I had a couple of thrift store finds I would like to share with you. I went to the same thrift store twice in one week because it is true that you should go often in order to see the different items that get put out. From last week I forgot to share this sweet penguin sculpture. It is unmarked but reminded me of Lladro because of the soft colors. I love the feeling that comes across from the child to the parent in this. I paid $2 and put it up for $20.
I have found Madeline dolls in the past and they always sell eventually for me. I had this Miss Clavel doll for a while and she has not sold so when I saw Pepito in his box at the thrift I thought that I could lot them together.
Globes are an item I have sold a few of. People really like to decorate with them. I thought this tin Ohio Art bank globe with it’s bright colors was very charming for $3.
I was excited to buy this NHL collector pin set. I comes framed but the background cardboard is a bit warped. I hope that doesn’t affect the price too much. I have seen them sell between $50 and $70. I bought this one for $7. There are 26 pins in all.
I was visiting my sister this weekend and just for fun I clicked onto the yard sale app that I have on my phone not expecting to see any but the was an indoor moving sale just 5 minutes from my sisters house. I didn’t get there until Sunday and I’ll bet that it was really good on Saturday. This is what I found:
A Christmas Peppermint Patty talking doll.
This interesting rustic plush owl made of burlap and sweater material.
And this printers draw that can be used to display miniatures.
I wouldn’t usually pick up something like this because it will be a bear to ship but everything at this sale was $1 so I couldn’t resist. I saw this little pin, or button, or I don’t know what it was, just sitting there on a table and I threw it in my pile. It turns out to be some kind of military badge. Others on ebay have sold for pretty good money but mine does not have the fasteners that others have on the back. I’ll still put it up and I will let you know what happens.
I had a few good sales. The Catherineholm blue baking dish that I hung on to for a while and enjoyed sold for $80 and the mid century elephant went for $50. Kind of sad to see them go but that’s what it’s all about! Happy shopping!!
