There were two good sales this weekend. One was at a church and one was at a school. The school sale is advertised as starting at 9 but when I arrived at 8:15 it appeared to me that people were walking in. The sale helpers were pulling out a lot of stuff to place outside so all the doors were open. I asked one lady if the sale was open and she said “No, we open at 9.” So I dutifully went to sit in my car but as I was sitting there I saw person after person with tote bags over their shoulder walking in so I got out of my car and walked in too. No one really seemed to care. Someone at the sale said “Who are all these people?” and someone answered her saying “They’re early birds.” I got some good things there and I credit it to being an early bird.
I found this vintage Hawaiian Punch board game from 1978. I really like the 3″ colorful figures of Punchy. It is nearly complete but is missing the instructions. I am hoping to get $40 for it. I think she charged me $2. Hawaiian Punch was big when I was growing up. We didn’t know about sugar back then.
I spotted two Littlest Pet Shop play sets but was hunting for the figures. Fortunately, nearby I saw a little plastic container and when I opened it there were 25 pets inside!
I didn’t see anything good in the bag and purse area but there was a separate area for wallets and there I found two wristlets, a Coach and a Sakroots.
I spotted a TI 83 plus calculator but someone “artistically” spray painted it with yellow! It was only marked 25 cents so I bought it. It works so I’m hoping someone who doesn’t care, or who likes yellow will buy it. I am selling it at a discounted price. Also marked a quarter was this stereoscope which is missing some parts so I’m selling it for parts or repair. These were the view masters of the past.
I also found a tote bag full of Fisher Price Adventure People. They are being washed now but I will post the photo when I have it. I’m trying to post as many toys as I can for the holiday shoppers!
At the church sale I found a wonderful set of artist colored pencils in a colorful tin. I picked up a very ragged Popeye toy, a cool vintage baseball trophy dated 1955 and some old cross stitch pieces.
I only bought one item at a regular tag sale which was this witch knee hugger. I have seen and bought many Christmas elf knee huggers but I haven’t seen a Halloween figure like this before. She has a sticker on her that says Japan. She certainly has a unique look!
I’m running out of sales to go to. I’m going to have to do some detective work to find some for next week!
