I'm back from my trip "home" to Prince Edward Island, we HAD to stay until Sunday as last weekend was the 70 Mile Yard Sale. It's a shopping frenzy, cars and people everywhere along the route, I found a few things, I don't think any item cost more than $1 - I have one regret and it is just plain stupidity on my part, I saw a turquoise Pyrex bowl, now, this was coming on the end of the day and we had been on the road since 8 - I should have looked on my phone to see the picture of what I had, I didn't even think of that, I know now that was the one bowl I needed to complete that set!!! Buyers remorse on that one!!
They were just setting up at our first stop - one item bought there and it's a cutie - the Lefton sticker is still on the bottom and it plays "Jingle Bells" - $1.
Another $1 spent on this blowmold - I saw some gigantic candy cane ones, but they were really too big - too big to drag back here and too big to store. As it is, we had to move some of our blowmolds to the attic!
The lady at this sale wanted me to take the whole box of Christmas, that would have been a complete waste, all I found were these two felt Santa's.
This little girl has lost her bell, but I don't care, these two little ornaments will look real cute on my red Christmas shelf. She was made in Japan.
I have a Tom and Jerry bowl and one cup, it's not the same as these cups, but I don't care about that either, I'll just use them for decoration anyway. These Hazel Atlas cups were 25 cents each!
That's it for Christmas purchases - onward to the rest of the things I bought. Our local grocery store when I was growing up was Lucky Dollar, I had to buy this ashtray - it's a good collectible. I bought the labels because they were local too, Fraser's Cannery was just across the water from my home and the canned chicken was so good!! We still have glasses like this at home, Schwartz mustard came in them, I have never seen one with a label, it was $1 too. Later on we saw a bigger Schwartz peanut butter glass, it was $10 - at a yard sale!!! That's not a yard sale price!!!
An old friend was having a sale - her mother used to sell Avon, she had a box of stuff left, still in the original boxes and not opened - and she had these, she gave them to me..Avon Calling....
This little bag of goodies only cost me $1 - I was taken with the little booklets. The Norcross Blue Book from 1951 - the lady that owned this was using it as a mini journal - she wrote down her household jobs - on Oct. 28, 1955 she washed the window sill, windows inside and out, complete. The Russels were for dinner, the menu consisted of - cranberry juice, mashed potatoes, carrots & peas, Swiss Steak, butterscotch rolls (which I've never heard of) and Pompadour Pudding, never heard of that one either. The mini coil booklet has trip expenses - the people were from New Jersey and drove to Florida - a few of their expenses were 21 cents for ice cream, postcards were 3 cents, $5 for overnight stay, $1 for repairs to car - it's pretty neat!
The last time I was home I passed these by at a local flea market, I sent my great aunt back for them, $2 - not bad for some vintage Fire King shakers, I had these on Instagram and somebody suggested using them for mini vases - great idea!
