Saturday morning was dark and stormy, but that didn’t stop me from from trying to find a yard sale or two. The sales were sparse and many of the people who had advertised, got scared off by the impending doom that the dark clouds were threatening.
At a church sale I visited, only two people showed up. One of them had these strange sports figures for sale. I had no idea what they were, but strange is usually good, so I bought the set for a buck. After a quick eBay search, I learned that they are “Sports Freaks” figures from HG Toys, produced in 1986. They remind me of the old Marx Nutty Mads, but these guys are solid vinyl and HEAVY.
At the same sale, I bought an old Hangman board game. I really should have left that one behind, but Vincent Price!
This was my favorite find of the day. A 1979 Superman Mix and Match storybook. this one will go one the Superman shelf for sure.
Probably the best items I found on Saturday were not related to pop culture at all. These two chairs are awesome! They will look so groovy in my man cave when I expand it to include a full bar (wishful thinking!). I bought both of these two vintage Krueger chairs for just $15! it will probably cost me that much just to find a replacement for the one missing caster!
Anyone else have better weather and better luck at the yard sales this weekend?
