2018 Greater Indianapolis Garage Sale

This past weekend was another Greater Indianapolis Garage Sale, where tons of vendors come and sell their stuff inside the Indiana State Fairgrounds.  Friday, a huge ice and snow storm hit central Indiana.  Luckily the weather cleared up by Friday evening and about 90% of the vendors were able to set up.  I was there as a shopper (of course).  

I got some neat things... so let's take a look... because that's why you're here, right?

Loving the laundry soap tin!

Debating on keeping the larger jars.  I already have a few, but sans labels.  Wonder if I can get repro labels?

Isn't this aqua Lustroware canister set super dreamy?  Almost makes me want to have an aqua kitchen.  Almost.

Some old pie pans - Jane Parker and Blue Bird.

Some metal odds and ends.

Love these drawer pulls

Some vintage fabrics - the blue floral is upholstery fabric, the pink has flocked lace bordering the flowers, and the gingham blue floral is reminiscent of feed sack fabric. 

I found quite a few seed/feed/grain sacks.
They're great booth sellers.

This one is in superb shape and would make an excellent decorative pillow!

Another one in great condition.

I found 8 of these with their original seed tags.

Some odds and ends.  I thought the hardware store want list pads were fun.

Apparently I can't stop buying children's books.

They're so cute.

And have such great graphics.

This bingo-matic game was a no-brainer for $1.

These White Rose corn meal sacks are HUGE.

A cute little black leather suitcase.

A box full of aqua Ball pint jars.  For some reason the pints are getting harder and harder to find.

And last, but not least, a pint Crown jar (I now have a pint, quart, and half gallon) and a red primary Pyrex bowl.

That's all for now!

Have a great week,


  1. Love your haul! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Wow, great haul Melissa! Love those green jars you're thinking about keeping. I'm sure you can find labels. I see them all over the place.

  3. The pint jars are getting harder to find here too. Great haul!

    1. Thank you so much for sharing your great haul at Snickerdoodle.

  4. Your finds are always AMAZING, Melissa! How to pick favorites--the large green Hoosier jars to begin with, followed by the drawer pulls and feed sacks. I smiled about the children's books; I apparently have the same problem, LOL.

  5. I love those metal bits and the little suitcase Melissa. How I wish shipping costs to S Africa were more affordable. I would love to take some of those pieces off of your hands

  6. You never buy anythings that I wouldn't! We are junkin' sisters for sure! Love it all and not sure which is my favorite.

  7. Found your link over at Hunt & Host and I'm from Indiana, but a couple hours north of Indy. Never even knew there was an indoor garage sale at the state fairgrounds!! You got some really great stuff there ~ envious of those green Hoosier canisters & the drawer pulls. I hope I can talk the hubby into going to check that out some time.
