As promised, here’s the rest of all this stuff that I bought on the weekend. This is the stuff that will go on Etsy.
A chippy tool or tackle box.
The inside is delightfully rusty. Not sure who will buy it, but it will sell.
A OOAK crocheted Yoda doll. (OOAK = one of a kind)
Yes, really, this is the good stuff.
I love that the needles are blue and gold.
A vintage Mikasa Lodi plate, which was in production 1974-1976. This is my era. I guess that makes me vintage, too.
Six turquoise 1960s Melmac salad plates and one bowl, each of which look brand new. I remember when EVERY ONE had these dishes.
Vintage metal topper golf trophy and metal topper for a tennis trophy. And just for fun a golf wine cork.
A girly hooked rug that I hope to put in a antique mall booth. The picture does not look that great, but the rug is without stains, and in very good condition. I paid $3 for this 4 x 6 rug. Unfortunately it will cost $50 to have it cleaned. For now, it’s headed to the storage unit.
Aren’t these two a cute couple? They are actually salt and paper shakers. They are probably worth about $10-$20.
This is a Banthrico still bank.
It was a give away from Tallahassee Federal Saving back in the 60s.
This is the way that the bank looked in 1966.
It’s the second Banthrico still bank that I’ve found in my thrifting adventure. The first one was a Miami Beach Federal Savings . I sold it for $40.
Just in time for Cinco di Mayo, a hand embroidered card table tablecloth. In the four corners are Southwestern boy, girl and cactus.
Lovely young lady.
Cacti are in the opposite corners and sombreros are on the center of each side.
So everything that I’ve shown you so far, the items in this post AND the items in yesterday’s post, added up to a whopping grand total of $19.50. Pretty good haul, don’t you think?
But the best find of all was peeking out of a bin a books.
He is a late 1950s-1960s Coca-cola Santa made by the Atlanta toy company Rushton Company that was in business from 1917 to 1983.
He’s special because he still has the Coke bottle in his right hand and he’s wearing white boots. I haven’t figured out the importance of the boots, but I will.
There are three similar to him for sale on eBay and Etsy and they are listed for $120 – $135. The last one that sold went for $137.
So, that’s it. Lots of great Christmas stuff, and some fun inventory to add to my shops, wherever they may be.
Grand total – $ 20.00 (plus tax).
