Fruity Vintage Finds and a Handful of Characters!

Thought I'd post some of the little fun stuff we found recently.  Trying to hold back on the kitsch, but some things are just too cute.  I'm still working on thinning out some of my stuff!



But wait!
I have to interrupt this draft post to update and include my most recent find! Just got home an hour ago, wasn't feeling so hot today, but we went to a few thrifts.  Last one, I'm standing in the aisle looking at pots and hubby says "now, contain yourself". And oh my gosh--from behind his back he brings out a pair of mermaids!!!!  This is the first time we have ever run into any and save a small chip, they are perfect.  The fish have a pearlescent finish, they are marked Japan and appear to be either Norcrest or Lefton.  They came from one of our thrifts that prices things reasonably, so that made it even sweeter! I can't wait to get these hung up!  I'm so excited! 




Picked up this sweet Hazel Atlas apples bowl.  It is so tall and narrow!  I don't need any more mugs, but this flower footed Fire King mug is the first I've ever seen.  A slice of lime Wondermold trivet.


What luck!  I found the whole set of these made in Japan vintage ceramic towel holders.  They are flawless  and the price was nice!



 I couldn't pass up this Fire King Gay Fad loaf pan,--so pretty!

Here's one of the vintage Easter pieces hubby found, love it! It's about 4" tall.

These little devil salt/pepper shakers still have their Japan paper labels and their chenille stem tails.  Unfortunately their pitch forks are missing.  Guess making a couple of those will go on my to do list!

These vintage Enesco shakers are too funny, I picked them up for a friend.  I remember my mom's friend at the age of 45, getting pregnant.   They had 3 children already, the oldest was 20--they were "done".  Well, mom said she wasn't too happy when she got pregnant, imagine how she felt to find out she was going to have twins!

I'm linking up with Sir-Thrift-A-Lot at thriftasaurus.  I have to hop over there and see all the neat stuff people are posting this week! Click the link and you can see what's happenin' too!!

  1. Great finds! I am loving the vintage Easter items you keep posting. My thrifts have been dry in that area, but I did get some old Easter postcards (stamped 1916) last week that I have displayed around the house.

    1. Jacquelyn--Easter vintage hasn't been easy to find! A lot of that resin stuff out there that no one seems to want. A piece here and there is enough though. Old Easter postcards are sweet! My MIL has some.

  6. Them devil shakers, I need a set! I was going to start a devil themed collection, but it has yet to begin. Things are a disaster around here! Mermaids are adorable! Those other shakers are cute, too.

    1. The girls went up in the main bathroom Maureen. I had to use some jeweler's wire to hang them. I was so worried something was going to happen before I got them up!!!!
