I hope all of you had a special Father’s Day weekend. We visited with one of Mr. B2V’s lovely daughters at her home in
. We had a wonderful time and made some sweet memories to tide us over until we see her again. Tennessee
While we were travelling, I hoped to spot some new junking places and find all sorts of fun things to show you today. While I did find a few things, mostly I ended up “doing research.” That’s what I call it when I browse an antique store whose offerings are just a little too expensive to buy for resell. My “research” consists of comparing my prices to those of other dealers and touching items that I’ve only seen in books. I find it helps to hold and feel antiques so you can recognize them when you find them in unusual places…...like at yard sales!
Though I did a lot of “research” this weekend, I did find a few things to show you.
This lonely Fiesta shaker came home with me. I think Homer Laughlin calls this color turquoise!
I also found another set of Hazel-Atlas ball salt and pepper shakers….this time with red caps, which I’ve never seen before.
And last, but certainly not least, I found two fridgies (Pyrex refrigerator dishes). Both were the small 1-1/2 cup size and both had their lids: one is in the Spring Blossom Green pattern and the other is a bright lemon yellow which could be part of the Friendship set.
Did you do any “research” this weekend?
