Some weeks are just better than others in the junk world….
I decided I would hit some garage sales today to give my thrift stores a chance to replenish themselves….glad I did!
While the first few weren’t so great….I did hit one and scored this:
It was box filled with vintage wine labels (about 500) from the 70’s. Most are German wines…all are unused…I love boxes of multiple things. I haven’t started brainstorming uses for these, although removing a “Boone’s Farm” label from a bottle of Strawberry Hill and slapping one of these babies on might be funny. I have no idea the value…it was a gamble.
After I went to a couple other dud sales…I headed to a church rummage sale. I LOVE church sales…. they usually have a ton of stuff that the volunteers are practically giving away so they don’t have to haul it somewhere else. This was an AMAZING sale….here’s the rundown.
These were .25 a piece. They are worth about 15.00 for the lot now…but if I wait to pick up some more of them…the price goes up dramatically. I’ll keep my eye open for these books in the coming weeks. Why Cleary, you ask? Anytime a movie comes out that features an author…those books become more in demand. If you can find a lot of them…even better. Teachers and moms grab them up for a good price.
What is this you ask? Ropes? Worms? Intestines? Nope…BETTER! This is a 3 pound bag of roving wool…which for any needle felter like myself is like finding PLATINUM GOLD!!!! Whoo-hoo! This one really made me do the “happy dance” when I saw it…
Sometimes, when I’m at a sale, I get caught up in buying frenzy. Don’t get me wrong…I love these fabrics. These were more impulse buys. The BOHO looking one is about 8 yards…and the other is about 5 yards. I have no idea what I can get for them…but I know its more than I paid.
So, all in all…another great day.Going out again tomorrow for the “Trifecta of Treasures” days..we’ll see what happens. Although, on Sunday…I may hit this estate sale in Sarasota….it…looks…awesome!
