When you go “treasure-hunting,” do you shop with a wish list? I do! There are a few items I always look for…..vintage Pyrex, vintage hardside luggage, orange juice decanter/glass sets and McCoy pottery are at the top of the list. Wish list items come and go depending on what’s selling in my booth. In my last post I told you about finding some Nancy Drew mystery books which have sold well the last few weeks. I also promised to tell you about the other finds Mom and I made at that estate sale.
The timing was good for a couple of my “top of the list” items. The estate sale pictures showed an orange juice glass/decanter set and Mom went straight to the kitchen and boxed them up.
The vintage Pyrex that was pictured was already taken, but they missed these cute and hard to find Pyrex child’s mugs. There is a matching divided plate and bowl that I hope to find one day….something new to put on the list!!!
While in the kitchen, I also found a reamer (a good seller for me) and this Bromwell sifter which is in great shape.
One of the downsides of a wish list is that you focus only on those items and miss other great vintage finds. I usually “shop the list” first and then focus on other items that just appeal to me in a vintage way. That’s the case when I walked out to the garage and found this framed horse picture.
The picture itself has a few problems but what appealed to me was the wooden frame with “brands” embossed on its face.
I haven’t had a chance to research this yet, but it has a 50s-60s feel to me. If you have any knowledge about it, I would appreciate any enlightenment.
