This weekend's garage sales treasures from the Treasure Coast

Almost every weekend I check out the yard sales on the Treasure Coast and then compare to what I see other bloggers find from their locales. In my humble opinion, I have found some pretty good treasures thus far.

For instance, this weekend I found more antique tea cups, saucers, tea lid and some type of bowl I have yet to distinguish. It is a Bone China set from the Royal Albert Trillium collection. Check out how much replacements LTD is replacing them. But these are pretty nice set and can make a great gift for the tea party enthusiasts. I also picked up a very nice in excellent condition jewelry stand. It has a couple of scuffs on it but nothing that would make it non-functional. And from the same yard sale, I came across 4 vintage cookbooks with 3 of them the Betty Crocker's brand. There was a huge never been open poster of Jamaican born and Reggae music icon Bob Marley with umm something in his mouth but it was not food if you know what I mean. I passed on it to pick up a Sony Walkman yellow sports cassette tape player because I have come tapes I want to verify on it before selling them on eBay.

I acquired a Next Power Climber women's bicycle with a Schwinn seat from a storage auction. This was the first one I won but to be honest I did not expect to win it. And this was a silent bid auction so that is probably why it happened that way. I consider myself still in the learning phase and hope I did not upset any of the regulars if they really wanted that unit. So far I have met a couple of them and they turned out to be nice and friendly. Nothing like how the Storage Wars on A and E network portrays it.
