I have been looking forward to the annual Route 90 garage sales for at least a month now. It is 50 miles of garage sales from the village of Homer(5 minutes from my house) to Montezuma. I never make it more than 1 of the 50 miles, before I am A. to tired and B. broke. You may remember some of my finds from last year.
You can read more about it here.
Well this year did not disappoint. My husbands class reunion was the night before so I did not get up as early as I wanted. We arrived at the start at 8:05 am. Already by this point there was no place to park, so we drove up about half way and parked on a side street. This actually worked to our advantage. We were able to stop half way through and drop stuff off. Next year I am bringing a cart!
Well here are my finds! Get ready because this is a long post.
Vintage Thermos with the glass liner still intact.
This quilt has some damage but it was $3.00. Yes just THREE!
This one which has “From Mother 1932” embroidered on it is slightly more damaged but it was only $2.00…Yes just TWO! I am now doing my happy dance!
More vintage linens for my
addiction stash. This whole pile (113 pieces) was $7.00.
Vintage sheet music. This is going to make it’s way into my Etsy shop.
My daughter found me this great heavy tray in a free box!
This box for a dollar.
Filled with vintage cards from the thirties through the fifties.
Love this….for only .50 cents.
Love this too, but it was $2.00. A little more than I like to spend, but it reminded me of a nautical look and so much cheaper than retail.
A 1924 and a 1932 National Geographic.
This milk glass basket was such a steal at $3.00. The glasses were .50 cents each.
This was not a steal, I don’t think. It is an old milk bottle holder and was $5.00.
I thought that this would make good jar filler……for only a quarter.
MORE DISHES! I was going to put these in my Etsy shop, but my daughter loves them.
This is for my little girl.
These sweet little cards have never been used. They will also be making their way to my shop.
I love this little talcum powder tin.
This is hand painted milk glass. Does anyone know anything about this?
Cute vintage purse with matching change purse.
I got another one too, but used it today.
Four bags of stamps. I thought these would be neat in altered art.
Buttons in a neat old container and an old crayon box. Can’t resist me a cute old box!
Finally for $1.00 I got all these vintage cake decorating things. Aren’t the crowns cute? So there you have it my weekend in a nutshell. I hope you stayed till the end and were not to bored. If so I would love for you to leave me a comment. Thanks have a great week!
