New Year's Day Auction

I haven't been to an auction in awhile, so even though the one on New Year's Day wasn't that great, I just had to go.  I was able to pick up a few goodies, while also socializing with some dealer friends who also went to the auction.

First up were all these valentines...

This one stands up.  It has honeycomb between the layers.

Some really cute unused ones.

These two have moving parts.  The girl swings and you can move the curtain up and down on the other.

These buttons were also in with the valentines.  I love when I find them on their original card.

I finally got a set of bakelite silverware. Red just isn't my color.

Decorative tins, beer steins, a cake carrier, oil can, and quadruple loaf pan.

An XL syrup dispenser, a half gallon crown jar, 3 bakelite cake breakers, and other misc kitchen stuff.

I also got an old quilt that I need to soak and wash.  I know it's not much, but after my long auction hiatus, these were some great buys.

Yesterday I went to the booth and brought all these goodies plus some others to the booths and rearranged things around.  December was my best month ever, I sold 143 things, so I had a lot of empty spots to fill.  I'll just let you enjoy these pictures...

New booth full view.



 I have so much autumn harvest Pyrex.  Does no one like this pattern?

I ended up bringing the bakelite silverware to the booth.  It's not the right color.

It's hard to get a picture in parts of my booth.

Full shot of the old booth.

 Added a ton more hankies to the hankie display.

Valentine's Day Shelf

 This is the 70s shelf. 

These are those LuRay dishes I picked up before Christmas but forgot to photograph.

I'm linking up this week with:


  1. Wowie! You know how to find vintage, Girl! Happy to see the LuRay... it is really hard to find anymore. What a great thing to do on New Year's Day...I'm not sure I've ever seen one around here, there is a local tradition to have pork and sauerkraut instead! LOL. Thanks so much for linking up with my Let's Talk Vintage party!

  2. That's some booth! Good luck with it! You have great treasures! Found your blog via Bella Rosa Antique link party. Have a great day!

  3. Just back from seven hours of moving Christmas to the back and straightening the mess left after the weekend. Your booths look so great and organized. I am wondering do your customers ever mess the place up? Love your finds - I have been on the search for a cheap Crown jar for years.

  4. You got some very cool things! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Bliss Tuesdays. Those vintage Valentines would make a great garland!

  5. You sure had a good junking start to the new year. Love those kitchen collectibles and your card and hankie display too.
