After the Estate sale me, Mom and our guest junker Van (my sister) went over to our favorite little Junk store in North Augusta and I found a few more treasures. I managed to snag this adorable vintage doll cradle, some occupied Japan pieces, cocktail stirrers, match holder, and a Franz Swaty Barber hone (I think these were used to sharpen straight razors).
We still had not had enough so we continued on with our quest to find more junk!.
I am thinking about going out in the morning to check out a few more sales (probably should stay home - but what fun would that be).
I did go out this morning but only ended up going to one sale. I had planned to go to about three or four but spent my budget at the first sale. I am pretty happy with my purchase. A lady was selling off her mother's things and even though there wasn't a lot of stuff the back bedroom was full of vintage toys. I bought 3 boxes full. I was taking a chance as I don't know that much about vintage toys but the lady said the toys were from the 1940's (maybe some earlier). I had to fend off three or four guys that wanted to dig through the boxes. I bargained the price down a little and then went over to mom's and had breakfast. We looked through all the toys and I couldn't wait to get home and do a little research. There were a ton of Britains Ltd. lead figures. My favorites are the circus people especially the stilt walkers. There was a total of 241 pieces in the boxes. After doing some research I am very happy with my toys!
The Circus pieces date to around 1948
The Hunt - not sure of the date
The Cowboys & Indians
There are so many more adorable pieces but I couldn't include them all so if you want to see more you can go to our Facebook page here.
Hope you all have found great treasures this weekend!
