These are Tuesday's finds. Tuesdays are a good day to go looking in this area because seniors get 10% off at the grocery store and at Goodwill! There are a couple of thrift stores in the area that open on Tuesdays too. And since our writers group meets on Tuesday mornings now, I know I'll be in town, for all sorts of good reasons. (I still laugh when I think that I qualify for a senior's discount because I don't think of myself that way, but the calendar says otherwise.)
Here's a closer look:
A crewel-work picture, small white platter, hand-braided small rug, a handmade cup, saucer and plate that have the name "Suzanne" on them (anyone know a Suzanne?), a glass mug with white trees frosted on it,
cute wooden cabinet (needs to be repainted, but still, a wood shelf with wood drawers for a quarter?!), green glass tree jar, frosted deer candle holder, tiny glass ornaments, red and green votives a pretty pink tea cup and white china teacup (I have a saucer for it), a stained glass garden spike,
Last Tuesday I went to Wheeling, WV and came back with a carload. Here's a little of what I found on that trip:
Wexford juice goblets, made by Anchor Hocking in the 60's. There is still a lot of this around for a reasonable price, and it's certainly a nice addition to a table.
Large pink Depression glass fruit or salad bowl with cute ball base--I haven't been able to identify the maker of this bowl, or the patter although it looks very like the Queen Mary pattern by Anchor Hocking.
Beautifully aged yellow and green plates. I have been unable to find out anything about them but I really like them, even with all the crazing and staining.
This beautiful jam jar is just stunning. It has a little crack near where the slot for the spoon is but even with that, it's a beauty.
So that's some of my recent finds. Have you been out junking this week? What did you find?
