Last Friday, there was only one sale that looked promising in my area. When I got there, an hour and a half early, I found that I wasn't the only person that realized this. #38 on the list! Unfortunately, there were no photos with the ad so I wasn't sure if there was anything worth waiting for. But I didn't have anyplace else to be so I waited.
They opened promptly at 9 and let the first 20 people in. You saw that I was #38 right? Torture. Absolute torture.
Eventually I made it in the door. Longest 12 minutes of my life. Yes, I was timing it.
How awesome is the shelf? It was sitting on a table directly inside the door when I walked it. It never ceases to amaze me what the dealers and resellers don't buy. This was a family run sale and the prices were dirt cheap. Case in point? This was $2. I haven't decided what I am going to display on it right now but during Christmas you can guarantee it will hold all of my vintage tape dispensers.
I have never seen these candle holders with the swimmer holder. Cute, huh?
NOS vintage sheets cheaper than the original price!
Cute and springy vintage sheet for my collection.
Funny Hunter's Crying Towel. I love the bottom graphic with the naked lady that says "I distinctly heard you say - let's go hunting bare!".
Not my usual pink and aqua but for $1 each, I'll take them!
I think that even I am capable of stuffing this old flour stack and making a pillow.
Just in time for Summer, this amazing Thermos! And now I have three of these pretty quilted jars with the pink floral lids. Another official collection!
Old maps out of the free box. Love the Idaho one. My grandpa was in the Navy so it reminds me of him.
A new Josef girl. She's October and surprisingly, Maddie didn't already have her. My aunt was at the sale too and picked up this spaghetti Christmas girl for Maddie as well. She got in to the sale way before me and it was super sweet that she thought of her.
I love the aqua color of this California pottery planter. And I finally got myself my own white deer! The last one I found I had to give to Hanna of course.
Love the graphics on the covers of these old cookbooks. Also love the quarter apiece price.
One of the cookbooks had some old handwritten recipes as well as newspaper cutouts with recipes from 1956. Meatloaf frosting anyone?
I have zero business buying anymore vintage Christmas ornaments. I am up to my ears in Shiny Brites. They have literally taken over my shed.
All of this goodness from one sale! I guess it's a good thing that there was only one to go to.
Linking up with We Call it Junkin' for History and Home and Sir Thrift-A-Lot for Thriftasaurus.
Have a great day!
