New Vintage Find for My Kitchen

As you know, I have a "thing" for chickens....

Me and my beloved Martha.  She was my favorite!  I still have a few of her offspring - I can pick them out - sassy, independent, big black eyes and feathery crests.  None of them have replaced her in my heart.  She was a sweetie!  

So, yesterday, Lisa and I went to consult a family with their estate sale needs.  They are doing the sale on their own, just wanted some direction.   While we walked around, I spied this on the kitchen counter....."It's ok if you say no, but I have to ask, is this going to be for sale?"

I couldn't believe it was the same celery green I painted my kitchen, much less that it had this adorable rooster on it.  "I could sell that" .... "well then, you just did!"  I didn't and still don't know how much it was because we did a "bundle deal."  Lisa picked out an item she priced $10, we try to keep it fair, so I guess this will be equal to that.....I got the better deal...teehee!   Somehow, it always works out that way...(wink, wink)...just ask her!  

We also bought a van's so much fun to buy this way!  No one else, but the family, saw it.  I've said this before, but when you buy and sell in the same the same estate sales your customers go's a bit awkward.  We left bids on some of the furniture that they want to post to try to sell.  "Don't sell that for less than ...this... or, we will buy it."  

So, we both left with goodies for ourselves, Christmas gifts for family (yep!) and some awesome items for our next show.  Here is a link to the facebook page where the show and event information is listed:

However, this will find a home on my "coffee cart" where I will store tea and such in it.  What do you collect?  For me it's what is one thing your collect....?

  1. That's a really nice find for your kitchen. I think if I was in your business my house would be full of things I liked and couldn't part with.

  2. Usually when we go on picks, something stays at home like your chicken find. Great price by the way. Sometimes it is hard to sell something though. Its a disease. LOL Janice

  3. A great find. I think I would end up with a cluttered home as I would want to keep everything.
