Hot Day for Treasure Hunting

Well Not the hottest day
 in actual Vintage Finds but 
weather wise a HOT 80+ degrees!!

I had the company of my daughter this 
morning, we did a little garage sale

I'd say we hit about 7 sales in all

We planned on getting out early
to do some good old treasure hunting
and then back to my house
so our daughter
could set up her sale.

I found these sweet little Easter Baskets
I've had a few of these over the years
and most of the time
I sell them..

But this small one with the crumbled
bow and vintage Easter grass
I think I might just have to keep!

We found a few hankies
and some very fun vintage scarves
The pink and green is a Vera 

This silly patchwork stuffed
Christmas Stocking 
was just to whimsical
to leave behind

Now the score of the morning was
this vintage wool Hudson Bay
4 point blanket

It's in very good condition
I am anxious to see what I can
sell it for!!

So all and all it was a very
good day. And great company.
Our daughter Breezy sold most of her
Baby items and the rest
we took to the local Charity Shop.
Those donation slips always
come in handy at tax time!
And tomorrow the weather is
predicted to be a comfortable 76 degrees.
Thanks for stopping by oh yes I almost forgot...

Remember these ornaments I picked up
last weekend? Well they sold for
$120 keep your eyes peeled
for these little treasures



OH MY..those spinners sold for ALOT of $$$ WOW!!! That is great for you! You have a keen eye for sure.
Fun finds and I wish spring would come to MN!
I have a couple of the old Easter baskets and they don't sell. Guess people don't realize that they are vintage...

I have bought two of those Hudson Bay blankets from LLB over the years. One I gave my son and one I have out in the guest cottage, it's like brand new really. Mine has never been used enough to even clean yet.

I still have my Easter basket from my childhood that looks like the ones you found...I even have a crumpled bow! But, I leave it that way after all my Grandmother gave the basket to me!

You go girls!

Cindy said...

I'd say you did pretty well. That blanket should sell for quite a bit, I'm thinking.
