Don't see why I can't show you some things I might have picked up at a sale today *Cough*
An old BINGO set with the ever elusive orange and black bingo numbers that I love to use in Halloween crafts. 50¢
Old Cat in the Hat Dictionary in pretty awful shape but it was only 50¢.
The pages are still in good shape. I think some of them might be nice framed.
This box said it was a Duets Girl's Diaper Set, so I picked it up since it was vintage.
But, when I got it home, it had these great old plastic tracing stencils in it. They are big - about 8" tall or so plus there is a slew of smaller ones too. I love that jaunty little piggy with his basket and the dog on a ball.
Plucked this sweet little handmade jacket, hat and bootie set from the kid's clothing rack for $1.00. It is just adorable. Excuse my lovely photo on top of the truck hood. I was so hot I was about to croak when we got home, so I took these photos as fast as I could so I could hit the A/C.
I love using old Bushel Baskets for display and this one not only had its lid, but it also had a half bushel basket nestled inside it. $1.50 for both. These have nice bright colors.
I found a box full of baggies full of old spools of Sateen ribbon, so I just bought them all.
Twenty three rolls in all for around $3.00.
I thought this big scale had a nice industrial vibe too it, so I picked it up for 5.00. I did a little research and it is actually from a restaurant for weighing out portions on a plate. I found one online for $95.00, so I guess I did okay. Not sure what I will do with it - probably to the Barn Sale first.
Love this giant old pricing stamp. It's about 10" tall and really heavy. $1.00.
Small glass baby bottle and a wee tin heart mold. 25¢ each.
And now, for THE FIND OF THE DAY.........A really old worn croquet set has been on my wishlist for a long, long time. I have a really nice teak set, but I want an old set just to put on the porch and maybe knock around in the yard.
It's missing one of the striped colored poles, but I know you will be shocked to hear that I already have one. I love the old metal wheels and the chippy mallets and balls. This set, along with a second set, had sold to another person and when I commented how much I wanted to find a set just like that, the guy quoted me a price of $12.00 and I bought them. Never done that before! $12.00 is probably more than I actually would have spent, but I still think it's a good deal. And, it was the perfect souvenir to remember my day at the great big HUGE.........oh, wait, never mind.
