Catch up on the latest vintage estate finds from a small sale the weekend before Christmas, and yes, I’m behind on showing recent hauls. There have been a few even though I’m not going to many due to having a lot on hand. But who can resist when it’s close to home (and sometimes I just gotta have an estate or yard sale fix)!? I was disappointed it was the 2nd day, and it was very picked over, but I still found a few items.
A Kid’s Band set of percussion instruments…toys, but educational and fun. (Paid $5/Sold $22-25)
Before Christmas I sold a similar set on Etsy….and THIS sold very quickly!
I berated myself for buying it because of all the missing pieces…no striker for the triangle, missing key on xylophone, missing cymbal.
What in the heck are these long red wooden rods?
And these hardwood roller things?
This is an interesting pair~
Hubby says “those are sandpaper blocks.” And yes, they look exactly like that, but with the red knobs, they match the set. I believe these are percussion thingies. Imagine rubbing 2 sandpaper blocks together for a neat sound.
I also found this OLD pair of oil lamps…I haven’t had a chance to clean them up yet. The glass bowls are quite unusual. I’ve never seen any this decorative. I might keep them for a while. I’m trying to think of a repurpose project for them. Any ideas? (paid $4 for both)
A small brass cannon~SOLD (paid $2/Sold $16)
and a set of 6 Stovetop Covers~not really vintage but pretty. (paid $2)
All these will be going to my Etsy shop~http://vintagesouthernpicks.etsy.com
TIP: When I’m on the hunt for stuff to sell online, I tend to look for smaller items, due to ever-increasing shipping costs.
Hope you enjoyed the latest vintage estate finds! I’ll continue sharing amounts I paid and sold if you find this as interesting as I do! Until next time~
