Estate Sale Shopping

Oh I went to an estate sale today just to price this chair that I really liked. I  have missed other chairs like it at sales because they were up in the $300 range. I got to the sale an hour before to be the first in line and I was. I took a book to read while waiting and that really passed the time for me. I was expecting to be disappointed in the chairs price so was braced for a big sticker $$$
 Here is the chair I wanted a windsor comb back style . I was thrilled with the price of $40
                                                                       


It sets proudly in my cluttered  kitchen till I can take a couple chairs downstairs 

Then I bought this sweet little piano music box. I thought I had broke myself from buying stuff like this just because it's cute and adorable and because I liked, but guess I'm not broke yet.


The little cherubs angels were just to cute to pass up, tell me i'm right? LOL  The tune is Beethoven's Fur Elise
My 11 year old grandson played this at one of his piano recitals once 

When the music's playing all the little heavenly cherubs move about playing their instruments.The little cherub on the piano goes up and down the keys
Hope you are having  a nice Saturday also, I even got a short nap today 



Linky parties I joined in

  2. That chair was a score. I sold a children's cream colored chair just like it before Christmas. Wish I had it back to sell in my booth.

  6. My grandfather had a chair like that. I think one of my brothers has it now. I don't have any family furniture which makes me sad. Oh, except I have the sewing machine table (the machine is not in it) from the 1950's that I took the legs off to ship here in Puerto Rico which I use as a night stand. I love estate sales which do not happen on our little island. I did buy an Asian desk recently from a friend who is moving and a long woven reed bench that is very comfortable. It needs a little repair, and I will do that and then paint it. I would not have been able to pass up the little piano either and the cherubs are darling with your rosaries hanging in the background. I have a rosary hanging over my side of the bed. There happened to be a screw in the concrete wall which I told the painters to leave not knowing if I would ever use it, but it is not easy to hang things on a concrete wall, however I have ordered Command hooks so I can hang a few more things. Have a good weekend. Blessings, Nancy Carr
