This week, I want to share some of my Goodwill finds from a few weeks ago, I tell ya' that day, I hit the mother lode.
I found this set of 3 atomic mid century bowls. They are small, maybe for custard or a small bowl of soup. They are wonderful vintage bowls and depict that time period fabulously.
I have learned from a little research, this type of china,or anything with an atomic feel has burst and become very popular again. I just love these bowls. But do you think I'd want to sell them....well, not really. I really like them and think they are very unusual.
You know, I don't know why I have a knack for finding 3 or 5 of things...very seldom will I find 4 or 6 of anything. I got these for $1.50 for all three, and was really happy. The bottoms of these are marked,
Syracuse China, 6-1, USA
Don't you just think they scream mid century America?
On this same day, I found this lovely cup and saucer. This is also marked Syracuse China, USA. Look at the lovely details on the saucer.
This looks like it was never used. I am thinking it is part of restaurant ware, as it has the fell of that type of china. I think it is rather charming...and as usual, only one was found. Not bad for .75 cents.
Alas, my luck must have ran out that day, as this is about all I have found worthy of mentioning in a few weeks. This week, I did find a couple of things, and an amazing find (I think) at a Thrift Store for .25 cents. I will save these for another day.....
I have some really great things to share next week, Steve and Jeff have been in Colorado this week, and well...when I say I have missed some rather RARE occurrences, well, that is an understatement. I am hoping between the two of them, they have some pictures of the events that unfolded this week high in the Rockies and I will be able to share these unique experiences with you....told by the two of them.
Have a great Vintage Thingie Thursday everyone, and a blessed rest of your week.
