Cool Yardsale Finds!

Posted by Kathy Torrence on May 20, 2007 in Yardsale Finds |

While we were camping this weekend, I found a few unique items at a church yardsale just outside of our campground.  Both of these were purchased from the sweetest little old man – he said he was 85 years old and just loved to chat!

I got these really cool vintage thumbtacks:

They have numbers on them and were used as window markers to mark which window went into which opening.  I think they’d be great on a card with the number matching a specific birthday.

On the right is also a little container with two dice – probably from an old baseball board game.   Thought I could use these as an embellishment on some baseball project someday.

I also bought this item from him:

Doesn’t look like much from the outside, but it’s hinged on the left and inside are lots of pages of vintage ephemera:

These are color pages from the Philadelphia Inquirer from the 1950s – 60s.  There are a whole bunch of pages inside – I can’t wait to find a project for them!

Oh – and this was also in the book:

It’s an old Phillies poster – my husband thinks it’s from the late 1980s-early 1990s.  Maybe I can list it on eBay and some sort of collector would be interested in it…

It appears as though the poster is from 1993 (a special year for the Phillies as they went to the WS). Google is our friend.
