It is what we did LAST Saturday.

And I would do it every Saturday if you let me.

Thank goodness we have an etsy business so we can justify our fun.

It is estate sale a-going.

{yes that is a hobby!}

We had not been in a while… and then it was supposed to drizzle in the morning anyway.  Perrrrfect!

We do all our discovery on craiglist.  Then we set out with the Garmin and some reuseable totes in our bags.  That plus some cash in our pockets… we are all set.

I do wish however that Seattle had a search feature to select “Estate Sales of Scandinavian Architects”….

That would be like Christmas morning. 

We have gotten pretty good at spotting potential houses full of treasure though, just by the ad.

Last Saturday, the two we selected in the end…Both Scandinavian.  One Architect and one Engineer.

X marks the spot, I should say.

These are just a few few things {check out etsy in the coming weeks for more}….but let me JUST tell you. 

1.  I have a new inspirational collection for my Christmas Dessert table this year.  You will just have to read this blog in December to see them all.

2.  Did you see that box?  I don’t think I have ever picked anything up so fast.  Perfect condition, in their box even!  And they are green!  And the price…. I could not have bought ONE new  in Finland for the price of all of them.


I love giving awesome things good homes.  Especially those things from Scandinavia and from the mid century…..

And things we don’t give a new home…. hello etsy!

Hope your Saturday is as good as our last one!
