Thrifty Finds – May 24

Crocheted Yo yo Doll a

I really enjoy finding larger items.  Yes, they are harder to ship because I have to find larger boxes and more packing materials, but I have found I like to deal with the larger items more than the smalls. Shipping no longer intimidates me. You may have noticed many of my items that I posst are larger — typewriters, globes, and luggage pieces.  Today I thought I would show you a couple of my smaller items I purchased recently.

This doll is called a yo-yo doll.  They were popular in the 60s and 70s.  The lady I bought it from was adorable.  She was so proud of this doll.  She said she made it in the 70s.  She was getting rid of her stuff, and no one wanted it.  I think she was happy that someone did want it.  My Mom crochets.  I don’t she ever made one of these dolls, but I could see her doing it.  I love the multicolored pieces of the body.  Oh and the face of this doll, so cute.

Brass Pigs a

I admit this was one of the purchases I am not really sure why I bought. This is brass pig family.  I am so not into pigs.  Did I tell you that my family had pigs when I was really little.  I remember shucking corn for them.  I was probably 5 when my Dad got rid of them.  Yeah, they stunk.

Mickey Mouse Peekaboo a

I am not a Mickey Mouse collector.  One sale I stopped at had two large tables of Mickey Mouse stuff she collected in the 70s and 80s.  The only thing I bought was this little Mickey Mouse musical wind-up toy that plays Brahms Lullaby.  I love that lullaby.  Her prices were reasonable, so someone who loves Mickey was a happy person when they found her sale.

Mickey Mouse Glasses 2000 a

These McDonald’s Mickey Mouse Millenium glasses were at another sale.  They looked brand new.

Mickey Cake Pan

Ok I just said I wasn’t into Mickey, but here is my third Mickey item. This cake pan was in an auction box I won for another item.  I was looking on Ebay and cake pans sell well. I will clean this one up and list it there.

Horseshoe man

I also like to buy unusual items.  The woman said her husband made this horseshoe man.  Living near the Badlands and Roughrider Country, I can bet he did. It would look great in a man cave.

So do you buy small or large items?  Breakable and not breakable?  Or whatever strikes your fancy?
