Saturday Hunt

We have been having snow..snow..snow here in Illinois and I was anxious to get out and do some hunting. I was suppose to go to 1515 but my cousins dog slipped on the ice and hurt himself so they did not come over and snow was back in the forecast. So I got out and did some quick shopping.
Here is what I found

All of this for under $30

Really like this Daffodil tea is staying at home!
For $5 and made in England

10 Christmas plates for 10 to take to 1515 for those Christmas dinners so I don't have to drag mine back and forth every year. The red crotchet pot holders are for the red kitchen at 1515, they were a dollar a piece.

For my dresser at 1515, $2
Just love old graphics
In the bathroom at 1515 we have a vintage display of old toiletries

I think this maybe my favorite, 2 vases in a yellow and blueish green, staying in my kitchen on the Hoosier Cabinet.
USA Mark on the bottom

Hand painted letter holder. I have one just like it in beige that was my Grandma's. It is going to my bedroom at 1515 to hold old postcards,

A Glass towel rack. Going to the kitchen at 1515 to hold vintage towels.

I was happy to find this vintage silver tray. It is marked on the back but have not figured out the maker yet. The pink tag you see says "56 years old". Apparently someone at the store brought it in and it belonged to her parents. They were married she said, 56 yrs ago. I thought of Marty from A Stroll Thru Life when I found it because she always is finding such great silver piece.

 Walter, I hope your feeling better next week so your Mommy and Aunt Marty can come over and spend time at 1515

Have a great Sunday evening!

Wonderful finds! I love those two little vases. Now I know I've seen that USA marking before. Not sure where I saw it but I'm pretty sure it was manufactured in Ohio.

Those are some great finds! Hope poor Walter is feeling better.
I hope you get in here next weekend! It's snowing again!
Hugs- Tete

Hi Ann, I just saw all your goodies you have found and I like the pot holders. They are too cute and the right colors for a Valentines Day display. I had also the hat your grandmother had on in her photo. That was fun to see that. Have yourself a beautiful week................Julian

You truly found some neat things! Love the tea cup. I have a cup and saucer collection. What a sweet face that little dog has. Hoping he is much better soon.

So tell me... is 1515 your house or a store?

Oh That Tray is GORGEOUS AND if it's 56, THEN It was made the year I was born 1954!!! WOW, see I did have a draw to it...It would look fantastic standing up on end...It's like a shell and SO BEAUTIFUL! LOVE IT!!! and by the way, I have to get here MORE OFTEN, I see we have SO MUCH in COMMON!!!
