Estate Sale Friday

I can't believe how quickly the week went by. Today was a gloomy, overcast day in San Francisco with 3 estate sales to go to.

The lines moved quickly except for this one (above) where they only let in a few people at a time. Small homes in San Francisco make it impossible to allow too many people in at one time.


Lots of knick-knack tables, but nothing that really caught my eye.


Not too much interest in anything here...


Cute pair of pink chairs, but a little petite for me...


I loved this pair of vintage chalkware bookends by Borghese. Unfortunately, one of the paws had a big chip. Too bad!


What a fun 1920's wooden ticket box from an old theater in Spokane, Washington. I thought it was a great prop, but what to use it for?

My purhcases from all three sales; a 1930's trophy for "accuracy typing" (love that), a sterling napkin ring and a vintage book. Hope to find more next week!

Have a great weekend!

Yes, the ticket box takes the cake. Maybe someone could use it to slip love notes in when they pass by? :)
Oh I know, when you hear of a good movie that you'd like to rent, just jot it down on a piece of paper and slip it in the box, then when movie night comes you could draw out a name of a movie. :)
