The Days Finds

rummage findsHere are today’s finds all from one quick rummage sale stop!  Rebound is a great 1970s game of “bank shots….angle shots…trick shots in this sizzling action game!” as the box says.  I snapped it up for $3.  It is complete with all the parts including the mint box and directions sheet.  These sell for $25-30 online, but this one has a little nephew’s name on it for our Christmas gag gift exchange.  I love to find a great game like this that hones fine motor skills, eye-hand coordination, even math as you must add up the score!  Best part?  No batteries required.  I know this will be a hit.

I also found a funky watering can for 50¢ which I suspected would work precisely and well with its long spout.  When I tried it I found I was right!  It works great.

Lastly, I found a huge 28 oz. stainless steel cup, probably from an old stand blender for 50¢.  This will work perfectly for the big fruit smoothies I make for lunch.  My husband gets whatever is left in the blender after I take out my 16 oz. serving and I am often overflowing his cup.  This will capture it all so I can clean the blender right away.

I think I did pretty well for $4!  One of the delights of summer for me is the many rummage sales.  I think it’s great to keep useful items out of the landfills and I’m amazed at how one person’s discards can truly become my useful or fun treasures.
