There was one sale that I attended at a church that was good for me this week. I headed to the toy area first where I picked up a boy Bitty Baby and a bag of small animals, including Littlest Pet Shop. The doll was $2 and the bag of animals was $5. The bag had 30 Littlest Pet Shop pets in it.
After the toy area I went to the household area where I found some interesting items. The first one is a small micro mosaic picture frame. When I researched it they seem to sell for good money if they are marked Italy but mine is not marked. It’s still very pretty and seems old so hopefully it will still sell. I picked up a set of 8 glass colored lantern slides. I don’t know much about these. I guess, in the old days, before TV and anything fun, they would project these onto the wall. This set includes scenes from Gulliver’s Travels, Peter Pan and some animal pictures. It is not very valuable at all. I’ll be lucky if I get $10 – $14 for it regardless of it being old and interesting.
I bought two baskets which look like they could be Native American baskets but since I have no information about them I have to sell them as vintage baskets with geometric designs. They are not marked or signed anywhere.
I also picked up a large paper mache Erzgebirge Easter egg from Germany. I think I may have to wait for next Easter for it to sell. Finally I picked up two cast iron Scotty dogs.
I paid $30 for everything at this sale. Hopefully there are some good ones coming up and it may finally be warming up here in May!!!
