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.
I 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.
At the same sale as the earrings I bought this ring set. It is still in the original 1977 Avon box. Who doesn’t need a “Color Go Round, Convertible Ring”? And I especially need all the yellow tones it came with.
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!
