Estate Sale Season Hath Cometh

This year one of my New Year's resolutions was to step up my game in the world of thrifting. Try out new resources. Seek higher quality vintage. One resource that I have never really explored in depth is estate sales. I've been to a smattering of them over the years, only to feel downright intimidated by the fierce, or, shall I say, psychotically fierce competition. I know I've got a thing or two to learn about the game that is Estate Saling, but I think I'm ready to push up my sleeves and go for the glory. I went to a few different estate sales this weekend and this is what I found:

Not my best estate sale finds ever, but I do LOVE that casserole. I think I like it best without it's metal carrier, though. I swoon over those sweet lace gloves... they will kind of go with most of my wardrobe since I've been wearing so much black this last year (what can i say? it's slimming). The first set of mugs are 70's Japanese, the second are 60's "Smug Mugs." I'm not sure about that necklace but I'm guessing it's 70's Sarah Coventry.

I plan on heading out into the field again next weekend... maybe I'll bring my camera this time and snap some action shots!
