World's Longest Yard Sale

We weren't able to make a trip of it this year, as we did last year, but Route 127 in Ohio is less than an hour from us, so we made the drive over this morning and spent a few hours treasure hunting. Here are my finds from today. Above, a vintage angel picture and tin..... Great vintage buttons.....
More old roses, of course!! In the form of a pretty plate, crochet~trimmed hanky, and stationery box.
I also spotted this vintage candy box below, for $1. I decided to open it before I bought it, to make sure the inside wasn't in too bad of shape.....
OH!! Look at what was inside!! (below)I couldn't believe it!! Vintage figural Christmas lights. I'm pretty sure they are actual old lights and not repros, but I'm still researching. What a find!!

Cute old Christmas card holder, still in pacakage, a vintage Christmas sugar bell decoration, and a pink and blue snowman!!
HUGE Empire light-up Santa face!! This guy will go over our garage this Christmas.

Oh so sweet pink-and-green snow couple (with snowbaby). Not vintage, but precious!!
And guess what, we're going back to hit more sales tomorrow morning!! If I find more treasures, I'll be sure to share photos!!

The Christmas items are my favorites. I have the same Santa figural light bulb. I have the large Santa that my mother put on our chimney at Christmas. It is not in good shape though. Congratulations.
