Now that the holidays are over and sunny weather has returned I was eager to get back out on the yard sale hunt. Although yard-saleing may not be in full swing for a few more months, I did locate a few ads, mapped out my route, & set off to see what I could find. First was an "Estate Sale by Sal". Sal & her crew seem to control much of the local estate sale trade. Items tend to be priced a little high, especially when you're primarily interested in resale value. Even so, this sale had nothing of interest. Next stop was a large yard sale, lots of stuff, but again, nothing I wanted. Third stop, small sale, nothing much. Final stop was at an unadvertised estate sale that I spotted signs for. Finally, I found something halfway decent. My finds were modest, but interesting, both for myself and for resale. Yay!
Clockwise from top left we have a ceramic cinnamon jar, made in Germany; a sandy pink CA pottery planter, possibly Bauer; an Everedy Tidbit Set, and some mid mod flower coasters. Not pictured is a Pyrex brown glass loaf pan and an old clipboard that I plan to display vintage book plates on for etsy sales.
Designed to serve such tasty tidbits as olives, pickles, candy, & peanuts and perfect for card parties, backyard BBQs, cocktails, records parties.......and other wild events. A must-have for the mid-century hostess.
A decade later this wood and cork flower-power coaster set by Serv Wood would be a big hit with your guests.
