LONGEST YARD SALE!
No......not that one! Our little County of less than 10,000 started hosting
it's own longest yard sale a few years ago. Though small, our County has 200 miles
of shoreline, so during summer our population really swells.
This year's sale was knocked backed by that troublemaker tropical storm, Andrea,
but a good many sellers still joined in to sell. A few of them scaled down and
moved their sale indoors, not a bad idea since it did rain again.
Sales are held by many groups ~ local churches, the Rescue Squad, the YMCA,
the Women's Club, the Art School, etc. Individuals also join in, so it's really a fun sale!
I didn't come home with tons of stuff, but love what I did find, and the prices I paid!!!
I found an unused journal, Fire King relish dish (which I already have,
but how could I leave this one priced a dollar?), and some fun costume jewelry.
Rose quartz and Adventurine beads, sweet rhinestone studded tulip, tiny
enameled purse pendant, rhinestone studded bee...I paid 50 cents per item ~ yay!
Not many linens this year (which probably means I should have been selling),
but found a sweet apron unused with paper label - Riegel textiles, SC.
Love finding linen items manufactured in the USA, well worth a dollar.
Also, a pretty set of pillowcases and a sweet embroidered runner too.
Loving baskets I spent a dollar for this one with the removable/washable liner.
Bag of sweet handmade Christmas ornaments for 50 cents.
The table-topper underneath has a small flaw, but it was 10 cents!
Found the vintage sewing basket at one of the church sales, so didn't
want to haggle on the price, more than fair $5 price tag, as it's in great
condition and still has the organizing insert. I don't sew :(
but will use it to hold some of my crafting supplies.
The Samsonite bag is in excellent condition priced $1 at the Art School sale!
I recently saw a photo of one of these train/travel cases that was crafted
with colorful paper and/or fabric that was so precious! Of course,
now I don't remember where I saw it.....if any of you saw the photo,
please let me know where to find it!
Last, but not least............
Comedy-Tragedy wall hanging masks
handmade from heavy copper, a believe-it-or-not price of $2!
Mr. Retro has already hung them on the wall next to our wood stove.
Have to be choosy about what decor can safely hang near a wood stove!
Do you like any of my finds? What did you find this week-end?
Thanks for visiting!
