I got Cooties at a Yard Sale

I have been so junk sick! It has been two weeks since I have had the opportunity to go out junking. I ran through the ads last night and made a plan to hit some yard sales today. I didn't really expect to find much but was determined to get out and find something, anything to satisfy my craving. The first sale I stopped at was the best and I bought most of my stuff there. The guy was moving and he was a collector so he had some good stuff (well my kind of stuff). The first thing I spotted was a Cootie's Game in the original box complete with all the pieces. I don't know about you but I remember playing this game.

I also found a 1951 City of Augusta Traffic Code Book that will go in my Augusta collection. I am always excited when I find a little piece of Augusta History. (I love the Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Officer).

This guy had a lot of ephemera and I got quite a few really cute pieces! The sandwich booklet is from 1936. The hospital booklet has a very scary looking Nursing Staff.

I also found a few vintage toys. Yabba Dabba Doo! Vintage Flinestones play money!

Some sterling thimbles.

After I wrapped up there I headed to the second day of an estate sale and the pickings were slim! I only bought two items there, this wonderful Sam and the Firefly book and some vintage glitter from Fat Man's. I may save the book for my Red Headed Girls.

I also bought this hand display for Mom (it's not old but will be a great display for her jewelry).

I think I am satisfied (for now anyway!). 

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

  5. Okay...that Cootie game just went on my Must Find list! It's awesome!


  6. Wow, that looks like you had fun! My younger sister had Cootie, but it was a newer version and I'm not sure we ever played a full game of it, just put the bugs together.
