Yesterday's Yard Sale Finds

Rib Mountain had their annual community garage sales yesterday and I believe over 80 homes participated. Of course, we didn't make it to all of them but we did find some fantastic things.

Stunning Starburst Clock (keeping for myself) $2 and it works!

Some hot rollers and free crucifix

Why yes, those are the coveted Remington Tight Rollers in the back. I listed them last night and they sold within a few hours for $89.99 with free shipping. They are new in the box.

A toy train for Ryker, some Pink Dogs, a MMPR figure, and TMNT and what is in that brown case?

I did not get the brown case at a yard sale. I bought it at Goodwill. I knew right away what it was when I saw it. It is an Olivetti Portable typewriter made in Italy. The case is in poor condition but the typewriter seems to have been well taken care of. The ribbon is broken but the keys do not stick. I think my sister wanted this but I spotted it before her. I don't think she knew what it was until I opened it.

Unless otherwise noted, most of my finds are for sale in my Ebay store


  1. That clock is AH-MAY-ZING!!I love it!

  2. Love the clock. Great finds especially the rollers.

  3. Those are GREAT finds! I LOVE the clock! I went to yard sales this morning, but found nothing! Bummer.

  4. Becky,

  5. That clock might be worth some money, especially if it is vintage...
