I have a few Mickey Mouse items that I’m “collecting” in order to offer them for sale on Etsy as a group, (cost: 50 cents, value: $10-15.00).
I plan to use this 100% wool lap blanket at Christmas, either to decorate my home or my antique booth (cost: $1, value: $12-15.00).
The handle on this handbroom is made of Sterling silver, so I scooped it right up (cost: $1.00, value: $15.00). Coro, a well-known, costume jewelry company, manufactured the aqua-colored enamel bracelet. The “Coro” mark, dating the piece to about 1940, can be found on the back of the clasp (cost: 50 cents, value: $8-10.00). The silver tone pin has a green stone (cost: 50 cents, value: $6-8.00). I love the wide, gold tone bracelet, and may be keeping it (cost: 50 cents, value: $10-15.00). Check out this good info on Coro jewely.
Here’s the cover of the box that holds them. On the opposite side of the letter/picture is a list of words for the kids to read, and to identify the word that doesn’t belong.
A cream-colored, pottery teapot, marked “USA” on the bottom (cost: $1.00, value: $15.00).
A lovely pile of vintage clothespins (cost: $1.00 for about 50, value: $3.00 for five, or $30.00 for all 50). I rub some Howard’s Feed-N-Wax on them and then tie them up with a piece of calico and sell them in sets of five.
I’m always intrigued by items I’ve never seen before. This fork-like utensil caught my eye, and for 25 cents, I was able to bring it home with me to present to my online friends. Any ideas?
I selected each of these kitchen utensils from a bin marked “50 cents/item.” The potato masher at the top has wonderful twisted wire sides and a nice wooden handle (value: $8.00). The egg separator (far left), the grater (center), and the Made in Germany scissors are worth about $6.00 each. The cheese grater (bottom) and pastry cutter (bottom right) are worth about $8.00 each.
I always pick up cameras when I see them (if priced right) because my sweet daughter loves them (cost: $1.00 each, value: $5.00 each). They make great stocking stuffers for her.
Bye for now,
