It is Thrift Share Monday and I am linking with my friends over at Southern Hospitality, Apron Thrift Girl and Coastal Charm for all the thrifty parties. Be sure and visit them for more treasure tales.
I didn’t find a ton of stuff this week, but what I did find was awesome.
I am a sucker for drippy brown glaze pottery.
Bonus that it is shaped like a little witch’s cauldron! I can fill it full of Halloween candy. It will look perfect among all my pumpkins and fall decorations.
I SUPER puffy heart Halloween.
Pretty sure I have mentioned that here before.
Not sure who is the maker of this little gem. It is stamped USA.
I paid $1.99 for it because there is the teeniest hairline crack in the side. I pointed it out to the cashier and she immediately said I could have it for that price. Since it was for me and not resale or a gift, I was happy to pay that! I love it.
Limoges T. & V.
Isn’t it positively gorgeous? It really isn’t my style, I like the more farmhouse kitschy looking antiques, but the color on this piece was amazing and I think it will look beautiful piled high with brownies.
The T & V mark stands for Tressemanes & Vogt. This bell mark dates it to 1907-1917.
This is also Limoges. It is breathtaking. I am going to pile it high with tiny treats at my next party. It is much smaller than the other plate, probably an 8 inch salad or (in my case) dessert plate.
It is marked Limoges Coronet.
When I tried to research it, I came back with nothing. I was like, ‘What the heck, maybe I have a super rare Antique Roadshow worthy prize!’.
I had my whole eyebrows arched, gasping, weeping Roadshow speech committed to memory before I figured out my little research problem.
I was googling ‘Limoges Corona‘.
Without the lime.
Looks like the Coronet piece dates from 1906-1920.
Two pieces of Limoges China just sitting in A thrift store in Henderson NV. All mine for $5 each.
Who gets rid of Limoges?
Well would ‘ya look at that.
David Cassidy’s Casserole dish!
What did I do to deserve this gem of a find?
Rueben Kincaid is probably dying of jealousy if he is reading this.
Well, it is actually vintage pyrex, the friendship pattern.
Ok. So David was a 70’s teen idol. But WAIT! What about his brother Shaun??
I mean David was ok, But holy heck.
Hot. Hot. Hot.
Like, Africa Hot.
He was my first celebrity crush. I used Elmer’s glue and stuck pictures of him all over my Holly Hobby bedroom walls.
And now, 30 some years later, I am lucky enough to have his brother’s casserole dish sitting in my fridge full of leftover Southwest Chicken Chili.
I’ll give you that recipe tomorrow.
Or maybe Wednesday!
Love you guys!
Enjoy Thrift Share Monday, and make it a thrifty week!
