But you know what readers? It's hard to keep a good treasure hunter down. I may have to hit up way more sales than I normally would and dig a little harder but I do manage to bring some things home. Maddie & I went out Thursday, Friday, and yesterday and had some pretty decent luck.
This picnic basket was marked $10.00 which isn't a bad price at all. But evidently Maddie thought she could get it for cheaper so she marched up and offered five bucks. The lady smiled and didn't even hesitate. I wish I could lend her out to some of you guys!
I have had the little pitcher on the right for a couple of years. I didn't realize that it also came in a bigger size and was happy to find it. The guy told me he had the matching glasses for it too and promised to call me if he found them.
What better time of year to find a picnic tablecloth than Summer?
When I was in 6th grade, our music class performed South Pacific for the Spring program. I remember watching this movie with my Grandma Gloria who absolutely loved every musical there ever was. Singing In The Rain was her favorite. I don't have a record player so I am going to have Sister bring hers down the next time she visits. I wonder if I still remember the words to "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Out Of My Hair?". God help us all if I do.
I already have this Kitchen Glassware book so I am passing it on to Hanna. The little tin is marked Germany and was in the Free Box. Those Gurley Candles are reproductions but dang if they don't look EXACTLY like the originals. They will be perfect for wreath making.
Want to see my lone Pyrex find of the week? This came courtesy of my favorite antique mall and was only 3 bucks!
Normally I would be pretty bummed to only find one piece of Pyrex for the week.
But this little beauty completed a set for me! Woo-hoo!! So funny story about this set. The first three pieces I bought as a set from the exact same seller that I got the orange 501 from. What's up with that? Why didn't she have them all together at the same time? Oh well. Doesn't matter. They are all reunited and displayed with my other completed sets in my Laundry Room. Yes, I did say Laundry Room. You gotta come up with some pretty creative ways if you want to display your Pyrex!
There's more but I will save it for next time.
