Treasure Trove Tuesday - This Week's Thrifting Finds

07 March
Well, it was another great week for thrifting in my neck of the woods, I found lots of vintage goodies to share!

Thrifting finds

Let's get right to it shall we??

I found lots of ceramic goodies! Like this cute little jockey on his horse!

The jockey is missing some paint on his little blue coat but I think he's still very charming!

It's marked "Japan".

Price .75 cents, Value $6 - $8.

This is a heavy serving bowl, I love the shabby chic flowers!

It's marked "Hall's Superior Quality Kitchenware". I paid a little more than I normally would for this, but I loved it! This particular marking was introduced in 1932. You can read more about it here: Dating - Hall China Marks.

Price $7.50, Value $25 - $27.

I like the design of this plate.

Marked "Edwin M. Knowles". This mark with the ship dates this piece to the 1930's and the numbers underneath are the year and the month it was produced. This one was made in October of 1938. You can read more about Edwin Knowles china here: A Basic Guide to Dating Edwin M. Knowles China.

Price .50 cents, Value $6 - $8.

I can't believe that these two deer aren't broken!

Price $2.99 each, Value $18 - $22 each.

And this little guy is pretty cute!

Price .99 cents, Value $5 - $6.

This little bunny has a special surprise...

... he is a cotton ball dispenser!!

Marked "Larson".

Price .99 cents, Value $8 - $10.

And look at this adorable little Kewpie bell!!!

Price .99 cents, Value $8 - $10.

These are so cute!!

The one without the lid has quite a bit of crazing inside. To learn more about what crazing is and why it happens check out A Guide to Crazing, What is it and is it Good or Bad?

These are marked "Universal Cambridge Oven Proof".

Price $3.88 for the pair, Value $14 o $16 for the pair.

I like this wood and rattan tray. It has "Elsa 1956" carved into the wood.

Price $2.99, Value $16 - $18.

This little embroidered tea towel isn't in very good condition... except for the part where the blue birds are embroidered! I think it could be used to make a little bag or something.

Price .50 cents, Value $4 - $5.

I might have to keep these adorable little pigs!

They were made from an Avon stitchery kit.

Price .50 cents, Value - keeping??

This granny square (or granny circle!?) afghan is cool. They sell pretty well in my Little Boho Cottage Etsy shop.

I love how the circles are joined together.

Price $2.50, Value $22 - $24.

I always pick up recipe cards to include when I sell recipe boxes.

This is a whole box of them!

Price .50 cents, Value $5 - $6 if sold separately from a recipe box.

A couple of pretty blank Christmas cards.

Price .10 cents for 2, Value $1 each.

A letter file box.

It's cool how it opens...

Price $1.60, Value $8 - $10.

Child's chalkboard.

Price .50 cents, Value $5 - $6.

We are planning to have an artist's corner in my booth at the antique mall soon with all sorts of ephemera and artist's supplies so I've been gathering up that kind of stuff...

These old maps are one such thing.

Price $1.14 for all, Value $1 - $2 each.

Seam binding tape, laces, and buttons...

Price $1.50 for all, Value $1 - $2 each.

Wooden thread spools.

Price .90 cents for all, Value .50 cents - $1 each.

This looks like an ordinary rusty old metal can doesn't it??

NOPE!! It's been made into a handy container! I'll be using this to display some of the paper ephemera and supplies in the booth.

Price $8 (I found this at an antique shop so the price was a little higher but I thought since I'm not selling it that's ok!)

That's it this week! Do you have any favorites?

    I love it all! I went to an auction and spent $20 this weekend. Came home with about 15 boxes of miscellaneous old plates, cups, planters, oil lamps, etc (good booth filler) and FOUR quilts! :)

  3. I love seeing your thrifting finds. I think my favorites are the old dishes---so pretty!!

    What a great haul! I love the deer--actually have both, but not in white. Also love the bunny cotton keeper. I have a different bunny and a sheep -- adorable!

  5. I thought those deer looked familiar!!
