I'll bet you've been waiting with bated breath to see what else I brought home from the rummage sale last week, yes? Well no, not really. But you are too polite to say so, and I thank you. Actually, I always feel like I'm writing a report for school entitled What I Bought at the Rummage Sale. But without the butterflies in my stomach from having to deliver it in front of the whole class. :)
First up is this pair of white urns for $1.50. each. I think I need to find a couple of myrtle topiaries to go inside. They will look nice on the deck for the summer. And I'm a sucker for anything urn-shaped.
Next, I found this gigantic stoneware compote for $3.50. I've been collecting white and cream dishes for the kitchen, so this big guy fit the bill nicely. It's marked Red Cliff Ironstone on the reverse. A little research tells me that the pattern is called Heritage, and it was probably made sometime from 1950-1980. Tureens in the same pattern are going for $65 -- $95 on ebay, so I guess it was a good deal.
You know I can't leave the rummage sale without at least one piece of milk glass. This footed candy bowl, in the English Hobnail pattern by Westmoreland, was $3. A collector's encyclopedia published in 1995 values it at $25 - $30.
The two hobnail pieces above were most likely made by Fenton. I think I paid $1.50 each. Haven't found a current price for them yet, but it's probably not more than $10 or $12 each.
And finally, I think this little vase is an antique reproduction made by the John E. Kemple Glass Works, currently selling for around $20. I paid $1. for it.
So that is what I bought at the rummage sale. :)
Our white azaleas are bursting with blooms this week, and I thought they looked really pretty in my new little vase. The green and white tole tray was a gift from Cindy, at My Romantic Home. The blue and white tufted seat is a new HomeGoods purchase to spruce up our family room. If I get my act together (highly unlikely) I will be showing you some changes there in the following weeks.
So, can you tell that I'm currently in love with white? ;)
