Garage Sale Finds 07-26-17

I realized I haven't posted any of my garage sale finds for awhile.  We've been so darn busy buying stuff, re-doing furniture, listing stuff on Etsy and taking stuff to the booth at the antique mall - Cripe, I can hardly catch my breath.  I just realized that I never took any pictures of a lot of the stuff that I took to the booth and I could kick myself.

Anyway, here's a couple of the things we picked up last weekend....

This is a cute set of canisters.  My son, who is getting married in 6 weeks, already snatched this from me...


The eagle belt buckle is gorgeous....


Ice skates seem to be a good seller for me.  I think people like them for Christmas decorations....


I had 2 of these clown cups before that sold so I thought I'd try another one...


I loved this round cheese grater.


These 2 medical jars were very cool.  I picked them up for a song and they sold almost immediately....


A triangle shaped ruler, still in it's original container....


A set of 11 sea shell napkin rings...


I love these vintage vanity mirrors and lately I found a bunch of them.  Some of them I sell as is, and sometimes I repaint them...

Rectangle shape....

Gold oval shape....

This one with the railing around the mirror was different....


A nice cracker jack tin - already sold....


These frames are hit or miss for me....


A white vanity mirror.  This one came already painted so all I had to do was clean it up....


An oval vanity mirror that I painted gray......


I love these cloche's.  They have so many uses.  I painted the base gray and that was all I did to it....

Accordion folding Hat racks are great for so many things - holding hats, scarves, jewelry, dog leashes and cups....


2 gallon Coleman thermos jug in excellent condition....


This folding rack has nice chunky holders...


I love these old brushed tin canister sets.  This one has only the flour and sugar canisters, but I'm sure they will sell.   The lids are almost a pale pink color and really pretty....


Here's a couple of recent pictures of my booth.  I am shocked at how quickly we filled it up.  Last month we did really well and I showed a nice profit.  Let's hope that continues....












That's it for today.   If you missed yesterdays book review on Cookin' it with Kix:  The Art of Celebrating and the Fun of Outdoor Cooking by Kix Brooks, be sure to go check it out.  It's one of my favorite cook books ever!

  5. I have found that with the old metal picture frames, if you put a piece of pretty scrapbook paper in them they sell much faster!

    You found lots of great finds and I'm so happy your booth is doing good!!

    1. Thanks Tania - I'll try that. I filled some with vintage music sheets and that didn't help at all. :-(
