Yard Sale Finds: Littlest Pet Shop Collies and Silk Ties

This morning I went rummaging near Père Lachaise cemetery. It was a good size community sale. I was there rather early, around 8, but there was already a lot of shoppers. Still manage to find some nice items before the rain started to pour.

Today's finds


I am getting good at finding LPS (littlest pet shop), but I should really make and print a master list of the good ones and try to memorize it. Anyway these 2 were good ones, I paid 1 euro each (less than $1.50 each). They are collie dogs, the chocolate one sells for about 40$ and the other one about 25$. So not bad.

I also bought 3 silk ties (this is something I am testing). All are either Italian or French made (Nina Ricci, Rosso Fiorentino and Alain Figaret). I pick them because the prints are lovely. 2 have flowers and birds and one is fleur de lis. I don't expect a huge profit, but I am confident they'll sell.

I also picked 2 piece of French enamel wall plaque, one says "cave" and the other "toilette" (bathroom). They are cute. Probably from the 70's or early 80's. 



Everything else I bought is for the family: some clothes and books.

Looking forward next weekend, another big community sale is announced right next door! Can't wait. meanwhile I need to get going, kick my behind and start listing....
