Last week was one of my better outings as of late in regard to estate sales. I took a different approach choosing to attend the less exciting as advertised before the sales which promised "packed full", "antiques galore", " too much to list".... on & on... As it turned out things went pretty well. I still hit the big sales after the crowds died down.
Here's a few of my favorites:
Virginia Metalcrafters Bronze Seahorse Bookends
Lisa Larson Hippo
Mid Century Wooden Monkeys
Vintage Hollywood Regency Brass & Glass Nesting Tables
23030 N. Pima RdScottsdale, AZ. 85255(480) 585-5777
Hours: Monday-Saturday 10am-5pm
The prices are very reasonable, quality of goods outstanding. Each week a different color is 1/2 half off. This week everything with white on it is 1/2 price. I picked up 3 shirts and a sweatshirt for my daughter, total came to $12.00.
Not pictured: Men’s Department (kinda small, but worthwhile), Furniture Barn (located out back with large book department), Jewelry & Specialty Cases, Holiday Section (think Pottery Barn & department store brands), Pet Shop items, Artwork & Linens.
Large store with tons of inventory. Racks and racks of clothing, home goods & knick knacks. In back there is a silent auction area. The furniture department is huge & reasonably priced. The crafts department is really big & full of different products. Worth stopping by.
6535 Cave Creek Road Cave Creek, AZ (480) 488-8400 Weds. – Sat. 9am – 1pm
Great organization ~ near & dear to my heart is the work they do with children & autism
This is the perfect place if you need to set up house. They have everything from vacuum cleaners to curtains. Everything is quality. Not pictured: large book section, clothing boutique, large jewelry case, purse section, toy department, upscale home department. This is a large store & very popular as parking can be tough. Easy to navigate & spacious.
Closed SundayParking in Back I love this Thrift Store it has everything : It is clean, bright, cheerful , priced well & loaded with great stuff. Their Facebook page is a good source of information regarding sales, new merchandise & special events. I like how they post pictures of new merchandise & include prices. Located very close to Arizona State University I saw plenty of college kids going through the racks of clothing.
The book section is huge. It is organized & actually has books I wanted to bring home (see pics. later in post of what I purchased & what I paid). A young man was organizing & cleaning the shelves as I browsed.
Please take a look:
Here's what I found:
The Swedish table Cookbook $2
Brass Golf Ball Paperweight $2
Vintage Planter $2
Vintage Vanity Lipstick Tray $3
Vitamix Cookbook $1 I was happy to find a couple good books. I love books, but rarely find anything I don’t already have or need. There is a large area in back of the store with exercise equipment, large household items, sporting goods & general merchandise. Another highlight is the nice sized baby & toy section.
