Yard sales in this town are so bad, I think I might be done, I always think that there might be something good out there - but there never is, a couple of weeks ago I got my cake carrier and a few other things at one sale, but I'm thinking that might be it for the year - last summer my big find was a blender! So, I went further down the road -at one sale a couple were getting rid of a relatives stuff, another was a guy that will be set up every weekend - he said his house is full - I asked for Christmas, he says he thinks he has some in the basement, so I'll be going back there for sure!
I spotted some shiny brites in this box - it was $2 for this huge box so I took it, the guy even carried it to the car - guess he was that glad to get rid of it! There was another box too, for free - I left it there! Most of this box is now in the trunk of my car, going to be donated - the majority of it I didn't want, but I did find a few treasures... It was a huge box for $2.
Here's everything I kept - from the two sales...
This is a softer plastic than a regular blow mold, there were two in the box, I don't need two, if anyone out there wants it, it's yours, for free, just pay the postage, which can be done through Paypal. I've never seen one like this before, it works just fine.
In the box were a couple of boxes with ornaments, there were a few good ones, maybe I'll be able to make a shiny brite Christmas wreath this year! I was interested in the box because when I hit the mother load of shiny brites last year, there were a few made in Poland ones, now I have the boxes for them. That was one of my best finds EVER, if you missed it, here it is.
I thought this was a pretty decoration
I'll probably be picking the arrangement apart - these were some of the better decorations, I don't have a Santa like that!
I was happy to open this box, it's lights for a ceramic Christmas tree, my tree doesn't have all the lights, this year it will!
Finally, I have a vintage Christmas tablecloth!
How cute are these place cards?
There were a few packages of tags, mostly just ordinary except for this - they are 3D, click on so you can see that knee hugger, it's the sweetest thing!!!
A stack of 60's and 70's Woman's Day and Good Housekeeping magazines
Lots of neat old ads for SMASHing!
It was the inside caption that took my eye on this...
I wonder if Ruth was the next to marry? Click on it to read the note.
This is pretty old - we haven't tried it yet - I checked it out - it appears that different moving companies offered this type of puzzle..
I have a few of these old crocks from home but none this size, which would be great for flowers.
A couple of small juice glasses to end it off.
It was worthwhile to drive a bit down the road, I really think I might be giving up on the in town yard sales!!
