Time to sell #vintage #Olympics stuff! ... See MoreSee Less

Time to sell #vintage #olympics stuff!

Comment on Facebook

I have a pretty little cobalt glass vase from Lillehammer '94, but it sits on the ledge of the old double-hung windows along with the rest of the cobalt glass widgets, so no need to sell it. (Paid $1 at thrift store a few years ago.)

Plus a set of Sterling silver 1996 charms, bar, torch and flag.

We have 1980 Olympics stamps, but it was boycotted by Russians. Worth?

I have stuff! lol

I have several Olympic pins from 1992, 96, 2001, 2002, and a key chain from 2002.

So sweet! 😘

Crystal, was a blue tick with one blue eye and one brown eye…. She was named after Crystal Gayle… because of her song 🎶 “Don’t it make your brown eyes blue” Also our ferrets are Ferret Bueller and Vin Weasel.

Dr Lori I want to be your apprentice can I be?

Our cows are cinnamon,nutmeg and ginger we’re spicy😂

My chocolate lab is named after chocolate syrup. His name is Bosco

My chickens "were" Chicken Cacciatore, Fried Chicken, Chicken Alfredo, Chicken & Waffles, and Kristen (after my daughter)

My Bruno after Bruno Mars. Because he is so handsome.

Sarrbrücken after the city in Germany that he came from, but we call him Saar for short. If we call him by his full name he knows he's in trouble. 😅🤣

Marcela Valladolid, 1 of my Chihuahuas

Pippa......Pippa Middleton

Dharma and Gregg from the tv show

My cat is named Frankie after Frank Sinatra (My dad was his #1 fan) Frankie is half Siamese and until he was about 2 months old, he had blue eyes. They eventually turned light green! lolol By then he was stuck with Frankie <3 He's 14 now and always does it "His way" 😉

I had a friend with a farm that named a cow after me too! I was very complimented!

Not really named after anyone but I have Minja, cuz he like a ninja and black cat, speckles (specz) has speckles on her nose, n Mickey who should have been wizard he's a black cat with a white beard lol

I have my best bud a cat named Zorro. He is mainly white and gray but has black fur around his eyes like the mask of Zorro. Lol

Ziggy Stardust! I had Marvin (Gaye) and Otis (Redding) - they’re in kitty heaven now ❤️ We also had Marcus (Aurelius) and Maximus (Max) from Gladiator. Both over the rainbow bridge as well. 💔

TBoz from tlc Tionne the poodle Prince a cat named after the legendary Prince of Purple rain.

All my farm animals are named after people who did amazing things during WWII. My billy is named after Eugene Roe (101st medic). I also have sister goats who are named Hannie and Freddie, named after two teens who contributed to the Dutch resistance. I have 30+ animals, all with historic related named. 😅

I had a Pug named Deniro, because he always had that "You talking to me?" look on his face. And I have a Maltese mix named Pacino, because every time he tries to get out I have to pull him back in. 😄😄

A cow - how cool!! Since my name is Missy, there are a whole lot of cats and dogs with my name, but none actually named after me! My pets: Cat - Beau after the Beau Rivage in Biloxi (we love that place.) Cat - Wolf because he looks like one Rabbit - Houdini because he can hide and you can never find him.

Our dog is named Henry François- he has a French middle name because my husband was in France( for work) when we adopted him- we had him a week before the hubby could meet him

My grandfather named a calf after me too!

My dog (a Jack Russell) is named after the Artful Dodger, the Charles Dickens character.

Dogs are Grady, Cooper and Daisy. We also have a cat that my granddaughter named when she was 3. Her name is Angelina Ballerina 😀

My grandkids learning how to write in cursive in kindergarten

Ketchup, organic

Idk, 500 seems high. It's not a fountain pen - that's where the money is.

What is a bog mistake? 😁😁😁

I thought at first you meant bog oak.

I used my MB pens everyday at work!! I loved writing with it… and they were ink pens… black ink only!!
