Mid Century Mod, Vintage Toys and Bobbleheads!

The first community sale I went to wasn’t packed like I like (with stuff, not people) but there were still some good finds. I spent $14 here. I saw this little ceramic dog and was going to walk by but I picked him up and saw that he was marked Lladro on the bottom. This is a collectible brand of ceramics from Spain. Usually any Lladro I find is priced at 20 or more but this guy was $2 so he was mine. He sold for $35 within hours of listing him.

A bag of toy furniture turned out to be from the Calico Critters series. I broke them up into two lots to sell. One is a birthday party set and one is a nursery. I’m hoping for about $14 for each set.

This pretty lady is a vintage paper mache pin cushion from Mexico. I haven’t found any sold listings for similar ones but the asking prices I see are fairly high so I put her up for $60 and will see what happens.

This set was sitting there with a $1 sticker on it. I follow some Youtubers who sell beauty products from tag sales and do well so I took a chance. There are seven different products here. Individually and new these seem to sell for about $30 each but these are used and I’m selling them all together. This will be an experiment for me. It is also an anti-aging system so if it doesn’t sell – maybe I’ll look 10 years younger!!

I picked up some interesting pieces of jewelry at this sale. There was a pair of triangle earrings and a large brooch that kind of looks like coral from the ocean. It can also be worn as a pendant on a necklace.

Some other sales I went to included a sale at a Synagogue and a few tag sales. I picked up a variety of items including a sealed in the package Sony Walkman, a Fossil wallet, a baseball glove and a vintage metal picture frame.

In the toy area I found some vintage Littlest Pet Shop sets. These were the first LPS that Kenner made before all the animals had giant heads.

This mid century modern teak bird is by a Danish artist. Unfortunately he has a bad chip on his beak but I was excited to find him and couldn’t leave him behind for $1.

The last items I will share came from bags hanging on the wall at the thrift store. Each was written on “16th anniversary 1964” so I believe these are about 50 years old. They are called bobble heads or nodder figures. I think the mermaid is so cute.

Many different items to be found this weekend!

    Llandro! WOW! What a find…and a sale. Good for you! And, the Walkman sealed in the package. I hope that is a good find, too. If I remember correctly, I have seen them sell for more $$$ than I though. Good luck on the rest of the stuff.

  2. Thank you! It was a good weekend after a bunch of not so great ones!!
