So much so I stayed home on Saturday - I did not have to shop at all!
Turquoise-striped crockery bowl.
Embroidered bunny dresser scarf.
A tiny brass cricket box with an arrangement which was shortly destroyed by one cat and two dogs.
Who knew pets did not like old fake flowers?
Henny, the concrete chick, had her feathers ruffled by these treasures.
The color of the creamer called my name.
Aimcee Woodland Made In England
Brown crazing under the glaze
Blue and white serving bowl on pedestal.
Have not looked up.
Sweet white creamer.
Blue and gold on white bone dish.
Have not looked up.
These will go on Etsy - maybe - after I enjoy them first.
My most exciting find!
Twenty pounds of silverplated engraved horse trophies from the Minnesota State Fair between the late 70's and the early 90's.
A large tray with handles.
A footed serving dish.
Nine large round trays - all engraved.
Assortment of round trays.
Most have the name of the horse and the event as well as the date.
All bundled for one price.
Some are going to my booth and the rest on Etsy.
I did not go on the Longest Yard Sale, but Melissa did.
I asked nicely, and she agreed to sell me a small part of her haul.
Like these children's ID bracelets.
Prize ribbons from a Fall Festival in 1952.
Check out Melissa's Antiques for The World's Longest Yard Sale: Tips and Tricks.
It is a complete guide to any long yard sale event.
So I declare myself the winner and deserving of all these treasures.
Check out my Etsy shop - I am relisting and restocking.

THE BIG REVEAL: SATURDAY (that's tomorrow!) AUGUST 29th AT 4PM EASTERN
Tania From Little Vintage Cottage
(HERE) had an idea to ask a few blogging buddies to participate in a fun adventure.
We were to thrift shop, gift the goodies to a blogger Tania selected, and then do a makeover or two on the items.
