Fun Finds This Weekend

My Blog has moved!   Happy Girl Thrift!    
Please update your blogroll

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!!

Love the pic of your grandson and the pup. I had to pass on a lot of yard sales because of a double header for soccer for my daughter. I thought mom was going to jump out of the car they were so hard to pass up. Good thing you were able to go back to that one.

Veronica,

I find it terribly difficult to drive by a yard sale. Okay.... the professional yard salers.... that have a grage sale every month. I pass them by.

Mammy syder,

Thanks! The sailor is a great vintage find.

Lisa Richardson said...

Hi Liz,

Notice there were NO pics outside of the car. Too busy shopping!!!

I love driving up to really big sales like that. You found some very cool items. I'm sure they'll go quickly.

Lisa Richardson said...

Hi Kimberly! Thanks! I am hoping so!

I don't have a lot of insight except that my girlfriend from MOD Squad Picking had a couple of those heads and some sold quick but others didn't seem to - they were pretty pricy! I found THE MOST FABULOUS 1950's metal garden BBQ that has wheels and looks something like a baby carriage! By the time Jerry finishes with it is will be extraordinary! I can't wait to do before and after!

You find the neatest stuff! I hope your puppy was adopted; he is too cute!
