Surprise Sale

It was quite a surprise to see a single yard sale listed in the classifieds last week, especially since it mentioned vintage glassware. Mom and I made sure to check it out and here's what we found.....

This 6-bottle Victorian castor set is gorgeous and I've already tagged it for sale ......



I found 4 pieces of Fostoria in the Coronet pattern......



This is not glassware, but I was excited to find a vintage GE electric knife w/fork and wall holder in the original box.....



These 2 English Hobnail footed tumblers were quite the find......



On the fun side, there was a huge iced tea glass!



A copper, wood and crystal lazy susan will be great for holiday entertaining.....



Pretty plates from Johnson Bros, Avon China and a cup/saucer by Homer Laughlin......



A these beautiful ruby red pieces are perfect for the Christmas season......

Year-End City-Wide Yard Sale

I’ve told you before about the City-Wide Yard sales held at our city’s multi-purpose building. Since they are held inside, there are no weather worries so shopping is the main concern. There are three sales per year and the final sale of 2014 was held last weekend. Mom decided not to go this time, so I was on my own. I sure could have used one of those rolling shopping baskets. Even without one, I carried home these goodies….

A shell-pink Baltimore Pear creamer, a gorgeous demitasse cup/saucer, a crystal butter dish and a doily…….



4 Boopie juice glasses and 2 Avon Cape Cod ruby candle holders…..



A few Little Golden Books…..



Wet/dry measuring cup, vintage metal matchbox holder, nut grinder and biscuit/donut cutter….



Of course, Pyrex! Snowflake open sugar & creamer and Spring Blossom Green butter dish…



I found all of the above in my first trip around the building. I decided to make an additional round and I am so glad I did. Look what was hiding under a table….



A vintage Towne leather suitcase…..



 It even came in handy for carrying 
some of my purchases to the car!

Just Three Weeks!

Rudolph is headed back to town in just three weeks! Yikes! I’ve GOT to get busy decorating the house for the holidays.



Maybe, like me, you’re a little late in decking the halls so I thought I would show you these elegant Spode Christmas Tree ornaments to get you in the mood to get those boxes down from the attic and start the decorating.




Train Engine


Rocking Horse


Plate and Golden Spoon

  
These ornaments, as well as several vintage ornaments, are available in my booth.

  

Do you own a piece of Spode Christmas Tree china?
