How fast can you throw stuff in a box?

OOOoooo...Look at the junk I found at an unadvertised estate liquidation...Thank you, Universe, for providing friends who look out for/enable me in my addictions. Celluloid Santa, pear dishes, various creatures...

Faux Hummel music boxes, fishy 1970's coasters in the original box, wall pocket designed to look like a cukoo clock...

and yes, that is a vintage brooch with shell "flowers". Heaven.

Tiny shells and creepy babies. At first I thought they were salt & pepper shakers, but no. Someone created them just because.

I have never seen the whole set in the box. Ever.

Ship shape paint by numbers. Under glass!

Heading back to open more boxes on Wednesday. I'll keep you posted.

Lots of yummies in that box! And there's more? Since you brought it up, that one baby kinda looks like an anteater...

The Krystal Kut Kit! I just bought 3 pieces from that at a sale (ridiculously priced under 50 cents) and now you show me there is more! The hunt begins.

I eagerly await seeing the rest of your finds. (and jealously)
