Fun Finds This Weekend

 My Blog Has Moved:  Happy Girl Thrift

Be sure to visit me :)    Please update new web address
Thanks so much ! 



The weekends go by so darn fast, don't they? This past Saturday, I passed by a large yard sale on the way to an adoption event for my foster pups. I dropped off the pups(with the help of my grandson) and we headed over to the yard sale.


Here is a picture of yard sale from the front seat of car.



Not the best picture, but it gives you a visual. There were two rows of tables with lots of cool stuff.

I did get some of it listed this weekend:


Marwal head. I don't have much experience with these....
But I bought both. They are striking!

This little bank is the 40's-50's. It was an advertisement for Seamen's bank. My research tells me that McCoy made them. Do you have any insight?

Can never resist a mug. Ever.



To carry on the calvacade theme... Sheet music of George M Cohan. Love the James Cagney movie " Yankee Doodle Dandy"!


There were a few more items that I picked up. Will post them later this week.

Hope you found lots of cool stuff too!!

Happy Saturday!






Still not much thrifting going on here.  But that is okay.  It is hard to do something well when you are not motivated.  I do have lots to list so I can stay busy with that.  I just have to get started.  There have been some distractions this week.  Most of them involving settling my mom's estate.  You just never know the secrets that are waiting to be discovered. 

Fall is in the air here in Central Florida.  The temps are more manageable and the humidity is decent.  I cannot wait for the cool weather to finally get here.  The heat this year was intense!

Today the foster pups are going to an adoption event.  I hope they find their forever home.  They are both so darn cute that if they stay much longer I may have to just keep them!






We have a ladies luncheon at church today.  My daughter, granddaughter and myself are going.  I think it will be great fun.   The church ladies (in our Sunday School class)  have opened their hearts to us and we are blessed to be a part of their group.

The Church Ladies!

I Got Nothing!

This pic doesn't make sense for this post, but I love it!

 

It is unusual that I have not been thrifting for the last few days. I have not had the desire to look at all. There is definitely NO listing going on. Man, you have to be consistent thrifting and listing to make a buck or two! There have been other things going on that have needed my attention.

 

I am looking forward to things settling down so I can get back in the thrifting groove again.

 

Have you all ever " hit a wall" with your thrifting and re-selling? What do you do to get out of the funk? Please share!!

Slow Week: Time To Get Busy


One of my National Geographic Maps sold


This week has been a slow week  for me.  Sales are slow, and I am definitely falling behind in my listings.  Good golly, I  have so much stuff to list that I need to get back to it.  Not to mention the boxes of stuff that is at my mom's house that I need to list.  Or just have a garage sale.  I could have two garages sales.  One at each house.  I certainly have enough stuff to have one here  and at my moms.

  At my mom's house, there is four shelves of boxes of Early American Prescut. 
  And there is a collection of her first dinnerware.
 Autumn Gold Wheat 
This is a picture of the pattern.  She had acquired a whole set. 


There are boxes of her other stuff too.  Right now it is just too hot to mess with it.  The heat and humidity sucks the life right out of you.

Tomorrow will be busy.  I have to take my two foster pups to an adoption event.  They are two little dogs, one a Chihuahua (Buddy) and the other is a chihuahua mix (Penny).  Both of the pups are adorable and I sure hope they find good homes tomorrow.

This is Buddy


This is Penny

Tomorrow will be busy.  While the pups are at the event, I will try to hit up a garage sale or two.  I know I don't need any thing, but it is always fun to hunt for the treasures.

What is on you agenda for tomorrow?
