Perfectly Practical #65 - Garage/Estate Sales
Like that plate at the top of this post. I saw it at the estate sale of one of my Grandmother's best friends, Mrs. M. I knew this sweet lady and she was always very encouraging to me as I grew up.
The plate caught my eye because I had bought a espresso set in this same pattern in an European market. Mrs. M's daughter-in-law said that I could just have the plate as a reminder of my Grandmother's dear friend. Now I have a complete set with a story and memories attached to all of the dishes that sit on my kitchen windowsill.
Summer is a great time to go garage sale-ing and if you have never been, give it a try. It is rather fun especially when you take a buddy with you (right Stutesy-Tutesy?!)
I would love to hear about any major scores that you have had at garage or estate sales.
