How much do you love these salt and pepper shakers?
Not just the kiwi color, but also the sort of Suessian shape -- and the back is as cute as the front!
I adore this 1950's kitchen cannister! Look at that atomic-style star on the lid!
It's a great color blue, and the stylized kitchen implements just make me swoon.
One of the things I absolutely LOVED about going to the Sparks flea market was the camaraderie with other junkers; whenever anyone saw this intact tiny mold set I bought, they gasped and drooled. They were definitely My People!
It's very clean, and even pleasantly smells like talc, inside; it is missing its little top tray, sadly, but I'm okay with that since it is so pristine! It was $3 at the flea market.
As you may know, I collect McCoy pottery of this era...
I especially loved this one for its bird theme, which was, of course, the theme of the weekend.
And this McCoy piece is that beautiful blue that I just love!
I was thrilled to find this purple plate depicting part of George Washington's history; when I visited and adored Mt. Vernon last summer, I saw purple plates like this and didn't buy them, so I've been regretting/searching for them ever since! This is my first one.
More Americana -- this time, creamer and sugar for my collection of blue and white transferware.
Again with the bird theme -- this piece of Swedish pottery had to fly home with me!
Finally -- and, sincerely -- what would a junking trip be without antique sewing notions?
Two sweet needle books from the early 1900s.
So many hours of fun and happy memories are represented here! I have so much more to show you...another day!
