Happy PINK Saturday everyone!
While I was on vacation last week, I did a little antiquing. Normally I only do a little window shopping because the prices in most antique stores are not in my budget. Last week however; I scored several bargains! First, my girls and I were killing a little time so we went to one of those really big antique malls. You know, the kind that is in a former grocery store with lots of booths operated by different vendors. This place was so big we were there for an hour and a half and I only made it through 2 isles. I really wish I had taken my camera because at the front of the store were rows and rows of six foot tall glass cases filled with beautiful glassware all arranged by color. It was like looking at a crystal rainbow. Most of the pieces in these cases were depression glass, Fenton glass, Cambridge glass and pieces from similar manufacturers. And the Fiesta Ware, oh my! Every color imaginable in every type of plate, bowl, cup and serving piece you could possibly want. I have been wanting to collect a few pieces of Fiesta Ware so I thought I would see what was available, unfortunately, everything was way out of my budget. Then I spied these, a mismatched pair of salt and pepper shakers!
The price was right, $7.95 each, I think they were so cheap because they were mismatched, one yellow and one PINK and also because they were missing the stopper in the bottom. The best part, when I got to the register, they took another 20% off. I already had this little wire basket and they fit in it perfectly.
A few days later my sister and I were driving around Amish country and spied this big ole barn with a hand painted sign out front that read "Antiques and Old Things". We decided to check it out. They had some wonderful old furniture at really great prices. Oh how I wished I had an SUV to bring home just one of those pieces. Instead I found these two little matching PINK glass dishes.
I "think" they are Fenton glass and I have no idea what their intended use was but I'm going to put a tea light or maybe a votive candle in them. The best part, they were only $5.00 each!
On the last day of our vacation we stopped in this wonderful little antique store. There was so much to look at and the prices were great. If you read my post earlier in the week, I found three beautiful vintage childrens' books in the same store. My biggest bargain from this store was this little miniature planter. I love this little Pink squirrel, it is so precious.
I can't imagine what you could possibly plant in it because it is only about four inches tall but at $5.00, I thought it was a steal. Here's a side view, isn't it sweet?
That's it for this PINK Saturday! Please stop by How Sweet the Sound and say HI to our host Miss Beverly!
Have a great weekend! xxoo Nan
