  1. An estate sale is a dangerous place to be on 1/2 price day ...

    A few hats, hat bands, hat stretcher, stampede strings, beaded belt, boot jack and a grinder. The two grey hats on the left were from an on-line auction (so ignore those).

    What a haul! I hope some of those hats fit you. A couple of real nice looking ones in the batch.

  3. Thanks Dale. Being a local sale I made sure all of them did fit (except for the little straw, but I had other reasons to get it). Good (or bad) thing the cowboy boots didn't fit. This late owner of a local lumber company had a dozen or more really nice ones (including some now banned exotics).

  4. I hit a thrift store yesterday. I'm a recent COVID survivor and was masked and sanitized so felt OK about the limited human contact. There were very few people in the store and I kept my distance.

    Now I'm ready to layer up!

    In this pile is a vintage Key denim jacket ($3), a nice pair of Carhartt bib-front overalls ($10), a few vintage neckties ($1 - $3 each), a couple of bandannas (25-cents each), along with shirts from Pendleton, Woolrich, Columbia, Eddie Bauer and Dickies ($3 each).

    Two of these Elephant Brand ('50s - '70s) bandannas. They were being used as shelf liners in the glassware department.

    Four of these Smokey the Bear bandannas.

    Also this Pendleton blanket/throw (62" x 55") for $3.

    Good crystal isn’t a luxury it’s a necessity for sipping good drinks in. Wine always tastes better when drunk from crystal too, just like eating from real silver silverware makes food taste better.

    Do you collect Dorrough's prints? I found 2 signed numbered Frisco prints he did at a thrift store. Trying to find out possible value before I decide if I need them. Or maybe buy then donate to the museum. Or....

    I hit the jackpot at a big ass yard sale in Tuscaloosa, AL yesterday. Couple of Hazel-Atlas starburst pattern glasses, A.L. Hirsch weiner dog dresser caddy, hair-on cowhide necktie, vintage Levis bandana, late 80s/early 90s truck stop swag western shirt, and a Chinasaur.

  15. ^^^^^ I’d say you did good Dale!

    My wife’s birthday was this past week and we have been tossing around thoughts of getting a side-by-side ATV or a beater “farm” Jeep (as my wife doesn’t like to get her current Jeep Wrangler dirty and won’t drive it across the creek). Jewelry is also always a good choice. So I thought I had this covered when I came home with a beaded bracelet ($5) and a “Farm Jeep” ($10).

    Now I’m sleeping in the shop and perusing ads for real Jeeps (or something in Sterling silver).

    Not 100% but pretty sure the glass is Hazel-Atlas. Nabbed it and the ice cube tray at a flea market yesterday. The bikes came from a yard sale today. $125 for the pair. The black one is a Java, a brand I've never heard of, and the pink one's a Schwinn.
