4/18/15 Estate Sale Finds

Another one of my top 5 Estate Sale finds in back to back weeks! That will never happen again! I purchased this vintage original travel poster for $40 did some research and saw them selling for upwards of $1000 online. It has such a cool Art Deco look to it. When I bought it, it was rolled up and priced at $85. I thought maybe it’s worth $100 if I’m lucky, boy did I get lucky!

   

  

Same estate sale as poster, box of about 100 vintage gas station maps. Paid $20, sold these already for $200. Could have made a lot more selling individually but time is at a minimum currently for me. 

 

As far as this 1940s TV box. I paid $5 for it, I removed the guts and plan to turn it into a fish tank for my place!

4/11/15 Estate Sale Finds

This was a top 5 scores weekend for me highlighted by 2 1976 Halloween masks. Was a beautiful million dollar estate and I was lucky enough to find these 2 masks in the attic. I paid I think $2 for the skull and $5 for the Creature from the Black Lagoon with the matching gloves. I had no idea what the were worth only that they were collectible being they were from the 1970s. But to find out they were worth near $1000 for both now that was a lifetime highlight for me!

I have some more auctions purchases to share this week. Who doesn’t love vintage cans and old advertising. There’s just something about the quality of packaging and the style of the way things used to be made. These are for sale, contact me to purchase. They are all new/never been opened and in great shape!

3/07/15 Yard Sale Finds

I went to one estate sale and got a small bundle of pins for $20. Some cool ones in there such as the WWII pin, 1960s auto memorabilia pins, a pair of old athletic award pins, Hopalong Cassidy pin, etc. I like old pins. I once went to a yard sale and bought a large trash bag full of someone’s lifelong pin collection. It is kind of sad when I find things like that but I do treasure them when I find them and also pass those items along to others who will treasure them even more.

This was the weekend of advertising signs! I rarely ever see signs for sale at a yard sale because most of them are snached up already or are part of a collection. I got 3 from the same yard sale! I love signs ๐Ÿ™‚

For this week we have a theme.. PHOTOGRAPHS! I love old photographs, I’ve always collected them over the years and tend to keep most. I feel a connection with them, especially the black and white ones.

There were no estate sale this week worth going to but I won some cool things at auction! Check them out below ๐Ÿ™‚

This is a 1970 Diving Helmet ice cooler. I love the look and the fact that its vintage. I have wanted one of these since I first saw one a few years ago.

This wooden boxย wasย a happy surprise for me as it came in a box lot I won at the auction. It was emptied out of whatever old meter thing was in there and just this awesomely beautiful wooden box was left. Perfect to sit on a shelf and use as a shadow box. I love the industrial look it has and the fact that the glass in uncracked and it has the cool white metal “frame” still inside the glass, I am having a love affair with this box clearly, lol.

I saw this small metal pilot bust at the auction and thought he had a cool look to him so I bid. No one else wanted him so I won ๐Ÿ™‚

These 4 pages are part of a 1920’s scrapbook I won. I simply bid on it because of these car pages which I fell in love with for some reason. They are magazine cutouts and then whoever glued them inside the book painted the car names underneath. I like how the white pating kind of yellowed, that way you can tell these are old:) I was thinking about framing them and putting them up for sale. I think they would look cool hanging on a wall.

Estate sale!!! This was a fun one ๐Ÿ™‚ My dad and I went about 30-45 minutes earlier than opening. We were numbers 8 and 9. By the time it opened up there were 25 more people. Even at 8 and 9 I think we got some of the best stuff. We split up and made a pile and make sure you not only mark your stuff sold you guard it or have an employee guard it. While I was awaiting a total I chased off 7 people from going through my pile that had SOLD stickers all over everything. ย Check out pictures of the estate sale below and some of my finds:)
