Peach Tree 23 - 44 Mile Yard Sale

Mom and I had a really fun day yesterday. We went to the Peach Tree 23 44 Mile Yard Sale. We have done this several times in the past but it has been a couple of years since we last attended.

Our trip started off in Edgefield SC and ended in Ridge Springs SC (where we got a scoop of homemade Peach Ice Cream - my favorite). I really wished I would have taken some pictures along the way but I was driving and too focused on finding some good junk!

Anyway here are some of the things I brought home with me:

I love these two stereoviews, the subject matter appealed to me. Love the little office and will probably keep one to display in my Etsy office and sell the other. Hmmm, which one to keep?

For some reason I have started collecting old Wedding Photos, I love to see the different fashions depending on the era. 

An old Pepsi Drink Carrier.

Love this Sterling Charm Bracelet, one of the charms says "Mad Money" and has dollar bill in it, another is engraved with a name and a date of 1950.

I don't know, I just liked it (it has the word FARM on it and it's all beat up - what's not to like). It appears to be some kind of historical marker.

So this cat - I know nothing about him but he was too cute to pass up. He looks to be Chalkware maybe? and is very tiny. Looks to be from around the 1930's to me based on style of the cat.

I love to buy these types of things for my desk. Really like this paperweight.

Can always use glass tops for apothecary jars.

Such a pretty pair!

So I guess this is the vintage equivalent of a fidget spinner.

Copper Letter Press.

The vintage card box was free! I will use as part of my Christmas Decor!

Sweet little Choir! Japan

Round Genuine Leather Box made in Italy and old Swank box underneath.

I thought these books were just beautiful. Great for displaying around the house.

I found 3 more vintage T shirts (I hope they sell as well as the others I listed a couple of months ago).

Some old Barbie and Ken Doll clothes.

I think my favorite find yesterday was this Dancing Chicken Painting by Ernest Lee (SC Artist) and I can't wait to get it up on my wall! Isn't she just adorable!

I had such a wonderful time and am so blessed to have the most wonderful junking partner ever. We had a blast and will be putting this on our calendar for next year.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

  1. I love those sweet books. The images still seem so bright and legible. If I see books of this age by women, I pick them up. I suppose it was rare way back then for women's fiction to be published. Thank you for sharing all your finds and stories.

    Donna, of Distressed Donna Downhome blog, said she went to the long yard sale, too. She became ill and had to go home, though. You may be close to her and might be able to meet. She's a sweetie. My wife and I "rode the ridge" with her last August, so I'm kind of familiar with the area. She treated us to peach ice cream at the end. Yum! We had a great time. Donna has a booth or two at The Riverfront Antique Mall out in North Augusta, SC. Happy trails to you!
