Saturday's finds

I finally went to an estate sale! My first time going!
It was awesome! I met some very nice people and saw a lot of interesting things.
I did manage to find some neat treasures too!

I bought these in an estate sale in CT.
Awesome ladies that were holding the estate sale I am assuming for the family.
I found these AWESOME Fire King "Lustre peach" soup bowls!
My mouth dropped when I saw them because I have been looking for these for some time now.
I do see them on eBay but they are really over priced.
I bought these 6 soup bowls for $10!

I bought these beautiful fruit canisters! A set of 3 for $8!
I love fruit decals on anything vintage so these caught my eye right away and they go lovely in my red and white kitchen!

Here they are on my bakers right in my kitchen!!

I found this butterscotch Bakelite cake cutter?
I was told by the owner it was a cheese cutter?
Does anyone know what this might be?

I bought it for $2.00

I bought this awesome hand painted strawberry book holder for $1.00!
I love it, the colors are vibrant and it looks great holding one of my vintage cookbooks!

I bought this Griswold Patty molds in it's original box for $1.00.
I have NEVER seen anything like this before and thought it was so unique!
Does anyone know how you use it???

I just love vintage cookbooks! I have a ton and I just love looking through them and cooking with them! They are so fun.
I bought this Pillsbury 1,000 recipe cookbook for $3.00
It is from 1959

I just love vintage contact paper! I need to do my top draws in my kitchen badly and saw this and would go perfect in my kitchen! It was only 0.25 cents!

I am LOVING vintage aprons right now! I have about 4 or 5 already and found this one on Saturday!
It was $5.00 and I love all the colors to it! 

I love old Christmas wrapping paper. It was complete and was only $1.00.

I got this at the last minute at a church tag sale! I asked them if they were selling it and the women said well not really, do you really like it? And I said yes I do! So she said would you pay $1.00? I said yes deff!

So I bought this Mele Pink Jewelry box for $1.00!

I got this beautiful vintage Christmas tablecloth at one of the ES.
It was only $2.00! and nothing is wrong with it!!!

I bought this chip and dip set for $4.00.
And yes it has fruit decals on it, isn't it cute??!!

I am wondering who makes this.

I bought this for my husband, I have never seen this before and it is very unique.
It is a auto whis kit. and seems like it is it for the car. It has a meter feeder to keep your coins or keys in, a scraper in the back for your windows and a brush for the car.
Got it for $1.00

I bought this beautiful coral dress for $5! I couldn't believe it was only $5!
Maybe I will wear this to the opera with my vintage stole! =)

I got this shirt for $1.00. It is super cute, seems to be from the 60's.

and this beautiful over coat with matching dress for $5!!!

I just love vintage clothing!

And you might be saying where is the Pyrex???!!!
Sadly I found none at the estate sales!!! I was looking and looking and all I saw was the clear Pyrex no colors! =(

Maybe this Saturday I will find some Pyrex!


  1. I want the book stand! That's so neat!!

    1. Isn't it! I think it is great! I looove fruit decor so this is awesome1

  2. What great finds you had! The cutter is for angel food cake – it usually works best after the 1st slice is out - you can then "tear" the next piece with this. I am also in love with the book holder – it’s so cute! I guess I’ll have to fight you and Jill for it! ;)’
    The Griswold things are to make a dessert where you dip the metal piece in batter and fry it until the batter detaches, then sprinkle with icing sugar. We used to call these “rosettes” – haven’t had them in a long time, but they were a treat.

    1. Thank you =)
      I thought it was for some sort of cake! The women insisted that it was for a block of cheese! I knew it wasn't but she was an older lady and I just let her think that was it!!!
      Everyone loves the book holder!!! It is super cute in my kitchen...

      The Griswold molds are cute! I have not used them yet but will try around Christmas =)

      I am glad you loved my finds!!

    2. Hmm - I thought I had written this yesterday - anyway, here it goes (again).
      Don't know if you follow the Lark & Lola blog, but I thought of you when I saw this post:
      Don't know if you've found a recipe for Rosettes yet, but you could give this one a try.

    3. Thank you sooo much! I do not know of that blog but I will look up the link you sent me! I can't wait to start baking rosettes!

    4. OMG! I lovee how they show you what to do! GREAT! Thank you again! =)
