A little Show and Tell...
Pictured above (on my newly painted kitchen counter tops) are five sweet ironstone butter pats that I found in the booth of Vicki Potter on Butternut Hill in Bouckville.
Here is an old ironstone bowl that I took a chance on...
(risked $4...I know...I'm such a risk taker :))
...it was so dirty...almost black with grime and mud.
She cleaned up pretty good!
Another budget friendly piece of ironstone...
My shopping buddy Judi and I split the cost of a box of this old Daisy cotton thread.
It still had it's Woolworth tags...
Love the texture...
More lovely creamy cotton thread...this time on wooden spools.
Another sweet bowl from England
which matches several larger bowls at home.
(Also found in Vicki's booth...The Rose Arbor).
Sigh...two box fulls of lace.
...more threads in blue tissue paper.
And then there was this...
A porcelain paint palette...
Made in Germany for F.R.& Co. in New York
...several white lacy hankies
Some serviceable white cups and saucers for the lake house kitchen.
Homer Laughlin...Best China
It was $5 day.
Every single thing (or lot) in this booth was $5 on Wednesday.
On Thursday it was all to be $4...
then on Friday $3...etc.
So...I got 8 cups and 8 saucers for $5!
Now, if only I could get Mr. Flea to drink from these instead of his favorite mug!
A metal crown...
Perhaps I can wear it out kayaking or in the garden. :)
...an assortment of odds and ends.
Anyway...that is all I will show you for today.
More to come soon!
Obviously, I can't reveal the treasures
that I found for the three winners of the Give Back...
...we must keep the surprise!
