Estate sale heaven? I went back twice.......

Last friday I hit an estate sale...it started at 1:00 and by the time I got there it had already begun and there were about 15 people in line in front of me......it was o.k., a beautiful day to be outside.
This was a smaller, older home that proved to be one of a 'hoarder'.  Lucky me!!!!!
Doll head, tiny pincushion, glass shaker, rare card game, tart tins, antique powder box, Flinch card game, antique velvet jewelry case, large laundry or locker pins.

Huge floral serving bowl, I bought a smaller one too that I forgot to photograph.

Lots of ephemera, I especially love the Night Before Christmas booklet.

2 old composition notebooks, the blue one someone used as a recipe book.

Fabulous old hymn books.

Humongous bound magazines from the 1800's.
This heavy book is 16 inches tall.

Anyone need an antique Bible?

The amount of books in this little house was astounding.

I was in hog heaven with all these books.

So I came to this sale totally unprepared and within moments my hands were full.....a nice man offered to start a pile for me and then gave me a basket.....hmmm, he must have known that I'd find a ton more. He was right.
I had to make 3 trips out to my car and then I went back the next day for more.
Note to self.....must attend more estate sales.....:)

Thanks to those who added helpful comments about my blog. For some reason all of my sidebar had disappeared so I couldn't see anyone's blog.....weird, now it's back thankfully.
Hope you all have a great week, don't forget to check out my etsy as I add these goodies to my shop!!!!!!
