A few Gurley candles, a blow mold light up Santa, a spaghetti Santa, and a cute old tree skirt that's the perfect size for my 4' aluminum tree. All the pieces to the Yahtzee game are still in the original packaging. I bought it for the cute box.
Next to sales that are in barns, my absolute favorite sales to go to are the ones in manufactured home parks for 55+. Those old ladies always have the coolest kitchen stuff. They never get rid of anything. I hope for the sake of my kids I'm not like that. This sale was one of the ones that popped up on Craigslist while I was out at other sales on Friday so I was one of the first people there. The daughters of the lady who was moving just wanted to get rid of stuff. They weren't looking to make a fortune. The prices were CRAZY. There was a vintage Sunbeam mixer complete with the Glasbake bowls, extra beaters, and cookbook for $2.00. There was a nice old man there and he was so tickled to find it that I didn't even try to get to it first. He said he was going home to make muffins for his wife. How cute is that? I got everything for $1.50. I told you the prices were great! They didn't even look at what I got. Just shot out the price. My favorite thing is the dustpan. My Grandma Gloria had a yellow one just like it when I was growing up.
When I went to purchase this old Burg scale, the lady asked me what in the world I would want such an old thing? She said it was accurate but in such bad shape that she put the $1.00 price tag on it hoping that someone would take it just because it was so cheap. I told her I loved it just the way it was. She told me I was crazy, took my dollar, and walked away. Take a good look at this scale, readers. This is the before shot. My husband, Rattlecan Randy (his name is really Brian but he likes to call himself this) is going to spray paint it for me. Not sure of colors yet. Any suggestions?
At the last sale, I got this 1 quart brown Pyrex casserole. Definitely not my favorite color but who in the ?#%&? can pass up perfect Pyrex for a quarter? I love old cookbooks and pie so this book was a no brainer for me. Finally, my FAVORITE find from my estate sale hunts? The PERFECT Samsonite Tourister train case. Can anyone guess why I bought it? Could it be the Bee-U-Tee-Ful shade of turquoise? Oh readers, you know me so well.
That's all for now. Hope everyone has a great, thrifty week!
