Headed on over to Superior, WI, to see what this sale was about. It was the second day of the sale, so I was skeptical whether I would find anything. The best part was that everything was half off! Yippy!
Gotta love the lamp on the left! So retro! The little match box and the extra large Xmas tree stand are fun, too. Not so crazy about that bird nest deal. I found him in the stand when I got home. I'm guessing I paid for him...not that a quarter is a big deal, but still...really?
Some fun kitcheny items...a Wear-Ever chopper, a muffin pan, a large refrigerator dish, and some odd little tube/canister.
This stuff came out of the "fun" room. I was drawn to the two red books about typewriting and bookkeeping. Anyone else learn to type on an actual typewriter like me? There's another small book, a slinky in its original box, some dice, and one of those solitaire triangle games...you know...where you have to try to end up with only one peg. I've been playing it every night!! I can't stop!
The other fun item is the Betsy McCall Pretty Pac. My mom had (and still has) a Betsy McCall Fashion-Designer set. It has a light box and different outfits that you trace onto a basic Betsy McCall figure. It's the coolest thing! I played with it a lot when I was younger. So, when I saw the Pretty Pac, I was inspired! Deb@Talkin' Trash, I'm using the Pretty Pac to get ready for your party on Friday!
Next up was an indoor garage sale. It seemed a bit out of the way, but it was ultimately worth it.
Aren't these the most wonderful potted plants? There are also two baskets in the background.
Gotta love the enamelware pitcher, my second refrigerator dish of the day, a pack of letter stencils, a pointy receipt spike, some large pins, and a stash of vintage picture rail hooks.
I've seen the Reader's Digest rack above repeatedly for months and months at this one antique store I visit. I never had a specific purpose for it, so I always left it behind. When I received the prize I won from Olive Rue's recent giveaway, I all of a sudden knew...it is going to hold my notecards, giftcards, etc. I've stashed it in my office already, and it is filled will all kinds of goodies. I'll have to remember to snap a photo for you!
On my way back from Superior, I stopped at the large Goodwill store. I found the coat rack and the chair above. The mirror is from the estate sale I was at earlier. Some lucky flea marketers are going to end up with great deals!!
PUTTING THE RETRO LAMP TO USE...
Whew! I'm tired just looking at all the stuff I bought! I've been busy on projects with some of them already. The retro lamp has been sentenced to hard labor in the kitchen! That's one of my favorite quotes. So inspiring!
