Holiday Haul!

Hi all!  Well, I am finally home (only to leave again tomorrow, so my shop is still in vacation mode) so I had a little time today to take some pictures!  I decided I would take a group shot rather than a bunch of single shots, because I am not listing these items for a while, until I make my own photo box like Rachael did recently!  I can't wait to make my pictures look more professional, they need it!

So I will start from the left and list all of what is in this picture:
-Set of 7 vintage brass drawer pulls
-2.5 Quart Spring Blossom Green Casserole w/Lid
-1 Pint Butterprint Serve and Store Casserole w/Lid
-Family of 3 Silver Plated Glass Llamas, Made in Peru
-Brass Bird Cage
-Brass Dolphin Door Knocker
-Snack Set
-1.5 Cup Spring Blossom Refrigerator Dish w/Lid
-Vintage Postal Scale
-Westclox Babyben, not working, but still cool looking!
-Anchor Glass Serva Snack set in box
-1.5 Quart Orange Refrigerator Dish w/Lid

These are things I have picked up over the holiday break, I have been so lucky!  I was so excited when I first found the Spring Blossom fridgie for $1.99 at a Goodwill, only to go to the next aisle to find the orange one for $3.99!

The little family of silver plated llamas (hanging out on top of the spring blossom casserole) I found at a Savers and they are actually quite valuable.  Two are very ornate, where one of the is very simple.  The ornate ones have stickers on them that say made in Peru, Silver Plated 925, etc., which is way cool!  I found them in the "bag" section at Savers where they have an entire wall of small bagged knick knacks! I love finding treasures in that section!  That is also where I found the vintage drawer pulls, I love vintage hardware!

Actually, come to think of it, the dolphin door knocker was in that section too.  I was looking at it for about 5 minutes racking my brain on what it could be, "Some kind of desk thing?" I was thinking to myself, when my boyfriend came over and was like, "Oh what's that?  A dolphin door knocker, that's cool, people love dolphin stuff."  Haha he is getting way better than me at all of this!

So today is when I picked up the Butterprint Serve and Store, it is my first find of Butterprint and I got it at a garage sale!  I know, I NEVER go to garage sales because I am disappointed by the loads of kids clothes, toys and plastic junk I see at 90% of yard/garage sales I go to.  This one looked cool, the ad stated that it was a boyfriend and girlfriend selling goods from each of their grandmothers, it was in a historic, nice neighborhood so I knew it was worth a shot!  I lucked out here!  In addition to the butterprint, I picked up a couple other pieces of Pyrex which are now soaking in the sink, I will post pictures soon, one of them will be staying in my personal collection!

Here is a set of four pink Pyrex dishes, 3 cake dishes and 1 square casserole baking dish.  They are all various shades, which I thought was cool!  They are currently listed on ebay as a set, hopefully I will get some attention here!  They are all in pretty nice condition, besides some scuffing from use!

The 2.5 quart Spring Blossom Pyrex casserole is also on ebay, here is a closeup, this is the one my boyfriend picked up for me all by himself!  He of course reaps the benefits from sales!

Last but not least, a pictures of my flower mold crafting products, ta da!  They were a big hit at Christmas!

Hope you enjoyed!  I will try to take some more pictures of a few other things tonight so I have some material for you all while I am on vacation!  Hope everyone has a HAPPY NEW YEAR! :)
