Yard Sale Treasures
Do you remember these stools? I do - I remember sitting on a stool just like this and talking on the phone - I could just pull the foot rest down whenever I wanted, relax and chat with my friends! I found this great old stool on Saturday at a yard sale - the past two Saturday's its been rainy here - but by the looks of the people that were out and about - it didn't matter..
The lady told me that lard came in these containers. Her mother in law had owned them - she had a piece of masking tape on each one - one was for dates, another for raisins - that tape has been there a long time - no amount of Goo Gone will take it off. These are so cute - the colors are so bright, there's no rust inside either.
These other goodies are resting on the stool - a 403 Pyrex bowl - it's an old one - it doesn't even say 403 - that's going to my daughter - she only needs the red bowl for the complete primary set. I also got a miniature pie plate and two Termocrisa bowls - they're a great size for a small bowl of cereal. I paid $7 for those items, including the stool - the stool alone was worth way more than that!
My next sale was a huge outdoor church fundraiser - it didn't start on time because of the rain - it was well worth it for me - I got some cute things - I paid $10 for the box of goodies.
A nice pair of Forest Fancies bowls
I'm adding to my Delphite collection - I found 2 larger plates and one side plate - they were hidden away in a box.
This little fridgie is a bit weathered but the price was surely right.
I love this seafood bowl!!
You can't tell by looking at this - but this little Thermos is about 5 inches tall and it's an Avon bottle - how cute is that??? It's one of my favorite purchases from the day!
