This was the sign for our first sale today. It was only 5 minutes from our house so we decided to get some breakfast first and then we came here.
The sign said to go to the back and we did. Our first stop was our best stop and we found some great items here!
This was where the second sale was and it was also in our town. Yes, there was a line but it moved quickly. We picked up a few fun items here.
Rob always checks out the bar area for vintage bar items. He already knew he was getting what he had in his hand!
Our first outdoor sale of 2013! A sure sign of Spring! We picked up a few records from the 1980's and a great 7 inch record holder! This was the last of the decent sales for the day. We went to two more sales and they were horrible. Nothing that interested us at all and both were run by the homeowners (moving sales that advertised 50 + years of accumulation but we found no evidence at that at all). Plus, there was no one else at either of these sales when we arrived and the homeowners followed us around to everywhere we looked. Uncomfortable!
Some of the items we got today:We found some great holiday items. The snow people and the turkeys are salt and pepper shakers made in Japan
We found some cool old records, Both the Fred Astaire Cha-Cha record and the Jack LaLanne had instructions inside to go along with the records!
A cool Tiki mug from Orchids of Hawaii and old 7 inch record holder, an elephant planter made in Japan and more. The plastic containers in the front are old pink and turquoise capped bobby pin holders. Monica got 15 of these plus the old hair clips with fake diamonds.
An old vintage tablecloth
Some old books. Actually, the one in the center is just an old book cover It advocates the building of bomb shelters in case of atomic warfare!
Books and booklets on throwing successful parties! The one on the right is fun and festive place settings for parties that you need to punch out of the cardboard.
An old pencil sharpener. We had to have this because, well, it seemed that EVERYONE in the 1950's and 1960's had these pencil sharpeners mounted to a wall in their basement. WE had them in our basements when we were growing up as did our grandparents!!! When we buy our new house, this will be mounted in the basement! It says "State Of New York" on the sharpener.
