The Garage Sale Gods Were Good to Me!

My First Weekend Out Treasure Hunting
after my 2 weeks in Salt Lake City, I mapped
out some Sales the night before
And while driving to the 
1st, an Estate Sale I was thinking
oh please let me find some treasures .....
And Just Look at all
The Vintage Delights!

This Cute Yellow Plush Bunny is sure
Happy to meet my Pinky!
And How about the Lefton chick 
in the background!

Sweet Little Sugar Bowl
A bit tattered but there was just
no way I could leave that sweet
little face behind !
The lady at the Sale said it was her
childhood Honey Pot!

The Estate Sale which was my first stop
had a pile of Vintage Christmas I started
going through and picking out things
when the ladies running the sale
said why not make an offer on 
the whole lot

So a bit of wheeling and dealing
and a $20 agreed upon price
and it was mine all mine!
Boxes filled with great treasures 
& some junk from China!
Here are some pictures of the
some of the Good Stuff

This Box of Mercury Garlands
was the first thing I spotted
It has been awhile since I have
found any of these!

The boxes really had a lot of sweet vintage
Christmas Goodies

It sure was fun looking through the
boxes once I got them home

So Many darling Vintage Christmas Angels

The Greeting Cards were from another Sale
they were glued onto Scrapbook pages
so I had to gently remove each one!

The Green and Cream Tin was 
filled with baggies of Buttons!
So for 1 price I got the Tin Basket 
and the Buttons 

These photos are just a portion of
my latest Treasures, and now I 
am one busy gal photographing
and listing the stuff for Sale!!

Aren't these Vintage 
Children's Clothes Yummy?
I snagged these at the same sale the
Yellow Bunny came from!

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my latest 
Estate & Garage Sale Saturdayfinds.
Be careful what you wish for
you just might get it and more!

Happy Hunting oxox

You managed to find lovely treasures... I love them all!

Love all of your finds, but i have to tell you about the little kitty sugar bowl. When I was a little girl in Long Beach, CA, my Mom put all of our cookies in the matching cookie jar to this pattern. The kitty's head was as big as mine & I loved the sweet little face soooooo much I would kiss it on it's sweet little pink lips. Mine is tattered too...but i still have it. The lid broke years ago, but the memories I have of it are delightful! Thanks for reminding me of those nostalgic thoughts!
Just found your lovely glad I stopped by. I look forward to following along with you on life's many adventures!!!
Smiles Friend,
