Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending, what I believe, was the last outdoor/onsite auction of the season. The forecast was that it was going to be cold. I checked the radar before I left the house and there was not so much as a green dot on it. So, I bundled up in boots, 3 layers, a scarf, and a hat. And for the first hour or so, that was enough. Then it started sprinkling. Then raining rather hard. Then it rain turned to sleet. I debating leaving so many times. However, the prices were just too good to leave. So, I suffered for getting the good stuff for my etsy stores.
I found this great box of Christmas stuff...
|Feather tree ornaments - all sold already!|
|There were these cute little boxes...|
|A tavern candle box...|
|Here's the contents. Tavern and gurley candles and a|
spun cotton santa.
|And a shoe box of old ornaments.|
Onto the non-Christmas items...
|Orange enamel coffee pot, baby blue scale,|
canisters, and old chalkboard.
|Bottom of the canisters - Old Reliable Coffee and Tea|
|I'm having a hard time deciding if I am|
going to part with this or not.
|The scale will look really great once I|
clean it up completely.
|Enamel and aluminum cream pails, aluminum pitcher cups|
and coasters, tin trays, and match holder.
|Lots of stoneware crocks.|
|7up crate, 2 mini oil lamps (to add to my ridiculous |
collection), green and red handle kitchen tools.
|Lots of buttons.|
|On the original cards.|
|Ceramic Christmas Tree.|
On to the Goodwill finds from this week...
|Cake carrier with awesome blue glass knob.|
|Empire plastics trick or treat pails, putz|
house, 2 cotton mice picks, bakelite
spatula, and green handle cookie cutter.
Have a great Sunday!
