Friday is usually the start of our weekly rounds of estate and yard sales.  There were only two nearby today, probably because many people are going out of town for the Memorial Day weekend.  We didn’t do too bad today.  Our first stop was a yard sale where we picked up some great gold letters and a German street sign.

The seller said the sign indicated a one way street, but we translated it to “one way trot”.  Obviously, some things get lost in translation!

Our next stop was an estate sale. It was only the 2nd day of a four day sale, so nothing was marked down yet, but we picked up a few interesting items to add to our collection.

A vintage bread box and some spools

Leather-trimmed Hartmann luggage, toast server, small cup, and picture stand

– A small silver cup with a bird on the handle and a vintage shoe shine bucket.

By this point we were starving, so our next purchase was some road food.

This bag of chips supposedly contains 5 servings (ha ha) – it barely satisfied 2 hungry women!

On our way home, we decided to stop by Goodwill.  We found an awesome leather-trimmed suitcase (see photo above). But the best find of the day was this Bega Seam-Sewer antique sewing machine. Some of the parts are missing, but can you believe the exquisite detail? This beauty will look great as a display piece!

Thanks for keeping up with us. Our next show is Monday, May 28 at Stifel & Capra during the Falls Church Memorial Day Parade and Festival.
