To ready my Etsy shop for a busy autumn and holiday season, I did some shopping myself last weekend. On Saturday, I visited an estate sale at this historic house, below.
Unoccupied and shuttered for over 20 years, this three-story home is in complete disrepair and has plaster literally falling off the walls. Even though it has been sorely neglected, it was also chock full of interesting and wonderfully obsolete objects.
I have been to estate sales in some really scary houses. But this one was particularly frightening. Sometimes you gotta be brave to find the good stuff!
On Sunday, John and I took a stroll around the annual flea market on the grounds of the Lockwood Mathews Mansion Museum in Norwalk, CT.
There were several sellers there with an array of interesting vintage items, so I was able to find a few more fun things for my shop.
I'm spending this week photographing my finds to prepare them for their Etsy debut. There's lots to show you, so I'll devote my next three posts to my latest discoveries. Stay tuned!
