My oh my, I have been doing some serious treasure hunting.
Below, you will find just a few of my new finds.
I have listed them on MaisysMarket.
Some of them will actually be hard to part with.
However, happy homes makes Maisy happy~

This pink jar is sooooo beautiful.
The color is so soft.
Not a single chip or scratch.
Makes me wonder if it ever got used.
The other thing that I love about this is that it is super-duper heavy!!
Pretty in Pink~

I have collected these cover. I have plenty of them.
I was never sure what to do with them.
Then I saw these glass plates made in France.
I instantly knew just what to do.
They are so crisp and clean.
Would look great on any tablescape.
Don't ya think?
Now, I have NEVER been into perfume bottles.
I'm not really a girly girl at all.
However, I love perfume.
Go figure.....when you figure me out please let me know.....Thanks!
However, something drew me to these.
I'm not sure if it was the color or the style of the jars.
Whatever it was, I'm happy I grabbed them.
This is another wonderful find.
The color.
End of discussion.
Oh wait....did I mention the color?? did this get in there?
I have it but it's not listed yet.
It's Reed & Barton.
There is plenty more that I have that I just haven't gotten around to listing.
I have the photos.
They are edited.
I just need the extra hour to list them.
If anyone has an extra hour of time, I was wondering, can I borrow it?
I promise...I will give it back!
Seriously, my word it good!!

Sooooo.....yesteray I was out and about and I stopped at this random resale shop.
I bought a silver gravy boat.
I got home, did a bit of research and found out it was made between 1825-1865.
How cool is that???? It is BEAUTIFUL!!!!
Not sure if that will end up at MaisysMarket.
Only time will tell.

Wow, you find the best things at goodwill and garage sales! You must teach me, or I must move to your area to shop garage sales! I can't believe how old the gravy boat is, that is awesome! I did start to follow your lead, I hit Savers last week and found a 40 year old cooky pastry kit that is worth at least $40 in the box with everything it needs. I am pretty content with it! Now to sell or use and enjoy?? :)
Have a great day!!!

I saw them yesterday and wanted to RUSH out to buy a lotto ticket. I would buy out your store, and then buy a house next to you so I can have a place to stay while we go treasure hunting together. (you know, I don't want to impose...)

Oh wouldn't we have the BEST time?
