Estate Sale - Margie Ann Story Book Doll and other Fantastic Finds

I ran out to a sale at lunch yesterday thinking that it was going to be a bust, but I was pleasantly surprised at some of the junk I found. I got there a little late so I was sure the best stuff was already gone so I was happy to find a lovely little Margie Ann Story Book Doll in her original box with papers. She is really in great condition (her legs need to be restrung but other than that not a mark on her, oh yeah her hair is kind of wild and could use a little styling). An extra special surprise was the little gift tag still in the box! I haven't done any research yet but thinking maybe from the 1940's.

I dug around in the garage for a while and found a few things out there (but I did have to work for them). Don't you love it when you pick up a box just wondering what might be inside. I spotted a little vintage Christmas box (which I collect and use to display at Christmas) and it was quite heavy for such a small box. I thought there would be some kind of Christmas decor inside but it turned out to have three old rosaries tucked inside (one glows in the dark!).

I also found a few other vintage Christmas items hiding in the garage (to include a German wax Angel in pristine condition).

I really like this old sign, it will be going up on the wall in my Etsy office.

And of course a bunch of other miscellaneous stuff.

It turned out that I brought home much more than I expected. I love it when that happens!!

 Hope you are having a great weekend!
