And not far away I spotted a Kaj Franck cat pitcher by Arabia and without damage (my mom found the exact same one for me several months ago). There are two glass floaters (the other is somewhere...) and a bright yellow Ingrid plastic pot that I shouldn't have purchased. I got an unholy amount of mugs but I'll put that in a separate post.
At GWill found this 1970s Midwinter Stonehenge "Sun" service. It was expensive maybe why it was still there. I'm on the fence with this purchase. It weighs a ton plates are SOLD.

Bea Macias for finding me these little Danish, Swedish and German Christmas ornaments. I have a serious collection now as it has been a good six months! Some of these are seconds or thirds for me but I love them all.

Pair of "Every Truth No Matter Who Speaks It Is Of The Holy Spirit" (isn't that just calling dibs on everything?) solid brass bookends. Made in Israel by Terra Sancta Guild in 1969 SOLD. And a nice large enamel racer stripe 70s desk lamp.

My friend Amy and I decided to go antiquing in PA. Lordy, girdy-hurdy heaven! All itsy-bitsies! Everything was the same and virtually no furniture. Oh and the prices were surprisingly high.
I only ended up getting three things. A Vera scarf of pink locks and keys, I believe this to be one of her very early designs. Trio of German wood angels and a Lamont linen tea towel.
Other then waking up at 5:30 am it was a fun day of looking at junk and eating a humongous pretzel. But you won't find me going back!
Here is some of the things we saw. I really wanted the Emsa Germany breakfast set cause I love plastic and orange. The Wiinblad poster was priced retail at $225. As you can tell modern was slim pickings.
Besides the Christmas booth (were I found the Vera scarf) the fox and lion were my favorite sightings. This woman sold vintage Lea Stein jewelry and contemporary French plastic jewelry. She said new designs were cut from old stock Galalith (similar to Bakelite.) Below are examples of French artist Marie-Christine Pavone's work.

My husband and I spent the weekend at his brothers wedding, my congrats to the little nit, but I did manage to squeeze in a few antique stores on the way home.
Picked up what I thought was a Fornasetti paperweight but was unsure because I could find no marks, probably why it was priced low. Mom tried to talk me out of this purchase but sure am glad I didn't listen to her! For some reason I like gold on porcelain? SOLD
The Porsgrund Norway fish trivet was the only cheaper item in a booth full of Rosenthal and Wiinblad, strange.
The Safeguard soap tin wasn't cheap but I couldn't resist the illustrations. Charlie Bodden says it's very much in the style of Mary Blair. If anyone knows the illustrator I would love more information. SOLD
The "An English pure silk scarf by Callahers of Macclesfield" 1940s to early 50s souvenir scarf was 25 cents! What in the world can you get for a quarter these days? The little Pyrex dish is for me it's one of the two patterns I collect - thought I had a lid at home but of course I don't. Ended up putting back a lot of enamelware - little sad that I did.

Yes, your seeing more tins - these are made in Japan and would look nifty in any red themed kitchen. Salton bread / roll warmer and vintage game cards. Sorry about the crappy photo - was in a rush.

Some cute little hankies these may have not be a good buy? A Mickey Mouse mug. A wood type puzzle for those text lovers SOLD. Three vikings a rare find for me. Black one is SOLD. The man and lady ones are SOLD. And a little Daum France signed glass bird SOLD.
Below are some Libby cork storage jars with original labels SOLD. Vintage jute from Carolina (remember the days when Carolina used to be a textile manufacturing hub? ) for macrame or those hanging macrame baskets (11 rolls total). And a purse for the sis.
