i decided to go to the thrift store after i got off work on Saturday. i am glad i went because i found some fun things!
this tin Handiware tray was my favorite find of the night! i like the worn patina, and the King and Queen of England are just adorable!
this aqua mid century modern Dansk Kobenstyle enameled dutch oven is just lovely! i did a little online research and it turns out these are quite the collectors items. i found one in a bit better condition than this listed for $125! the inside is an ivory color, which contrasts very nicely with the aqua.
this little china creamer makes me want to have a tea party (in fact, that's what the guy at the thrift store asked if i was doing)
i would definitely collect china if it was the same pattern as this bone china saucer. i just love those retro tiny gold stars!
another little saucer...
these cool canisters certainly belong on an old formica diner counter. i may store cereal in them...
i loved this little nativity, similar to one from my childhood that my parents still have.
buttons! i think it was my mom who once told me to always buy old buttons whenever i came across any at garage sales or thrift stores.
i was all excited about this Fire King peach lustre baking dish until i got it home and realized the inside is coated with some sort of paint that i am pretty sure is not original to the dish. anyone have any ideas? it also came with a burner stand that it sits on, if that helps.
and finally, i bought this little wooden base to pair with one of my glass domes, which turns out is too small for it. if anyone would have any use for it, i will gladly pass it along! a glass dome with a diameter of 5 1/2 inches would fit nicely in the groove. the total diameter of the base is just over 7 1/2 inches.
