Sales? Tag Sales? Anyone got a sale going on? Well, after a few good weeks of sales not much was going on in my area at all. There was one small sale at a historical society. I couldn’t go until after I got out of work but I was determined to find something. I picked up a set of vintage yellow buttons still on the card and sealed.
I couldn’t test for bakelite because I didn’t want to open the package and it doesn’t look like it would have made a great difference in the value and I don’t think they’re bakelite. The other item I bought was a vintage set of Parker pens. Actually, one is a mechanical pencil and one is a fountain pen. I couldn’t figure out the fountain pen at first but after I got it home I realized you have to pull off the silver end to see the nib. The pen and pencil were wrapped in clear plastic when I bought them so I think they are unused. The plastic wrap on the pen fell off because it was so brittle.
I purchased a few other small items and paid $5 for everything.
I bought one item at the thrift store this week and that was this Beauty and the Beast talking mirror. The white version can sell for up to $50 but this is a pink one that I can’t find listed anywhere.
When you press the button a character lights up and it talks to you.
I had some good sales last week including the following:
Hockey pin set: $34
Egyptian doll: $49
Scooby Doo: $24
Beatrix Potter Mr. Jackson Toad: $29
Raggedy Ann and Andy: $23
Hope you are having lots of sales where you are!
