Homewood is a charming old suburb close to town and mostly occupied by young families. This was a good sale, in that it was an older person’s estate. If only I had gotten there a little earlier, but I haven’t figured out yet how to be everywhere at once…LOL.

Vintage Finds~

 

Here are my vintage finds, some of which I’ve already sold. Small and pretty little chest with raised swirl designs and old picture on top. Nice lining inside. Probably made in Italy. Cost: $2.00 Sold

These old wooden thread spools come in handy for various crafts. $1 for the whole box. How would YOU repurpose these?

These are not in the best of shape, so I’m thinking about repurposing them….maybe painting or possibly making ornaments out of them. We’ll see. $2 for this set. Too much considering the shape they’re in. Sometimes I get carried away. Anyone else?

Tiny pink pom pom trim for a total of 23+ yards. I thought I might have a hard time selling this because I certainly wasn’t the only seller with it! Paid $1…Sold for $12. I usually try to pick up trims when I see them. They can be good sellers.

As an experienced online seller for 19 years, I've just begun to reveal some of my selling secrets. In my Vintage Finds posts, I show what I buy for resale, and sell for. Because many items are vintage and need TLC, I show these DIY's, and how I refurbish to sell. I love picking, junking, thrifting, and shabby chic style.

  1. Great finds! I saw a wreath once that was made out of old thread spools. I would make that if I were ever lucky enough to find a box full. 🙂

  2. I’m so cursing our South African postal services right now, I would love to take those finials off of your hands. Anyways, such is life. I hope you had a super Memorial Day weekend Florence.

  3. Florence you have a treasure trove here. And at such great prices. The one time I went to an estate sale I felt I was being robbed. I’ll have to look harder in the future. These finds are really great and there is so much someone can do with them.

    1. Thank you Mary! I’ve been to estate sales in other parts of the US & felt the same way you do about prices. Some places are higher than others.

  4. Florence, great finds at great prices! I think we’ve all gotten carried away at sales and when we got home realized we paid a little more than we wanted for something or didn’t realize the shape it was in, but I think that was a pretty good deal on the aluminum coasters; I could see someone buying those to decorate in a home with rustic or country decor or like you said hanging them as ornaments. I really like those finials, they are calling for a repurpose for sure, hmmm but what? Maybe some cute ornaments or knobs on a coat rack… they are really cool! Great finds Florence!!
