Jedi Masters and Early Americans

I am the temporary owner of an instant Star Wars collection. The 'bay had suggested this would be a hot item for the Holidays, so I have been on the lookout. When I went back to the estate sale from my last post for half-price Saturday, I picked up a talking Yoda doll still in his original box, a C-3PO talking pen with original blister card, and I found the Trilogy and other SW DVDs at another sale. All on the cheap of course! My dog doesn't like the story telling Jedi master, it freaks him out, so he is stored safely out of reach of the Dobie. The Trilogy has already sold but Yoda is available and generating many views, see him here.

My Pyrex fest continues with the find of an Early American pattern 1.5 qt bowl. The pattern is not my style, but I can surely appreciate its Pyrex-iness. (Did I just make up a new word?)

Anywho, I also picked up my first Federal glass pieces. They are 4 cute little shot glasses with two gold tone bands around the top of each one. Finally, I came across a blue flower patterned enamel fondue pot set. The colors are brilliant and the pot is in super clean shape! These items will be up in my etsy store today.

I had a great weekend of thrifting and got a lot of good stuff! When I came home, my husband asked where I am going to put all of this stuff so I need to figure out a storage plan that doesn't make our home office look like storage-tote city. My goal is to stock up before the crappy midwest winter hits.
If you are a reseller, how do you store your stock?

Oh, and I am linking up to Apron Thrift Girl's Thrift Share Monday Link Party~here


  1. I'm slightly embarrassed to admit that I still have all of my childhood Star Wars toys boxed up in the basement. I'm looking forward to the day that I have kids and finally have an excuse to get them out again. Of course, by then they probably won't even know what Star Wars is. Won't stop me anyway!

  2. I found the same Early American Pyrex this week, I bought one, but when I saw the others at different stores they were all priced too high! I think I will keep it for myself as I am seriously lacking in the mixing bowl department!
