When I got an e-mail saying that there would be an estate sale here…
…you know I was itching to get in there to check out all of the goodies.
The inside of the house did not disappoint. It had all the gorgeous charm of an old house complete with pocket doors, a library, and an open and airy kitchen that was to die for:

But you know I managed to grab up some goods anyway!
Here’s the cute “dream” decoration that I bought. I plan to place it on my fixed up dresser (when it’s actually fixed up of course!)

All in all, this estate sale was a bit of a splurge for around $77 for everything (including a few extras that I got in the form of Christmas decorations and books for the hubs). But, I plan to re-sell a few items, such as the prints inside of the wallpaper book and the vintage movie poster.
So what do y’all think? Wasn’t that a pretty house? Did anyone else snatch up some antiques or unique items at estate sales or thrift stores lately? Please spill the beans.
