More Estate Sale Finds

One of the best parts about summer is the number of estate sales in our city. I hit the jackpot at this sale.

This adorable, bisque, boy doll stands about 5 inches tall. His creamy, ivory coat looks perfect with vintage whites. I always put short pants and knee socks on my son when he was little. Don't tell him I shared this secret from his past with you.

Vintage Fraternal Twins

Aren't they just the cutest? A boy and a girl, with chippy little faces, hands and feet, nestled in a vintage, white porcelain soap dish.

This slate was hiding in the basement. I love the initials carved in the top. Just think how few supplies students once needed for the start of school. I think I am going to hang this slate in my kitchen for messages.

This basket is filled with great aluminum, children's cookware. A coffee pot, tea kettle, covered soup pot, roaster and vintage spoons and spatulas. Some little girl had fun cooking all those great pretend meals.

Come back often to see more great estate finds.
