Yard Saleing 90's style

It was odd to see a sign for a garage sale on a Sunday. That is rare around these parts, but there it was. Troy had already stopped on his way home and in his great wisdom, knew that I would love it, so we headed back. The best part was the prices...wow... it reminded me of when I was in my late teens and would hit the sales every weekend with a few deal lovin friends.


Fire King bowls .75

Square Melmac dishes $3 for a zillion of them

Glass Salt and Pepper shakers $.50 each

Blue flowered fire king $.50
Pretty in fuchsia tea cups and flowered dish $.15

3 vintage pillow cases $.25 each

Shoe stretchers $1.00

Basket of brayers $.25 (can't say I love the basket though)

All together the total including a new light fixture for the boys room $9.75
Now what in the world am I going to do with all this Melmac?

Hi Natasha, a fun day of yardsaling you had. I love all the Fireking. My mom has some with the blue flowers - kind of catapults a person back in time when they see stuff they grew up with. Thanks for visiting me today - I haven't made a purchase yet, but those Wellies sure are fun. Hope you're doing well!

Oh, I would LOVE to find some of the white dishes with the blue flower offset on it. My grandparents have the entire set and seeing them remind me of summers spent at their house.

Holy moley! Those are some awesome finds. The salt and pepper shakers remind me of a man I see ALL over town at garage sales....his first question at each garage sale is "do you have any glass salt and pepper shakers"...Hubby said next time we have a garage sale we should go to Goodwill and buy a whole box just so we can answer "YES"!!!

Wow, you picked up so very lovely bargains! I've got the sheets to match that beautiful white with flowers pillowcase you bought. Love that vintage look.

I have been picking up melmac to use for camping trips and picnics. I store it in the picnic basket so it is always ready to go.

My mother actually had those Fire King bowls when I was growing up. I'm thinking 1970s?
Thanks for being one of the eleven people who visit my blog. I hope you got the CVS deal, LOL!
BTW, your prize is in a package, ready to go to the Post Office. I hope to have it out by Thursday!
