A new open-air flea market opened a couple of weeks ago and Mom and I decided to go check it out this weekend. There were the usual rummage sale (clothes and toys) kind of booths, but there were also a couple of booths selling some nice vintage things. On the way back, we happened upon a yard sale held by a lady with a great eye for vintage. So this has been a good weekend for treasure-hunting!
I found a large Johnson Bros platter and a very elegant piece of
in the Vesper pattern. The aqua blue color is gorgeous. I wish I knew what to call the piece. Is it a compote/comport or a vase? Fostoria
Here’s a close-up of the pattern.....
If you love cobalt blue, you’ll love this vase with applied flowers. I’ve heard this style called Bohemian glass. Have you heard the same or differently?
For those of you that swoon over roses and ironstone, I found a sweet little Homer Laughlin pitcher/creamer and a tiny framed botanical print.
And there were also some fun, kitschy finds like a blue Pyrex fridgie (refrigerator dish) from the primary colors set (no lid, boo hoo), an American Bisque chick jug with gold trim, a forest green tumbler with a fringed surrey and a cute windmill juice glass.
There was also a colorful noisemaker marked "The Life of the Party" and a metal globe pencil sharpener.
I also bought a couple of “projects” that I’ll be sharing with you soon.
What did you find this weekend?
