Just Some More Good Junk...

How has everybody been doing in their hunts for junk?  I seem to have no problem finding good things but I definitely feel like I have to hunt a little harder.  Estate sales are pretty quiet this time of year and the thrifts only pay out in 1 out of about 20 visits.  So this is the time of year where I tend to hit the antique malls a little more but even the ones in my area have had some really slow turnover, which is discouraging.  But I will continue with my quest for junk!  Nobody has ever called me a quitter :-)

I found a few things at the flea market the other day and picked up a couple of things on an out of town trip yesterday but the weather here has been so dreary!  So I haven't been able to take pictures yet so I'll just have to entertain you with some junk from pickings past...


I picked up the two Holt Howard pieces as well as the Christmas Card List file box at the flea market.  They are all duplicates for me but the prices were dirt cheap so I couldn't pass them up.  


I love vintage glassware so much!  One of my favorite parts about it is deciding which glass to use!


I bought this trio of juice glasses thinking I had the matching carafe.  Nope.  Guess I'm on the hunt for it now!


Maddie and I went a little crazy at Magpie Ethel's booth at Plucky Maidens!


Look at the size of that Jadeite platter!  I'm not sure if it's actually old or not but who the heck cares?!  The Fire King handled bowls were 10 bucks.  FOR BOTH!!!  Do your research sellers.  Or actually, don't.  Works out better for me that way :-)


More Plucky Maidens cuteness!  I bought the Santa matches from Magpie Ethel and for the life of me can't figure out why she didn't keep them!

That's all for now.  I'm off to find something to do outside of the house.  What I hope is the last day of our bedroom remodel (new flooring, paint, etc.) is going on and the noise is driving me batty!

Have an awesome weekend!

    1. Dang blogger, the comment box won't come up for me so I'm posting on Deb's comment because the "reply" does work, lol.

      Anyway, I'm so happy to see you back with finds. That Fire King for $10 each...eek! I love old glasses too and stare in the kitchen cabinet deciding which to use, lol, it can take so little to make us happy. :)

      Great finds all! Pam
