I promised to show you what I bought at this diggers antique store called
I saw lots of things I liked but the prices seemed high. I found two things and one wasn't marked. When I asked she made me a good price so I realized she would bargain with you. It was time to move on to our next stop, so these are the only two items I purchased.
Pottery of course!
The white planter was $1 (NapcoWare) and the sweet little turquoise was $3
I have a good size collection of white pottery now and plan to showcase it in my home somewhere soon.
I researched the little turquoise piece and found this out. Made by Vitreous China, San Antonio, Texas. I found these listed as Alamo Pottery and made in the late 40's - 50's. This piece is a small tulip bowl. The color is really pretty and a great addition to my pottery collection.
If I ever get up that way I will visit that store again and try to bargain more!
We then went to Seneca, SC and found 'thrift shop row'....REALLY! About 5 or 6 thrift shops on this one street. And yes I stopped at almost all of them, but really didn't buy much!
This was a fun book, I only collect S&P Orphans but it's a good reference guide and at $2 I decided to buy it.
I never pass up a good glass container especially if it's .25
My Mom has an ice cream scoop like this one and I love it so this .50 version came home with me.
My best find at the thrifts was this Japanese made flower frog.
I have quite the collection of pottery flower frogs now and plan to do a series on them soon. Only $2 so a bargain!
What have you found lately?
Come back on Monday for a giveaway!
Wishing you JOY,
