So...I saw this email in my inbox...

This morning when I was checking my email, I saw that there was an estate sale not too far away.This is what the ad said:
My life in one big, whole-house sale. Multiple generations. Grandma’s collectibles, you-name-it vintage 50s, space age 60s, retro 70s, Williams Sonoma 80s , Crate & Barrel 90s, and present day. Many household goods: gobs of kitchen stuff (Russel Wright, Franciscanware, and Harlequin), glass stemware, cool black Pottery Barn stoneware dish set. Lots of collectibles. Christmas goodies. Some items are still in their original, unopened packaging–-get a head start on your Christmas shopping! Original art work and framed prints. Solid cherry drop-leaf table (61") seats six. Mod acrylic Howard Miller grandfather clock with docs. Full-size mattress and box spring with 6-drawer platform. Custom solid cherry entertainment center. Very nice white Maytag washer & dryer (electric). Maytag 30" gas range. NEOLT 48” adjustable drafting table. Antique mahogany server. 36" square glass coffee table.

Who knows what treasures you’ll find! 

At first I was thinking about the Fransiscanware for Auntie, and Harlequin for me. It was a teeny, tiny house, and it was the second day-I wish I would have been there the first day! I did find this though...

 It's a vintage Fiesta #1 mixing bowl!!

 It has a couple of little nicks around the rim, and some scratches in the glaze on the sides.

 it was marked $20 and when I came in the lady said it was the last day and they were making deals so just ask. I asked what the best price they could do on it and they said $10! WOW! I'm glad I asked!!! Now I have #4 (I think) and #1-so I only need to find #'s 7, 6, 5, 3, and 2-the hunt continues!

These are the little juice glasses I picked up at the HLC retail store on the day we visited the tent sale-they look super in this little carrier Auntie found for me earlier this spring. They look like they were made for it!!
