Sunday, Muddy Sunday

OK – the muddy sale was on Saturday, but that doesn’t rhyme with the U2 song. So I went to a sale on Saturday that is held twice a year under these great big white tents. When I went to this sale in the spring I found nothing and I had gotten up early to get there. This time I wasn’t even going to go at all but around 10:00 I headed there despite the fact that it was pouring rain. I wasn’t really expecting to find anything but I did manage to find a few things. Sometimes things work out better if you’re not expecting too much. It was so muddy! My shoes and pants were soaked! The tents are put up on a field and the ground was just drenched. This little girl found a doll she wanted and then proceeded to drop her right in mud! My favorite find were these crepe paper turkey decorations. I think they look quite vintage and I love their faces. There were 7 in a ziploc bag for $1.

I found a Little Einsteins figure that I am putting with a rocket I found earlier.

I also found a storage case for the Madeline dolls that I am putting with 2 dolls from that set to sell as a lot.

Earlier in the day I went to a different sale where I found this bride Kewpie doll. I think she’s pretty cute – all dressed in lace.

Here is a baby honey pot Halloween costume from the Disney Store that I hope will bring about $25. I paid $5. I like the detail of the two bees on the lid. Can’t you picture some chubby legs sticking out of the bottom there?

I also had a few finds at the thrift store. One was this Dansk flatware set that is a complete service for 4 still wrapped inside the box. I paid $15 for this but I am hoping to get $75. P1260087

Last I picked up this big Rizzo the Rat who is a popular character from the Muppets. He measures about 21″ tall and I paid $7 for him. P1260124

Well – the weather is definitely turning. Hope you are still enjoying some good sales where you are!!
