I got a few nice finds yesterday, and since it is Sunday, I'm going to relax and just share my new finds with you. I haven't had a chance to clean any of them up yet, so you get to see them just as they were when I bought them. If you want to see one of the pictures larger, just click on it. First off, I got this great aluminum Pepsi-Cola cooler. The lid is a little dented and the metal on the bottom has a place where it is going bad, but it still looks great in my opinion. It will be great to display and have as storage as well. Secondly, I got this great starburst style electric clock, which does work. The clock was manufactured by United Metal Goods and I love the style. Third, I found these really cool ceramic pheasant wall hangings. There is no marking on them to indicate who manufactured them, but they sure seem to have a great mid-century feel to me! Finally of the things I would like to share today, I found this great green (chartreuse?) and gray planter made by Shawnee. I really like this color combination. Must remember this combination for future use in my house, I'm thinking a spare bedroom. What do you think? I'm thinking gray and green would look really good with my new Heywood Wakefield bedroom set.
I got a few more things that I haven't pictured or discussed, and I'll just quickly list them. I'll probably get around to sharing more about them this winter when the estate sales slow down and I need topics to write on. I got a great working electric RCA Victor AM/FM tube table radio in a wooden case that needs to be refinished. I also got an antique press-back oak dining chair to strip and refinish, a red aluminum serving tray and an aluminum pitcher with three colored tumblers.
I had a question for more pictures of the door knocker and peep-hole in my front door. I'll try to feature them tomorrow.
Church, Sunday School, and an Ad-Council meeting this morning. Have a relaxing Sunday!
