I have been honing in on where the good stuff is, and it’s church rummage sales right now. The church ladies who may have had these items for a very long time decide it’s high time to get rid of some of this “junk” and to raise some cash for the church. They often price them at a great deal, and that allows a frugal minded gal get wonderful treasures to enjoy in her own decor!!!!
I won’t bore you with the details but instead let the photos speak for themselves…. without further ado…
Sale 1: A mini sale of the one I just missed out on at a local church. Next one is in the spring.
50’s plastic tissue box, Cornflower blue corningware tray, Spring Blossom gemco creamer (will be in shop), 50’s vinyl doll, Madame Alexander Happy Meal Doll, two celluloid angels, Lefton Mrs. Claus Salt Shaker, Mini bottle brush tree, and a stack of vintage paper decorations.
Sale 2: (Same Day)
Vintage Hanky, Stick pins, Vintage books, Blue Cornflower Corningware percolator, Vintage Hat (etsy shop), Collapsible drink cup with pill holder, vintage greeting cards (but I bought just for the box alone, the cards were a bonus) Pepsi SP shakers (Etsy Shop), mini photo album, Tupperware Condiment container, vintage wrapping paper.
Best of all this sale had a free box…. and look at what I found in there!
Those game boards are amazing, those vintage candles, also amazing, and the chatter teeth remind me of A Christmas Story when the teacher opens the drawer of toys she’s confiscated from her students. I’ll bet not many folks in today’s world know what that little maraca looking thing is. Venture to take a guess?
Sale 3: The following weekend… it was an entire Christmas Rummage Sale. Wow!
I got candle lights, vintage electric tree decor, tablecloths, an apron, ornaments, and a red vintage avon candle. I love the vintage holidays!
I went on an adventure again, so even though this is not a rummage sale haul, I want to include it here:
I absolutely love it when I come across a vintage find that is priced so well, I don’t even have to consider it. This wedding cake topper was one. Only $1, and just the right touch of shabby with it’s yellowed millinery. It was added right to my collection! That Town and Country Pyrex bowl will get listed in the etsy shop, and the cooky book is a later version of the one I already have, but I’m keeping it. Bottle brush trees and vintage snowcouple sp shakers round out that day’s finds.
I can’t wait to get out all of my Christmas Decor!!! I’m getting so excited!
