On Friday I was on my way to the grocery store and saw a couple of yard sale signs, I pulled in and came away with some neat things. Yesterday I knew I shouldn't have gone out to the yard sales, because I just had a feeling they would be bad and I should be satisfied with what I found on Friday, I was right, most sales I drove by and didn't even get out. I did park right at the front of one, left the keys in the ignition, it took me a whole minute maybe to look at the goods, went back to the car and the doors were locked. How stupid was I? The window was down some, I was able to get my arm in but not far enough to get the lock, a young guy running the yard sale got it open on the first try with a hanger. I went home after that!!
Anyway, on to Friday - I found Shiny Brites at both sales that I went to, $2 for each box, there are made in USA ones and also a few from Poland, I've found some of those before, they are larger and so pretty. I'm hoping this year I'll have enough to make a Shiny Brite wreath - my collection is growing!
There was a little bit of everything - indents, satins, plastics and one poor little bird. He had a tail when he came home but that seems to have gone missing, he's not in very good shape.
This is my first Shiny Brite tree topper that I've ever found and in the box - it was included in the price of the decorations, $2. The original price is stamped on the side, 39 cents!
This is a cute pumpkin blow mold that would go anywhere...
I never look at plastics at yard sales but this Tupperware cereal container was sticking out of a box, it looks like it was never used. Mom used to have one of these, maybe it's still there, I wouldn't mind having another one, I put oatmeal in it, what a great container!! I used to have Tupperware years ago but this might be the only piece I have now!
I found some nice things on Friday, I really should have been satisfied and not gone out yesterday at all!
I try to respond to every comment, I appreciate every one, but for the bloggers out there that are no reply bloggers, I'd like to respond but because of your setting, I can't - I'm not ignoring you!!! It's an easy fix if you choose to go that way.
