I found three sales on one street. I parked at the end of the block and walked the block up to the cul-de-sac and back. Of course, since I had so far to walk and it was a thousand degrees, I found a lot of good stuff at the sale the farthest away.
All the loot. I only had smalls until the slat sale of the day where I bought the small milking stool, the tall old metal stool and the rusty thing in the center.
My first purchase of the day (at the end of the cul-de-sac) was this picnic basket. It's beginning to be a sickness, I tell you, me and these picnic baskets. I sat in the living room and counted how many picnic baskets I could see. Would you believe I could see a total of 15 picnic baskets between the living room and kitchen? Crazy, huh? Also pictured is a really nice and very old letter box, two Enesco Swan planters, one lonely signed Quilt Block (a lady had already bought the rest - &^%#% - but missed this one) and a single Cow Salt Shaker.
Loved this old milking stool - not sure how anyone could actually sit on it and maintain any sort of balance or dignity.
I don't even know what this old metal chippy things is or was, but it was cool looking and only $1.00, so I snagged it. I will throw it in the booth and see what happens.
A sweet little creamer, vintage Arkansas Razorback pocket hankies (I do really well selling vintage Razorback items), a lovely cherry plate and a nice book of Native American Art.
I love old games and especially old word games. I've never seen this game - love the unusual letter cards and the fun puppy/cat graphic.
Vintage box of Crayons, two old rusty stars and two fun old chalk rabbits.
I must have had the Breadman on my mind when I grabbed these. Ha. The box at the bottom is 1000 cellophane frill picks. Did I need 1,000 of those? Well, no, but for 50¢, I had to grab them.
Lastly, all these vintage bags of weaving loom loops headed for my Etsy Store.
Unless we decide to get crafty and sell these instead....
Yea, probably not.
Hope you find some good junk this weekend. I think I'll be taking tomorrow off , but there are two big fundraiser sales side by side up the street and I have zero willpower. The darn heat just about wipes me out. But those bargains call to me.....Shara....Shara....Shara......
