Yesterday we spent the afternoon at a local auction, it was hosted by a small antique and collectible shop in town, Second Hand Treasures. There was a lot of great merchandise, it was a fun filled all afternoon affair and then supper out, it was perfect!! My husband bid on a vintage Pop-o-matic Trouble game, it went too high, boo hoo!! It was nice too, the pieces were wooden, not plastic! I missed out on a piece of pink depression glass, once again, it went for more than I was willing to pay!
We only ended up with two items though - here's what my husband bought - he is more excited about this than me, it's a vintage drafting table, there was a paper with it, from the 30's. He's an engineer, that's why he goes for things like that!! He's happy!
I had my eye on a bowl the whole auction, then when the auctioneer said they were going to wrap it up and take the rest back to the store, oh, no, not a purchase for me... So, we're in the line up to pay for the beautiful drafting board, the owner comes along and asks if I got lots of stuff, I said I got nothing, I was waiting for that bowl - he said he would sell it to me, $2 for me... Look what I got...
It's the largest of the Fire King tulip mixing bowls - how pretty is that? I don't collect Fire King and I won't be starting but after finding those cute salt and pepper shakers, minus the covers, in Prince Edward Island for $2, I just wanted that bowl and now I have it! I've placed it on the corner shelf, love it!! Sometimes it pays to know people in a small town!! Thank you, Chad!
I haven't been buying many dishes lately, because, really, I have plenty but sometimes you see things and you just have to purchase - you know what I mean?? Last week I found these treasures...
I couldn't pass up this Friendship 401 bowl, not for $1, I couldn't!!
I have a couple of pieces of this English Pyrex in the Snowflake pattern, but no plates and none with the marking on the bottom that this one has - Jobling, Opalware, Made in England, my other pieces just have JAJ - it's a sweet little plate.
I think I paid 25 cents for this little souvenir from Prince Edward Island - Woodleigh Replicas is no more so it's a neat little piece of the past. I have a couple more PEI souvenirs the same style, oh, no, hope I'm not starting a new collection...
This isn't old but when it comes to anything Snoopy related and it's Halloween, if it's cute, I'll be buying it!
I bought this old coloring book to use for SMASHing - it's not even used - copyright 1986. Older pop up books are hard to come by in good condition, I picked up this one to add to my Christmas book collection - it's in perfect shape, every tab is in working order, the book was given to Leane from Aunt Deb in 1978.
This week I am going to visit my daughter on an over night trip, there's a few thrift shops there, hope I find something fun!
