Last week I was able to get out one day and head to a local
thrift store. I had not been there in months. I did not find a thing,
however the shop next door I did!
What do you think about my $2.99 puppy?
He has the sweetest little face
I think he is a little terrier, but when I saw him it reminded me of a story.
In the 1920's my Great Grandparents send off to Ohio for an
Airedale, he was sent on the train to Illinois.
I find that fascinating for that time.
Next things was marked 1/2 off
A silver crumb catcher
The lady at the store and I tried to decide if the initial was
a "W" or a "M"
what do you think?
I am going to go with W since it is going to 1515
and that is my maiden name initial
My cousins say they remember my Grandmother having
one and using it after dinner to remove the crumbs
from her linen tablecloth. My Aunt bought me one
years ago when I got married.
Both pieces before I cleaned them up
They cleaned up a little, but for $7 I will enjoy it.
It is marked on the back.
Now here is something I did not buy
This pottery lamp, probably from the 1940's and it, including the shade
is in perfect shape
In my 20 years of collecting McCoy, USA pottery I have never seen
one like it....but see that ugly price tag? $75!!!
Unless I go back and find it 1/2 price it will be staying there!
