The Finds Started Popping Up

Last week I found my usual mixture of random goodies. It all starting at a Thursday sale where I found a group of mushrooms. I have not a clue what I will do with all these but it’s a nice sized crop of mushroom candles and tiny candle holders.

And this large galvanized metal water cooler.

I also found an arm full of smalls pictured below. The story I was told of this black and dark orange vase was that it was brought back from a Europe vacation in the early 1970s. They picked up fresh flowers at different stops of their trip so they needed a vase for them to travel in. I’m so glad they used this amazing piece of pottery. The owl planter was a $2.00 find and still has the floral shop sticker on the back of it. Could you imagine having flowers or a plant show up in this as a gift for you? So cool! It does have a plastic ladybug that my kids popped right off. Thanks boys! Last is this beautiful lady head. I don’t know much about it but it is labeled Marwal and dates from the 1960’s.

My most exciting find from Friday was opening up this box priced at $1.00. The sale had been open for hours by the time I found this. Would you have opened it? The inside holds an antique treasure.

Pretty amazing, right? Austin and his mom helped me date it to the mid-1800’s!

I didn’t head out to sales on Saturday until around ten o’clock in the morning and didn’t find much, but this little table came home with me for $3.oo.

I hit some really fun sales and I guess it goes to show that the early bird doesn’t always get the worm!
