Auction Highlights

Small auction on Saturday. There weren't a lot of really fantastic items, but enough to keep us interested. I spotted this orange carafe early on. The marking on the bottom is almost impossible to make out, but after some research, I found that it is a Metlox Pottery piece. I just loved the color and shape.

I can't pass up a deck of old playing cards if the graphics on them are good. Saturday, we scored an entire box full! These are all just fantastic. My favorites are the Mixies and Tree Spotter decks, but all of them have great graphics. The Go Fish deck is fish shaped with solid colored faces.

This pottery item came along with the Metlox piece, but I have no idea what it is or who made it. I love the black on orange design, and I'm always drawn to items with a fish motif.

These are the only markings on the piece. If anyone has any ideas, I would love to hear them!

We are currently working ourselves into a frenzy getting ready for the Red Barn Outdoor Market on Saturday. If you are in the south central Kansas area, you should really try to attend. I know there is a lot going on this weekend, but this event is so unique and fun!

Check out more cool stuff at the Thriftosaurus Link Up!!

More vintage goodness at Vintage Thingie Thursday!

Love the orange carafe. How big is it? Is it for coffee or something like maple syrup? Anyway, simply stunning (and perfect for the season too).

Now, that's something we don't have many of, playing cards, oh, no - better start looking....

LOVE the orange!
And YES ... I LOVE it when an auction or thrift shop find turns out to be a treasure. It keeps me looking, and looking, and looking!
Thanks for stopping by... Cass

Such fun finds! I found my Mixies and Old Maid cards from when I was a child, up at my parents house. I think I let out a squeal of delight! ;)

Happy VTT!

I love the little card deck sets. It looks like there's a giraffe one in the corner, and I love giraffes!
