A return to thrifty finds
WELL, now that I have my craft room reorganized, I have time and space to sort and photograph treasures! So, here are a few very fun, thrifty finds from my trip to Kansas that I took time to photograph today, just to show you!
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!
