Spring is coming to New England very slowly this year giving a slow start to garage sale season. Sprinter is spring that is still actually winter. I went to a church sale and found some vintage plush, toys and jewelry as well.
There was a toy area where I wasn’t finding much but I started looking at the pile of plush they had and pulled out a few vintage Disney plush. The better sellers are usually the more unusual characters. I found Berloiz who is the gray brother kitten from the Aristocats movie. I’m hoping to get about $30 for him.
I also picked up this Samuel J. Gopher who is a secondary character from Winnie the Pooh. I also have him up for about $30.
Lady, from Lady and the Tramp is a fairly popular character but this is an older and large version of her so I am hoping that I still may get about $20 for her.
Recently I sold a plush of Copper, the hound dog from Disney’s The Fox and the Hound movie for $50 so I was excited to see this plush of Tod, the fox. Unfortunately this small version of Tod may only bring $10. I also picked up a small Mario backpack clip. The plush toys at this sale were only 25 cents.
There were several baskets of costume jewelry at this sale. They were all in little ziploc bags and were a little hard to see but the prices were only between $.50 and $2 so I picked up a few of the bags. In one bag there were several horse themed pieces. I think the bracelets in this group were very pretty and I am selling all the pieces in a lot.
I also picked up a Minnie Mouse pendant and a gold tone, faux jade and rhinestone bracelet.
There were two other pieces that I picked up that I think might be sterling so I am taking them to the jeweler to have them tested. I should really get one of those kits and learn how to do it myself. After I find out more I will share them.
Finally I also picked up several pieces of vintage Little Tikes dollhouse furniture. I am hoping to get about $40 for this group. They were mixed up with a big lot of dollhouse items.
I picked up a few items at the thrift store this week including this pretty original watercolor. This is my favorite style of painting and I wouldn’t mind keeping this tea pot painting for myself.
I also picked up a few artist drawing pencil sets that were hanging in the bags on the wall. Neither of these are very valuable but they may sell for $10 each.
Those are the highlights of this week. I heard a rumor that it may warm up at the end of the week but I’ll believe it when I see it!
