Wish Granted!

Just as I was hoping that there would be more sales soon, there were three decent-looking ones this morning!  I should have gone to my packaging supplier to get more styrofoam peanuts & bubble wrap, but went shopping instead.  None of the sales were close together, so I used a lot of gas (and covered about 100 miles round trip!), but it was fun hunting.  They were in the opposite direction from the supplier, so that errand will have to wait for another day.

I got a fair amount of stuff for not much money -- always the big bonus of yard sales and family-run estate sales!

The Cootie game is from 1949 and had the bonus of enough pieces to make 4-6 more cootie bugs + the pieces from an old-school Mr. Potato Head (the kind the you poke into a real potato)  Doesn't the burger look like a McDonald's ad burger?  It's a 1950s patty press  -- the attention to detail they used to put into inexpensive items always amazes me.
 The star of this sale was the Pyrex Friendship divided dish with painted lid.  Everything else paled in comparison.
They practically gave me this wooden plant stand.  I think it will make cool booth display until it sells.

I don't know what sales tomorrow will bring, but I might just stay home and work on booth & Etsy prep -- we'll have to see if the temptation of finding a bargain is too much to resist!

Success! And I bet it was a lot of fun too! I never knew there was a Mr.Potato Head where you had to use an actual potato!
Fun stuff- Erica :)

Pyrex Friendship should always be the star of the show. It is increasingly becoming a harder pattern to find.

Have a great weekend!
