Seasoned treasure hunters know that more often than not the early bird catches the worm. Meaning that early morning starts, particularly on the weekends are part of the hunt. Some may groan and moan at the fact, but it's just how it is if you want to bet others to it. I for one don't mind the early morning starts when the rest of the world is sleeping and I'm bagging treasures.
In winter you can be lucky and bag a few extra and unexpected treasures, when those sitting on the fence about an early morning treasure hunt are turned off by a drop in overnight temperatures. So if you're game and you rug up you might be lucky to score a few extra beauties and not just a cold.
Here's what I mean and I'm pretty pleased because I've been nursing a virus for the last week, but that hasn't stopped me. I just add extra layers and get on with it.
1971 Moppets Fran Mar bisque porcelain boy and girl figurine/ornament........too cute for words.
1982 Australian Netta Nursery Lamp.....thank you very much.
These sweet children's fine china duo sets made in Japan.....perfect Easter gifts for little ones.
And you can't beat a mumma and her babies......this bone china miniature set of a sow and her two piglets and her expression just makes me giggle. I always have interest in people wanting to purchase miniatures, so I'm sure to they will take someone else's fancy too.
All these sweet goodies will be heading either to our Etsy store or our next fair which is next month, and a three day event no less which I'll be sharing more details with you soon. Although I'm partial to the Fran Mar figure staying with me a wee while longer.....so we will see.
Are you an early morning treasure hunter, do the drops in winter temperatures turn you off the idea of an early start to catch the treasured worm?
