A Midwinter Rummage Sale Haul

January 20, 2017

It was a great morning for a rummage sale!  

We are in the midst of a January thaw way up here in northern Minnesota.  Here's what I got for $22 today at a local non-profit's rummage sale.

This was the best buy of the day for $2, a DollyDale Feed Scoop with 5 lb scale.  I have never seen a scoop with a scale before in my rummaging, thrifting and/or junking.

It might be a fun piece in a farmhouse kitchen!

I thought this vintage style, two tiered, end table was a great buy at $6.  I plan to upcycle it with paint.

All of these items were under a dollar.  A very long handled potato masher, a small stoneware vintage crock, and a desktop bookcase/holder.

A small souvenir paddle that will become cabin decor, a Wagner Ware vintage cast iron fry pan, and a wooden display board, (that I am not quite sure what it originally displayed) but I plan to change it up.

Milton Bradley division flash cards from 1963, a shiny brass wall pocket and cracked cutting board. I hope to repurpose/upcycle the cutting board and wall pocket.

Three galvanized envelope shaped metal wall hangers.  I have plans for these already.  Like new $1 each.

A vintage McCoy Turtle planter, (my mom had one of these that she probably sold at a rummage sale, LOL)  a 1983 decorative fruit cake tin, and a navy blue tole painted candlestick marked Ukraine.

And another sleeve ironing board.  These make fun laundry room signs or even shelves, and a funky dated wooden candelabra that needs an update.

I hope you enjoyed sharing my midwinter rummage sale $22 haul!
Thanks for reading my blog, Carlene

  1. What a lot of fun items! Love the McCoy turtle and that long handled potato masher.

  2. Love seeing what you got. I went thrifting today. Once place had a sale where if you purchased $20 you could get an additional $20 in merchandise. We had no problem collecting that much! At the other place, I found a very vintage/antique? Viewmaster for $5. I consider myself a very lucky woman. We had a great time at both places! We are mostly buying stuff to use in our house.

    You got quite a nice haul, too. The McCoy turtle is my favorite! Thank you for showing what you got!
