Vintage Finds

Here are some vintage goods I found at the thrift stores the past few weeks.

I love this owl I don't know if he was originally a cookie jar or not. He does hold utensils well, though.

Vintage Fire King cups.

I sold the flower cups for $9.99. Purchased both for a $1.00.

I sold the pear one for $14.50. Paid 75 cents.

I love this eagle. He was $2.00. I may paint him white and keep or sell, don't know yet!

Last but not least, my favorite find was this Butterfly Gold loaf pan!!

Wishing you good treasure finds!

Rummage Sale Finds

This past weekend, another rummage sale was going on! YEAH! You filled a plastic bag for $5.00. I ended up buying 4 bags and one other item.

There was rows and rows of boxes! First I found some plastic teacup toy set, then I found a box filled with Geo Trax. Of course this would be worth it to just fill a bag with these. I was filling my bag, being careful because I didn't want it to bust. Then this lady comes along, and starts taking the trains out. REALLY? I thought that was rude! If someone was getting something from a box, I would wait or ask. SO, at that point I was also just looking for the trains! She eventually left after she commmented, I guess there's no more trains! Okay well, whatever, now I can finish getting the tracks. Here are some completeds on ebay for the Geo Trax.

I also found some vintage Tupperware Tuppertoy stencils. I knew these were good so I grabbed them because I have sold them before. Here are some completed listings.

I also found a box with some CD's. I was going though them and guess who shows up again? Yes, Mrs. Geo Trax Train lady. UUGGHHH...I just grabbed a few I had set aside and moved on. Didn't feel like dealing with her again!

The best buy was this blow up Christmas Nativity. We have wanted one forever but they are expensive, and we always say next year, or what till Christmas is over. This was $5.00, and it works!

I probably could have stayed all day, and found more good stuff, but Mr. Goodjunks and Little Sweetpea had enough treasure hunting. Here's all my junk, I can't believe this was all in 4 bags!!

Have a good day!

Rummage Sale Finds

This past weekend Mr. Goodjunks and I went to a rummage sale, I have been there before and can usually find something worthwhile. My total for everything was $6.00.
I found this frame and old cookbooks

This sweet vintage Strawberry Shortcake Sheet

Mr. Goodjunks found this Better Homes and Gardens Handyman book

Did you know if you don't hang your garden hose, it should be stored in a figure eight? I love the cans as a hose holder. They would be great storage for other garden items as well.

I'm sure you enjoyed all my rummage scores, but here is the best part! The bulk of my $6.00 was $2.50 for this metal headboard.

Isn't she lovely? For now she is behind the roses. I saw a cute idea on Pinterest where someone attached some clay pots to the headboard. That is a possibility!

Have a great day!
