What I Found (Last) Week

Some different finds this week. A good mixture of shopping venues too; local thrift stores, garage sales, out of town thrift stores and a complete surprise to me, a Community Garage Sale mixed with many vendor's open tents of an almost 'pop-up' sale of vintage. Win-win.

Footed Avocado Green Fruit Dish, Sadler Poppy and Daisy cream and sugar and Italy metal framed picture.

Sadler Poppy and Daisy teapot found weeks ago is now matched up with the cream and sugar found this past week.

Great patina on the cow cookie cutter, a metal wine holder for rolling pins and an Avocado Fondue set plus Fire King oval casseroles

Vintage, Repro 1980 Ice Cream vendor tin litho, the little boy has a rubber face.

Herb Angel found at a once-a-year (4th Saturday in August) Community Garage Sale at the Local Farmer's Market. I have already marked the date on next years calendar. The Garage Sale included (for the FIRST time) open tents with resellers of vintage. Great painted furniture, vintage kitchenware and a wonderful range of vintage home decoration items. If I had known this venue was happening I would have taken my wheeled shopping basket. I picked up more chalk type paint and wax, the herb angel, the Fire King casseroles (above) and the vintage cow cookie cutter (above).

The Sadler King Arthur's Court At Camelot Teapot and Copper Tray were picked up at a favorite out of town thrift store (a day trip).

The amber glass deco fruit bowl was a local garage sale find.

The Helmet Drinks Case was sold the day I put it the mall. I forgot to take a picture before I put it in my booth. Local garage sale find.

The Brass Jester Doorstop (about 12 inches tall) has good balance and is very heavy. The Brass Dolphins are on a round wooden base. Both were local garage sale finds.

This double faced scale was the most 'different' local find this week. I didn't take a photo before I put it in my booth. Very heavy. The makers name is in a language I can't read. Kilogram scale.

Brass Candle Holder for 5 candles along with two vintage tins, 2 copper demi cups and saucers and a small copper sugar with an attached plate, a mix of out of town and local thrift store finds.

I love visiting other blogs that share thrifted finds. Judy of 20 North Ora is one of the bloggers who give us peeks into what she finds each week along with Denise of Second Time Around Finds, Donna of Distressed Donna Down Home, Eddie of Eddie-torial Comments, Linda of A La Carte, Cathy of My 1929 Charmer and Sherry of Back 2 Vintage (and more another post).

Thanks for stopping by to visit.
