I am offically done buying crocks! :)  My sister found me a 5 gallon Crown crock two weeks ago.  Then last Tuesday I took my parents to Hippo Hardward so that they could get drawer pulls for their newly remodeled bathroom and closet.  Well, while we were at Hippo, my parents bought this 6 gallon Marshall Pottery crock as an early birthday present.

I thought that the 5 gallon and 6 gallon were the only ones that I had left to search for, but was I wrong!  Again, while we were at Hippo Hardware, I ran across this beauty and could not resist buying it.  Look at the second picture and you will see that it is a 30 Gallon Crown crock.  YES, you read that right, 30 Gallon!  It is broken and needs to be glued, but I really don't care.  I had no idea they were made that big.  What a fabulous find.

Happy Treasure Hunting to everyone!

A new crock for the patio!

So I have found another crock for the patio.  This one is a 10 gallon made by the same company as my 8 gallon one, The Marshall Pottery Company, Marshall Texas.  I picked this one up from an estate sale held this past weekend by Always P&P.
This great little rocking horse was a purchase made by my husband.  We went to the Garrison Auction on Saturday (I had to meet him there since I had to go to the Vintage Gathering first).  My husband went to try to get some items for the shop, but got out bid on everything he was interested in.  This little horse was the entertainment of our Little Treasurer Hunter the whole auction, so when it came up in a choice bid my hubby grabbed it for $5.00!  I think he will get about another month or two of use from it and then he will be too big.  But hubby thinks he can make a bigger version.
Good luck Treasure Hunting to all!
