Vintage Toys, Books, Instruments, Figurines and More!
There were some town wide sales and two church sales that I recently attended. I’ll start with the category of vintage toys. At one sale there was a Little Tikes dollhouse with a box full of furniture. I would have purchased it but she was asking $50 and there really weren’t that many pieces. I kept looking and saw a pink box that turned out to be a vintage Littlest Pet Shop pet store filled with pets and accessories and it had a price sticker of $5 on it. Sold! Here are some of the sets I have listed for sale.
At one sale I purchased this big vampire puppet. He is absolutely huge! I also picked up a Princess Kate bride doll, a unique plush cat and a set of vintage Disney figures at the thrift store.
The vintage items kept coming. This concertina in the box sold well. I really liked this vintage figurine marked Japan. She sold very quickly for $24.99 making me think that I might have priced her too low. I thought this double decker piggy bank was very charming, as was this Villeroy and Boch hippopotamus trinket box.
At one of the sales there was a box of dollhouse miniatures for $15. I saw some vintage pieces and some Calico Critter items so I picked it up and had a fun afternoon sorting through it. My favorite find from the box this yellow miniature kitchen from the Smaller House series by Tomy which is from the 1970s. Here are the sets I came up with to sell.
One of my other favorite things to buy is vintage children’s books. I haven’t found any in a long time but I was at an estate sale and picked up these for $1 each. I really love the holiday golden book. It sold quickly for $19.99.
This week I had two items that I sold break during shipping. That hadn’t happened in a long time so I guess I was due but it still stings. Wishing everyone good weather, fun sales and safe shipping!
