It seems like it was just snowing yesterday and now it's Spring!
My favorite thing about this time of the year is knowing
that Estate Sales & Flea Markets will be starting
up again and I can start foraging for new items for
Moondog Cottage!

These cold winter months haven't been a total loss!
There have been a few estate sales here and there and I've picked
up some treasures.  For instance, this gorgeous Antique Crucifix.
This is an unusual one!

Get your "Mad Men" on with this beautiful Martini Set!
Pitcher, stirrer and five matching glasses.
Great Vintage Find!!

Love this large Rhinestone Belt Buckle!
Imagine this with a pair of jeans, a white shirt and some black
kitten heels!!

Two elegant evening bags for a Night on the Town!

This gorgeous Antique Oriental Jewelry Box
has a twirling ballerina & gentleman in top hat
and still plays music perfectly!

Well, Time has flown again!  I can't believe Christmas has come and
gone and it's 2017.  Let's hope the world calms down some and
everyone decides to give peace a try for a change.  Hey, I can
dream can't I?

As usual, when New Year's has passed my mind turns towards
cleaning things out and looking to new adventures.  This year I
decided to root through my vast Christmas and Halloween collection
and get rid of some stuff.  One of the things I've loved for years are
my Nicol Sayre items.  But I've decided to offer them for sale
as a person gets to the point where you only have so much room you know?

Nicol's items are so unique, whimsical and fantastic, that they
remain collectible for years and years.  One of the first ones I 
listed on Ebay a few days ago has already sold for a price much
higher than I listed it for, so I was pleasantly pleased that I had
decided to part with it!

In case you or someone you know is a Nicol Sayre collector
or just loves unique Halloween & Christmas decorations
