Saturday/Sunday Garage Sale

Time for another Blog Garage Sale
These sales are becoming quite the rage here in blog land. Not only has Mindy been doing it for several weeks (and can be credited for starting it), Cynthia has jumped on board with a Sat/Sun Sale. Be sure to go over to their blogs and see what they've got, after you shop mine of course ;)
If you see something you like email me. Just click the link "email me" and I'll work out the details with you. I prefer Paypal, but will accept Money Orders.

I've added shipping rate codes to each item, to give you a ballpark idea of what shipping will cost. Final shipping will be determined by your destination. See rate codes at the bottom of this post. When inquiring about an item, be sure to include your zip code.

Wonderful old enamel porcelain number signs or badge (only # 302 & 207 available). I believe these are hotel room door markers. Has a great shape and wonderful details. Has a hole at the top and bottom for screw attachment. 2.5" wide and tall. These are rare, so don't let this one pass you by. This item is old and has some discoloration around the edges, as one would expect from something that has been around awhile. $12.50 ea, Shipping rate code 1

Typewrite Hammer set $5.00. My project idea for this item, was to mount it to a board, and hang it on the wall as a shelf for a plate or a clock. Never could get excited about doing it though.

Shipping rate code will be the lower end of code 3

Bags of small wooden shapes, $1 for all, Shipping rate code low end of 3

This is a great piece, from my latest trip to Canton. It's a plaque, not a a plate. It is thicker than a plate, and has built in hangers on the back. It has these delicate raised flowers on it and it has great cottagy glossy finish. All ceramic, Some of the petals are missing from the flowers, but it is still a stunning, dimensional piece. $15.00 shipping rate code 3

3 restaurant ware plates. Each plate has blue line around the edge with the letter M. They are about 9" across ea. No Damage $7.00 shipping rate code 3

Abandoned project. This old mail box started life black. I was thinking of painting it white (which I did) to use as some sort of cottage accessory. Then I decided to go with red for maybe a Christmas display of some sort. I'm just tired of messing with it. Yours for only $3.00 Shipping rate code 3

Also from Canton
Old Car Jack, these make great and unusual candle holders. For a pic of one in a home setting, see Teresa's blog here and look at the 3rd picture down. $8.00 shipping code 3

This is an old ceiling lamp that needs work. I've tried to take lots of pictures for you to examine. It is not in the best shape, but if you are inclined to lamp repair, I'm sure you could make it beautiful again, or use it for parts. All metal, and original.
See pictures for measurements and details. $12.00 Shipping rate code 3

I've also made a Garage Sale page and a Flea Market Page on my web site for items from past sales that I still have.
check it out here and here.

Shipping Rate codes: The post office has raised it's rates substantially on packages. I will use either USPS or UPS depending on which is cheaper. On larger breakable items I always use UPS.
Rates are generally as follows, Rate codes are numbered.
1)Small paper or cloth items, can usually be sent in an envelope and will be, $3 or less to ship

2)Larger items, that will fit in a flat rate USPS box ( 8-5/8" x 5-3/8" x 1-5/8) will be $5.50 to ship.

3)Large or heavy items will be around $8-$12 to ship, depending on size, destination and weight.

4)Books can be sent via Media mail for between $3-$4.
I try to keep it all as inexpensive as possible.
