Gatherings....for The Fall Harvest Sale....

My Sweet Pal...Gail phoned me about an Estate Sale... and I flew there this Morn...
{this was the last day...as busy as I have been...there was No Way...I could get there sooner...}
Found some Very Fun Stuff!!! Perfect...for The Fall Harvest Sale!
 Loads of Little Primitives!
Couldn't wait to get to The Rabbit Hole...and Play with 'em!
It's always Fun...at these Sales... You run into Old Friends...and Visit...
It was Great seeing Polly and Bob... {Polly Ann's Mt.Vernon, Iowa} and Pat....{she called me a Naughty Name...{All...in Fun...}seems... I gathered some treasures... she had come back for.... {oh...dear!} {Love Her!}
Steve and Sue...{Remember When Antiques, Marion, Iowa.... }
Steve, (Antiques of Marion... Marion, Iowa}
Shoot...I could go on...and on...Good Folks... Good to see them all...
It's funny...in this business... we all run so hard...against each other...yet...we still...get along..
Send Folks...to each other's Stores...and Hope....we all...do well... 
Good Folk...and...we all know...there is something for all of us....
I have been at Auctions...where we all are bidding against each other...all day...
Then..at the end...we help each other load...
and all go to Supper...together..
I like that...
Ultimately...we are all...just trying to 'Stay Alive'...and know our Market...it's business....
nothing personal....
I was Thankful...for the call... and Love...all of the Early Treasures...
They will be a Great Addition...to The Sale...
{Plus...it's Fun...Playing with New...Old...Toys!}
Hope You...had a Great Day... Filled with Old Friends...and Treasures!!!!
Love...to Ya!

These Leather Bound...Books...are HUGE.... and have Amazing Steel Engravings...throughout...They date form the mid, 1870's...and...I Love 'em!
I picked up...several...Darling little Benches...and Boxes... oh my...One can Never...have Too Many of These! : )
Oh...Dear...This Little Jewel...Stole my Heart! It's a Teeny...Tiny....hand made... tin...Box....in Old...Red...Paint.... SWEEEEET!
This Old...Gnarly... Little Chest...is Small...and...Soooo Primitive.... Had Two Folks...try and buy it from me at the Estate Sale.... {I never do that...} I said..."Come to The Fall Harvest Sale! It'll be There... along with...all sorts of Fun Stuff!!!" They are Coming! YAY!
I found this Darling Little Old Truck...at the Estate Sale.... Lord...There is Somethin' 'Bout a Truck.... I can't Help Myself!!!
I finally brought in the Civil War era Markers... {they would have been pitched...but thankfully...the Man...who took care of the Cemetery...saved them...they all have some damage...{he has long...passed away...I bought them...at his...Estate Auction...There were some...wonderful...Soulful things...he had saved... wish...I could have met him... } but..I don't care about imperfections... it's part of the 'Journey'...... I Love them... and... am Proud...
to Display Them...
I bought two...of these Old...Grungy...Wall Mirrors...from my friend, Ray...Love Them...'as found'.... wait 'til ya see them...SHINE!!!
Another...Darling little stool...{ I gathered...several... remember...one...can Never have...too Many! : ) }
I am still...fluffing...the top...of the Old Soul... He is Very...Happy!
