The biggest indoor garage sale in the world? I think not.....

This past Saturday we had an indoor garage sale at our fairgrounds, supposedly the biggest in the world....well, I knew better but couldn't resist going. You never know when you'll find a bargain or even the start of a new collection. The cute little bag above was $5, it was dirty but now it's very clean! I'm somewhat of a clean freak when I buy things at a garage/estate sale, or even on ebay. The first thing I do is clean them! Anyone else have this habit? I actually enjoy doing it, there I said it, now you can all know how wierd I am!
So every once in a while I come across some old player piano music rolls, and sure enough there were some here too, pretty mundane looking except for this one roll, check out the box!
The woman tried to get me to buy all the rolls, there were about 6 more, but the boxes were plain so I wasn't interested....but give me a box with cool graphics like these and I'm all over it!
The music is "Tea for Two" so I thought that was kinda sweet too, I'll get more and display them in some cool fashion, hopefully my dh won't have me committed......
Then I found a sweet lady selling all kinds of very small items, including what's pictured above and below. Love it all, especially the little Sacred Heart find.....it's so sweet.
So that was the extent of my haul from this "huge" garage sale.
I'm pretty happy with what I found.....
Til next time....

Great finds! I love the bag!! There is one like it I have been keeping my eye on for the longest time but I'm unwilling to pay $25 for it!! Yours was a great bargain!
