I went to a great estate sale on Saturday in Decatur, Georgia. I found it listed on estatesales.net and waited until Saturday to shop, primarily because it was 50 percent off day. The sale was run by Old Mill Antiques, an estate sale company that lets you put together piles and gives you a price partially based on how much you buy. Usually, the more you buy, the better the deal. That was the case last weekend. There was so much at the sale, they are actually going to do one more weekend. The homeowners decided to add a lot more things to the sale for this upcoming weekend. I am still trying to decide if I will go again.
The homeowner had a huge collection of cat figurines and cat jewelry. There were lot s of other things including antique furniture, vintage toys, books, china, and home decor. Since I collect cat figurines too, I found lots of treasures to keep and a few to sale.
Here is some of what I purchased.
Two cats on a fancy pillow. This one was made in Occupied Japan.
I found quite a few vintage Siamese cat figurines I really like their playful poses.
I also got a couple of Enesco figurines. Most of these were made in the 1980s.
This mother and baby cat figurine was also made in occupied Japan.
This large carved wooden cat was made in the Philipines.
I also bought several cat tins.
This cross stitch pillow was very well done and in excellent conditions. It features a pair of Siamese cats.
This was a cute framed cross stitched piece. Smile.
And some vintage stationery.
This Waterful Tic Tac Toe game brought back lots of memories. I had one of these when I was a little girl.
There was so much costume jewelry. I focused on and purchased many of the pieces that featured cats. I showed them to my daughter tonight and she wanted several of them so of course I gave them to her. I will sell a few of them but I plan on keeping most of them. I am just trying to decide how I am going to display them all. I will share them in a future post.
