Had an awesome garage sale day yesterday. It was lots of fun.
Oldest daughter and I started out at about 8:30 in the morning... the first sale was right down the road from my house..and was an Estate Sale..where I managed to find a darling set of vintage rooster salt and pepper shakers from about the 1950's.I could not pass them up for only $1.50!
I also managed to acquire an entire box full of vintage tea cup related china/sugar bowls and tea cup sets. Some I will keep for myself, but some I will re sell in my etsy shop as either floral arrangements/topiaries or as they are.
I also found a set of 4 vintage napkins at another sale...shown with the teacup items here below
I was so absolutely delighted to find thse awesome vintage fashion plates..they are originals mounted in frames. They each date 1862!!!I snagged them at only $3 each! They are staying here with me..ha. but look what else I found at the same sale for just 50 cents!!!! oh be still my beatin'heart!
A lovely vintage print dated 1907.
Then I found this darling cat vase and madelaine pan at another sale.
Then..at the last 2 sales I found a pair of vintage hankies..one from Belgium and another white on white version. ($1.50 for both
And the last item of the day was..this darling pair of miniature prints in frames dating 1933I snagged them for just $1.
Now..with all of the delightful vintage finds that I snagged..I just need to find someone to help me decorate my home with them all...ha.
It was such a fun day and I am delighted with my finds.
I encourage you to give garage saling/yard saling a try. It's lots of fun and you just never know what you can find for a "steal of a deal"!
