New scores..

I had the chance to hit a few yard sales over the Labor Day weekend. And I really scored. I found this Santa Tootsie Roll Container (I don't think it's really old...but I love it). I also got a box of glass ornaments for 50cents, a set of vintage reineer made by Dakin (these were in a metal type sleigh). I also got a set of Empire Candle Stick Blowmolds made in 1973 for 50cents. And a wonderful Santa Print by Ron Iverson. My sister called me to tell me that she was at a sale and found this really old Christmas Tree Stand. She asked if I wanted it and stressed how old it looked. Not knowing what the heck I would need it for I asked her what the price was. She said $5.00...so I said what the heck go ahead and pick it up. I guess once I see it if I don't need it I can resell on Ebay or something. Well her s/o is always giving me crap because I am soooo "Christmas Crazy" he was actually teasing me when they dropped it off to me a couple of days later. Well needless to say I am actually the last one laughing here. I got online and typed in the name that was on the tree stand box. Which is a Penetray Deluxe Animated Musical Christmas Tree Turner. My eyes about popped out of my head when I found the exact same thing on a antique website online. Although this stand had been sold it showed what it had sold for and it was 675.00!!!!! OMG!!! Anyhow...I had to call my sister and her man to tell them. I asked them if they were sitting down...*L* And then told them what I found out about my HA HA HA More Christmas Stuff, You Don't need it.....Christmas Stand...Looks as if I got the last laugh here! =)
Anyhow...adding a few pics. to share with you all!

WOW Annette! I'd say that you got the last laugh on that Christmas stand . That is an awesome steal of a deal.

I too went to some yard sale's today. There was a neighborhood subdivision sale this morning .There were around 20- 30 sale's .Maybe more ,maybe less. I found some Christmas stuff and a 7 and a half foot tree . The tree was 67.00 when it was bought new and we got it for $15.00. A real full tree.

I will post picture's tomorrow .

Annette I posted on PC about the Ron Iverson print .

Oh I plan to keep it for now. I will have to check to see if the tree I got last year will fit it. If not I guess I will have to buy a new tree....*L* I was hoping to have up 2 large trees but since our home renovations are taking longer than I expected I won't have room for 2 this year...darn it!
