Finding Disney Treasures

This weekend I spent some of my time in the morning shopping around at Yard Sales. I had one thing on my brain while hopping from one yard to another....Disney! My favorite finds are old treasures that can't be found anymore on the shelves at Disney or online. I like to see what people have left in their basements over the years and finally letting these items see the light! Here are a few of my finds this weekend...

I found this 'A pictorial souvenir of Walt Disney World' book. It looked old, a few pages were falling out but still in good condition. It was at a yard sale that you could give a donation, so I gave a few dollars for this book and a few others finds. When I got home, I found out online
that this book is from 1975 before Epcot. This book was a fun find for me!
Also at this yard sale was a Press-Out book of Dumbo by McDonald's back in 1987. The best part of this book is nothing is pressed out. All the pieces are still in the book and prefect! I was excited about this Disney item, I love Dumbo!
Another Yard Sale had Disney magnets. I remember seeing pictures of these Disney magnets but weer excited
to get each one for 25 cents a piece. Mickey, Minnie, Donald magnets and a Walt Disney World magnet before Animal Kingdom. The people at the sale told me that their parents loved to travel and would pick up magnets as souvenirs. Picking up magnets is a great idea for souvenirs and something I do also when traveling!
MY favorite find was this Disney watch. It's Mickey and friends Disney Time Works watch from Disney. Can't find anymore and it's hardly used. I picked it up for $4.00! It was like a Dream Come True!
Do you Yard Sale for Disney Finds? What amazing things have you found?

Have A Magical day!

Yard/Garage Sale Hopping : Disney Finds

I love going to Yard/Garage Sales and look around for Disney items. This Saturday I visited six houses and found some Cool Disney items. I get excited when I find anything Disney related and have to buy! Here are my finds on Saturday: 

I found mugs, different kinds and love collecting them. I got a Disney On Ice Mug for 25 cents, a Walt Disney World Mug that still had its price tag on it of $6.95, for 50 cents. The lady said she had never used it. And I found an Epcot Center mug that has a date of 1982. It's in great condition and again, never used from what I was told for 50 cents. Mugs are very common to find at Yard Sales because many people buy them and then realize they have to many and sell them. I have found some great Disney mugs by visiting Yard Sales.
Also found was a Tinkerbell Figurine Set : Fairies which was never taken out of the box. Price tag still on for 12.50 but I paid 1.00 for the set! Great deal!
 The last find was a Disney Puzzle box, on Disney vintage posters and also had its poster still inside, nice and clean, all 1000 pieces! I paid 50 cents for it!

What fun Disney Find have you found when hunting through Yard Sales? I'm already excited about my next Disney Find adventure out on a Saturday morning! 

Have a Magical Day!
