You are one dedicated shopper and it really paid off. I'm glad all your anxiety produced so many lovely treasures. Good for you.

You found some great treasures. I would never be the first in line. I can't seem to get up but it sure paid off for you.


You are just like me....worryworryworry...
and if you don't know what to do worry!
Glad it turned out well, love your finds!

If you sell that napkin holder to a friend you met at Bouckville, you will always know where it is and could come visit every now and then.


It is going to be a great year!


You are my hero! I think I would probably have beaten a hasty retreat back home in hopes no one would discover I had gone to the wrong place.
Can't wait to see what you find in that shoebox of buttons so please do tell.


This is how much I know about estate sales. I didn't even know they had a list. I'm just like you though. When I have something important to do I get no sleep and worry worry worry. Good stuff, and worth it.


Lucky Lucky You, glad it was worth it! I've never EVER been #1 on the list, or made the list. I have, however, gone on the wrong day. YOu know, when they post it TWO WEEKS early rather than the week before, on Craigs List??! Yep, that's me!

Glad it was worth it for you, can't wait to see the rest of the loot!


The bowls are beautiful. Who makes them?


Oh I have been there!! Glad you brought home some sweet treasures!! xo Heather


Hi. I grew up with a napkin holder just like that one, in green. It went on every family camping trip, and kept the paper napkins from blowing all over the state park campgrounds. My mom still has it, and we use it on her patio when we eat lunch outside. That red one is wanting to be equally useful, I can tell. Glad you were able to be so useful at the sale, too!


omg-the set of tulip bowls! i've never seen them all together and in such good shape! lucky you! those little flowered teacups are adorable too!


I love all of it. My grandma had that napkin holder, so that was a fun find for me to see!! Congrats,

Wow! That situation would have worried me a bit as well ! What fortitude ! Great story.
