Saturday Finds Part 2!

These are all finds from last Saturday when I hit up two amazing estate sales. (Part 1 is here!)


I think this family had a lot of parties - after the two bar sets and the plethora of drink umbrellas I found, they looked like they had fun! Bought a ton of large and small drink umbrellas and then games at the second estate sale - Yahtzee, Scrabble, and Parcheesi plus a really cute bi-plane puzzle!


Old magazines are so fun and I found two House Beautifuls and two Beatles covers!


This red bag was one of the very first things that caught my eye at the first estate sale. I am contemplating keeping it - I love it! I mentioned the family must like to have fun - I also found this great Vegas/casino set. You can play a bunch of different casino games on it!

At the second sale, I found twin sheets still in the package! Perfect for a vintage-loving mom who's decorating her hip son's room! Also grabbed a Bobbsey Twins book and a Lassie book plus a Highlights magazine from 1955.


This green metal basket was a treasure trove of vintage packaging! I totally thought of Eartha Kitsch when I found it! It's full of vintage hair products (including perm supplies!) and shoe shining items. I haven't dug through it a ton yet, but I'm excited to research the different brands and products.


I just added a ton of jewelry to my booth, so I was happy to find two jewelry boxes to hold it all in!


Vintage sparklers still in the box! So cool! And I can't pass up such pretty stationery in a box! I also got some pretty drawer liner and this adorable deer!

Lucy loved the deer too:


Whew! That was almost everything I found over the weekend but I left some different little books and paper out. I bought a french grammar workbook and a "camp songs" book and things like that.

I won't be adding it all to my booth right away - it feels a little crammed right now, so I'll be slowly adding items. If you're in town and curious about a specific item and when it's going in there, just let me know!

  1. There's that green basket. LOVE that thing!

  2. so many fun items! sheets still in the package? how cool! I love all the games, played them all over the years. :)
    oh my gosh....look at that lucy! Louie says "glad she's smelling someone else's behind for a change" hahahah that little deer is precious!

  3. Oh...ho...ho! Those products! Please let me know if those hit your booth - as well as the green basket. You found some great stuff. Those Sparklers are awesome. I have that exact same drawer liner and it smells like roses!

  4. Great stuff and such a funny picture of your dog! Ooh, you found a Bobbsey twins book- those are my kryptonite. I have a large collection and I have a super-hard time resisting buying more.

  5. I love the vintage packaging on the simplest things...the drink umbrellas and the sparklers.

  6. Yea, Lucy loved the deer, the tail is probably made of rabbit fur.

    You found a lot of fun stuff

  7. thanks everyone! mom, too funny about louie! :)

    i had no idea it would be rabbit fur - interesting! she kept smelling EVERYTHING but was definitely most interested in the deer.

    isn't the packaging great? it's so fun to find original packaging!

    i think this was the first time i found a bobbsey twin book! i'm not super familiar with them!
