I always seem to be attracted to lonely little ceramic animals when I am out and about at garage sales or thrift stores. I found this sweet little guy on one of my outings. I thought he was so cute.
Funny story about these.
I was at a neighborhood garage sale last weekend that is located close to me. I stopped at one sale and there were three ladies sitting at a table. I asked the lady how much for the shakers. She said, 25 cents. Trying to contain my excitement, I said I'd take them all but wanted to look around some more. I went to pay and the guy taking the money told me that they would be $4.00. I looked puzzled and informed him the lady said that they were 25 cents each. So he went and asked the lady again, and she said, Oh, $6.00. Heelloooooooo??????? To make a long story short, I did pay $2.00 for all of them, but I say.....pay attention!!!!
I have not even cleaned these up, they were just pulled out of the sack for a photo. The lids are tarnished which is what I wanted.....I have seen great little things made with shakers like this.....so I am going to see if I can do the same....turn them into something cute!
Have a great Vintage Thingie Thursday everyone!!! It is supposed to get cooler here tomorrow and I am sure hoping I am not having to haul plants in from outside!! We will see........
