A Great Sale!



I've been following Dan May to many an estate sale over the years but starting this weekend he has set down roots in a wonderful old warehouse at The Alameda Point. 


 Let's take a spin, shall we?


















































Pretty amazing huh?
 
Dan is still going to be holding onsite sales as well as frequent sales at his new warehouse, so best get on his email list here.


And,
 if you're wondering, I didn't leave empty-handed.


I scored these awesome vintage fishing bobbers,


an old apothecary jar I promptly cleaned and filled with lavender and placed in my linen closet,


 and this fabulous vintage Escada mirror.


I just couldn't leave without it!








 All I know is that it desperately wanted to come home with me,


 an it found a lovely new home on my dresser.


I almost forgot!
I found a new "Tommy Trojan" and upgraded my UCLA VS USC "art installation" which was perfect timing after our BIG WIN yesterday!!! 

  
How was your weekend?
