This isn't from a thrift shop, it belonged to my great aunt, I've been wanting to bring it back and forgot it so many times - the Holt Howard Kitty Cat String Holder, stamped made in Japan, 1959 - I'm not a lover of cats but I just think this is so cute. I've seen them in shops for sale - they're not cheap by any means.
There were also two of the spice kitty cats - I've looked it up on online, they came on a rack, the string holder and three spice kitty cats- I have the nutmeg and paprika - the other one was cinnamon, isn't that a strange combination??
I did find a few books, only one Eloise Wilkin one to be had - I did see some at an antique shop but I won't be paying $15 for one, no thank you!! I bought the other three because they are old and only 25 cents, I couldn't leave them there... The little Betty Crocker book - 25 cents....
I bought one piece of Pyrex and it wasn't a thrift price, I bought it at an antique shop and paid $18 - but I knew I would regret it if I didn't take it - my limit is $20 for a piece, I was carrying around a small Forest Fancies casserole, I quickly put that back when I spotted this beautiful blue Tulip.
These mugs are a bit faded but they're both Federal coffee mugs, for my fellow Canadians, you will recognize the Fuddle Duddle mug and the caricature of Pierre Elliot Trudeau, our 15th Prime Minister. I found one for sale on Ebay for big bucks, I can only hope that there's a buyer out there for mine.
I've just spent the last hour or so washing and ironing 25 scarves - I hit the mother load for scarves - 20 of those were beautiful Vera ones - I'll keep those for another post. Three of the scarves are vintage souvenir ones, I can't remember the last time I ever saw something like that in a gift shop - they have to be old - hoping for some sales on scarves in the near future..
