My Vintage Spring $10 Saturday Finds

My list of Garage and Tag Sales
was slim....

But nevertheless there was
Treasures to be found...

The funny thing about my list 
that I had prepared the night before...

Not a single treasure was found
at any of those sales~

Everything came from one Pop-Up Sale

Cute Vintage Fruit Cake Tin

Pretty Vintage Stoneware Pie Dish

Vintage Covered Dish
Made In England~

Sweet Vintage Christmas Spinner Ornaments~

1959 Parker Brothers Risk!

A box that had all these Soap Bars
the three P and G are authentic Vintage

This game my Brothers and Sisters and I Loved
The Game of Life~

And a pretty Rogers Silver Co.
Pedestal dish
Not Bad for a mornings hunt... 
let garage sale season begin!



Fun finds for the first garage sales. I did see a sign today..however..hubby didn't want to stop! Did make it to 2nd day of estate sale and found just a few things.
Cool soaps! Love the blue on the wrappers.

Great Saturday finds, Diane! I used to play with the Life pieces when I was little but I never could sit still long enough for the actual game!

So what is a "pop up" sale? ♥

ooooh, I love that soap!

Tammy said...

Wow! What treasures! I'm jealous! LOL I have a set of those spinner ornaments handed down to us from my mother-in-law. The heat from the light bulbs makes the little pinwheel inside spin. I love to see them spinning away on my Christmas tree.
