A Good Weekend At Estate Sales

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 

Swizzle Stick-o-Mania!

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,

    Wow you really found some mad stuff! I'm guessing you collect any and all pyrex rather than just one pattern? I love that record box the best.xx.

  2. Hello! Just found your blog! Looks like you had a GREAT weekend!! Good stuff!Beth

  3. Kitty, I am always looking to finish my Shenanadoah Cinderella mixing bowl set (I only have two out of the four) but other than that, I want it ALL. I envision a rainbow of Pyrex-Delight! :)Beth, your blog is way fun!
