To look at my garage sale finds of the week?
This is my favorite find. A 1950s alarm clock
("It still ticks when you wind it up and had a rather "ALARMING" ring.) I will admit I spent a little more on this item than usual.
The clock cost me $10.
Real shell compact / trinket box 0.25 cents.
( I looked them up on Etsy and the cheapest was $8 most expensive $24)
Glass table lighter $2 (I have a weakness for these, this one is my third)
"Uh-oh they say once you have three you have a collection"
Pink flower bangle 0.50 cents
Mouse pad & coasters $1 (I have not bought a new mouse pad in I don't know how long. My past three have all been purchased brand new from yard sales for super cheap!
White fat lava triangle vase 0.75 cents
Plastic buck figurine 0.25 cents (He is going to drive my cute plastic doe's nuts!)
These Lavender trellis's are so cute! I just finished planting my flowers this week but didn't purchase much vines because I didn't want them crawling all over randomly. Looks like I will have to go get some now as my trellis's are lonely.
$2 for both
Vintage blue suitcase in great condition
Horseshoes $1 (I have been wanting to find some horseshoes since the beginning of last year garage sale season. FINALLY my patience paid off. And even though the Mr. and I had a LONG day.. we played a game this evening. He won the score was 15 - 11.)
The Mr. bought these 6 books the dates are two 1952, 1953, two 1954s & a 1958
They are in such good condition I imagine they sat stored in a box for most of their lifetime.
$4 for all six
Do I ever NOT buy toys??
All pieces accounted for price sticker $40 we paid $5
*Says a little prayer that the future children REALLY like Mr. Potato head*
Spud Buds! Look at the corn *hahah* "I actually got embarrassed at the sale I was at when I seen this. Because the seller was sitting where I could not see her, so I thought they were just inside the house....
I spotted the Spud buds and was like " OMG THERE IS A CORN AND A CARROT... look (To the Mr.) They are Mr. Potato's friends...." I then heard a giggle and finally noticed the seller in her chair laughing at my excitement. So I said "As you can tell I love toys!" And she said "That's okay so do I"
I then said "I don't even have kids yet... when I do I will probably be fighting with them over toys" She also confessed she didn't have kids either... "WOOHOO I am not so strange.." Okay maybe I am!
We stopped at a thrift shop after garage saling. I spotted Hamtaro ... I could NOT leave him behind. Not with those eyes!
Japanese cartoons have the cutest characters.
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.
