Treasure Trove Tuesday - This Week's Thrifting Finds

This weekend my mom and I went to a small antique show in the park and to a few yard sales too so I have a few things to share for this week's TTT!

Thrifting Finds

I love old jewelry boxes, they look really pretty all stacked up and make for some great craft storage pieces if you aren't into jewelry!


This one has pretty gold interior and is in great shape!

Price $3.99, Value $16 - $18.


Here's another jewelry related piece, it's an earring holder! These are made of metal and you put your pierced earrings into the holes to store them!

Price $1.99, Value $12 - $14.


I found a couple of cute vintage patterns, I love the pictures on these, this one is especially pretty I think.

Price .05 cents, Value $4 - $6.


And an apron pattern.

Price .05 cents, Value $5 - $6.


This is a very small picture (about 6" tall) of a pretty Southern Belle! I wish I knew more about these but I've had a hard time finding any information about them. If any of you know, I'd love to hear!

Price $1.99, Value $8 - $10.


This is a new canvas picture but I thought it would look cute in my small booth at the antique mall. Some of the items on the canvas have a raised, slick, 3D effect (like the lemons, mixing bowl, etc.)

Price $4.99, Value $14 - $16.


A pair of sweet 1960's funky mushroom valances, they don't look like they've ever been used!

Price $5.98 for the pair, Value $18 - $20.


A pair of creamers (I guess). These are from the late 1950's and are Vernon Sherwood ware by Metlox California.


Marked "Vernon ware U.S.A."

Price $1.99 each, Value $5 - $7 each.


I'm not a teapot kind of gal but I thought this one was so pretty and dainty!


Marked "Ballerina by Universal".

Price $3.99, Value $14 - $16.


And this sweet pitcher marked "U.S.A." on the bottom. From my research I found that this is called a milk pitcher and was made by Salem China. It's called American Ironstone 2. The Salem China company was located in Salem, Ohio in Columbian County. They manufactured pieces from 1930 to 1967.

Price $3.99, Value $14 - $16.


I am gathering up a collection of these old tin platters to sell as a set. I think they would make a great funky gallery wall collage!

Price $1.99 each, Value $6 - $8 each.


I love gaudy, vintage Christmas corsages like this!

Price Free!, Value $2 - $4.


Kissy face chalkware fish!

Price $4 each, Value $20 - $25 each.


I love this vintage print... it has no markings but I think it's so beautiful in a moody, dark kind of way!!

Price .25 cents, Value $18 - $20 if framed.


So that's it for this week's thrifting finds and TTT, I hope you enjoyed my finds!
