Woohoo! I was so excited to get back to my Friday yard sale shopping this morning after about 3 weeks of not being able to go. And boy did I have a great day. Here's an overview of everything I got.
Total spent was $30.50.
A great wooden toolbox for $2.
I love all the little cubbies and holders. I plan to fix it up a bit and add it to the shop.
Radio Flyer 4 wheeled scooter/bike - $3.50
My kids are having fun with it right now, but eventually it'll be destined for the shop.
2 hanging buckets - $1.
I bought these to keep. I've been wanting some of these for a long time to put plants in and hang over the rungs of my old ladder, but I've never been able to find any.
Vintage portable filing box - .25 (shop)
Popcorn popper - .50 (keeping)
Coffee percolator - .25 (shop)
Pair of vintage Italian frames - $1 (shop)
Large activity/play rug - $1
I've been wanting one of these for my lil' guy for awhile now, but was reluctant to pay $40 for it. Now I'm glad I didn't.
I forgot to include this in the first picture of everything. A box of various maps found in a free box.
Large (one of the biggest I've seen) vintage suitcase - $5
This actually wasn't priced to sell. It was filled with scraps of material that were for sale and the suitcase was barely visible, but I asked if they'd be interested in selling it and they said ok. I've never seen one that opens at an angle like that, and it opens from the end, not from the front. Pretty unique.
Ok, now the above picture was all purchased from one sale...for $15.
Let's take a little closer look.
A box full of vintage baby shoes and clothing.
This box even has an original receipt from JC Penny.
Two small canning jars, 2 small ironstone platters, and a great old brush.
Some fun vintage kids books.
An old Charles Dickens book, and...I think my most exciting find of the day. An antique German, Martin Luther, Bible with the Apocrypha, dated 1838.......for .10!!!
I came home and did a bit of Ebay research and found a very similar one that sold for $235! It's not just the value that's exciting to me, it's the history that's behind it and wondering where it's been, who owned it, wondering what are the stories that go along with it.
Ok, total shift from the Bible straight to Moonshine jugs, lol! The large crock one was marked $5, and the smaller one .25.
I loved the smaller one because it has a corn cob stopper! How neat is that?
And last but not least, from the same sale, an old shipping crate for $2.
I was VERY happy with my finds today and was practically doing a happy dance in the car. My daughter kept asking me what was wrong. : )
I hope you have a great weekend!
