Tall Empoli (Italy) bottle had a few chips on the bottom of the stopper. Will it sell like that? We shall see. I found several ceramic bird figurines, and have a hard time parting with them!
Then there's this striped Hazel Atlas sugat bowl, and a couple sweet teacups.
I have not been able to identify the maker of this dish, so listed it on ebay as unknown maker.
Look how it lights up in black light! I think it is 1920's-30's era, and some glass collectors I've asked about it think it is of European make. The color comes from uranium in the glass, but don't worry, it won't kill you!
The nutcracker is cast iron, a reproduction.
sweet old muslin pillowcase--only one, but such a pretty pattern. Some people make aprons from them.
And vintage curtains with matching tea towel. There's a stain you can see on the bottom of the curtain. Maybe it will come out. I can hope.
Cheese domes are still a popular item, and I have seen new ones in the stores. I don't have one in my kitchen. Do you? Do you use it? Wondering if I should keep this one.
And a very cool clock. This one is lucite or acrylic (are those the same thing? I need to find out.) with fly fishing lures embedded.
Best find, I think, were these two wineglasses found for $1.00 each at a local thrift. I listed them on ebay for $59.99 each and they sold in two hours. These are Waterford Crystal from Ireland, in the Colleen pattern, and they are marked. The only other one for sale on ebay was $110 for one! I thought that was ridiculous, so priced mine more reasonably--although it still seemed pretty high to me.
Another good find for $1 was this lovely Limoges plate. It also sold quickly on ebay for $30.
This is a small cereal bowl, and it glows too under black light. I have not yet identified the maker.
A small amber Blenko bowl along with a couple Japanese egg vases, and you can see the corner of an International Glass banana dish.
Last but not least, little Santa candle holders. I already have one pair of them, so these will be for sale. I think. They're awfully cute.
Maybe in January I'll be out on the hunt again, but for now, that fun is on hold, unless of course I run into something too good to pass up!
