Found tons of stuff at thrift this week!

Blue enameled Swissmar "Lugano" fondue pot. Think, I left the bottom part at the thrift store. Retails at $80 SOLD.

Children's book "The Runaway Giant" by Adelaide Holl, copyright 1967.

Thrift store had some lady's entire doll collection. I only picked the wooden ones except for the plastic British Palace guard & Roma guard. She had lots of German dolls too. Signed Egypt, man and lady (broken top) figures.

Turned jointed 1960's "JOLI" Amish dolls (she even has hand sewn underwear!) in mint condition. Pinocchio and girl in pink jumper with red shoes. Foil label "Made in Poland. They remind me of TinTin. These dolls were produced from 1930-1970. There are thousands of versions & costumes. I think, the Red Riding Hoods & the 40-50's girl dresses are the cutest. For Sale

Small 4" wood shaved, acorn cap figure, prob. Scan. or German. Don't know anything about it? "Sweet & Low" mini diet scale. Set of eight "Savoy" Noritake China, Japan tea cups. I think, they might be to small for the Rosenthal saucers. "Gladmark of Burbank, California" wood tray. Circa 1956-70. Plus, Walt Disney World black metal tray circa 1971.

Pair of "Lady Bug" mugs. 1960-70's. SOLD. One foil label: Viking Import, Japan. Other label: Knobler, Japan. Alfred Knobler founder of Pilgram glass. "Alfred E Knobler & Co Inc.
