What I Found This Weekend

The lustre Royal Winton Condiment set and the Chintz cups and saucers are from my 'earlier' collectibles finds. I have a great fondness for Royal Winton but like Donna of Distressed Donna Down Home I am slowly letting go of some of my collections.


Below. The top cup and saucer and tea plate is Lord Nelson Marina. The cup and saucer on the lower left is James Kent and the cup and saucer on the right is Royal Winton.



This little chintz nut dish is Florita by James Kent.


The inquisitive Royal Dux Pink and Grey Parrot joined the parade too.



The salt and peppers are 'new' additions to my collectibles and I know they will slowly leave for new homes. The ones below are ready for my booths.

These 1940/50's little salt and peppers were carefully cleaned (always a chance that some are cold painted). DH bought about 200 of the little dears, all mint in their little brown cardboard boxes. They were from a 1970 estate sale that stalled until 2015, hence the volume of so many salt and pepper, the inheritors FINALLY wanted them GONE. These were the most appealing so they are the first to leave.



The little green glasses and little pitcher are child sized. I am thinking they are from the 50's as well but I have no matching evidence. They have been moving from place to place in my house so they are going to new homes too.




A small Goebel bird arrived last week. It is on its way as well.



The footed white glass comports were also finds from last weekend and are slated for my booths.


Like Donna I did let all these beauties go into my booths.

Thanks for visiting.

  1. Joy, good job letting go of some of your collections. I'm doing the same thing, and it's hard. I don't have a booth but I've been selling a few things online and donating most things. I still have so so much but some things I'm not able to let go of...yet!

  3. Sometimes when you let the old go you find new amazing things. I love that child's pitcher and glass set.

  4. Nice finds and even nicer letting go! I love the bright colors on the James Kent pieces. That's not a name I knew until reading your blog, so it's filed away for future reference. The s/p sets are adorable. I'm sure you've got some fast sellers in there!

  5. Oh wow. This post has memories in it for me. My mom had that square milk glass candy dish with the grapes on it. I also recognize the mouse salt shaker with the pink bow(far right). I think she had that too and I have the same Goebel bird. It belonged to my aunt. I'm trying to sell some of my lusterware. It's not easy for me to list it and unfortunately, nobody wants to buy it either.

    Happy Blue Monday!

  9. Beautiful collections...we moved a couple yrs ago and I thinned my collections quite a bit. I kept things that really meant something and it feels wonderful to have less.
    I love your chintz so much...

  10. I used to think I needed things, now I wish I did not have. We all have a tendency to collect things when younger, but with age that changes. Now, not sure anyone in my family wants them.

  11. I have the glass compote on the far right sitting right now on my coffee table. I picked it up because my mom had one we used as a candy dish, so I keep candy in mine. My dad liked gumdrops so it usually held gumdrops but I'm not a fan so mine has wrapped Dove dark chocolate pieces in it. Much better!

  12. Hello, it is hard letting go of our collectibles. Hubby and I are downsizing, just in case we should move to a smaller place. You do have a lovely collection, I love the pretty parrot. Have a happy day and new week ahead!

  13. It must be hard to buy collectibles and not keep them all for yourself. I have been looking for the Royal Winton yellow chintz in a teacup or the teapot. People must be hanging on to it as rarely is it seen at our antique barns.

  17. Oh Joy, these are my favorite finds so far. I love every little thing and I am sure those who shop at your booth were thrilled to have such a lovely selection.

  18. Wow, I love everything - those cute S&Ps, the chintz dishes, and that incredible glass and pitcher set, but my favorite is the parrot. He's just lovely. Now I have another reason to make the trip up to Canada - just to see your booth. I've wanted to see the flower market in Vancouver for years.

  33. WOW. *Gulp*

    James Kent and Royal Winton go for a TON of money on ebay - hope you priced them well, those are very very valuable!

    Well done, that's what I call a GOOD DAY! : - )
