These mostly estate sale finds are from over the last month or two.
I swore off yard sales because they’re mostly either ~
Kids’ toys (where the kids aren’t through playing with them 😀 and practically push you away if you dare to touch)
PURE junky junk…and I don’t mean the good kind. 😉
But I broke down and went to a few yard sales a couple of weekends ago (reminding myself again that nothing good can be found there).
Not all yard sales are bad~
FREE Dog Treats!
And our Leo loves his treats!
And next best he loves his toys…so he can TOTALLY kill them.
50¢ each on these. But they won’t last long.
I’m Going to Keep These~
I almost hate it when I find stuff I plan to keep…at least for a while…like these:
(Maybe I’ll get around to watching these DVD’s).
$2/ea, so I spent $12 on DVDs…not good, when you’re a reseller, and don’t keep anything.
When I noticed they were $2/ea, I found a good many I could live without…like the Rockettes Christmas Show, which I’ve already seen in person, and on youtube.
And what are the chances of finding 2 almost identical vintage parrot pillows in 2 different places??
I kinda liked these…
$2 for this pillow
And 50¢ for a Parrot pillow cover. I couldn’t resist.
Do I have a parrot? No.
Have I ever had a parrot? No.
So on to the stuff I plan to sell…
I never turn down a Vintage Mirror Tray. I found this the last day at an estate sale. I don’t know why it was still there.
I usually buy fabric if it’s cheap and cute. It has to meet both those requirements for me to buy.
Cost for all 3: 50¢
Dahling, I can’t even remembah when I got my hot little hands on a vintage corset!! (SOLD)
And it was still there the last day!!
I also never turn down a vintage Hollywood Regency tissue box cover.
Sh-h, now don’t tell anyone. At the last 2 estate sales, on the last day, these vintage tissue box covers were the only thing left in the bathroom.
At the next place, the whole house was totally cleaned OUT, and this was the only thing left in the bathroom.
And I grabbed it.
And they were going to charge me a dollar for this on the last day?
So here’s a brass mouse figurine with a curly tail. So cute. But I’m finding that figurines just don’t sell very well.
Because a lot of the buying public are young women who don’t want something to dust. They’re minimalists now.
So why did I buy a brass mouse with a curly tail? He was just so darn cute. But I might be stuck with him.
I don’t want something to dust either.
Same goes for these lovely figurines. But they were such a great bargain.
I found these on the last day at an estate sale where a guy was serious about getting rid of everything. The next 3 things came from that sale.
This is called “Flight into Egypt” and by Goebel, West Germany. Perfect condition.
$2.50 for both of these.
And he threw this in…a music box (broken piece on the back), but I’ve sold broken and cracked, repaired, and less than perfect.
A genuine Hummel Joseph from 1951 in perfect condition & sold.
I couldn’t resist these plastic plate holders. They’re kind of funky, and would look great on a wall for a boho look.
And I may have let my heart rule over my head here. I love these Victorian-ish (or maybe they’re 1920’s) hat pin holders! I’ve always wanted one…to sell not to keep. I found them in an attic.
I’m definitely embarrassed to tell you what I paid for these.
Cost: $10 (ugh yes).
After my head cleared, I wondered if the young-woman-buying-public is gonna want hat pin holders?
What do you think?
Here’s another fun find. My hubby really doesn’t want me to sell this, but he doesn’t need it.
A vintage winding travel alarm clock…very nice quality.
And lastly, a vintage Chatty Cathy red coat and headband.
The 50¢ is tax at the estate sale. Are you having to pay tax at estate sales now? I’m not happy about that at all. Bummer.
Hope you enjoyed the latest fun finds! I have more to show you and updates on sales will be in an upcoming post.
