It’s been a while since I have posted (5 months to be exact). It’s not that I haven’t had good finds or that I haven’t thought about it. It seems I either don’t have time or I don’t have good pictures and I hate to throw up a post with no pics. Sometimes downloading pictures is more time consuming than writing a post.
I have pics of some of my recent finds so I decided to get back in the saddle again and share.
I’ve picked up several industrial pieces. I really like the old mail cart and the patina on the file really spoke to me. I’ve had a similar medical cabinet once before and did well with it. I always do well with industrial stools and even though I prefer pairs I snapped this one up at a great price.
I picked up these duck decoys on a whim. Don’t know much about them but the price seemed good and it appears I have sold them so I guess following my gut was a good decision.
Fisher Price always is a good choice and I especially enjoy the Little People collections. Not sure if it’s a bit of nostalgia for my own childhood or because my youngest daughter has accumulated quite a collection of vintage Little People. Whatever the reason I picked up a whole tote of mostly vintage Little People items at a recent tag sale.
Toys have been a theme of late it would seem. I bought these old toys at a swap meet.
Old steel trucks usually bring more than I am willing to pay, but these seemed reasonable and when I was able to bundle some other items with them I couldn’t help myself.
This cool wooden Coke carrier was part of the bundle. Soda stuff is my favorite!
My final items are among my most recent finds and are season appropriate.
I found these vintage Christmas ornaments at a garage sale. Once again I suspect some nostalgic tie to my childhood, but these are really cool. The lot includes some nice West German ones.
