There were several estate and garage sales in my area a couple weeks ago. I managed to get to three. Not bad. The first was estate sale leftovers that hadn't seen a dust cloth in about 35 years, no price tags (which turned me off), and folks running it that needed a meeting to decide on prices if you asked. Most were ridiculously high, but I lucked out on this.
You're probably thinking, "Lucked out?" Well, my daughter and I had just been saying how fun it would be to make a haunted dollhouse. For five bucks this will fit the bill nicely. Needs some work, but considering we wanted a run down looking house, that will be minimal. I will say these are the largest windows I've ever seen on a dollhouse. Maybe whoever made it thought that would be another way to get furniture in and out?? Maybe whoever made it never heard of 1:12?? Who knows?
Not much here for three sales, but you don't hit the jackpot too often.
Here's a closer look. A pair of old duck "huggers" salt and pepper shakers. They are from the 40s/50s and somewhat valuable, depending on who is doing the selling. A little wooden Christmas/Santa's castle scene. Three old New Year's noise makers.
The book laying in the outdoor photo did not have a cover. I think it's an old Ideals magazine. A lot of cute illustrations inside I'll use in collage projects someday.
I'm not a knee hugger person, but they usually sell well.
A little taste of impending Christmas. Where did this year go???
Have a nice day!
