Garage Sale Season Is Here, Garage Sale Season Is Here!!!

On Saturday I got out to a few garage sales. Just the sound of that makes me happy. Yes, garage sale season is upon us!

Now if I could only say that I found a lot of really cool stuff. I did find a little bit though and if I found everything on the first Saturday of the season, then what fun would that be?

I found this adorable little bitty Baby Brownie camera, the Special edition, which was produced from 1939 - 1954.


This thing is small at only 2 1/2 inches wide and 3 inches tall. It has been on my bucket list of cameras that I want to own, so I can mark that one off.

A little chicken which says Japan on the bottom. I have a hard time passing up a china chicken statue for some reason. They just call to the kitschy side of me. Who am I kidding, Kitsch is my middle name.


A cloth bag that Bob Evans sausage came in. I don't think this is vintage, but I can't remember the last time I saw a bag o'sausage at the grocery store.


And this dorky little donkey that I am hoping to put in my terrarium, if ever I make one. You have heard that terrariums are on a comeback, right?


So a nice little start to the season. Did you do any garage sale-ing this weekend?

  1. Very few sales here, so far... I wish the weather would get warm and stay that way, then people wouldn't be afraid to get wet! LOL As for me, I'm always open for yard sale shopping, regardless of the weather! Love your new camera- I sure hope I can find some "new" ones this season. :-) Sue

  3. I'm so excited about garage sale season, too! You found some wonderful items. I have that Baby Brownie Special in my collection, but it's really beat up. I'd like to find one in better condition. Good luck with that, huh?

  4. No garage sales here yet! It is still too cold and the weather is too unpredictable. I love your finds though. That donkey is just hysterical. My gdaughter and I made a terrarium about 3 weeks ago and it looks great. She loved doing it- xo Diana

  7. Yep - I did. I found an old toy typewriter and a large stack of old sheet music. Planning to post some pics tonight - but I spent less than $10 on both items. Yaaay!

    I love your sweet little donkey.

  8. You got that sweet camera at a garage sale. I love it. It must be tiny. Like the donkey and the rooster as well. I saw a couple of garage sale signs this week-end so they are starting.

  9. I can't wait until I have more mobility. I've been missing my thrifting adventures. My husband isn't missing them though. That camera is just fantastic and I have a "small" collection of chickens. Have fun creating that terrarium. They are definitely popular again.

  17. A Bag-O-Sausage??? I can say that's new to me, our Pork Roll comes in cloth but you'd never see it intact like that-interesting:@)

  18. Some really great find, I don't ever remember seeing Bob Evans Sausage coming in a bag? I want one!

  19. 1) Until you make your terrarium, you can stick him in a potted plant!
    2) Those apple branches are STUNNING against that chalkboard backdrop.
    3) I am cheering you on that you WILL find a steal of Turkish olive bucket this garage sale season!

  21. OH that little camera is ADORABLE! It's now on MY bucket list! And I'm a closet terrarium lover -- the little donkey will be perfect! I just love the 'smallness' of the plants and rocks and 'stuff' in them!

  31. I haven't seen any garage sales yet in my area...but hopefully soon. I love the little rooster and the donkey; he's so cute! I've been seeing things for terrariums everywhere lately, or 'fairy gardens'. They seem to be "in" again. Thank you also for your kind comment on my blog post about my father's passing away. I appreciated it very much.
