Garage Sale Fun & Fashion

I haven’t had any big scores recently at sales but I did find a few things within the last few weeks that are worth a quick share.

photo santa planterI found this Santa planter flocked with real fur trim at a garage sale for $1.00. It was made by Napco in 1961. The owner told me that she and her husband purchased the Christmas decoration the first year of their marriage. I like the “Best Wishes” message on the bag Santa is carrying.

photo earringsI’m going to finish up my post with a little fashion starting with, like, this totally rad pair of 1980’s clip-on earrings. Anyone having an 80’s party?

photo 2 (8)Now going way back in fashion to the 1920’s are these feather picks in bright red and pale teal. I found them in a bag with some old hats and asked if I could just buy the feathers. I paid $0.50 for the pair. They may have fancied up a hat, but I’d like to imagine these feathers tucked in the side of a forehead band of a flapper girl complete with wavy bob hairstyle. So pretty!
