I'm still playing catch-up, posting a bunch of stuff I got a couple estate sales I went to several weeks ago. This is my first Bakelite purchase. After getting a pastry blender at an estate sale last year for $1, my sister told me to keep an eye open for one for her. I saw this one, then realized it was probably Bakelite. The women charged me $5 because she suspected too, and I confirmed it when I got home. They're going for anywhere from $18 to almost $40 on ebay, so I'll probably sell it. Sorry, Amy!
Here's some more of my loot: two metal canisters, a roll of gold floral contact paper, two pretty blue flowered pillowcases, a tie (for purse handles), and some turquoise and pink glass Christmas ornaments.
I couldn't pass up these adorable Swiss handkerchiefs, especially since they were in this cute box that said, "From the Swiss Alps." My last name, Schlumpf, is Swiss.
OK, so I bought a huge bag of old (60s and 70s) Girl Scout uniforms and accessories, thinking there might be a market for them on ebay. There is! I paid $6 or $7 for all this, and depending on how I list it (and how lucky I get) I could get 10 times that for it.
A bunch of kids books I found in the attic of the second sale. A cute tea towel.
