This week, I have found some amazing finds at Goodwill. It was not like I needed any of the treasures I came across, but most definitely I needed them just because. Please tell me you get that!!
I swear it was almost like someone cleaned a little ole' ladies house out, boxed it all up and sent it to Goodwill. Once at Goodwill, the treasures were waiting patiently for someone to love them again. Well...there was just no problem with that...go figure.
Consequently, I was there two days this week loading my cart up. Literally. Once again, time constraints this week has caused me to do a quick post, and I will have to save the real goodies for another week. *sigh*
I don't usually buy glasses, but when I saw these two juice glasses, I snatched them off the counter. They do not have a scratch on them. I don't collect anything Snoopy, but he sure is cute and so are the glasses.
Best part, is the date.....1958. They are in excellent condition, just like they had been sitting in grandma's cabinet and never used. I may not use them either, I would hate to break one or scratch it up considering its age. I paid $1.75 for the pair of these juice glasses.
Look at this little gem. I remember as a kid,in the 60's, these cups being at McDonald's. My mom has always been a coffee drinker, and I am sure she used a cup like this long ago before everything turned to paper and cardboard. I have not seen or thought about them in years. It is in excellent condition, no scratches or dings at all. This was tagged at .65 cents.
Here is the bottom of the cup, look....it is a Fire King. Love this. I did find some of these on EBAY and the price ranged from low to extremely expensive. So who really knows what it is worth, I just like it.
I am not sure what exactly this is. I am pretty sure it is made out of milk glass. It is a glass tray of some kind, but I don't really think it was used for cooking.
Here is the back side, it has a grain look in the glass and I really thought that was pink swirls in the glass, but after looking at the pictures on the computer, it may just need to be cleaned better.
I really love this little dish. I am going to put it in my sewing room and maybe hold sewing tools or something in it. I love the scalloped edge and the feel of the glass. There was no stamp or marking of any kind on this piece. I paid $1.00 for it.
And if you noticed the yummy tablecloth in my photos today, that is one of my favorites. I found this on eBay a few years back, and I just love the soft colors.
Thanks for stopping by today....if you have something you would like to share, please link in and join us!
Have a great week everyone!
