Treasures found during weekend garage sales on Treasure Coast

It has been a while since I have posted to my blog. This does not mean I have not found any treasures along the Treasure Coast of Florida.  But just like any great author, I have had a long writer's block. I figured I better post something fresh on here before Google decides to de-index this blog.

In the past couple of months, I have attended some nice Estate Sales and some very well put together garage sales. Here is a list of some of the good and interesting items I discovered.

Now normally I am looking for cool vintage or antique stuff. But at garage sales you may stumble on some things that are useful to a certain degree. That was the case with the E-Plate I found unopened at a local garage sale here on the Treasure Coast.  Makes for good passive advertising when driving around town. I have yet to install it though so right now it is not serving its intended purpose.

I found this next treasure at an estate sale that was run by the son or grandson. Hey I didn't ask but I knew from listening to him talk to the other patrons that he was a relative. The house was advertised as containing over 60 years worth of goodies and boy did it live up to the 60 years part. The first item here is a Sears Easi-Load Super 8 MM movie projector.  This was probably sold some where between the 1950's and 1960's.

These next set of Tonka emergency vehicle toys I found at a local moving sale. The person actually had more of  the Tonka and Hot Wheels cars but the Hot Wheels were gone by the time I showed up and the remaining cars were too much to pay for in my opinion.

Honorable mention: North Carolina Cherokee ashtray. I call this my honorable mention because it can never be sold or used again. I bought it dirt cheap at a local garage sale then put it away in my storage unit. Then one day I opened up the door and out comes tumbling down and breaking into many pieces was this ashtray. Oh well I guess that is a sign for me because I am not a user of tobacco products anyway. But this looked like a great collector's item and it was not even used.

I will post these on my eBay account in the upcoming days so please stay tuned if you are interested in obtaining any of them.
