I am drooling over your finds! What a great way to start the new year. And to find the keys! What a rush!


I just had so much fun reading this post ! 😃 I can't believe you were there for two hours but then again you made a haul and it was a digger sale. Such fun things and I love that vintage wallpaper book! Best of all was the end of your post /story........finding the lady's keys and getting 10% as a reward! Great start for the new year of sales 😃


Can you imagine how cute a whole bathroom done in that fish wallpaper would be???? LOVE it!
I also like "You A Cake Queen"! LOL
Great stuff! Oh I need a good sale!

Of course you would find the missing keys!! Great treasures. I'm sure it felt good to get back into estate sale land after your 2 month sabbatical. Here's to more great sales in 2015!!

That little Tommee Tippee cup was the very first thing I ever sold on ebay! Glad you found the keys and if you hadn't found them I wonder if anyone would have EVER found them in such a weird place :) I absolutely love that quilt. That is so cool and it does look like sleeping bag lining. You find the coolest stuff!


Great finds!


Well of course you found the keys! I would expect nothing less from a professional digger like yourself :-)

That quilt of old sleeping bags is amazing. It immediately made me think of how you were going to do Kate's room before she changed her mind. It would have been perfect!

What a great way to start the year. Hopefully this is just the prelude to an eventful year of digging for you.

Have an awesome week! New flooring and paint starting here today. Chaos!



What a great lot of goodies and 10% off to boot! You lucky girl, that is definitely a great way to start the new year! Hugs! karen....

Looks like you found every color of Swisstraw that was ever made. Good digging.

Gina @ VintageJunkinMyTrunk

Love the key story! And your treasures, of course!


Those Swistraw colors are really pretty, what do you use it for? You did find lots of goodies, it was a great way to start a new year!
The key find was the icing on the cake!


What a haul! Will you put a preservative sealer on the lamby stake before putting it outside?

Linda @ A La Carte

Wow! What an amazing haul and yay you found the keys!


If anyone would find those keys it would be YOU because I know you look in every drawer and crevice when you are digging. Just like me! I wonder how on earth she lost them in that bucket of clothespins?

One of my favorite things to find are those old folding rulers. I love that each one has a different color on the top. I never realized it until I put all of mine in a piece of pottery one day.


You are off to a great start for 2015!! I love the variety of things you found. the wall paper book is way cool. I just knew you must have found the keys....having seen you at work searching and going around more than once....congratulations on a super sale!!

Woo Hoo! Fun stuff. Especially that puppy picture. How cute is that? And now I know who to call when I loose my keys. Uh, do you find glasses, too? Just asking...


Wow! What a way to kick off the new junking season! Such incredible finds! Let me know if you're going to sell any of the needle books - I see some that I don't have yet!


Awesome finds!! Was that the one off Flavel? I was there later in the day and brought home a pile of goodies, too, but the early worm gets the best stuff!! Son bought the drill press from the workshop.


Looks like a great start to estate sales for the New Year ! I am living vicariously through you and other bloggers while I am on my "spend freeze" so thanks for a lovely, brimming with goodies post :)

Great haul. I would've easily bought 3/4 of what you found.

How totally awesome you found the keys! Yay for the discount!


The keys being found was probably far more valuable than 10% off to that lady - I would hate it if I lost my keys. So glad you made good use of the 10%!


All I can say is WOW! Well... actually I can say more! I am in awe of all of your finds. I would be in heaven with a sale like that!
