A Few Recent Finds

I have not shown you any new finds for a while. Here's a few I picked up in recent weeks.

A trio of pink and pretty vintage light shades nestled in a hammered brass log basket at my Marietta booth,

and a pretty calico Erphila vase, made in Poland, seemed at home in a green glass bowl in my display case.

At home, I pulled together these red and green cups to go with crystal snack plates. These will be in my Ravenswood booth this week; they make a nice touch for the holiday table.

I loved these embroidered white linen napkins, a set of 8 in new condition. The photo doesn't do them justice--I have them packed in a plastic envelope.
These pretty dishes are heading to my Ravenswood booth too--a dogwood painted, gold-trimmed dish, a hanpainted floral glass vase and ablue carnival fruit bowl.

I thought this little picture, an original painting,  was so reminiscent of winter farm fields. It's resting on one of 4 matching calico placemat/napkin sets.

I can never resist these old tin trays. I bet I have a dozen of them!

That's a quick look at a few finds. I hope to show you more this week if time allows.

Hi Sue - I always enjoy your posts with things you have found and put into your booths. Chintz is one of my favorites so I loved the little vase with the fresh bright flowers. I've added about as much Christmas themed stock as I have. Nativity figures, wooden soldiers, ceramic/lighted Christmas trees (one sold right away), Christmas themed plates and china and bells. I don't collect as much Christmas themed stock as I used to. Shoppesr are more often looking for Christmas presents rather than decorations for Christmas. Have a great week.

well, (no) surprise! I love them all. I am a collector of linen/30s/40s table cloths. The napkins of the fancier sets weren't used. Just looked at I guess. I have several sets of 4/6/8 fancy napkins. And painted trays . . . well I have several. More than I need. But still, love them all.

You have some lovely things there - I really like the little dogwood dish and the painting.

Joy, that's a good point. I have very little Christmas to sell, and had decided to keep it simple this year. I've added a couple vintage Christmas tablecloths and napkins, and have a few ornaments and some jewelry. That's going to be about it, I think.

Nance, I wondered how people could keep them so pristine! That explains it.

I like that little dish too, Rowan. I am attracted to those made-in-Japan items from the 50's and 60's. Maybe because they were so inexpensive when I was growing up?

Your painted tray looks just like a set of TV trays my mom had when I was growing up. If there are rivets on the bottom just like I can see on the top, I bet that's what it is. Batsy

You made a great haul. And what perfect cups for Christmas!
