My Finds from the 2016 127 World's Longest Yard Sale - Part 2


Hey guys!  I'm back to share the rest of my finds from my 127 yard sale trip.  You can peek at the rest of my buys HERE.  So much like last year, I bought more soda crates!  They're great sellers for me.


It's not in the best shape, but it's still perfect for farmhouse decor!


I can't get enough of these little metal bathroom shelves!
As soon as I put them in my booth they're gone.


I was SO excited to spy this set.  After a little negotiating, it was mine!
This isn't going anywhere but into my Hoosier cabinet!


Another couple buys for myself.
Added to my Hoosier cabinet.


I bought a bunch big and small pennants this year.
These three were keepers.
Indiana is my alma mater.
And my hubby collects vintage aviation stuff.


Vintage material, feedsacks, and THE CUTEST kittens riding a spaceship seersucker material.


Vintage cardboard hotdog holders.
And a never opened bag of trinkets!


I'm a sucker for vintage office supplies.
Especially ones in little boxes.


An up close shot of the new old stock paper parasols I showed you last week.
The pink and blue would be cute for a baby shower.


A stack of Homer Laughlin Riviera.
This is a pretty valuable pattern.
Unfortunately several are chipped.
Not bad for being 80-90 years old.


2 Fire King Sunrise Swirl plates

Does anyone know anything about this plate??
It's a clear plate with orange fired on color on bottom and black graphics on top.


5 Lu-Ray cups!

Okay, I think I got everything now!
Thanks for visiting!

Southside Booth August Update


After coming back with a huge haul from the world's longest yard sale... I had to visit both of my booths.  But, since I just expanded my southside booth, it needed more stuff to fill it.

Above is a overall shot of the original booth.  You can see one 2 of my lovely quickies here - the mint green shelf & quilt square bunting.












Next up, the new addition... Ah, it is starting to look so much better.  I brought a lot of the bigger items from my garage.









The rack holding the aprons here I bought back on the US40.  It is an old window shades (blinds) display.


Does anyone want suitcases?
I can't pass them up when they're cheap.
And they're literally piling up at my booth.
Self-imposed ban on suitcases for the rest of the year.

Thanks for stopping by to tour my booth!
Have a great weekend!
Melissa

Quickie #6


In the history of quickies, I'd say this was the quickest of them all.
I've had this raw wood shelf lying around for ages.
It has been used in my antique booths from time to time as a filler piece.
I decided it was time to give it a makeover.
No sanding, no prep of any kind.
Just 2 cans of 99c Krylon spray paint.
And about 6 hours of drying time.



PS - this was a wimpy post for my 300th post since starting this blog!

Thanks for dropping by!

My Finds from the 2016 127 World's Longest Yard Sale - Part 1


Hey guys!  I'm  back to share some of my finds with you from my trip down the 127 yard sale.  The bestie and I had a wonderful time.  We found so much good stuff I've had to break it up into 2 posts.  Thanks to the Beast, I was able to bring home more than last year!

In no particular order... here we go!


How could I resist this bright orange suitcase that looks (and smells) like it was never used.  
Still has the key!


A crate from a bottle company from Bluffton, IN.  
A bunch of milk bottles.
A set of aluminum cups in mint condition.


Lots of paper flour bags!
Perfect to help achieve that farmhouse kitchen look.


Odds and ends.
Antique booth bread and butter here.


Enamelware or Graniteware.
Name depends when you're from, I guess.
Aren't the little scoops just darling?


I was really happy to find vintage marked USA horseshoes.
Always happy to pick up old spools.
These dustpans make household chores less boring.


More bread and butter items.


Lots of great items.
The Kirks sign is in mint condition.


Sometimes even when items are (a little) beat up or rusty, I'll still get them.  I can get them for a good price and pass them along for a good price.  Everyone wins!


Ugh, this little green bench.  Currently housed in my antique booth, but will be a keeper.  I love the color combo of the red lustroware items on here.


I got lucky to find so many pennants at great prices.


They have become a staple at my booths that people ask for!


I'm surprisingly selling Barbie cases and clothes pretty well!
I'll be keeping an eye out for more of these.

Oh, and those naked lady mugs... for the mantique section of my booths.


I put out the dip bowl from the Pyrex delphite Golden Grapes set and it didn't even last 2 minutes!


A favorite item I picked up.


Lots of odds and ends.
A Le Creuset!
Fire King bowls!
New old stock Dottie Dusters!


A bread box, 2 soda crates (Double Cola & Pepsi), 3 Ohio Art sand pails, little white kids shoes in the box, Hershey's tin, chalkware dog, and new old stock paper parasols.  I only brought a few of each color to the booth, but have nearly 100 left at home.


A camp stool!
I bought this at the first stop and it proved useful the rest of the trip!


Although some of the paint is coming off on 2 of the bowls, these were still in EXCELLENT condition.  AND I just so happened to have 2 of the middle size bowls already.  I decided not to put all 5 bowls together to sell, but instead priced them separately, so that people could get the one they wanted.


I desperately needed mini oil lamps.  I sell so many of these.  All I purchased are not even pictured.  Not sure how that happened...


Somehow I got 2 pictures of this lard tin.
And I still need to take a magic eraser to the permanent marker.


You can never have too many milk bottles or s&ps.
More bread and butter items.

Well, I'll be back soon with more stuff!
Stay tuned...
