Estate Sale Treasures: Friday's Find #260

Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! In addition to my usual thrifting haunts and yard sales, I've been to a few good estate sales lately, where I found this interesting piece. The seller referred to it as a vintage magazine rack. I can see it could certainly be used for that. However, when I wasn't able to find any similar ones online, I became curious. Maybe it has another use and name--if you know, please leave me a comment! Of course, you know I'm going to repurpose it anyway...

I found a pair of these gingham chair aprons at Goodwill for .99 each. I like the warm color for fall and the tiny print, too.

I've always loved the 1960s Stetson Marcrest Swiss Chalet pattern. AVAILABLE HERE!

I have an idea for these tiny wire pumpkins--stay tuned!

Last but not least, this Westbend spun aluminum covered cake plate features an acorn knob and design on the lid.

It shows some vintage wear, but it's still a fun find. AVAILABLE HERE!

  1. If your display rack is as tall as it looks, it might be more of a quilt display rack. Those pumpkins are adorable, would make great napkin rings!

  2. How about using that magazine rack as a herb drying rack?? :-)

  3. a magic eraser would work magic on that cake plate.

  4. We used to have a magazine rack like that at a library I worked at in the early 70s. The little pumpkins are placard holders for use at a table.

  5. Love your finds; never heard the term "chair apron" before; love it! I think that magazine rack would be great for vintage hankies or towels--mabe even hung upside down to use the top as a shelf! I agree that a magic eraser would work wonders on that aluminum cake plate cover! Love that acorn!

  6. The acorn on the top of the cake cover is so cute! I love the chair covers, and I once had a rack like that...and used it for magazines!

  7. I always enjoy seeing what you have found:) Wish I lived close to you...I'd love to going treasure-hunting with you!
