Hanging On By A Thread

Tag sale season is hanging on by a thread because there were 2 sales this weekend! One was a holiday sale at a school with one room in the back for a tag sale which was mostly toys. Yeah! The second sale was a christmas bazaar at a church which was actually 80% tag sale stuff! Double yeah! At the first sale I found another Vanellope doll which is the girl from Wreck It Ralph. I sold a similar one a few months ago.


They had some legos on a table. Most of them were in ziploc bags. It’s hard to buy them like that because you can’t tell whether or not it is a complete set. I picked up a Lego City dump truck that was still in the box but the pieces were in ziplocs. It seemed pretty complete to me. Legos are a little harder to sell these days. People want them mint in the box. They were selling all the lego sets for $7 each and people were complaining that it was too much money. I didn’t think that was too bad for the truck in its box.


I wasn’t finding too much else but as I was looking around I saw a plain wooden box. When I looked inside there were 2 vintage Nintendo 64 games and a purple N64 controller. If it all works they should sell fairly well.

The second sale was so cute. As soon as you walked in they pinned a little miniature wreath pin on you and handed you a little tote bag! On the first floor there was a lot of china, glassware and linens. Downstairs was a room with toys. The corner was filled with dolls and stuffed animals. I picked up a Pepe Le Pew and Penelope stuffed animal. When I checked the dolls I found a Bitty Baby. She is very scuffed up on top of her head. There was a small plastic backpack filled with doll clothes. When I checked it I thought I saw an American Girl label so I grabbed the whole thing. After I sorted it out at home I found 5 pieces of clothing for Bitty Baby and one American Girl doll dress. I also bought a fluffy white Gund dog named Dreyfus. When I went to pay, the lady said that this was like the dollar store and everything was a dollar so I got everything for $4. I was really happy with my finds.

So much fun. Hate to see it end. Maybe it will hang on for one more weekend?

  1. Great finds! You must do well with toys. I always wonder about that. If I’d have success or not. I don’t think I’d know what to look for since I’m so used to only looking for little vintage things. Thanks for sharing!
