Since I had planned to go to this estate sale on Saturday anyway…for the photo session thing, you know…well, just to make it really authentic, I had to buy something. You understand that, don’t you? 🙂 Luckily, it was a pretty good sale, in a very nice neighborhood with a LOT of great looking things. I could have loaded up, but decided to keep it at a minimum and people were milling around grabbing things left and right. This clock was hanging on the wall with a pricetag of $20. I took it down & saw that it’s from Homegoods, retail price was $60, so I did pretty good on it. It’s a huge clock. I love clocks!
I moved the smaller clock that was here in our den up to my hubby’s office and put this bigger one in its place. I’m likin’ it!
This came from another sale that I just happened upon. They had some older things and I just thought this set of silver plated silverware was SO pretty. The whole lot was $10 and even though I don’t do a lot of fancy entertaining, I think these will be fun to have around. I’ve only got our everyday set of utensils, so these might come in handy. I love those soup spoons.
They are stamped Rogers Oneida and I’m sure they are quite old. Get out the silver polish, Rhoda! These older pieces are so dainty.
Back at the estate sale, I picked up this cute bunny for $1.
And this birdsnest for $1.

My favorite kind of post. I love to see what everyone finds. I passed on some silver this past Saturday and now you have me regretting it.:)
I am excited to try the “silver” trick from one of your commentors on here. If that works, I won’t pass on it anymore.:)

Hi, girls! Thanks for looking at my thrifty finds. I did try to silver cleaning method that Jill mentioned & it really DID work! I had heard about it and never tried it. The silverware looks sparkling now & I think we'll be using it some for everyday & not keeping it locked away for special occasions.

Love the big clock and the sterling silver flatware. What great finds! I need to go some estate sales soon!
You always have the best luck at finding things, Rhoda! The clock was a deal and you’ll need those larger numbers as you ‘age’. LOL And why would I be surprised to see you ‘adopting’ another bunny? I’m slowly building a ‘family of ears’ also!!
Keep up the good work girl!
