Never mind cleaning the bathrooms...or watering the garden...or working in the barn -- I was going on an adventure!
We'd talked a lot about how the sales always seemed better in the older neighborhoods around Detroit than they are by us and that we wanted to go to some garage sales there. That's what we did today! Bargain Hunter had four sales mapped out and ready to go.
The first sale was advertised as 'Pyrex and Vintage'. I felt sure the Pyrex would be all gone, but it wasn't -- there was a lot there, plus some other good stuff. I got a few things for my collection and a birthday gift for someone (I can't tell, in case she sees this post)
|This Bluebirds casserole and Apple Tree carafe will look great in my kitchen!|
|Gold spattered Fire King baking dish in a white metal cradle|
Next stop was an estate sale and it was a Prince (with a capital P)! The basement was packed. I got so much Christmas and fun kids' stuff there that I could hardly claim it fast enough. I filled a plastic salad bowl with Christmas kitsch AND got a Santa & sleigh for just $4!
|Santa & his sleigh have the original box. The spaghetti Santa has blue rhinestone eyes (just a little creepy)|
|Gurley candles and Hong Kong nativities are always popular|
|Love this Japanese stocking face pose doll|
|The chalkware puppy will have to stay here, I think...I've really become attached to him|
|Fun kids' books|
|I think the paper dolls go with the Betsy McCall set...they have mohair doll hair|
|Embroidered tea towels|
|Of course, there had to be a pennant there somewhere!|
|Cowboy and western glasses are so cool!|
Hope you have a great weekend!
