Fall Finds Today & More

jeannespinesNovember 2, 2010

Had a wonderful day trip shopping about 50 miles from home with good friends ...lookin' for "after Halloween" bargains. At my first TS I spent $5 (only 15 miles from home)...one of my fav places...today glassware was l/2 off! Shelves were pretty empty but I found some treasures:

4 etched glasses for 25 cts each, plus this smaller size soup tureen (Japan stamped on back) & S&P bunny shakers (no markings)...can see etching in glasses better in this pic:

Next place got some cute heavy pumpkins on sale ...marked half price & then another 25% off ...they are metal-like...the ceramic bird I pd full price...I love using birds in decor:

At a pharmacy/gift store, Christmas boxes were being unpacked for open house this coming weekend...I saw this bronze/coppery mercury glass candle holder & thought it would be lovely with my mercury glass birds I've posted this Fall...price $6.25:

And last, but not least, my fav, fav buy of the day...this pottery plate & bowl found at another TS for $4 ea ...had labels still glued on the bottoms. They called to me because of my pottery snowmen I have out all winter:

And, stacked:

Here's the pottery snowmen from last winter that I showed in a t'scape. I think the new pcs are perfect! No markings except microwave/dishwasher safe:

It was a good day! Hope to get Halloween packed away later this wk & add some more Tksgvg/Fall! TFLookin'! Jeanne S.

Jeanne, the pottery plate and bowl just had your name all over them. What a wonderful find for you, and perfect with your Snowmen. You got a lot of neat stuff, tho my favorite are the heavy pumpkins and bird. Like you, birds in decor are something I really like all year long.

hugs, Karen

Jeanne, you found some great things. I thought your bunnies would of been something Karen would of picked up on first.LOL Totally agree with what Karen said about your new plate and bowl. The bowl must have a pedestal on the bottom the way it sits up on the plate.

Makes me want to skip work tomorrow and go see what's on sale.LOL This is not going to happen as we are suppose to be getting in windows and door for the front of new office.

How fun for you! Those dishes sure do look like your snowmen, I'm sure you will find a way to add them into your vignette this year. Neat pumpkins and birds too, and your white tureen and bunnies--sure can't go wrong with those! You were in the right place at the right time to snatch up that mercury glass piece--those usually sell fast. Know you will have lots of fun using all your new goodies. ;o)
