What I bought at the big Pittsfield estate sale

I went late-ish: I arrived at 8:30. The doors opened at 9 a.m. I was #34. I still was able to get all the vintage Christmas ornaments. And then some. It was quite the time. I saw all the regulars. My peeps.

I came home and organized, intent on getting the goods packed away before DH got home. I was successful. Sally came over. We began organizing some stuff kinda coming together in my Mahalo Lounge. (Big DIY idea comin’ yer way.) Then, I needed a seriously serious cocktail. So now… it’s lucky fer you that I got these photos processed. In any case, the pictures are worth a couple of thousand words, right?

Tip to view photos: On a desktop computer, click any photo and it should double in size on screen. Click ESC or off the photo to return to story.

Update, since questions are coming in: These are the “ends” of the enamel top of a vintage kitchen cabinet table. Someone removed them, added some wood structure underneath, and I think, used them as shelves. I am going to use them as shelves. $1 each.
Questions came in on this one too: It’s a small table for children. It has fold-down legs underneath the top. and it has a GLITTER LAMINATE top! Now… I just need the grandchildren to go with. I’m not rushing weebit, though – she’s only 22!
Velvet to use as backing for a broken jewelry Christmas trees. There were a TON of frames at the sale. I need to go back and pick up a few for the trees. I am going for the very ornate classic style tree.
These clear plastic thingies are for standing up photos in frames.
Broken rhinestone jewelry and such for my broken jewelry Christmas tree project.

    OMG, I don’t even know what to say, you are SO lucky. Congrats. On the leopard rug front, go traditional. Best to you.

    I have 4 chairs that match your child’s table! Always snatch up glitter items. And what a wonderful lot of small items. Definitely immediately useful:)

    I’m Lovin’ the fabulous graphics on that box of Old Maid playing cards! (with the lady-of-a-certain-age gussied up too girly for her age, and painting her neglected mouth with lip rouge that’s too red; the commercial artwork in those days was a hoot)
    Nice scavenging at the sale!

    What you identify as part of an enamel kitchen cabinet looks to me to be a leaf from an enamel top kitchen table, esp. since you mention it has some sort of wooden structure underneath. You didn’t mention a size, but I have such a table dating to the 30s or 40s that belonged to my grandmother that looks very much like the one in the photo. The curvy edge makes me think it might not have been part of a cabinet.
