Love those black and white photos. Those flower clusters are pretty neat too. A nice little haul. Chris came home with a box full of putz houses. A nice way to end a very long work week.

I love the photo of the Cowboy Kids! I am wading through piles of old paper ephemera, and I enjoy the kid graphics too. Such innocent days back in the 40's, 50's and 60's....


A dresser for Maddie is on my list too! I love that Duncan Hines tin. Turquoise with red is one of my favorite color combos.

Brian & I are off to an auction this morning. I will be tearing him away from his beloved college football for a while so hopefully its worth it!



Hi Laurie!
Love those flowers and really love that tin (I have a weakness for tins!) and the Santa photo is priceless! (hard to believe people give them up)
Have a great weekend...karen...


Nice finds. Gosh, I can't even remember the last time I ventured into garage sale land. Here in Portland it seems like you could spend a whole day driving to one after another and not find a single good one. Glad you were able to score the dresser!


I totally understand your feeling about garage sales. I definitely like estate sales or flea mkts better.....although I have scored at some garage sales. We get the big items like the dresser you scored and other furniture pieces. Not a ton of true estate sales down this way. I love the little piggy bank! I just got another idea from you. The black and white photo of Santa and the little girl....I'm going to pull mine out and display it!!
Thanks for another great idea!!!


Nice finds! Would you believe my husband and I were at an estate sale this a.m. and ran into our next door neighbor. He had bought two chairs and could only get one in his car so we brought the other one home for him. Weird coincidence!


I ran away to join the circus to day. Okay, I went looking for junk. Pickings were slim. I followed so many signs that never lead anywhere. So frustrating! But, when yard sales are all you have, you have to follow them. Estate Sales here are usually people that had down sized already and have only the necessities. Or they are wealthy folks up Bella Vista Village and they don't have spun heads, Shiny Brites or cute games. :( You are very lucky to have SO many great Estate Sales.


lots of good stuff as usual, but omg.. I LOVE that hippo!
have a great sunday Laurie.


Woohoo for a few unexpected garage sale finds! I usually don't expect to get much vintage at those types of sales either, so it's a pleasant surprise when it happens.
Got my owl wall hanging today. I LOVE it! And the little domino pendant is adorable. Those kitties are so iconic of vintage Halloween. Thanks so much!
