This weekend I hit one good family tag sale and a large community sale. At the family sale I spotted a toy WWE Championship belt. I recently sold a similar one. I would never have picked these up if it weren’t for watching Youtube channels where resellers share what kinds of items they sell. These bring between $20 and $30. I paid $4 for this one because it was new. I also found this Handy Manny toolbox toy where the tools move up and down and sing. These also sell between $20 and $30.
Mugs don’t sell well for me but for 50 cents I decided to take a chance on a Sopranos mug. The last thing I picked up at this sale was this Coach bucket hat which was $5. I’m having a hard time figuring out what color it is. Is it yellow? brown? orange? It looks different in different light.
After this tag sale I went to a community sale where they have a whole section of toys and also a barn filled with everything else. It’s a really fun time. My find of the day was a bucket of vintage Polly Pocket sets from the 1990’s. It was $30 for the whole box and I was hesitant at first but when I saw a bag of tiny characters I knew that it would be worth it. It took me an entire afternoon to clean them and sort them out. In the end there turned out to be about 14 items to sell. Many of them were houses from the Pollyville collection which features a whole neighborhood of tiny houses and shops. I was able to match many of them up with their original figures. Below is the school and the church.
When I went into the barn I picked up these two porcelain figures. The cat is from Lladro and the Girl with the Pitcher is from Bing and Grondahl. They were $10 each but I thought that there would still be profit in them and have already sold the girl figurine for $34. Usually I don’t like to pay more than a few dollars for items but I’m learning that sometimes its worth it to pick up more expensive things. And yes, the girl is literally crying over spilt milk.
Also in the barn I picked up this 1960’s round suitcase and a bottle of YSL Champagne perfume. Both of these items were unpriced and I think I was charged $1 for each. I think the perfume bottle is beautiful and am hoping to get about $50 for it.
I will probably be adding on to this post later as I still have some items to photograph. The weather here in the northeast is really holding out. It’s been warm and beautiful. Great for tag sales!
