Saturday morning was cold! There were no estate auctions, so I hit up a couple of garage sales. Only picked up a few things.
Some cat-eye woman's eye glasses, some vintage drinking glasses, and a couple of Federal Glass white iridescent mugs.
Sunday was warm, sunny, and absolutely beautiful (except for the whole getting dark early part). There was an estate auction that I attended after church, where I picked up several items.
Among them, this Made in Japan tea pot with cream and sugar set.
A Fire King red dot mixing bowl (large size).
A green glass batter bowl. It isn't marked, but the handle on it sure looks like the handle I have on a couple of old Fire King pieces. Anybody have any idea who made it?
A Queen Anne Glasbake bowl with two handles (I really like this one!).
Two Jeanette Jadeite shakers. One is marked "Flour" and is in pretty good shape, the other is marked "Sugar" and the top is dented and the wording is faded. However, the glass on both pieces is in great shape.
A vintage manicure / pedicure set.
A set of Lenox silver flatware (a couple of the pieces are pretty rough).
These Made in Japan salt and pepper shakers are really interesting. They look like black kettles, but they have cat faces on them. Anybody know anything about them?
I also came home with this Noritake lustre creamer.
I love vintage prints, and these two are great. Now, just to clean them up!
This is my favorite out of the pictures I picked up. I love that great antique frame!
Lastly, to appease the teacher side of me, I found this great set of subtraction flash cards for the "new math". LOL...strange how we've moved on since "new math". This set is copyright 1965.
I am wanting to either start a booth, or maybe put a few of these things on Etsy to get an idea if I would like selling that way. Anybody want to give any insight as to their thoughts on selling on Etsy? I think I would prefer to have a booth, as I can easily get out to restock it, and I won't have to figure out when I can make it to the post office (my job keeps me away during the hours that the counter is open at the post office). Also, with a booth, I can put some bigger things in it that I don't want to send through the mail. It's decision making time.
