Barn Sale Finds

Roger and I spent Saturday at a fabulous outdoor craft/vintage/antique show. I'll tell you more about it later in the week. But, while I was there, I certainly couldn't resist checking out the other vendors! And I got some great things!



This chicken immediately caught my eye! I believe that it's a candy dispenser. I need to find some gumballs or marbles to try it out. It's marked 1964 Ideal Toy Corp.



I also picked up this great hand-embroidered Christmas tablecloth. The details are amazing. There is also a pair of plastic purse handles, a metal water pitcher, enamalware saucepan and cup and some soda bottle stoppers. I expect these will all be headed for my Etsy Shop soon!

Find more vintage goodies at Her Library Adventures!

That chicken is cute. I had never heard of Ideal Toy Corporation until I found a little pre-rubik's cube type game. I think they had some great toys in their day.

I had one of these chickens when i was little, I still have it to day thank to my grandma, it had little plastic eggs with it, you put then in the hole and pushed down on it's tail and it laid
the egg.

Oh And it was the main part of a game, though I don't remember how it was played. that was over 50 years ago.
