1. Goodwill Outlet:
I'm affectionately calling this vase "Gator" glass. Look at this cool texture:
At first glance it reminded me of the "rumple" vases (from this post) I see often but I did a double take when I realized it looked more reptilian. The bottom is stamped, "Copyright by Sam Berger 1972."
Next up, an egg cup and toothpick holder:
The egg cup is marked ARC France and Dan found the little *pink* Imperial Glass urn for me :)
I dug this syrup pitcher out of a bin:
I haven't identified it yet but the scalloped rim, inverted opposing diamond pattern, and lovely shaped handle (oh, and the 59c/lb price tag) meant it was coming home with me.
2. The Family Thrift Store:
I love the beaded edge on this relish dish. It looks so much like candlewick! It was $1.98 Here's the pattern inside:
Last week, I found a pie bird, and this week, I found a pie plate:
A 1941-1956 Fire-King Sapphire Blue 9" pie plate! I found a matching 1.5 qt casserole dish last month (here) at the GW outlet. The pie plate was really dirty and I wasn't sure what I would find underneath all of the crud, but for $1, I decided to take a chance. Look at the beautiful pattern:
The next three thrift stores - SALVO, Retail Goodwill on Midlothian Turnpike, and RAL (Richmond Animal League) Thrift - yielded no finds. The next stop, #6, was The Thrifty Quaker where I found this little treat for 50 cents:
This adorable porcelain sleeping kitten was made in the 1950s-1960s in England by the Hungarian artist Joseph Szeiler. It's signed and oh.so.darling!
The next stop was Diversity Thrift (#7). As luck would have it, all glassware was 50% off!
I know, more iridescent glasses. Did I mention they were 50% off? And four of them are purple! $5 for all.
The next two stops, 8 and 9, were both SALVOs but the one wasn't completely set up yet (they had just moved into their new building) and I found this at #9:
This is an Indiana Glass Recollection Madrid pattern footed clear hurricane. It was 60 cents - crazy! I just found the Madrid tumblers 2 weeks ago (here) in pink.
The last two stops were both retail Goodwill stores - I hit the jackpot!
There are two patterns going on here but they are the same color and it's the color that I HAD to have :) The luncheon plates are (1957) Indiana Glass Park Avenue pattern (originally a Colony Glass Company mold). The goblets and sherbets are also by Indiana Glass in their Nouveau pattern (1968). The color is referred to as blue but it's really more on the teal side - it's just beautiful!
The whole set was $15.
I thought this was so cool:
Finally, this gorgeous bowl for $3:
I love the painted koi:
I can't wait to see what you found! I'm linking up!
