Hot Finds From The World’s Longest Yard Sale



The temps were hot up and down Hwy 127 last week at The World’s Longest Yard Sale, but the treasure-hunting was hot, too!!!


Here’s a few of the things that I purchased……

One of my first finds was the red stool with slide-out steps. I also bought a Coca-Cola case, cast iron cornbread stick pan, chicken waterer, blue Ball fruit jar and a couple of potato mashers.



If you have a thing for pink, I found two pink/white Pyrex Gooseberry casseroles. They didn’t have lids, but I already had the lids! The salt and pepper set is also Pyrex and the sugar shaker is made by Federal.



Two children’s textbooks called out to me; one is a reader, the other is about music. I also bought a linen/embroidery doily and some sweet vintage postcards.



One of my favorite finds was the aqua twin bird planter. It’s not marked, so unfortunately I don’t know the marker. Many of you are fans of ironstone, so I know you’ll like the large pitcher I found. It’s chipped and crazed a bit, but I think it’s beautiful. I also found an English salt/pepper/oil/vinegar set in a silver-plated caddy.



And that’s not all……..I’ll have more pictures later!


I’ll be linking to the following parties:

Vintage Thingie Thursday at The Coloradolady
Treasure Hunt Thursday at From My Front Porch to Yours
Thrifty Things Friday at The Thrifty Groove

  8. That book reminds me of my book case, I did inventory a few years ago and currently in the case is 369 early readers type books like what you have in your picture.
    Dick and Jane, Alice and Jerry etc. Even three little black Sambo books. Now if only I could get a buyer for some of my old dolls... the grand children don't want to sleep in the spare bedroom because "they are watching them."

  11. Where were you? Our little stretch was overpriced and uninspiring! Love your haul. Next year all us 127ers should create a button in case we cross paths so we can say hello.

  15. You did great! I love it all. It was too hot for us to go this year. Maybe we will get to go to the Wrap Around Sale in the Fall. It covers some of the same area; and I bought some nice crock there last year. Have a Blessed day.

  16. So far I love all the treasures you found. Those early readers take me back. Pink Pyrex! I never see pink pyrex. When I find my first piece I'm sure to shriek out loud.
    The little bluebird planter is sweet!
