Today was a great day for estate shopping! We only went to two, but we did pretty well! Last night I got a call from someone who runs estate sales. He told us he would be having a sale and he thought we would like it. This particular sale wouldn't hit the paper until the next day. So we hurried down and signed up for it. We ended up being 3 and 4 on the list! Yeah! Isn't it fun to get a "heads up" on an estate sale!

Here are some of the items we were able to purchase.

Here are a few close-ups as it's pretty hard to see.

This is a musical birthday card. You can turn the knob on the side and it plays "Happy Birthday". Cardboard box envelope is just as fun as the card, well almost!

My #1 was even happy, he found a few things he liked also.

Tomorrow we'll be taking a road trip and head to Coburg for their antique market. It should be a lot of fun!
