Saturday's Yard Sale Buys

Here's a few things I bought on Saturday. At one sale the seller had a bunch of jewelry laid out in a box - a piece of a cardboard divider had fallen down within the box so I lifted up the cardboard to find this cool heavy Batman ring (.925 silver marked DC - for DC Comics) for $1. It's a man's size 12 so it's a tad too big for me. I can't find any similar ones online. The next time I'm in Vegas baby, I'm taking it to the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop to see how much they would give me for it, just for fun. Visiting the shop is on my to-do list for Vegas. The ring is tarnished but wanted to leave it as-is.

I also bought this Russian hat with a bunch of pins for $4. I don't think the pins are too old, I see one has a 1987 date on it. But it's the kind of thing I don't typically see at a yardsale so I bought it.

I have to apologize to the winners of the Sassy Signs contest who won earlier this month (Diana, Shara, Briana & Ann) - there was a communication glitch between Sassy Signs and myself so that is why there's been a delay in getting your prize. The winners will be contacted by Sassy Signs very very soon, I promise.

My son would have went crazy for that Batman ring also. He loves anything Batman. Can't wait to see what it appraises for.
