It's Memorial Day weekend in the U.S. and at least here in the northeast it's the unofficial start of the Summer season and that means.... yard sales! Here's just a look at some of the things I found as I wandered about my town today. So here's what I do with a couple hours to waste and $5 in my pocket!
|I like these Amish dolls. I think they're handmade, there were no "made in China" tags and there was hand stitching in places.|
|Flower Looms! These vintage books were in great shape, from 1968 -1971. I do think I have a vague memory of these as a kid. They are just too kitschy fun!|
|Another vintage book (1974) of crocheted and knitted gift items.|
|And... I know I'll figure out something to do with these! A big baggie full of little wooden plant pots of various sizes.|
I did find some other things, like two nice shelves for my shop that I can use for displaying items. Of course, my husband's best buy was a Scalextric
racetrack... great fun!
