I went to 2 church sales this weekend and some very expensive tag sales too. Many of the house tag sales that I went to this weekend had prices like $6, $8 and $10. I prefer the $1 – $2 range of the church sales.
On Saturday I went to a church sale that had a fill-a-bag area. Each item was $1 or fill a bag for $2. Hand me a bag please! I didn’t find anything fantastic but I found enough stuff to make it fun and worthwhile. Here’s what I got there:
This is a funny pewter frog ballet pair. I have it up for $12. It’s quite heavy.
This blown glass bird is marked Joseph A. Rice on the bottom. I see listings for similar birds that are marked Joe Rice. I don’t know if this is the same person but I am assuming it is and I have it up for $19.
I put this pair of Dacor snorkeling goggles in my bag. I have them up for $14.00.
My favorite find in the fill-a-bag tent was this lot of vintage foldable stationery. I remember these from when I was young. All you have to do is fold it up and put a stamp on the back. No envelopes required! I love the designs. I have this up for $15.
That was a lot of fun and even if only 2 of these items sell I will still make a good profit on $2.
There was a toy room at this sale where I found a few items. Each item was priced $1. There were 2 Build A Bears dressed like Star Wars characters. I don’t usually sell BAB clothes but Star Wars usually sells so I bought the 2 bears for the costumes.
Another find there was this 1985 Pillow People cat. These stuffed toys are from the 80’s and are almost as big as a regular pillow.
At another church sale I picked up 3 pairs of designer sunglasses including DKNY, Dolce and Gabanna and Bolle. The sunglasses were 3 for $2.
I also picked up 2 pieces of Joan Rivers jewelry including this cute cherry pin which sold overnight for $19.50, and this watch with a plaid strap. Each of these was $3.
At the collectibles table I picked up this Harry Potter frog shaped tea infuser and this Mid Century Modern owl by Dux. These items were $1 each.
Those were my finds. It was a good weekend except for wasting my time driving to several too expensive tag sales where I bought nothing!
