Weekend Finds: One Dollar or Less

It seems I have been finding very little lately, although I still found plenty to photograph when it came time to start my post. My finds, as usual, are all from garage sales.

First up is a cute six piece set of “made in Japan” ceramic angel candle huggers. They had a price tag of $1.00 for the set! The turquoise Pyrex casserole came from the same sale and was priced at $0.50, so I added it to my collection. It’s a 1957 promotional piece called “Lace Medallion”.

I did have some Roseville luck, although most would have probably left it behind. It was a new to me pattern with lots of chips, but once I picked it up I wasn’t putting it back down. I was happy to save it and it only cost $1.00. It does looks great mixed in with my other Roseville pottery pieces.

Another $1.00 find, but in much better condition, is this 100% wool Faribo throw.  The blanket was made by the Faribault Woolen Mill Co. in Faribault, Minnesota. The company has been in business since 1865. Don’t you just love the colors? I was told it was bought by the sellers parents while they were on a vacation and was found after having been stored in a hope chest for years.

My last find is an old cigar box I picked up for $0.50. I really liked the colors and it is in pretty good shape. I only own one other cigar box that was given to me by my grandparents and holds my collection of my great-grandma’s scissors. I’m sure I can come up with something to store inside this one.

This coming weekend I will be celebrating my husband’s and son’s birthdays, but I’m still hoping to squeeze in a couple of good sales!
