I went to four sales this weekend. That seems to be my number lately and as usual, two were good and two were so so. I wish I could foresee the better ones and only go to those but that’s the trick, isn’t it?
I went to an estate sale were everything was super expensive but I saw two American Girl dresses for girls – not for dolls. They are copies of dresses made for Kirsten. I asked one lady how much they were and she said $5 each but when I brought it up to pay I got the old “Oh – no no no no no. Those are American Girl. I can do $30 for both.” I got them for $25. I think she felt bad. Good. She should feel bad. If someone who works at the sale quotes a price, you should honor that price. I’m ranting. Anyway. I’m hoping to sell them for $50 each because they don’t make them anymore and they’re hard to find.
The best sale I went to was at a local church where everything was about $1. They hold this one twice a year and I usually walk out empty handed but not this time. I got these Fiestaware deep purple candlesticks – $1 for the pair. They sold shortly after being listed for $18.99!
There were 7 pieces of Quimper pottery. This pottery is hand painted and made in France. It is has a lovely folk art style. The tag said $1 for all.
I really like this little painted shelf. It looks shabby chic and would look nice displaying a few items.
The last item from this sale was a pair of patent leather Salvatore Ferragamo shoes. These are not the most popular style but I am hoping to get $30 for them.
On Saturday I went to a sale that was under a huge tent but most of the tables were resellers and I never can find much stuff in that situation. There were a few tables with tag sale items. At one I picked up an American Girl doll for $15. The only problem is that one of her eyes sticks so I will try to fix it before I sell her.
At the other sales I also picked up a bunch of Littlest Pet Shop. I spent $7 altogether and have sold the first group for $19.
The weather has been great making it so much fun to walk around at these sales! Hope you are all enjoying it!!
