About a week ago, I went to a couple of estate sales. I'm always on the lookout for milk glass and other (affordable) treasures. Mark stayed in the car so that Will and Ben could watch cartoons while I searched for treasures. I was very successful in a very short time.
This first pedestal dish is my favorite find. The lady who runs the estate sale said that she had never seen this pattern. (Dear aunt, I believe it was the interesting 80 yr old Pat!) I was thrilled to have her compliment my purchase! This lady has run numerous estate sales and for her to say that was just the validation I needed. She also told me how to spot very old milk glass--hold it up to the light and you will see all sorts of colors appear in the rim. That will let you know it's really old.
It was only $4.
I purchased the bowls at another estate sale. I thought they might be useful when decorating for a party.
This piece had an interesting shape. I don't have very many things that are square. Again, I thought it might be useful to decorate for a party.
I like the scalloped edges.
The bowls and the square dish were $8.
All in all, I was happy with my finds and thought it was a huge success. Mark was happy that it only took about 15 minutes at each stop and thought that was a huge success! We each define success in different terms, ha!
