Thrifty Thursday #107

Last week I showed you some of my awesome score from an estate sale at an old
photography business, and today I'm going to show you the rest of my loot.
Brace yourselves, my friends, because it's some good stuff! :)

I am a sucker for old photos. I went through a basket of pics and chose these two.
I always think it's sad when families don't treasure these. (Although I'm thinking these were probably extra prints due to the fact that this was a photography business.)
I paid a dollar for these.

This beautiful sewing needle card was sitting in a box with old postcards.
The gal just let me have it.
I think it would be a lovely addition to a shadow box.

I was thrilled to find all of these vintage postcards.
I picked them up not intending to buy them all- usually cards like these are at least a dollar apiece.
I had 25.
Can you believe she only asked $3 for all of them?!?
Deal of the year!

My final purchase was this old photo album.

There's page after page of gorgeous old photos.

The gal only asked $5 for this.

Did I mention how much I love old photos? :)

I have to say that this is truly the best haul I've ever gotten at an estate sale.
I headed to the car with an armful of treasures for which I only paid $22 (including the gems I showed you last week). I was a happy camper that day. . . or should I say happy junker?

I have projects planned for the old photos and the postcards, so stay tuned!

Happy treasure hunting to you all this weekend!

Thanks for stopping by and God bless.

Sing praise to the Lord, you saints of His, 
and give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.
Psalm 30:4

That old photo album of black and white's was an awesome find...and the price was even better. My sister once found a handful of late 1800's photos and there was a full name on a few of them...well long story short, she went online to a genealogy site, found living ancestors, connected with them and mailed the photos to the ever so happy family!!!

Nothing better than finding great treasures--you did so well. Those photos and post cards will certainly keep you busy for a while...Blessings, Diana
