Thrift Report: "American Pickers" Style Estate Sale!

You'll see what I mean by "American Pickers Style Estate Sale" tomorrow when I post photos from the estate sale I went to on Saturday. It was crazy. So many items - most of them "manly" and rusty. There were antique cars, a ton of lawn mowers, over 300 clocks, etc. I have a feeling Mike (from "American Pickers") would have had a field day at the sale!

I picked up a few things - below I staged them on the record player display table I picked up at the flea market in October. We put it directly in the garage when we brought it home and I didn't get it out to sell until this weekend - when I sold it to "Evil Mendes" of the Nashville Rollergirls. She and her boyfriend love vintage items and every time we hang out, we always talk vintage shopping. They just picked up a record player and fell in love with the little table for their home! I will hopefully post a photo of the table in their home soon!

On to what I picked up! Four cute Christmas stocking holders, a box of handwritten recipes, a jar of really cute handles and hardware, a vintage atlas, and a leather satchel with 2 enormous and handsome thermoses!

All items, except the recipes, are available in my booth! I'm not sure what to do with the recipes yet - they would be amazing for mixed media art and collages but I'm not very artistic. Any ideas?

What did YOU find this weekend?
