Saturday morning, bright and early, Shayla picked me up and we hit the estate sale scene here in Portland. We went to two whole house affairs that ab-so-lute-ly blew my mind. I mean. These were insane collectors after my own heart.
My heart aches for all the great UNBELIEVABLY CHEAP home stuff that would be the perfect way to decorate my apartment...if it wasn't 2,800 miles away. Sighs.
Well there was still SO much to sort through, honestly I could've bought a whole car load.
A few gems (all for mere cents or a dollar or two):
Amelia Earhart goggles? Glasses? Red baron bifocals? WHAT ARE THESE? I have no idea, but I could not leave them behind. They are so incredible, who wore these?
A dust jacket-less first edition of Truman Capote's In Cold Blood.
Obsessed with that Kennedy pin.
"An artist's crayon at scholar's price"
Such a sucker for old notebooks and datebooks and diarys!!!
THIS WAS INSIDE THE OTHER ADDRESS BOOK!

Maybe my favorite sneaky find, which I honestly didn't realize til I was in the car!
The lil' gold pencil (if you twist it, the lead pokes out) pendant above, which was with the lil red books, is almost exactly like:
Joanie's ever present gold pen!
