Garage Sale Treasures to show you

Those last 2 lucky Saturdays I had with the estate sale and the hoarder's garage sale came at a busy time and I had so much more to show you than what was posted.
 I'm going to try and get some pictures taken and show you bit by bit over the next week or so some of the treasures I gathered .
I had to start off with these sweet bone china floral bouquets,  which were NOT from those two sales, but I wanted to show you that I now have a "collection" of them. The little vintage picture in frame was from one of the last two sales.
The beautiful Weiss rhinestone set from the estate sale. It is the most gorgeous deep blue On Ebay right now.
From the hoarders sale, this beautiful footed glass dish with lid on the center part and little dividers at each end. Anybody know what it was for? It must have had a purpose....
Center compact is a bit rough, the others perfect and soooo pretty! ...from the hoarder's
Well, I don't think this is what the dish was for but it works!!
A ballerina alarm clock......I hated to sell it but I did,,,,on Ebay, I had a couple of auctions running while I was away and it was a quick and easy one to put on.......When the alarm goes off the ballerina twirls and instead of a bell it plays a tune, sounds like a music box. Well, it's on its way to California right now!
Silver...........and there's more, in another post. The two on the right have been cleaned, they look lovely!
2 Roseville Pottery vases...each has a chip, but I didn't care as I only paid a couple of dollars each. The pressed carnival glass spooner in the middle was a the free box, it has a little chip I can live with and the price was right!......cutest little scottish terrier, cast metal.... all from the estate sale
ok.......this was too creeepy....I sold it at the Red Barn sale to a fella that was going to separate the pelts and mount them on a wall along with his other taxidermy pieces. I can't imagine wearing this...they had little feet and tails...ugh...from the estate sale...
This beautiful crochet tablecloth was a freebie....thrown in for nothing (I was a good customer :)! I'm just putting on Ebay tonight.
$1.00 old petticoat, two layers at the bottom, I love these old lingerie items.
Another sweet linen.........on Ebay now.....
Just pressed this one up too, and listed it on Ebay
Don't you just love redwork embroidery? on Ebay too..
Stepping away from the pretties, the aqua fan was a real score from the hoarder's g sale.......I love it!! I'm going to clean it up and it will reside with me until the Red Barn Sale in the spring. It works beautifully too!

As for the graniteware plate, I've not had a green one yet, and that old metal trowel will find a place with my
garden tools. I have one exactly the same and it is my favorite, strong and sturdy and comfy to work with!

I just about forgot.....these two huge rolls of lingerie pink, one blue!!.......I have to take my Etsy shop off of vacation and get the lace up for sale there, by the yard or something...

Well, that's all for now, I have to gather and photograph some more from those two sales. It is kind of spread out around the house, some still in boxes.
Tomorrow is Saturday..........the weather is holding so there will be a few sales.....I wonder if my luck will hold?
Have a great weekend and happy treasure hunting, and whatever else you will be doing!
I'm hoping to drop in for a visit to your blogs soon, I've missed so much this last while!

Hey Friend...
I am sooooo jealous of that cute little alarm clock with the ballerina...I would have so bought that from you, I ADORE it! I actually think I had one as a kid. Great finds friend!
When do you leave for AZ??? Maybe we can meet up this time since I'm not going to be tied down to the job & we will probably spend some time in AZ for the winter!! That would be fun!
Big Hugs,

Lucy, you hit some great sales! I love the ballerina clock and the old blue fan. I love those porcelain floral pins too, I use them for decorating small vases and shelves and knobs. I would have loved to have been at that sale, oh and you know I love vintage linen


Maureen said...

Oh my - it looks like it was one of those sales that would have me shaking with excitement! Woohoo!

You sure did find the sale of the century, it just keeps coming and coming. The colors in the vintage jewelry are beautiful.

Wow you totally scored - the ballerina clock is darling and the Weiss jewellery (which is very collectible, I'm sure you know!) is the most beautiful and original blue colour I have ever seen in vintage costume bling. Lovely.
