A couple of weeks ago, I went with my mom on a Birthday outing. And as you can imagine, as it sometimes goes, I found things for myself while on an outing for her! !! We had a great time, and she just laughed at me when I debated on whether or not to bring this adorable cookie jar home.
This was at a local shop that is run by a local antique dealer named "Junker Val" She used to have a place at the old Stockyards barns at their flea market. I had no idea she was still not at the same place, but she has left the barns flea market. She has her own shop and it is filled with all kinds of goodies!
I had on one of my Doxie sweatshirts and she noticed that right away and asked me if I wanted to see her Dachshund cookie jar. I said NO....right away, but she was not having any of that! And of course, when I saw it, I fell in love with it! It is old as can be and I have NEVER seen another one like it. I told her I'd think about it and we left her shop and walked next door to look in a clothing boutique.
As we got in the car to leave the shopping area, I decided to go back in and get it! She laughed out loud when I walked back in the doors....I am sure she thought, Yep, there is a sucker born every minute!! Oh, and did you notice, I did not mention what I paid for this?? Simply because it was not one of my bargain finds.
There are no labels that I can find at all, but you can see the bottom has lots of crazing. I asked her if she had found it local and she could not remember. She said it might have been in some things that someone brought in to sell to her one weekend. Either way, it has a good home with me! My friend said I should sell it online, that it might fetch a pretty penny!
I said, no thanks....it looks rather pretty on my kitchen counter!! What about you?? Have you ever seen a cookie jar like this one??
Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday!!
