Whoopee!! Great stuff!


The estate sale "gods" smiled on you today!! You bought exactly what I would have, if I had got there before you!!

I've missed your estate sale posts. It was a good day, wasn't it? Have a splendid weekend!

OMG OMG OMG! That globe! The ironing board! All the paper stuff! You hit the jackpot, girlfriend. I'm going to an estate sale tomorrow--it's Day 2 so alot of the good stuff will be gone BUT what's left is 40-50% off. Hope I find some good stuff like you did.

Solid finds!!! Glad the estate sale season is ready to begin again!


WOW!! GREAT finds!


Finally...I was getting worried you might have given up. These are fabulous. I get so tired of wanting the containers and not the stuff in them. Super finds...smiles..Renee


Love sand pails but never see them. I had a globe from my childhood which now makes it very old, however I passed it on as when I moved out of CA I decided not to haul it that and an old Underwood upright typewriter my mom gave me as a young girl, very heavy. Also Bob gave up a very old player piano that still smelled like a dance hall. Moving costs 1 dollar a pound so you think twice about your heavy stuff.


Wow! My heart skipped a beat when I saw that sweet little baby pram. Soooo cute! Such fun finds today~ woooo hoooo!!



Lucky you!! Love love that watering can and the tiny little card table. The little buggy could work for display at your shows, too.


Hi Laurie, great finds, and I
LOVE the baby doll buggy!! I'm
so glad that your new found treasures put a smile on your
face. :)


Yippee for nice weather and the sales starting back up again. Ahhhh....the thrill of the hunt!

Well done little magpie!
The Santa with the green glove is my favorite. Everything is so very YOU!

Emily Thompson

yay! great stuff!


Great stuff. I feel as happy as if I found it myself! Good job!


You know what's worse than Spring Fever? Magpie Ethel Fever! I get jealous, excited, and all inspired at the same time! I love you but hate you for sharing! :) Can't wait till yard sales start here!


I just love your estate finds. Do you have a collection of vintage women's dress patterns, before 1960???

Marci Cook


What fantastic finds! I would be jealous but I hit 3 that were that good also. Makes me excited for spring!


I love that the man felt the nails were worth more than the pail! Cute stuff all around.
