ANOTHER 5 CENT TOUR

Welcome to part two of the 5 cent tour. This Hoosier was purchased at an estate sale, just around the corner of our home. It was the 2nd day of the sale and we bought it for under $200.00. YES, that was a "steal". We also bought a bedroom set,a very nice oriental rug and a dresser for husband. That was a Great Sale. The Hoosier is in the "Hoosier room/foyer/office/room and is to the left of the front door when you come in. The first owners used it as an informal eating area and the neighbors told us they would play cards there. We bought "Ramblewood" from the original owners :)
In the corner, by the Hoosier is part of my Longaberger collection. I have slowed down on collecting, as I'm not really "working" and they are high end baskets. I do buy the yearly Christmas basket. It's a gift my my husband !

Isn't that heart one a cute one. The iron stand that they are on, guess what, is from another estate sale. :)


Oh, My, Look who still LOVES to sleep on his back???
JACKSON BROWN, doing what he does best...when not doing naughty things. I hope you enjoyed this tour...there will be more, down the road.
This is a thought from "Our Daily Bread" which I try to read each day as a devotional, and today it spoke to me...from Deut.4:9
"Lest you forget the things your eyes seen...teach them to your children and your grandchildren."
and "If children are to find their way to God, we must point the way ."
Very powerful to me.
Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate each and every comment from you, my blogging friends. Warmly, Deb :)

You sure have some nice things, esp. the hoosier cabinet. I like looking at all the great things you find. Maybe you could give us all some helpful hints for finding such treasures. Nerm

I love the Hoosier, I had no clue that was what they were called.

Becky said...

Hi Deb, I love your hoosier. I have one too. I grew up playing with them as my Great-great-great Aunt had 2 on her back porch. You can see mine in my Freshgatherings.blogspot. post.
Scroll all the way down. But they are so pratical. I pull out the top and serve off of it.
I love the baskets too.
My mom has one of the 1st JW Market baskets. A really fun colletion. I love to find them at garage sales too.

Joy said...

Wow, love your Longaberger collection. I have quite a few too. A lady I work with sells them.
I like their pottery as well. Love the Hoosier (although not sure what that means ;))

Donna Lynn said...

Your doggie is just darling! I love how he is sleeping, what a cutie. Wow, your hoosier is wonderful, love the baskets too, I found a Longaberger at Goodwill a couple years ago for $1!!! What a find that was.

XO,

Hi Deb!
What an incredible price you got on that Hoosier cabinet! It's so nice. I've always wanted on but the price has always been too much.
I have LOTS of Longaberger baskets too. I love going to the Homestead in Frazeysburg, a favorite Girls Day Out spot! I have mostly basic baskets except for a few Christmas and some Homestead baskets bought while visiting there. They are getting too pricey for me. So I enjoy and use the ones I have!
Hugs, Sherry

Hi, this is my first visit. Every day, I pick a new blog to visit. I saw your comments on a few of my "regularly visited blogs", so I thought I'd stop by for a peek.
That Hoosier cabinet is great! I love those, but haven't ever found one at a "bargain price", but I'm still looking!
I'll be back to visit again later.
