Weirdest and Oldest Yard Sale Find !!
When you go to as many yard sales as I did, you come across some very strange things !! The weirdest I would say are my two wooden carved Indians !!! Altho the picture dosen't show their true height, the one standing is about 4 feet hight, the sitting Indian is about 3 feet high,on both bottoms it says Girotti ,St Catherines.Aren't they gorgeous!!!
I have been offered money for them , but its never enough to part with my two fine friends,I just love them, we keep them in the playroom,some day if we get a cottage built that's where I would like to keep them.
My hubby and I actually found those and we offered $20.00 for the two, the lady accepted and so we strapped them in the back seat of our vehicle and off we went to more yard sales, we had people smiling from ear to ear when they would see us drive up with our guests in the back seat. You just never know what you are going to find at yard sales !!
The oldest object I ever found was this book on Abraham Lincoln its written in Finnish and the year is 1883.This came from an estate sale, we bought many many old delightful things,such as jewelry ( are you surprised?) and an old sewing box complete with an old wooden darning thing I am not sure what they are called,I have several old sewing boxes now , they are so much fun to root through,always a hidden treat or two in there,my hubby was so happy to find vintage Heddon lures , oh he was just smiling that day.
You just never know what sort of wonderful treasure you will come home with when you go to yard sales !! Do you have something different that you found on one of your hunts????
