Tisn’t the Season!

Tisn’t the season for yard sales, that is! 

In my last post, I showed you some things I found at yard sales on Black Friday. Since then the sales have slowed down to a crawl. However, last weekend I was pleasantly surprised to see ads for a couple of sales in a neighboring community. Mom and I decided to check them out and here’s what we found……

A large McCoy hobnail planter along with several pieces of silverplate flatware….

Most of them were serving pieces, like pastry servers….

But this Mappin and Webb sandwich server was definitely the most interesting…

I love these little Libbey juice glasses. If you like to collect these, just notice that some have silver wheat and others have silver leaves. I think it’s OK to combine them!

This little Santa gave me a star for finding a #401 Pyrex Spring Blossom Green bowl….

A “grab bag” full of vintage ornaments was a fun find. Most of them were still in their original Kmart packaging and were made in either Taiwan or Hong Kong.

This little felted Santa was one of the things that caught my eye through the bag; but when I freed him, it looked like his hands/mittens are missing…..I guess he’s really going to have to rely on Rudolph to guide that sleigh on Christmas Eve!

Are there still yard sales in your “neck of the woods”?

Black Friday Yard Sales!

No one would have a yard sale on Black Friday, would they? Well…YES….and I can’t believe all the vintage goodies I found. Here are some of the best items…..

Jelly glasses…….

There were actually six of these!

A Pepsi 16 crate, flamingo pink Pyrex loaf pan and a Hattiesburg Creamery milk bottle (Hattiesburg is about 30 miles away)…..

20+ pieces of Golden Wheat china….

Mom found a vintage 18” ceramic Christmas tree….

I've already added it to the booth.

And some cute Santa cups, a Santa mug and a snowflake tumbler….

This is my kind of Black Friday shopping!!!

November was a very busy time in my booth.
Remember my turquoise and red tabletop display? 

Well….there’s no more turquoise and less red, so I redecorated the table with jadeite and red.....

If you would like to do a little “window shopping” in my booth, follow my Pinterest board titled “Available in Back2Vintage booth. Virtual shopping can be fun, too!!!
