It was hard to choose 10 favorite finds for this year. Next year, I'm going to write down my favorites when I get them so I don't have to look back over 100+ blogs. Some of these items I have kept, most have sold and a few are still for sale. Here they are in no particular order.
#1. Vintage library card catalogue.
I have always wanted one of these and found it at a consignment shop. I almost didn't get it as I was uncertain whether I wanted to pay $40 something for one missing a drawer. I'm glad I went back and got it. My hubby added wheels so I could easily move it by myself.
#2 Kitchen cart
I saw this on a preview page for an estate sale. I wasn't able to make it to the sale and a few days later, it showed up at the thrift store by my house. I think I paid about $10
#3 Mohair Paddington Bear
I found him recently. This is not your mass produced bear but one handmade by Gabrielle Designs in England. He is currently for sale in my Ebay store.
#4 Lot of vintage little Golden books
I found these at a church tag sale. Some of them are 1st editions. Most have sold and some are still up for sale on Ebay.
#5 Big Hug mug
By the time I found this, the novelty had worn off and prices dropped on Ebay. I did manage to get $45 for it on Etsy.
#6 Vintage Bert and Ernie hand puppets
These have the rubber face and hands with the cloth body. I sold them on Ebay back in October for $99.98
#7 Henry Dogs
I found 2 Henry's this year and 1 Henerietta All 3 have sold.
#8 Hot Dog skateboard by Sears & Roebuck
It's a little beat up but I'm still holding out hope there is someone who needs to have this item. It is currently listed on Ebay with the Best Offer option.
#9 Vintage sewing table
I don't know how to sew so I am using this as a desk for my computer
#10 Last but not least: My velvet painting
I think I paid about $14 for this. It is pretty big. I love the cabin
