Well I was
going through withdrawal showing restraint and not going to any very many garage sales. Well I blew that out of the water this weekend.
Yesterday was the first of two days of 50 miles of yard sales along route 90 from Homer NY, which is less than five miles from my house, to Montezuma.
Well I woke up early was as quiet as a church mouse and
snuck out left before anyone else woke up. I hit the bank first and took out $40.
I stopped at one sale a couple of blocks from the start of the big one at picked up two pillow shams for $1.00
When I got to the start at 7:50, there were already tons of people and no place to park. So I went up the street and cut down a side street. Lots of parking there so I then
ran walked back to the beginning and started at an outdoor rummage sale being held by the Methodist church that is on the corner. So glad that I did!!!
They were so pleasant and happy to help, even though they hadn't finished setting up yet. Nothing was priced but I made a pile of stuff after I asked how much a set of dishes was and she said$1.00.
Well I got all this.....
In there, there is:
jewelry, which came in this great vintage box.
A Nantucket bread pan that I am going to bake some bread in and give it as a gift at Christmas time.
Two shadow box shelves for my girls room.
A vintage ruler.
Three hardcover books for my second daughter.
A 12 volume set of vintage children's books printed in 1937. I just love the illustrations.
I also picked up this, it is the parents book that goes with the set.
A few vintage linens.
This dish, even though it has a large repair I love it. here is a picture of the back.
Havilland, France Jan 18-1901
This little tin filled with:
Two vintage hats, the brown on the black hat is tissue paper that was used to keep the netting proofed.
Two vintage pillows.
And here is the dishes that started it all. A set of service for four.
Two white ironstone
And this flowered plate.
I also got this great vintage locker basket.
Then I moved on up the street. I picked up this soup tureen for $1.00.
A Tommy Hilfiger purse for another $1.00.
A Coach Hat for my daughter that was $3.00.
This great bar set for $4.00.
While I was waiting for my change, I noticed this:
It was only....$2.00. It was so heavy though I had to leave it there and come back to pick it up. When I got back the seller said that there had been a lot of people that were mad that it had already sold and that I got a great deal on it. I knew that already though. There are a mix of shoppers and sellers on the route. Some are regular people and some are dealers on both sides. There are lots of people that come in from out of state too.
I got this box with the earrings for $2.00.
I spent $2.65 for all this.
These planters were $2.00 for the pair.
And then at my last stop that totally broke the bank and sent me to the ATM. I got:
This is from 1945
Bag of trim.
All these were in a baggie for $2.00. The total for all this was $16.75. Then I went to the ATM so I could come back and get this:
Thirty two vintage photos for $15.00.
Here are a few of my favorites up close.
I had so much fun and to think that i almost missed it this year. I forgot that it is always the fourth week of July and had not seen it advertised this year. Luckily I over heard someone talking about it on Friday when I went out to a couple of sales. This is already an insanely long post so I will show my bounty from those sales tomorrow.
