We're cleaning out our attic in preparation for renovations.

Pillsbury Bakeoff cookbooks. Actually the little booklets that came out. I have one from the 7th cook-off (1st edition)and the 11th. They were my mil's. They're very cool actually!

A John B Taylor covered casserole dish. I also have some Stangl - various patterns.

I don't know if you're thinking of selling them on eBay, but a good way to get an idea of what they're going for is to search Completed Listings. It's a box you can check over on the lower left side (you have to be signed in to do it). Then you can sort them by highest ending auction first, and see. Here's an example for the Stangl. It just depends on what kind of pieces you have: Stangl Completed listings (http://search-completed.ebay.com/stangl_W0QQcatrefZC6QQfisZ2QQfromZR32QQfsooZ2QQfso pZ3QQsacatZQ2d1QQsaprchiZQQsaprcloZQQsbrsrtZd)

I've done what Heidi suggested to find out the true market value of things. Will you remember us when you're rich???? :D

Thanks Heidi! Now, if I could just remember my e-bay sign in and password. It's not what I thought but I'll figure it out. We've also got a great consignment store nearby so I might just take it over there.

Oh yes, Lisa, I'm all about the little people. :p
