Out of ALL the estate sales you've ever gone to and posted about, this was my absolute favorite! Yodel-ay-hee-hooo!

Pam @ House of Hawthornes

Wowzer! That was an estate sale made for you! So many goodies. I think you should put Astrid on the payroll as your estate sale scouter.

Eddie Mitchell

My goodness! What a haul! Not any sales here, because it's Derby weekend. My grandmother could yodel (seriously), but it took a lot of persuading to get her to do it. She was really timid when it came to showing off her talents.

Musings from Kim K.

I've trained my sister/mom to look at your blog each day and she was up earlier than me this morning on email and she told me to race over and check out your stash of spunheads. I can't believe it!! You seriously hit GOLD with this sale! That bottlebrush tree is dripping with trim!! What a fantastic sale. Nora Lou would be happy to know that you will be having fun with her treasures.


Oh my gosh Laurie! What a wonderful haul! I love the groovy birds best! Never seen them. That tree is to die for too! karen.... Yodle on!


Probably the sweetest haul I have seen in a long time. So happy that you got some new crafting stuff! I'm sure you needed it :-) I want to dig through that jewelry bin. The colors look very Laurie/Erica.

BTW....you owe Astid a bottle of wine.



Such fun finds. My favorite is the recipe box. I love bright colors in my kitchen. It makes it all feel right.


wow! what a sale! it is like all that stuff was waiting for you! i'm dying for a great sale like that. haven't had one yet this year.


Wow! Amazing! Love the enamel flower pins.


I enjoyed meeting you yesterday. So thrilled to hit one if the sales you post about and I find myself asking, "how do I miss those kind of sales?" I am not usually so bad with names. I blame a long week and heat. Sorry. I'm headed back down the block today to find more goodies. Enjoy your treasures.

What a haul!! Enjoy all your treasures! I love those baby rattles and all that jewelry! Thanks for posting about all your fun!


Great haul!!! especially not going until 2:30 (wonder what was there at 10?)(doesn't really matter when what was left was AWESOME!!)
Totally enjoyed your narrative of information (know what I'm talking about?)
I played the YouTube of Nora while I read the comment section & found it a delightful background :D


LOL My sister just hollered from the other room "Ummm What are we listening too"? haha Yodel Mountain! So cute!
Yep this sale and those spun heads were meant for you! Seems that your mica birds have already begun multiplying this season too. Off to a great start!
Erica :)


wow! I guess you hit the mother load!
my dad used to yodel.. it drove my mother crazy! LOL!
have a great day Laurie


Holy guacamole! I need to start getting out of the house more and checking out some of these sales in Portland! Wow!


Ye gads! A yodeling, crafting, acting hoarder! I just fainted, one of those boxes would have been a major find, but stacks!


Thanks for the shout-out.. So glad you scored!! I knew this was your kind of sale:)

Melissa's Antiques

HOLY MACKEREL!! I have never even seen this much crafting goodness at an estate sale OR auction. WOW! I simply NEED one of those airplane meal boxes. My bf is a pilot and collects vintage airline/airplane stuff. One of those would be perfect!


Wow. Just wow.

Into Vintage

I am speechless. I never think you'll be able to top one of your amazing scores but then this happens. With yodelling to boot!


Holy crap - it surely was meant to be for you to find out about that sale.... incredible finds!
