In the spring/summer I fully expect there to be a ton more awesome auctions to attend. This is my preferred avenue to buy vintage goodies. However so far this season, I have yet to attend one. It's only slightly disappointing until I log onto craigslist and see hundreds upon hundreds of garage sales within a short drive of my house. I tend to narrow down the search using key words such as: estate sale (this is how you find awesome, cheap, family-run ones!), antique/antiques, vintage, collectibles/collectables, treasures, old, and a few other key words depending on what I'm looking for. I usually search for midcentury/mid-century/MCM and pyrex. Lately I've also been searching for wedding decor. All of my wedding decor is going to be 100% authentic vintage, most people don't list it that way.
Anyways, enough of my rambling. I'm sure you're here to see what I found this weekend...
Here's the group shot!
3 more wood tennis racquets. Can't keep 'em in the booth and I have no idea why people are buying them. Although, I'm starting to get a fascination with them...
More vintage Christmas!
Kneehugger family photo. They look a little drunk here..
Chippy white metal plant stand that is holding a yellow Pyrex 503. The horizon blue 444 has white crud on it that I hope BKF will take right off. Also - more ugly Pyrex (Homestead), but when it's cheap, you buy it. Also, a roll of vintage wallpaper.
More Pyrex and another cheap ugly one (Forest Fancies). Also, always buy Ball jars when they're cheap, even if you have a million already.
This guy to the left was my favorite find from Saturday. It's a pixie playing a piano planter! His face looks like he's whistling. Plus 3 Americana pieces.
A midcentury metal plant stand holding an ugly Pyrex Early American 444. Plus a Fisher Price "popcorn popper." Think my 18mo old niece would get a kick out of it. And some unused Yahtzee score pads.
Mom hit one sale on Friday and picked up all of this for like 2 bucks. I kept the green handled cook cutter you see there.
Well, that's it for this week. I'm back in school until June 17th, so if I'm a little silent around blogland, I'm sorry in advance.
Have a great week!
