I mentioned in yesterday's post that Friday was better than Thursday (and Thursday was good). I had signed up for the Friday sale the night before within minutes of the address going live on the internet. I was still number 75! When I got to the sale on Friday morning they lined up the first 25 on the list to get in the door. Those lucky souls entered, but the door was left open with no one watching it. We were like lemmings..one after another we all followed each other thru the open doorway. I bet 70 people were through the door before the woman running the sale noticed and screamed for the door to be shut. I was a lemming, I admit it...but I was in the door with the first wave!
Here are the goodies from both Friday and Saturday.
The Friday sale was wonderful for vintage Christmas. Unfortunately the prices were crazy high. There were ebay printouts scattered here and there that gave the "value" to the items for sale. I still found some good treasures at decent prices...I just had to hunt a bit for them.
I found four of these ornament trees. I have found one previously, but only that one time. They are about 15 inches high and the ornaments are supposed to be loaded all the way to the top so the wire does not show. I have enough ornaments in my stash that this is an easy, easy fix.
A cute little Snowman pick, a celluloid deer and a tiny pinecone elf.
An adorable donkey vase (Rempel?).
A bird figure for my bird bathroom and a tiny plastic birdbath.
Some sort of state game. It is dated 1925. I liked the game pieces that came with it. It looks confusing.
I would have no idea how to play it.
This photo of the child is mounted on heavy wood and is about 14 inches tall.
Three days in a row with good sales! I am has happy as these little elves I found. Even the ball of twine made my day!
