More Finds!

This seller says this is a children's bracelet but it fits me! Pretty scarab bracelet:
This is one I'm pretty darn proud of, an owl rhinestone stick pin!
Funky green plastic earrings and pin.  Would you sell these as a set or individually?
I've been seeing these a lot lately and am getting quite the set of them, tin litho pins:
Celluloid Scottie dog pin
Rhinestone bracelet:
Rhinestone necklace:
Great poodle pin!  Moving hair, now you see it's eyes
and now you don't!
Funky plastic amber earrings:
Look how the dots are just suspended in the plastic!
Pretty cool, huh?

Even More Finds!

People seem to crave vintage Tupperware in the old colors!  These are mugs lids or coasters.
I have seen a lot of these dishes, mostly out of the boxes.  This person has a funny sense of humor!
Tupperware canister in green with mushrooms!
Brown Tupperware canister pieces:
This piece is all mine.  I just love EAPG and won't give this one up, at least, not yet!
A wonderful wallpaper border that I got for .35 cents!  Now I have to find something to do with it.  I'm thinking about large tags with the hearts and sew some buttons on them.  Any ideas?
Now, this is someone so proud of their bowling trophies!  Even had a rack made for his pins!
If you scroll down, you'll see one of these in black that is missing pieces.  I can't believe I found another one but in the butterscotch color!  This is the hardest of the colors to find!
I am a bit out of my comfort zone with this one.  I spent more on it than I normally would consider but it just seemed like the thing to do!
Maybe it's the silliness of how they look when they are all hanging on the rack.
Yep, it's a chicken spice rack.
I love this set of buttons with matching slide.  It's a shame I can't get a photo showing the wonderful colors!
Two costume jewelry pins:
One more day to come!

More Finds!

I just liked the old look of these knitting needles!  I hope someone can use them or display them.
I've come across smaller sizes of these but this is the first time I found the larger ones.  I got 5 pairs but 2 pairs were mismatched but my hubby took them to use in his workshop!  He loves these bookends.
Another TV Lamp, bulb not included.  Luckily, the shop had a bulb to put in it and try it out before I bought it!
This next one made me stop and think.  Yes, it's missing pieces, but I've sold the center bowls by themselves before so why not, it was only marked $3.00.  Glad I decided to take it because I got to the register and found out it was on sale for $1.50!
Another rack, these older ones seem to be in demand.  It's a plate rack but again, you can use it for some many things!
A mismatched set of children's dishes and this set has pots to it!  It's just too cute.
Found this cute little sewing caddy!
Wooden toothpick holder:
A plastic flower fashioner in box:
A piece of restaurantware, I have a matching bouillon bowl that will go nicely with this! 
And the best part of it, after the .60 cent price is, it's by Homer Laughlin!
I thought this was different!  A coaster set with a metal holder.
That's it for day two of my finds.  Stay tuned, I have at least two more days worth!

It's been a long time since I've posted any finds, now I'm so far behind, it will take days to catch up!  So, here is part one.

I found these on eBay!
I saw these at an antique shop and passed on them because they were priced too high.  I never saw this shape before, so I really wanted them!  Next day, I went to another antique shop and found the same set for over half the price I saw the day before!  Some times it pays to walk away!  They are three panels of outdoor themes.
I loved the look of this one.  Check out her nose!  LOL!  Oops!
Another one I walked away from but wanted badly, my hubby and I have a fascination with eagles, so I really wanted this one, again, priced way too high.  Got it on sale!
I've been looking at the cocker spaniel PBN's for awhile now, finally scored!
Two more:
Something else I've wanted and finally got!  A metal magazine holder.  Best part of this one is, I found it at the Goodwill Store so it was priced right but I was given a Goodwill Gift Card for Christmas, so I got this for free!  :o)
I started cleaning it with Nevr-Dull and it's coming out nicer than I expected!  I always have to laugh at these, people would miss sections and some people won't touch those but I love them when they aren't quite right.
Here's a trash can I found!
And another desk caddy:
Someday, I hope to have an office filled with paint by number items!  I'm all set with the trashcan, desk caddy and I think I can use the magazine rack for rolls of bubble wrap.  sigh, someday maybe.

Along with the free magazine rack, I couldn't resist this.
What can I say?  I'm a sucker for cute faces!

Was out antique shopping today and came across a few items I couldn't resist!

First, I found this paint by number:
It's dated 1964 in the corner.

Next, I found two more paint by numbers!

The one on the right cracks me up, there's a dead fish next to the vase.  

Now, I saw this the last time I was at this shop and thought about it since.  I made up my mind, if it was still there, it's mine.  

It's a TV lamp!  So kitsch, isn't it?  Wouldn't you have wanted it too?
Just look, you can put things in it!  LOLOL!
Seriously though, fill it with vintage fake flowers, colored sand, seashells or winkles and you are all set!
