I apologize for not posting for several days :) I am an elementary school teacher and the end of August is always hectic so I haven't had much time for blogging. Thank you to those of you who keep checking in!
Anyhoo...Here are some of the goodies that I've found lately while out at the sales. This past weekend was a better weekend than I've had recently in the way of finding good vintage "junk".
This is my favorite find of recent weeks. It is a child-size shopping cart. This isn't a toy but an actual commercial grade cart made by a manufacturer that makes adult-size carts for grocery stores. This was used in an actual grocery store in my area where the young shoppers could push their own cart through the store just like mom and dad. My kids love it and have enjoyed playing "store" with it. Guess how much I paid for it? Only $3! You know all you moms out there are jealous! (Thanks Stacy - wink! wink!)
I also found this great vintage milk-glass spice set.
It was priced $1. I kid you not! The jars still had spices in them. All the paper labels are perfect.
Hubby and the kids went yard saleing on their own a few weeks back and bought me some treasures. Here is what they found for me.
This tiny metal Fineline eraser box - with the erasers still inside. This is to add to my vintage school supply collection. Actual size about 2" across. They paid $1.
This little pottery bowl set. They paid 75 cents.
A "Big Ben" alarm clock. Price = 50 cents
And this cast-iron match holder. I left the price tag on for the picture.
