This weekend I attended a large flea market/tag sale event. This is the one where there are a lot of dealers but there are also people just selling stuff from their home at tag sale prices.
The first item I bought was this glass seal signed Villeroy and Boch. I have bought ceramic items by them and didn’t know that they made glass too. He was $3 and I am hoping to sell him for $20.
I bought 2 Barbie dolls from the Twilight Saga movies. I was a big fan of the books years ago so I recognized these right away. They actually came from two separate sellers and were each $5.
Speaking of finding things in pairs, I also purchased 2 Lightning McQueen Cars items. One is this rolling child’s suitcase. The other is a Halloween costume that is being washed so I haven’t photographed it yet. The suitcase seems to be selling for about $40 with free shipping. It’s pretty big so I imagine that shipping costs are going to take out a big percentage of the $40!
My favorite finds of the day were two Liddle Kiddle items. One is this Liddle Kiddle Kologne Rosebud doll with her bottle. I used to love these! I still do!!
The other was a Liddle Kiddles Jewelry Treasure Box. It had a few Finger Ding dolls inside. It would have been better if it had the original Liddle Kiddles inside. I love the colorful graphics.
The most surprising find of the day was a group of vintage pennants. The surprising part was that the lady only wanted 25 cents for each one. I purchased about 5 but here are the best ones.
The worst part of the day was when I decided to go back to the car to unload and then continue shopping, and then couldn’t find the car. I had set a landmark for myself of 3 red and white stripped tents. I found the tents but couldn’t find my car. I walked around for about 30 minutes and couldn’t find it. I finally walked in a different direction to see if there was another set of three tents with red and white stripes and guess what? There was. Finally found my car. It was pretty funny though because as I was walking around I met a couple that couldn’t find their car either. I was starting to think that they were towing cars or something but maybe they were making the same mistake I had. The bad thing was that by the time I found the car and dumped off my stuff I was pretty done. I did go back for a little bit but I had really had it by then.
It was fun before the car incident. A small haul but a good day.
