I just checked the classified ads and it looks like there will be no “yard-sailing” this weekend. That’s probably because there was a city-wide yard sale last weekend. Our town holds these sales about 3 times a year in our climate controlled multi-purpose center so rain and heat aren’t problematic to vendors or shoppers.
Though I have found these city-wide sales to be hit-or-miss in the past, I was rather lucky this time because there seemed to be more vintage vendors than before. Of course, Mom came along to help me spot treasures, carry some of the lighter stuff and visit with acquaintances. She did all three, I might add!
At the first booth, I found 2 pink Pyrex casseroles in the Gooseberry pattern. They have ALREADY SOLD, but I just had to show them to you since there is not an abundance of pink Pyrex in this area.
I also bought this pretty red vase at the same booth. My research has identified it as Fenton! Another red item was this practical enamelware butter warmer/sauce server.
I’ve begun to notice vintage leather bags and I picked up these two satchels. The one on the right is marked Gokey….the other is not marked but has some interesting tooling and braided work.
If you like kitschy kitchen items…..check out this set of yellow plastic salt and pepper shakers in a matching wall holder. I’m guessing that is a golden apple?
I could not pass up this small chalkware plaque of Raggedy Andy and a child’s Pyrex mug with a fun train motif.
We started our shopping spree with Pyrex and ended with Pyrex. A Spring Blossom Green oval casserole was the last item added to our shopping bag.
Does your town hold city-wide sales?
