Well, the last month has certainly flown by! I feel like I've neglected to keep you updated here; I've said it before, but I'm much better at posting a quick image to my Facebook page as things happen.
Luckily, you are seeing most of my finds as I enter them into The Etsy 365 Project, but here are some stories you may have missed:
One of the last yard sales of the season netted us some good scores.
Like this super sweet rusty turquoise blue scale, which I bought with the intent to sell. Until I came to my senses, and put it on my desk, where it is staying.
I bought this whole bag of Christmas atrocities because I could see those demonic adorable elves through the plastic. They were item #61 in my Etsy Christmas Countdown listings.
FLEA MARKET THURSDAY
Mr. VJIMT and I were able to do a quick Flea Market Thursday trip together because the schools were closed. Lots of fun!
My BFF and I managed to squeeze in a day of thrifting between work and kid activities. The St. Dymphna statue sold as soon as I posted this image to my Facebook page. I made a pedestal plate out of the Johnson Brothers Christmas dish and that went too. The blue atomic ashtray was listing #331 of The Etsy 365 Project and sold this morning -- cha-ching!
Mr. VJIMT had a break during his teaching gigs and stopped at an antique store. I got some gifts! Like this typewriter:
and this giant Mary statue (I left the baseboard dust there to keep it real).
I blogged about the load of elf/gnome blow molds I found at our school rummage sale, but you didn't see the box I found them in. This is what I saw under one of the tables. I grabbed it and bought the whole thing for double what the church lady wanted without even looking at what was inside.
These large (marked 60 and 80 inches) round Christmas cloths were on top:
This is what it looked like when I got them home -- even Luna likes them! Only two (one Santa and one snowman) were cracked. Five out of the six elves (gnomes?) have sold -- who wants the last one?
