Vintage Electric Angel Tree Topper. I can't remember what I paid for this. Sold for 22.95 plus shipping. Christmas type sales are picking up. I also sold a lot of satin beaded ornaments this week and a set of Santa nesting dolls last week.
I had been picking up vintage tablecloths for a while and had amassed a pile that was just sitting and sitting as I didn't want to list them. Why? I was thinking it was going to be this huge job of measuring each one and meticulously going over them for stains and holes. I could see without much work that some had stains. Finally I did my research and ended up listing them as a lot of mixed sizes as is with some stains and holes. I still got 45 dollars plus shipping for 9 tablecloths. If they are pristine you can get around 10 a piece for them. People buy them both to use and to repurpose in crafts. I love their bright colors and patterns.
Finally yesterday I hit a church/school sale. I've got a method now where I go at the end of the day for the bag sale. At yesterday's I got some great items for 3 dollars a bag. This is my new favorite source that I'll be looking for each weekend. Indoors. Cheap. Huge variety of things. I just have to be careful to leave those items behind that I know are only going to net a few bucks. It's hard! and I fail sometimes. They had a whole table of religious items which I scooped up. I'm hoping there is something interesting in the bunch.
My primary source is thrift stores but church sales are closing in. I hope they last all winter. What is your favorite source? Estate sales, rummage, thrift stores or church sales? Or other?
