Last Day of March Buys

On the last day of March I got up and left my house way before the sun came up.  I was halfway to my destination before the sun began to shine over the horizon.  I attended a very very large estate auction in the same town where Eddie has his flea market booths!  I planned to have enough time to visit them, but alas, the auction ran until nearly dark!

So, shall I show you what I got already??

First I bought a ton of player piano rolls!
These make great Christmas card holders.
See Pinterest for ideas.

Next, every issue of National Geographic from 1910s-1950s.  Nothing terribly valuable about them, except the ads.  Especially the Coke ads from the war years.

Old leather horse collar.  Would be cool just hanging on the wall.

A box of Grolsch beer bottles.  Not terribly valuable, but more and more home brewers are in search of these to hold their brews, as they can be reused.

The rest is random box lot stuff.
I love buying box lots.
I never dig through them all the way.
I figure for a buck or two, I can make my money back.
It's like Christmas when I dig through them, because I don't know what I'm getting.

"Grant me patience, Lord... but hurry!"

I love all these funky wall pockets!

Last buy: a box of never opened American Greetings and Hallmark invitations and cards.

Thanks for visiting!  I'll be back with more soon because I went shopping this past weekend too!


Linking up at:

  2. Lots of great goodies. I've got to look up the piano rolls on Pinterest.

  3. Melissa, That was a lot of stuff. I hope the sales are brisk and your pockets are jingling. Have a great week. Sylvia D.

  4. I would have a ball seeing what's in those boxes! That's what I love about the hunt of vintage treasures. You never know what you're going to find. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
