On Saturday, I had a very successful day of shopping estate sales. Wooo wee, it took awhile to take photos and edit them! Here's Part 1 of my finds!
Have you seen old rotary phones selling for a ton? Me too! I probably won't price this crazy high, but I will start at $25 and see what happens. There's a guy at the flea market who sells them for about that. Seems strange to me, but I am going to try and see!
I love love love old pencil sharpeners and try to scoop them up whenever I find them, which isn't often. So glad to find this one!
I found this exact same cooky-pastry press over the summer and it sold almost immediately in my booth. Happy to find another!
This ceramic horse bookend is SO cool! Love it!
I almost always buy (and sell quickly) these cute little scales.
Gosh, I love crewel. I've never found an unopened kit in such good condition! The box is a little smashed, as you can see, but it's still the best condition I've personally found one in.
Love these danish-looking salt and pepper shakers!
I have a very similar cake platter in my booth right now and it attracts a lot of attention. It hasn't sold yet, but very frequently when I'm in my booth working on things, people will step in to take a closer look at it. I might lower the price a little bit so it will sell and then I can replace it with this one.
I have no idea how to play bridge but I couldn't pass up this owl bridge scorepad! It will be going to the booth!
Travel bar sets! Two of them! There are various items missing from them - don't you think? Or is the empty space for your liquor bottles? Think I can sell them as-is or do I need to find some replacement pieces? Man, I really hope someone buys these and has an AWESOME picnic this spring. :)
I am inexplicably drawn to flash cards and I was THRILLED to find this enormous box of very organized flashcards. There were a ton of reading/vocab flashcards and then also an envelope of flashcards with illustrations on them. LOVE THEM. Still trying to figure out how to sell them! I could get more bang for my buck if I sell them individually, but I'm not totally certain how to best do that. Any thoughts?
I love buying craft supplies at estate sales - they're so well-priced and there can be really rare, interesting items!
I've always liked these opaque plastic sewing boxes but have never bought one... until now! I packed it full of some fun supplies like an embossing pen and glitter, bobbins (you can never have enough!), and this crazy "graining tool." It looks fun!
This is only roughly half of what I found! Part 2 coming up next! :)
If you're heading out shopping this weekend, good luck! Hope you find lots of treasures!!
