Had a great weekend at estate/tag sales. I purchased a nice mix of collectibles, impulse treasure, and even got a few things to add to my vintage kitchen. First, the Pyrex:
|“Daisy” Mixing Bowl|
|I love this one!!|
|Square baking dish and “Golden Poinsettia” Casserole dish
I was very excited to add to my collection. I also picked up these ADORABLE “snack” plates with built in rest for a tea cup and what I *think* is a thumb rest for someone to hold the plate on their lap. Cookies and tea? Coffee and cake? I’m crazy about the atomic-esque pattern on them!
|The lady at the estate sale said these were from the 40’s
and were made in Japan.
My favorite thing however was this AMAZING psychedelic case for your 45 records – and it was FULL of awesome hit songs from the late 60’s – early 70’s.
|Don’t stare too hard, you might break out
into bell-bottoms! Far out!
Then today, Randy and I found this great Columbia Compact Stereophonic record player at an estate sale, a little dusty but in perfect working condition (needs some velvet or thin foam on the turntable) – and we had a crazy listening party with all of the great 45’s in my snazzy case.
Some of the great songs? The are ALL in excellent condition, too – all of them had jackets. I don’t remember EVER keeping the jackets of my 45’s. Maybe it’s because I never had a great case like this for mine, I had a shoe box.
My other favorite stuff:
|Fabulous Fondue pot…in RED one of my
kitchen accent colors. Bring chocolate, stat!
|Glass pearls and crystals and other weird stuff I can use
in my decoupage
|Wood rooster canisters|
|Lots of great vintage swizzle sticks from places
that don’t exist anymore…love them!
Randy also picked up some dumbbells for the home gym and we picked up a little end table for $5.
I had BIG PLANS for some jewelry making tonight but I am now more inclined to read a book and lay around and maybe even go to bed early,
