Weekend Finds: Rain or Shine

Last week we had lots of rain in central Iowa and luckily it didn’t shy people away from having garage sales. I was one of the crazy ones at a few of the sales getting rained on, but why not? These first finds came from a Thursday late morning sale. Walking up to the sale I recognized these pieces as carnival glass right away and when I saw the price I grabbed it up. At $1.00 to $2.00 each I couldn’t believe it. I ended up paying $8.00 for this group of Imperial Carnival glass.

All of these pieces, except for the acorn topped candy container, are from a line of reissued carnival glass dating from between 1965-1972. They are all marked with an “IG” in the glass. This wonderful color is called Peacock or Smoke.

My next finds were from a few stops on Friday afternoon.

My final finds came from a Friday evening tag sale where I found this way cool vintage tinsel tree. I don’t know much about it but it really looks homemade to me. Anyone know anything about this? The small bottle brush tree is covered in pine-cones and fruit. It also came home with me.
