This weekend the northeast feels like winter again so there are still not many tag sales but I went to two indoor church sales on Friday night. The first sale had a toy room which is my favorite thing. They had some ziploc bags marked American Girl and I got overly excited and forgot to be careful! I spent $21 altogether on bags marked American Girl. One bag was completely handmade clothes. Half the clothes in the other bags were in such bad condition I had to toss them. Sigh. I still think I will do OK but I wish I had checked the bags before I bought them. Out of that lot here is what I found: Some very pretty clothes for Felicity, a group of 4 items for the doll Julie, a snow suit and Kirstens St. Lucia dress.
On Saturday, when I went to the one tag sale that I found, I purchased 2 more American Girl items. They are a pink treat seat that hooks up to the table so your doll can eat with you and a double doll travel bag. I paid $6 for both.
At the church sale, although I overpaid for the American Girl Doll clothes, I did pick up this set of 4 dolls from the show Super Why for $1 each. I am hoping to get about $50 for the group. They seem to be almost as popular as the Little Einsteins characters.
After the toy room I went downstairs where they have the knick knacks and housewares. I found a very pretty paperweight. Since it was signed I thought I would take a chance on it for $4. I couldn’t read the signature or look it up at the time. It is blue and gray with bubbles. It is by an artist named Randy Strong and it looks like his work sells fairly well.
The second church had much friendlier prices. Many of the items were 25 or 50 cents. I don’t understand that but I love it! Many of the items seemed older. I picked up this Catskill Game Farm souvenir snowman. The Catskill Game Farm was one of my favorite places to go as a child and later on too. I was very sad when it closed about 12 years ago. Tempted to keep this.
This picture is by a company called Buckbee Brehm. It’s titled “The Whistler.” It shows a child whistling to their bird. It’s very small and sweet. I’m hoping to sell it for about $18.
This is a little guy called Robie the Robot Banker. You put a coin in his hand, pop it in his mouth then he chews, moves his tongue around and rolls his eyes. This guy is missing his battery cover but I hope he will still sell. He is from the 1980’s.
One last item that I got at the thrift store was this vintage jewelry box featuring cats and kittens. It has a ballerina and mirror on the inside.
Hope you are getting to sales and finding some fun stuff!!
