Yard Sales Were Not Good!

The first Saturday for yard sales and I spent a whopping 50 cents and got two things for  free.    I sure hope things pick up.

These cocktail forks were 25 cents, there's one missing but they look they like were never used..

I'm on the lookout now for Sesame Street items - Holly from  Life on the Rock  collects vintage Sesame Street and a whole lot more - check out her latest finds here.  I paid 25 cents for these four books.

This is one of my free items - my husband likes rulers, this little box has one divider missing, but I thought he could use it for some sort of storage or even as an idea to make one himself.

A free 1983 Family Circle

Everything else I bought last week while out thrifting.  I paid $1 for all the books

I am hopeful this French version of the Canadian Purity cookbook will sell, I have it in English, it's a classic.

Walt Disney America

Some vintage children's books.  I had forgotten all about the story of  The Gingerbread Man - that's  not a very happy story for children, the poor gingerbread gets eaten by the sly fox!

It's not Vera, it's pretty though.  I can't find anything about it online, it's  Anne  Rothschild for Hanes...

This was a great find at Value Village, a big 045 - 2 1/2 qt. casserole, no lid, $3.99.  I  knew it was probably "Golden" something,  as I have a Golden Tulip and Golden Acorn but it stands alone as "Golden".  It was a1959 promotional, I like it!!

I'm having a little draw to celebrate my one year blogiversary- I'd sure like it if you'd stop by and leave a comment or become a new follower - click here and you'll be able to enter...   I really appreciate everyone that stops by....
