|Fave find of the day: this jug, for a mere 5 singles, that matches the three glasses I inherited from my grandmother last week|
All sorts of electric, and all sorts of friends. Static, magnetic, circuitous...human, animal, mineral.....the list goes on.
One thing is for sure, vintage stuff, of any kind, is always the magnetic kind for me!
So I was thrilled this morning, albeit bleary-eyed (& not enamoured of the hour-long & very foggy drive)....to have the annual opportunity for some serious early-morning hunting, with some guaranteed finds. Here's what I came home with.
Gorgeous pale pink tiffany ceiling shade.
Capodimonte urn...why am I buying this....perhaps we shouldn't go there! No, in all seriousness, its for resale at an antique fair in January.
Old cyclops trike with tin wheels.
Blue Depression glass perfume bottle.
Crystal lamp, always a winner with the over-60s.
Bohemia glass purple cordial set, with original label.
Yes, I *know* what this looks like! But in fact it's a figural crab jelly mould.
Red anodised kitchen set...apparently people can't get enough of this stuff right now.
Loving these!!!! Antique tin scoops. BUGGER they don't suit my retro red kitchen :(
BOOBIES!!! No not really, he he, they in fact are cast iron donut makers. Who knew??
Tooled leather bag, always a classic, best bit for me is the unusual strap.
Awesome leather saddle bag/shoulder bag, long strap.
Gamble of the day-coz it wasn't cheap. Oak barrell, I don't think it's as old as the seller claimed, but still, a fab piece....so for my 'gamble piece' of the day (that's something I often do, buy everything safe, except for one piece) I got this.
Impulse purchase, so cheap I couldn't resist. But now they're really growing on me! Perhaps I shouldn't admit publicly that this is my third set of wooden canisters!
Cake plate, obviously. Tudor ware.
Frabjous, darling! I snapped this peachy pink 50s/60s cordial set right up the second I saw it-these babies are getting harder and harder to find with the full complement of 6 glasses.
Can you believe I bought this for VB and she hardly even looked at it?! Little bugger! It's now on show atop her wardrobe, so if she doesn't take to it soon, it'll be onsold. It's a darling little white-painted wooden childs basket, totally ideal for dolls or whatever kids want o cart around.
So, not bad for a mornings hunting, eh? I was home by 9.30am, and thats including the hour drive.
What treasures have you found this weekend??
