Winter marches on with freezing cold temperatures here in the northeast but the earth keeps turning and spring is on the way! I have found a few things at the thrift store. The first item I will mention came from my local thrift store about the time I found the vegetable dolls. It needed some cleaning before I could photograph it. It is a mid century modern salt cellar by artist Emil Milan. The previous owners actually used it to serve salt so there was some damage there that my husband was pretty successful in repairing. It has a very cool mid century modern shape. I am hoping it will bring over $50.
I stopped at the Goodwill last week and found this pretty bear with a tag for Carolsue Designs. Her bears seem to sell on ebay and I think this one was especially pretty with the green and white dress. Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day!
I found this little Tow Mater in a $3 bag at the thrift store. He is unusual and I’m hoping to get about $15 for him.
This next item is a vintage Japanese Kutani vase which I had never heard of before. Some of them sell well on ebay and some of them don’t sell at all. I am putting it up for auction with a low starting price. It’s pretty with reddish brown and gold coloring.
Finally, I found a set of 6 retired Stampin’ Up instrument stamps. The set was $6 which is a lot for me. I am going to try to sell the stamps individually.
I have had some good sales recently.
Pair of vegetable head dolls: $86 each to the same buyer
Pomegranate tray: $39
Oversized chess pieces: $34
Ralph Lauren pillowcases: $24 with free shipping
Moving truck stamp: $19
I am actually starting to see some dates for spring tag and rummage sales popping up online. Yeah!!
