For whatever reason, the pickin's were pretty slim at the flea market this weekend. But I won't complain because my last two trips have yielded some great finds. I did manage to come home with just the right amount of vintage goodness to make my early morning wake up call worth it.
This is the first piece of pottery that I have found that is a pitcher. It is a pretty good size and I am imagining it full of flowers and on my dining room table. I haggled with the lady and she wouldn't budge on the two dollars that I was asking she take off her price. Then she said "You know what? You only live once. Am I really going to hold on to something that you could enjoy for a measly $2?". That my friends is a dealer after my own heart.
The lady that I bought this from told me that it had been sitting in her basement for the last 25 years and that she was so happy that it was coming home with me.
These two Fire King Jadite bowls aren't in the best condition but for $4.00 I couldn't pass them up. They are the perfect size bowls for cat food and water. Yes, my cat eats out of vintage Fire King bowls. Doesn't yours?
Last year at the flea market, I bought two of these Hazel Atlas bowls but in the larger cereal bowl size. These are the same size as the Jadite bowls above but will not be used for cat food. Cat food in perfect and beautiful Hazel Atlas? That's just crazy!
There is a definite theme of things that I buy at the flea market every week. Vintage cookbooks always manage to come home with me. Maddie & I decided that once a week, we are going to choose something out of one of our many old cookbooks to make. It will be a new feature on our blog!
No Pyrex at the flea market this week but I'm okay with that after the score from last time. However, there is another Pyrex hunter on the loose! I noticed that every piece of Pyrex that I passed on was gone the next time I made my rounds through. I need to find out who this person is so that I can keep my eye on them!
So Bullet will be 4 months old on Saturday. He is in that awkward teenager puppy stage where he thinks he is a big dog but still gets his feelings hurt if the older dogs are too rough with him. He weighs 42 pounds and I think I have a monster on my hands.
I need to figure out how to get the glare out of his eyes in photos. I'm still hoping that the rest of him manages to catch up with his giant feet.
Hope you are all having a good & thrifty week! My husband has a class he has to take in Vancouver, WA on Thursday so I am going to tag along and thrift while he is in class all day. It's always fun to explore a different area. Wish me luck!
