This week, I want to continue with some purchases made at the same estate sale I talked about last week. Remember the pink milk glass? Well, here is another set of white milk glass. Both sets are unusual and I am very pleased with finding them.
The description on this set said "VERY RARE - I don't know why" HUH?? What kind of description is that?? Are they really wanting to sell this or what? Rare, but you don't know why? Well, it was priced to be a very rare piece. I passed on the first day.
But I kept thinking about the delicate red flowers on the white milk glass and decided to go back on the last day of the sale, when everything was discounted and see if the set was still there. I guess you can figure out that it was within price range on the last day!
Here is a really great set of red striped salt and pepper shakers from the same sale. These are glass with red plastic tops. I guess I could have cleaned them up a bit before they had their photo shoot, but you get the idea....they are a yummy red. And a bargain for $3.00.
Yes, I am glad I made the trip back over to the sale to see if this little set was still waiting for a new home. I still don't get the RARE part of the description nor the remark about I DON'T KNOW WHY part either.
Do you have any idea why someone would put a description like that on a piece they are trying to sell? Do any of you professionals out there really think this is a rare set? If so, why? All I know, I like the set and I am glad I brought it home with me.
Oh, and the pretty little white and red stripe kitchen towel in the photos. That is from the same sale. It was not white, however. It was a faded yellow and rusty red when I brought this home. And with a good soaking I told you about here, really makes this little towel look new again.
Have a great week everyone! There are lots of estate sales in my area this weekend, so you know I will busy in between working and sleeping......but it is just so much fun to explore other people's treasures, I don't mind sacrificing a little sleep!
