Last weekend Mom and I had our weekly thrift date on Saturday Morning and I came home with a bunch of goodies - all for resale. I need to make about $150 more in our fun fund to cover our fishing charter this year and these guys will help with that. I love thrifting/garage saling so this really isn't anything I wouldn't already be doing and I make a few bucks at it. The small nymph planter above was in pretty good condition - but when I bought it I missed the fact that it had 2 chips. I sold it with full disclosure and made 3x my money. I would have made a lot more had it been chip free though.
These little vintage owl salt and pepper shakers are so cute - for .50 I had to bring them home. If they don't sell I would be more than happy to keep them.
My favorite recent find was this record from 1969 which is a recording of the astronauts moon landing. We haven't had time to listen to it yet but it is not very common. The record is in perfect shape and the album cover has minor wear. The moon landing occured one month before I was born so it is etched in my brain forever - the summer of 1969 was epic!
If I found 100 of these Bing Crosby Merry Christmas albums I could sell every one around Christmas time. I've sold it twice before. This one is in very good condition, the album glue is coming loose but I can fix that. Both these records together were a whopping .25 cents so likely I will make a few bucks from each of them.
The only thing I brought home that day for myself were a couple of books for reading - the rest will hopefully sold off for some fun!
This weekend we are off to Edmonton for a couple of days to go to an 80th party for hubby's Aunt. We haven't seen her since we moved so it will be really nice to reconnect with her and a bunch of our other relatives. We will also see 3 of the 4 kids (4th lives in Ottawa now) so we are looking forward to it!
