I’m so glad that there are some tag sales popping up again. The weather was beautiful last weekend and being able to go to a few sales was great! I even found a few fun items. At the first sale I picked up this Puma purse which I had never seen before. She only charged me $1 so I took a chance on it and I’m hoping to get between $25 and $30 for it. She also had a few Martha Stewart craft punches which I grabbed. At another sale I paid $2.00 for a large unicorn Squishmallow. It’s not one of the rare ones but I am hoping to get $20 for it.
The most fun part of the day was when I passed a small sign that said “Moving – everything must go.” So of course, I drove to the address. It didn’t look like a sale. It looked like someone was moving. There was a dumpster and some furniture on the lawn. I asked if they were having a sale. The lady said “We just need to get rid of stuff. Take whatever you want. There’s glassware in the dumpster.” Hmmm. OK. Well, the dumpster was a walk in with one side open. On each side of the dumpster it was piled high with boxes of items wrapped in newspaper. Right away I spotted a Pyrex primary color fridge set because it was in a clear plastic bag. I asked how much she was asking for it and she said “Just take It. You’re helping us out.” The set is not perfect but it’s great for the price. I took that and did a quick peek in some of the other boxes. I wish I could have taken my time and really looked more but it was kind of awkward being in the dumpster.
One of the sales I went to that day was an estate sale. The advertisement said something like “unimaginable amounts of stuff” which sounded good. But when I got there, first of all, there wasn’t that much stuff and it was all very expensive. I found one stuffed animal which was not priced and they sold it to be for $1 which was a good deal.
The rest of my finds for the week came from the thrift store. They include a leather Franklin Covey agenda binder, some Disney figurines from Dickens A Christmas Carol and a mid century ice bucket featuring a fox. I think the fox is dressed like a fox hunter which maybe is a statement about hunting. I don’t know. When I was in the doll area I found this felt doll purse which I thought was really charming.
Two more pick ups from the thrift store include this vintage Tonka fork lift and a Jurassic World dinosaur that I am lotting up with two other dinosaurs I already had.
That day gave me a much needed morale boost and I hope there will be more sales to come!!
