getting things posted. I crashed pretty much as soon as we got home last night and slept well into the late morning today.

Also, I want to extend an apology to all my wonderful bloggy friends for not being able to make it over to each of your blogs to say hello this past week. God willing, when I get back to normal (whatever THAT is) health-wise, I'll be able to drop by and say "hey" to each of you personally. I miss y'all!

Have a wonderful Sunday and see ya next week!

Faded Charm said...

Oh, I would have loved to be able to go to this sale. You found some goodies. This reminds me of an awesome sale I went to years ago. It was an auctioneer who had hoarded stuff for years, and I mean the good stuff. I have never seen so much architectural things in my life. Back then I was only buying for myself and not reselling yet or I would have gotten so much more. I did find some great pieces that I'll never part with though.

Hope you have a wonderful week.

Kathleen

Tracy Suzanne said...

Hugs Sweetie, Tracy :)
