Forgot that my community was having a giant yard sale early this morning. I didn't get there until 11:30. Looked as if half the families were rained out.
First thing, I picked up was an owl mug from a 70 year old woman who informed me that she had just sold her entire owl collection, damn! She said they went like hotcakes. While I don't collect owls I am drawn to them and they sell quite well. SOLD
Picked up more Pyrex "Spring Blossom Green" bowl, it's not in perfect condition. Square planter by "Don-Jay Ceramics" "Made in California, 401" with a maroon glaze and white drip around the edges. Company was founded by Philip Stein after WW2 can't find anymore info.
Porcelain "Melitta 100" coffee filter. Made in Germany, This a smaller version probably for the small coffee pot but could fit over a coffee cup. It's been listed as from the 60's but don't know if that's true. Funny to find a few days after the entire Melitta set.

Plus a cobalt blue star shaped votive by Iittala. Just noticed a crack in it. And a cobalt blue glass bird that the owner said was from Finland SOLD.
Also bought a 1934-50 huge mint condition turquoise "El Patio" 17" platter by Gladding McBean of California for $1 but then broke it while paying for it. Can't believe it lasted over 60 years undamaged till it met me! Earlier this week, I broke the door off my 1930's "Sellers" cabinet with my butt, don't ask. I'm a huge klutz and break something at least once a week.
And lastly, a glass Pyrex mushroom jar. I broke my one a few months back. SOLD
Oh, and I missed a large set of those "Harvest" orange & yellow Tupperware sets from the 70's by a few seconds. Not bad for going to the tail end of the sale. Next sale is in the fall, I should really try to get there at 8am.
