A Sampling of Tag Sale Finds

It was beautiful and sunny in my part of the world this weekend. I took a vacation day on Thursday since that was supposed to be the very best day temperature-wise, and it was! Although I worked on Friday, it did give me the feel of almost having a long weekend anyway.

We hit quite a few tag sales Saturday and I got some awesome finds. Here is just a sampling of what I bought.

Some vintage items for my new Etsy shop, Maple Street Treasures.

A great wooden bowl, some kitchen utensils, buscuit cutters, and some books.
Some cool flower pots.
Also vintage although not quite as old as the other items.
I also found a great assortment of craft items. I’ll be keeping some of these and giving some to my fellow “crafties”.

Group shot of the great goodies!
An assortment of zippers... all for just $.50!
Can you believe what a great find this is?
A whole baotload of maps! Can you guess what I'll be doing with these?
I'll show you in a future post.
A bunch of brand new craft scissors in different scalloped patterns.
I’ll check the ones I’ve got and give away the duplicates.

And glitter!
Hmmm, I think I know someone who might like the glitter.

Oh, and I forgot to take a close up picture of the little spool of Daisy trim that you can barely make out in the center of the group photo. This is going to be perfect for some throw pillows I’m making. They will be featured in a future post as well.

So there, now there are more posts for you to look forward to. It seems I have more post ideas than I have time to write actually write them!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
