Who Wants A Perm?

Today was kind of a sad day.  I went to one lonely garage sale where I spent more time talking to the sweet little old lady giving it than I did actually looking at her stuff.  It was super rainy here today so there were not a lot of people out hitting the sales.  She didn't have anything I was interested but I felt bad not buying anything!  She was so sweet and I think maybe a little lonely.  So I grabbed this cute tin.
I thought with the red and green colors I could incorporate it into my Christmas decorations.  Plus it was only 50 cents.
It was full of home perm supplies.  I tried to give them back to her but she told me "Take them.  They are vintage and maybe you can sell them!". Uh, ok.
So if anyone out there is feeling a little crafty and can think of a way to use all of these vintage perm supplies or if you just want to give yourself a perm, leave me a comment and I will send them to you.  Otherwise they will end up in my garage sale pile for next Summer. 

Until next time...

Linking up with
Pink Saturday


  1. They may not be worth much money wise, but seeing those really brought back memories of when I lived at home with my mom and dad before they passed away and my sister would give us all perms....those were really the good days.....thanks for the priceless memory!

  2. The hair curlers reminds me of my Aunt.

    My PINK is also a giveaway so come and check it out, you might want to join. Have a great weekend.

  3. Sweet of you to buy it! But NO, no perm for me. My last perm was over 20 years ago and it made me look like Bozo the clown! Happy Pink Saturday. ~Marti

  4. I love those curlers.

    Come and link up at my Coolor Connectio meme through my PINK entry. Hope you join the fun!

  5. Well... I do love the tin. That was worth it. Plus you got to talk to a sweet little old lady. :)


  6. I can just smell the curling solution already! And hear the crinkly papers! They really are a cute pink and would be cute displayed in a jar in a ladies "powder room". ☺

  7. I have had many a perm using these type things. In fact, I am getting one this coming Wednesday, but not in this fashion.

  8. One of my favorite parts of these sales is actually talking to the sweet older folks and hearing their stories. Sometimes they are as interesting as the stuff you find :)



  9. I don't see those curlers anymore these days.

    Healthy Pink Snacks
    Have an enjoyable Pink Saturday!
