Just some stuff I bought today while out yard saling. Pyrex Visions Dutch Oven, Hot Wheels, Matchbox, Jadatoys, Electronic hand-held games like Checkers, Yahtzee and others, Anchor Hocking Star of David EAPC Butter Dish, Pez Dispenser, Belt Buckle and such.
Plan to sell the stuff on ebay or at the Country Trader Antique Shop in Mansfield Pa. Might go to my other shop in Galeton, Pa. The Hearts Desire.
I also picked up a lot of scrap metal and obsolete electronics for scrapping out. Great day.

A New Leaf

Well, I know its been awhile, but well...I'm short on sticktoitiveness. Actually I have a problem. Its called compulsive hoarding, it's quite an addiction actually. Sort of  joke among a lot of flea market people is that we all have a disease that cause us not to be able to stop buying...well I have overcome my adddiction.
However my house has been quite cluttered the last few years which has made it really hard to do anything but constantly  move "stuff" from one spot to another.
I'm not buying anymore, but I do still clean out properties. I wont be able to show you any new stuff I bought, but I can show you some things as I get ready to sell them. So here they are.
This is a sweet old wooden tool box. Good solid shape. I'm going clean it up and put $35 bucks on it and see what happens. Prolly have to take less, but you never know.


Below are two sets of old Childcraft books. Theyll be listed on ebay. I'm figuring to get $15-$30 for them. I got them for free so whatever.


Well hopefully I can update this blog more often as I get the clutter cleared away. Feel free to visit my other blogs at
If you're really feeling helpful some comments would be cool.

Another Day at the NTCH $8

video



Had fun today rooting through the NTCH finding cool stuff. Found a bunch of card games that I forgot to put in the video. I just put a bunch of them together for a lot listing on ebay.

The dart board in the video is really nice. Its a good quality board that Im hoping I can get at least $25 for at the shop in Mansfield. I really like the Cast Iron trivets, even the electric one, but Ill only put a couple bucks a piece on those. Not sure what to do with the Princess House Lamp, that's just not a item that sells very well. Prolly just box it away or now. The Little Tykes dinosaur is for Flintstones toys and it will go to the shop. Love the little Dakin Pug Dog. Really cute. The Foley Measure Cups are always good for a couple dollars. Tape recorder is going to get used for awhile on some projects, but Im sure Ill sell it too. The matchbox tray will be used for its intended purpose as I gather up old MBs for my collection. Love the little Peter Rabbit fork. Then there's always something cool about having something from the Waldorf. It looks like its just plated silver. The 1975 Train Ornament looks an aweful lot like some Hallmark ornaments I've seen, but it isnt marked. I just liked the plastic sheet with the rooster on it. Thinking of framing it. Guess that's it except for a few pieces of scrap metal I threw in the bags.

Im going to a good sale tomorrow, but I get to work a Walmart later in the day so I might not get to post.

Spent $10 and got a little scrap metal, some book display stands, 3 Corelle Butterfly Gold tumblers, an old Hamms Beer glass, vintage Woody Woodpecker puzzle, and Atlas Wire Top jar, a Singer Zigzagger Attachment and couple Microsoft game controllers. Oh yeah, got some Little Tykes Waffle Blocks too. Most of this stuff Ill just keep till I find more similar items to go with and then I sell either at the shop or online.

An Hour at Goodwill and $43 Later

Another great trip to the Goodwill Store. Started the day visiting the Country Trader Antiques & Collectibles Shop in Mansfield, Pa. where I have a booth for selling many of my trashy, treasure discoveries. Decided on the way home to stop by the Goodwill Store in Wellsboro, Pa. for a quick look around. I found some sweet items while I was there picking. Toys, books, and housewares which I'll share on video at Youtube. Want to check some of the items on ebay too.

Got a decent Penncrest Ice Cream Freezer, Little Tykes Dollhouse Furniture, a cool little Dodge Viper toy car, a Pyrex Visions Dutch Oven pot, Pampered Chef Cookbook, Pa State Grange Cookbook, 2 Red and White Enamel Sauce Pans, Lots of Childrens Books and a few Christian books. A nice Second Printing of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Ten Lynne Ewing books. A spooky picture book of Devilish Tales from Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee and Kentucky titled, Dark and Bloodied Ground by Mary Eastman and Mary Bolte. A Scrabble Dictionary, A Treasury of Children's Literature, 3 Alpha Pets books and several other books. Torrey's Treasury of Scripture Knowledge, Spurgeons Men of the Old Testament.

Not much for ebay or Bonazzle.com in this lot, but a great selection of inventory for my shops in Mansfield and Galeton.
