Last week I showed you some of the cool things I got at a tag sale in our neighboring town. I had the best luck for finding vintage items in the one neighborhood I spent my morning, especially at this one sale. These vintage canisters are in great shape.
I had the best time chatting with the woman holding this sale. She was surprised at the items people were buying. She had cleaned out her attic which meant a lucky day for those hunting vintage treasures such as these old games,
Have you ever seen one of these before? I hadn’t and had to have its use explained to me. The sweet homeowner told me she had that item in her den for as long as she could remember. I also picked up several vintage catalogs, manuals and old knitting pattern books. Here are just a few pictures,
I love looking through these! I found many fun things at this one sale, but I would have to say that the conversation I had with the homeowner was my favorite part. Her children were minding the items in the driveway so she and I could chat it up in the garage as I looked through her sale items and heard the history on many of them. She is a lifelong resident of our county and the type of sweet southern lady our county was once filled with. It was a true vintage experience in more ways than one.
The stop around the corner had the cutest little pug dog. He was a major attraction at that sale where I found some lovely vintage printed linen table runners and a linen tea towel from 1967.
My last stop for the morning was a big sale with an estate sale feel to it with lots of items belonging to the father of one of the sellers. I came away with this interesting wooden box, vintage round hotpads, clear salt and pepper shakers, and rings to turn your candleholder into a flower holder, too.
Thanks for stopping by to see the rest of the Tag Sale items. If you haven’t seen part one, you can go here.
