The Luckiest Damn Friday the 13th

Happy Friday the 13th, everyone!  I just COULD NOT wait to share how absolutely lucky I got this morning at an estate sale!  I don't know if it tops my gigantic suitcase haul from last April, but it comes pretty close.

I pulled up to the house where the estate sale was to be held around 8am, which was an hour before the sale opened.  No one was there.  There weren't even any signs.  So when 15 minutes had gone by and no one was there yet, I called the phone number for the guy that was running the sale.  He didn't answer.  I left a message.  Then another person shows up to wait.  We agreed I was #1 and he was #2.  Then #3 and #4 show up.  FINALLY with only 30 minutes to go, the estate sale company shows up.  Then, so do all the people.  I am thankful I waited... and you're about to see why...

 A full minty set of pink Pyrex mixing bowls and half a set of aqua ones.
AND they were all 6 sold as a set, which I talked the guy down $30.
Worth the hour wait, if you ask me.
Now that I have these in my possession, I don't know if I can part with them.
And I don't collect pink or aqua.

I also walked away with this adorable child's set.

While I'm here, I'll give you an update on my office/the hoard.
I've been working hard to organize stuff and get as much as possible to my booth.

 Looks pretty clean, right?

Until you look to the left and see the closet with boxes full of crap.

And the desk where I've put more stuff that was on the floor.

Will I ever be able to take pictures for etsy again?
Maybe one day.

Even a little progress is progress!

I'm linking up at:


  1. Simply the best finds EVER! The early bird gets the worm. So happy for you.

  2. love the pyrex. Have you seen the Ebay auction for that rare piece of pyrex? last I looked it was over $3000 I would die to find that piece

  3. Awesome Pyrex finds!! Always a good day! I'm making teeny tiny progress on my horrid storage/craft/spare room but I'm with you, even tiny steps are steps!

  4. Oh Melissa, I am happy for you---sad for me. I had a table and chairs like this one when I was growing up and someone stole it our of my playhouse (date late 1950's). So I think you a really did have a Big Luck Friday the 13th.


  5. Oh my gosh, love, love the Pyrex! Especially the aqua ones. My heart would have jumped out of my chest. lol! The childs set looks super cute also. I think your room is coming along nicely. You will get er done!! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  6. I have sold three of those table sets in the past, but never in such great condition. I do not even like bowls and I love the aqua ones. Lucky, lucky girl!

  7. Cute finds! It takes time to organize and get things in order. LOTS of time!

  8. Those colors are amazing! I love the little table. Looks like a fabulous sale.

  9. Awesome deal and those bowls look to be in great condition! The estate sale companies around here are firm on all their pricing until the last day. No way can you barter here!


  10. It sure paid off to be patient, love those colors and the sweet table and chairs. Thanks for linking at VIParty:-)

  11. That Pyrex is just gorgeous. Lucky indeed.

  12. First, I love the wall color in your room, it is so cheery! And second, I have a similar section (or two, or three) in my office!!!! I think it comes with the territory. :)
