AmberRose
(363 items)

I had a gap in my day. Usually I would hit a thrift, but I was in the middle of no where with an hour to kill. I was driving down a street actually looking for a gas station...what's that? Estate Sale!!!
This was an 8 bedroom mansion and about a 10 minute wait to get in. The house was filled with what I like to call "Home Goods junk" and not my lovely vintage...wait what is that...in the pantry...Blenko! Not just one carafe, but eight. I didn't get my hopes too far up as I expected a crazy price tag...nope...four bucks each!!
Needless to say I jumped. But how are you suppose to carry 8 carafes to check out? I think I became a bit of a pain for the staff because I insisted they come help carry. Well...there were a lot.
You will also notice that this picture has been taken outside...hubby as yet unaware of purchase...

    hi amber nice find do those have much value
  7. AmberRose AmberRose, 2 years ago
    Hey Lundy, these run anywhere from 20 to 35 dollars each. After friendly negotiations with the hubby...he kindly requested that I not turn into a hoarder...I have gotten a booth at the Randolph Street Market here in Chicago. I will offload a chunk of these there. Probably go with 20. I plan on posting pictures of the experience and CW is sending me CW swag to promote the site. It will be a lot of work but I'm excited.

    They're great!!! I love the fact you found the eight of it all of a sudden! and cannot stop laughing at you hiding such a find to your husband!!! :)

    Hey Austro! Actually it is a little overwhelming as these guys take up some room and are pretty heavy. Hubby still doesn't know but I have snuck a couple of the ones that I particularly like into the house. Heh heh heh.

    Going in for set up this afternoon!!! I have two truckloads. As much getting set up tonight as possible then the rest early tomorrow morning. I am laying bets on what I will pull out of the sale to bring back. : ))
    I am going to try not to buy anything but will keep my eye out for an 8 ringer Festivo and Abraham Palatnik. But I am a cheap one so I don't know if I can stand to pay retail!

    Merci Scandi! I am all a flutter.
