Why estate sales rock.....




.....because seriously. The lady whose estate this was used to make jewelry & specifically at one point was very into enameling so there was an entire old tool box FULL of copper stampings!!!!!!



Man I scored the mother load! I also got a rack of old lace trim...I don't think I'll keep the rack. I don't have the space for it but whoah....all that copper would have set me back mucho dinero.



It isn't fair to horde it all to myself so I think I'll do a little giveaway in a few days to spread the love....


Aloha,

Thanks everyone! The pictures don't even do it justice and it came in an old metal toolbox too! There is so much copper in there. There must be at least 7 lbs!!!!!! Maybe ten! OMG, I'm still drooling over it!

That is awesome! I love estate sales for that very reason. You might not get much for 3 or 4 and then BAM...a find big enough to keep you looking for the next one. Way to go!
