Junkin Finds 1-15-15

I love to go junkin! 
I love the thrill of the hunt.  You never know what you might find.  I especially love finding things I'll use in my home.  Dishes are high on my list since I love to tablescape.  Here are some of my recent finds!
These pretty pink bowls were a great find a .10 each so I bought all 7.  Not sure if they are repro's or original depression glass, but they are pretty and a great price!
This Longaberger basket was .25 I think it's a small berry basket and a great size!  Longaberger baskets don't seem as popular as they once were, but they are well made and I love and use baskets all the time...Score!
I have a fairly large collection of egg coddlers and finding these three berry pattern coddlers for .25 each was too good to pass up.  I love this small size.  I think this collection will be back in the cubbies soon!
Mary Alice Hadley is an American artist who combined her knowledge of clay to her art to create these unique dishes since the 1930's
When I saw these dishes at my local thrift shop, I knew what they were.  In addition to the three mugs and one bowl, I got these plates
Two 9" Breakfast plates
Three 6" Bread plates

They have been well used and have flatware marks on them, but the designs are still sweet!
I bought all of these for $5
I will use them in a tablescape and then try to find them another home.  If interested, let me know, my prices will be low!
I will keep one of the mugs because I love what it says inside
The End! 

Wishing you JOY,

Linda

Lovin' the little berry basket Linda, I'm sure it will be filled with something fun:@)

What a GREAT POST! I Love posts that I learn little 'tid-bits' from :-) !! I see those small covered pots around and never had any idea they were for 'eggs'!? ...and that pottery! Never heard of that artist before.
You had a VERY GOOD day!!

Rebecca said...

My goodness, Linda! You really found some great items.

I haven't been thrifting for a LONG time. This makes me want to get "out there"! :)

Melissa said...

Great finds AND prices! I would've bought all that stuff too, especially at those prices. I've never heard of Mary Alice Hadley before, so you've given me something new to be on the look out for. I do love that those mugs say "The End" at the bottom - so sweet! :)

Holy Moly, what great finds. The basket is totally cool (expecially as I am originally from Ohio) and I have always wanted a couple of coddled egg cups and I never seem them at thrifts! The Hadley dishes "not my colors" but I would NOT have turned up my nose at them and would have grabbed for those prices. Amazing finds...

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

You did it again...so many fun treasures at rock bottom thrifty prices. I have an egg coddler just like the ones you found; it belonged to my grandmother and it's perfect for holding little trinkets. Thanks for sharing Linda.

The Hadley dishes were a great score!

Kathe said...

Once again, great finds at ridiculously low prices! Love them all but the mug is my favorite too :-)

Connie said...

Hello Linda, Wow! I want to go shopping with you :) I found you from a comment that you left on Carol's blog Art & Sand and had to come check your blog out. I would follow but I don't see where to do that. At the moment I am celebrating my three year blogging birthday with a Give-A-Way, so, please come visit, get your name in the hat and tell be where your follow button is. I know that there are many more antiques in your part of the country compared to ours, but you really know how to find beautiful things. It takes some real "know how" to shop that well.
Have a lovely day and I hope to hear from you.
Connie :)

Hi Linda,
You have been a busy girl. I love those darling pinkish plates. They do look like the real thing. Love all your finds. BTW, you look fabulous in your profile pic.

hugs

Nellie said...

I have never run across any egg coddlers, and I would have snatched those berry ones up in a hurry! I've a collection of Longaberger baskets, and I'll guarantee you that I paid more than .25 for my strawberry basket! That's a real bargain! xo Nellie

Marigene said...

Wow, you hit the jackpot! Love the pottery...and I still haven't come across an egg coddler...I look every time I am out. Now that I want a couple apple bakers, do you think I can find any...nope! For a while I saw 2-3 every time I was in a thrift store.

Sarah said...

Linda, your thrift store has great prices! The Hadley pottery was a fun find indeed. It is very collectable. The egg coddlers are pretty. We are going through and editing out some kitchen things. I have 3 coddlers I'm happy to send you if you want them. They are the larger size. Two are plain white, and one is Royal Worchester in a fruit or berry design. Would love to send them your way if you want them. '-)

Vicky Hunt said...

Great finds Linda and you always find such good deals! Those egg coddlers are so pretty. U never see those anywhere. The basket is so pretty and what a steal! They are so expensive normally. Those dishes are too cool. Enjoy all your new treasures! Have a great weekend...:)

Hugs, Vicky

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

What wonderful finds. It's so nice when things have a mark or name so you know what it is. (or google it if you're like me) Enjoy your weekend Sis! Hugs, Diane

ImSoVintage Laura Walker said...

These are all such great finds, Linda. When I finally get to move to Georgia we are going to meet up and go junking together. That will be after we have a huge gab fest. xo Laura

Diane said...

Amazing finds at amazing prices. You must be the queen of the great buys!!!

Ivy and Elephants said...

Love all your neat finds, and those prices can't be beat! Pretty pink dishes!

Pam~ Virginia Retro said...

Can I come shopping with you Linda? Those prices are amazing and you found wonderful goodies. Love the hand painted dishes, and the pink bowls also. Sweet! :)

Shelia said...

Hi Linda! Oh, you just find the most wonderful things! Love the pink depression glass bowls and the pottery - so sweet! Glad you're having fun. Thank you so much for popping in to see me and your sweet comments.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Linda, from a confessed dishaholic--you did GOOD! Great finds and prices! Blessings, Cecilia

Feral Turtle said...

WOW! You did score BIG TIME. That basket was a steal! I am always on the lookout for egg coddlers and there never seems to be any in sight. Love all of your new dishes.

EM said...

Love the pink bowls. I have a thing for egg coddlers, because I like the work "coddler." The first one I ever found, I thought was a trinket jar b/c I had never heard of an egg coddler. I can never find Longaberger in the "wild" so good catch! You do know that Mary Ann Hadley was based in Louisville, right? She left Louisville Stoneware to start her own company, which is still going strong here. That ship plate is one mf my favorites and I love the "The End" in the cups. Good finds!

Tuula @ Thrifty Rebel said...

What great finds! Those dishes are amazing and of course I love the pink bowls. So pretty!

Estelle's said...

Oh how I love all of these little treasures....especially the egg cups and the depression glass plates. You have inspired me to go on a treasure hunt!!! Grea post Linda!

laura sampson said...

oh wow those dishes are just AMAZING I never ever find anything like that for 10 cents I mean even kids books are a quarter! You must live it a GREAT thrifting town lucky duck!

Diana Petrillo said...

Great finds, Linda! Love the pink bowls--on the surface, they don't seem like repros to me. You taught me something new today! I've never heard of Mary Alice Hadley--love her fun, folky designs. Have a great week :)
