Nice haul. It is always fun to add to our collections. You found a number of items that would work nicely in a 4th of July display. I love the Easter toys.

KayteeJane's House

Love your finds. The garbage can is great. I have a similar push card - to win a turkey for Thanksgiving. Love the old fashioned names on it.

Melissa's Antiques

Laurie -- these are GREAT finds! I can't believe there wasn't more vintage Christmas.

I have a few of those push "tip boards." Would love to send your way if you can use a few more!


Love all your neat finds especially the Christmas fireplace. Believe it or not, we are using ours to this day at Christmas. It's getting pretty worn, but works great and now the grand babies like it!!!!


Musings from Kim K.

I always love to see what comes home with you. Those Easter toys are perfect for your crafting adventures. The cardboard fireplace is identical to the one my parents had in their first home. They have pictures of me hanging my stocking on it. I'm glad you and your Mom have been able to make this an annual event.


Great finds! I, too, hate my compost bucket and just never thought to switch it up to something more attractive. I will be on the lookout now, leaving no pail unturned - lol!


Looks like you came home with a pretty good haul. I am partial to the toy washer. The graphics are just too cute! Those Irwin Easter toys would've made me squeal for sure! Love the way you use the child size suitcases, stoves, fridge and other kid size furniture for storage and mixing into your decor! You've given me tons of ideas!!
Glad you had a wonderful time there along with having an extra set of hands (mom) and running into your blog friend :-)
Thanks for sharing!


Great finds! I'm glad you had such a good time and got some goodies. I agree,sometimes it's as much fun to look as it is to buy.
I love that t-shirt!

My Shabby Roses

It looks like you found some great things Laurie.
I love your idea on the food scraps. It doesn't take very long to fill up one of those brown buckets. I too buy the liners it makes it so much nicer to clean up.
Glad you had fun at Farm Chicks!


Good finds at Farm Chicks. I am doing a show in Nebraska next weekend called Junk Jubilee. They have had it in Des Moines, IA but this is the first one in NE. Should be fun but A LOT of work! I don't know how you do all the shows you do!
