Pretty Small Things: estate sale

I've only been to two estate sales in my life - I'm usually more of a thrift store girl - and I have to say, you can find some pretty sweet stuff!

Last weekend, Tim and I happened upon a sign for an estate sale and popped on by. (You know you've found a good partner when they're up for random estate sale exploring on a Saturday morning!)

We explored a lot, but didn't buy much - probably the best combination :)

We bought a set of four of these copper containers for just $8. They're in great shape and I love the little wooden knobs.

After digging through piles of linens, I walked away with this adorable hand towel for $1. The colors are so happy they just kill me! Hmmm a weird combination in retrospect...

This blue crochet blanket was the first thing I saw when I walked in the house. $2! You know I snatched her up! Carrying it around for the rest of our estate sale exploration was not super fun.... ;)

Tim and I have mixed feelings about estate sales. One the one hand, they're so packed and full of stuff you can really dig into. On the other hand, it's a little sad to be confronted by all of the treasured possessions of someone who's not there anymore... What do you think? Any estate sale junkies out there?
