Red and Mint; Seashells and Butterflies

Now that I've shown you Saturday's finds, it's time to talk about more of Sunday's estate sale goodies :) I have to say that estate sales are edging their way into my heart as a close second to thrifts. There's something so neat about going through a whole house full of treasure, especially when the house itself is as retro and intriguing as the things inside.

Here are some treasures from the first estate sale of the day:

Butterfly Scarf; 80s Shell Belt; Vintage Capezio Bag; Mint Green Costume Necklace: All, Estate Sale 5-23

Pretty lovely, right? :) I've actually been looking for this Capezio bag for awhile- ever since I found the chambray version at an estate sale a couple months ago! It's very roomy, but can be very small in a suitcase, so it's perfect for our Florida trip :)

You all know how much I love finding non-metal jewelry, and I just love the color of the mint green necklace. It was sitting in a box of jewelry marked $1 and everything was 50 percent off!

The butterfly scarf and the shell belt just needed to come home with me. They are so pretty but different, which fits my style just fine.

I hope everyone's last two days of the week fly by so you can enjoy the long weekend :) I know I'm looking forward to it!



  1. That bag is pretty neat :) What do you DO with all the stuff you buy? I try to make myself a list of things I'm actually looking for

  2. Ooh I love that bag!! Great finds as always, Amanda.

    Hope you have a wonderful wkend!


  3. Megan- I sell some, give some as gifts, and use some, and after awhile, I give away or sell some I've used. Recycling :)

    Thanks, Amy! You too!

  4. I love going to estate sales. I get most of my favorite vintage pieces from estate sales!

    Just came across your blog. It is lovely!


I love your comments! You all are the best!
