Another Saturday, another yard sale day I weeded them out around town and went to only a few, I didn't get anything big but I like what I did bring home!
It was a repeat sale at one of the homes, relatives were cleaning out an older lady's home - I picked up a few little things there last week, they had some different things out yesterday - including tubs of Wilton cake pans, what a haul that would be for someone interested in that kind of thing. The owner of these pans apparently made beautiful cakes, gave decorating lessons, she had tons of decorations - so much stuff!!
This St. Patrick's stuff was bagged together - all made in Japan or Hong Kong, I took the bag that held these goodies..
I didn't need that bag but I did need this....
My first non Christmas knee hugger - he's just too cute!!
I bought a Halloween bag too -
If I had not been following Magpie Ethel written by Laurie, the collector of so many neat things, I probably wouldn't have even given these things a second glance - I had to buy them.
These were still sealed in a old package. These made me remember a birthday cake my Mom made for me that had ballerinas on it, I thought I had a picture but I can't seem to find it.
I couldn't leave these behind - if they're the Beatles, I didn't put Ringo behind the drums!
I really had no business buying the beads and earrings set, I already have two that Mom had, but I did and the little owl pin, just because I liked it!!
The lady looked in my bag, she said $3 for everything, then asked if it was too much - I don't think so!!! Not for sweet treasures like that!!
I moved on to another sale where I bought these two fridgies which have seen better days, I might use them for flowers - $1 for the two.
The next sale had quite a bit of stuff - I have never seen so many old jars in one place, well, except in an antique shop and selling for high prices, I got the jars and the books for $1. Crown jars - made in Canada - a nice find!!
That would be more vintage Christmas books for those future grandchildren, they're going to have such a Christmas library!!! I picked up the nursery rhyme book to use for SMASHing.
For some reason, I just have to buy these older cards when I see them lately - the graphics are so cute and don't you love all their names?
