I've decided to do a series of small giveaways. I want to share some of my thrift finds with all of you! The first one will be for this pressed glass relish dish and these two pristine hand towels. The towels are quite lovely. One is embroidered and the other woven with fringe on the border. You know the drill, just sign on to follow if you don't already. Then leave a comment on this post. I will pick the winner on Monday morning.
Teddy and I are rather sad that the holidays are over.
So, we are already dreaming of returning to the beach in Rockport next fall.
She was telling me how much she misses rolling in the sand.
Thank heavens the sand is well packed on that beach.
Teddy wants to roll some more.
So now we will just count down to Halloween and get through the rest of the year.
After all, we are only 282 days away!
Here are the rest of yesterday's thrift grabs. I collect these vintage refrigerator containers. They are usually a bit expensive but this one was only 4.50.
Two little pressed glass bowls which will be nice to use for a Valentine's gift when filled with something yummy. Two for 1.00.
A nice milk glass plate. 50 cents
Three green depression glass bowls with matching plates. 99 cents each.
Another nice pressed glass candy dish. 1.29 cents.
A very heavy sectional pressed glass dish. Other than the obvious relishes, what else were these used for? 2.00
A sectional dish with a round area in the middle to hold a bowl. 2.00
A sectional relish and an open relish. 1.95 each.
A very pretty (Vaseline glass?) plate. 3.50
I love finding these pieces. I like to bake bread loaves in glass and this one has a top. I guess it could also be used for meatloaf.
This is marked with a W. Westinghouse used to be a big manufacturer of kitchen appliances and I guess they had their own line of cookware. 2.00
Some of these pieces will be showing up on future giveaways. I couldn't pass this up for 1.50, but I just don't have anywhere to put all of this glass. I guess I will be thrift shopping for you!
A really nice pressed glass candy dish. 2.50
And yet another juicer for 2.50. I am going to be including this in the retro basket I will be giving away over on Mrs. B's in February. I will be putting the button up on my sidebar as soon as it is ready.
My daughter took this with her this morning. A pink depression glass sectional piece. She is going to use it on her dresser to hold jewelry. What was a dish like this used for? 4.00
A heavy oval pressed glass platter. 1.95
This is marked on the handle as an Acme grater. I am not sure what you would grate with this. Breadcrumbs? I am going to use it as a strainer.
