Fifty Miles of Garage Sales! A Great Weekend!

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.

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.

Love this….for only .50 cents.

Route 90 sales july 30 2011 025

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.

  4. Can I just say WOW!!! You found some absolutely wonderful things. I have thought about doing an Etsy shop as I continue to find more and more cool stuff, but I don't know if I could part with any of it.

    I, of course, love those Scotties! And the hankies, and the quilts and the sewing stuff, and the linens, and the stamps, and the dishes...Well, you get the idea. Love it ALL! I tried my best not to turn green when I read your post. :)
