The snowstorm that was to be never came to the Northeast. But we do have very frigid temperatures. Best to stay indoors.
Except when there is a 30% off sale at the VOA!! And take another 20% off for senior discount! At the VOA, you are considered a senior at 55. Works for me!
I brushed all the snow off the truck, all bundled in my parka, scarf, ear muffs and thickest gloves. It was only 5 minutes down the road. I could do this in -10 degrees!
I am so glad I did!
I found some great treasures. Wanna see 'em?
I love Black Americana and this Mammy cookie jar is a great example of it. It is ceramic and a reproduction of the ones made in the 1940's and 1950's.
The cut crystal basket with the silver trim and handle is precious. I haven't done any research on it yet.....anyone know it's age?
I don't make deviled eggs, but I loved this milk glass dish with the scalloped gold edge.
And the square bowl is so beat up as to be desirable, to me anyways! The lighter area looks like a butterfly.
I am always drawn to the brown drip dishes. I have had many of them go in and out of my shop, from the coffee pot to the chip and dip dish. This is my first 2 tier candy/dessert dish and I grabbed it up. It is in perfect condition. This picture is before I cleaned it up!
I have a shelf full of these Ball jars with the wire clasp over the glass lid. But I can't part with mine yet, so I bought this one to put in my shop. It needs a little cleaning up too!
I am not sure I did it out loud in the store, but I squealed with delight when I saw this little dish and little cups. It has Sorrento hand written on the plate and each of the cups. I have no idea what it is for.....espresso?
I just had to have it because my husband and I went on a tour of Italy for our honeymoon and Sorrento was my favorite place we visited. I already broke one of the little cups transporting it, but four seems to fit on the plate better!
Oh, these bunnies! Too cute! All rough and textured porcelain with little pink noses and fluffy bows on their backs. It's going to be hard to list these!
I was in and out of there in about 20 minutes and back home. It was one of the better half hours I've thrifted in a while! I was happy and stayed in my warm house the rest of the day.
If you have to have any of these treasures, I will be listing them in my Etsy shop in the next week or so. If you don't see the bunnies, I think you'll know why!!
