First Great Yard Sale Day of the Year!

I couldn't resist popping in to share a few photos -- first great yard sale (and estate sale) day of the year!  I love treasure hunting for my shop (Birdhouse Books) ... there is always the great thrill of fun finds!

Vintage dachshund salt and pepper shakers and the cutest little pewter dachshund.  These are mine (not for sale!) and already in a place of honor in my study.  I purchased these from the nicest man who also is a dachshund person.  My friend and I had our phones out sharing dachshund pictures back and forth with him.

Vintage Christmas magazines - love the ads and recipes in these. 

 A new Silvestri Christmas tray (star shaped Santa Claus).

Vintage This is Atlanta book with a glimpse of the city in the 1970's ... and an old brochure that included an advertisement for Davison's department store at Lenox Square.

 A cute Burma Shave sign book, vintage Christmas decals, vintage holiday drinks cookbook.

A stack of "Patio Daddio" style Mid Century BBQ books.

Vintage Betty Crocker Cookbook with "pie cover."

Vintage Christmas cards!  This is a basket full -- many are unused.  They are gorgeous.

 Boxes of unused vintage Christmas cards.

Not a purchase, but gorgeous -- an old Hudson Hornet car.  My yard sale friend is antique car obsessed, and he snapped this pic.

Are yard sales out in your area yet?  I'd love to hear from you in the comments, below.
