This past weekend I hit a church sale that I have previously done well at but wasn’t having much luck this year. I pulled out a few things from the plush bin where it was fill a bag for $5. I got a Remy the rat from the movie Ratatouille, a Disney Fairy Godmother and a talking Alf. I may get $10 for the first two. I’m hoping Alf will bring closer to $30.
I bought two wooden items. My favorite is this small sewing box with a double door and handle. It looks like someone tried to make this other wooden box appear old but I think its modern.
I also picked up a vintage green vase, a needlework kit, a Robie the Robot bank that eats coins and a sealed box of moisturizer. Unfortunately the bank is missing the battery cover.
The next day I went to a flea market where I rarely find items to resell but on this day for $4 I bought a box of Madeline dolls and dollhouse furniture. All this was squeezed into a very small box and as a result some of the pieces were damaged but I’m still hoping to get a good profit out of it. I love to sell items like these.
The last find I will share was from a thrift store. I spotted the vintage nails on this wall art. I have sold two nail art wall sculptures in previous years for $200 each but this one has a tree in the middle of it. I can’t find anything online to compare it to. Either I see just the nail art or a sculpture that is just a tree with leaves. I can’t find the two combined like this anywhere else. Maybe that’s a good thing? I’ll let you know!
Happy Fourth of July to all my US readers! Happy July to everyone else!!
