Pyrex Gooseberry Pink serve and store casseroles #472 and #473. Now I just need to find #471! I really limit myself to only collecting certain types of pyrex designs when I can find them at a good price. I pass pyrex pieces up often at auctions because they go higher than I'm willing to pay. I found these beauties all dusty and dirty at the bottom of a box, they cleaned up really cute! Also pictured is an old cast iron soap dish with a star fish and a wooden knife holder with a rooster on it!
This is a 1950's child's twin Cinderella/Prince Charming/Fairy Tale Themed comforter. I loved the novelty fabric and it was to cute to pass up.
Perfect 1950s religious kitsch....St. Jude and Virgin Mary night lights. St. Jude just needs a new bulb! Really, now how could I pass these up?
Yup, I found bakelite...it's only a thin red spacer... but still bakelite and something that's rare to run across at yard sales anymore or thrift shops for that matter. It pays to look at the junk bagged jewelry.
When participating in such a large area of yard sales, it's important to have a plan. I have my established route down fairly well and I stick to certain areas of town that have an older population or houses that I've found something cool at the year before. I don't usually venture into new sub-divisions that have lots of toys or baskets displayed on table tops. I also don't haggle over something priced at just a dollar or two. It's rare to see anything priced at less than a dollar at a yard sale anymore. So, a dollar for something little, like a pyrex dish, is a good deal to me!
