There was one good sale for me this weekend and a few yard sale fails. I really should stick with the bigger sales because I have such poor luck at the smaller sales. I spent $37 at the big church sale which included a $10 early bird fee. Here’s what I got.
There was a group of 7 carved wooden animals in a ziploc bag. I’ve never found/sold these before but it seems they might sell all together for about $20. They are about 2″ tall.
The reason I bought them was because they were in a bag with 2 Dala horses that I wanted. These swedish horses are collectible especially if you have an unusual color or size. Red is a pretty common color. The bag was unmarked and the lady charged $9 for the whole bag which seemed like a high price. I had the miniature Dala horse so I am putting all three horses together to sell.
I found this cute vintage Fisher Price picnic basket with some accessories inside. Fisher Price is becoming very common on Ebay. I’ll be lucky to get $10 – $15 for this set, but I think it’s really charming.
I found 2 vintage dolls. The first is a Madame Alexander Alice in Wonderland doll. She is missing some of her accessories like her white apron and headband. I believe she is from 1965 but it’s hard to read the date. I remember looking at holiday catalogs when I was young and wishing for these Madame Alexander dolls.
The other doll is a Diahann Carrol Julia doll. She is a character from a show that was from the 1960’s.
The best find from this sale is this miniature modern art chair that comes in a wooden crate from the Vitra Museum. I saw some writing on it and my first thought was “Oh no, some kid wrote their name on it.” Then I realized that it was autographed by the designer so it may help the value. I’m glad I figured that out before I tried to remove it!
Those were my finds for the weekend! Happy August!!
