Maddie and I hit the garage sales this morning and I had more luck than I've had in quite some time -- well, besides last week, but that included an estate sale which is a whole different thing. Today was just garage sales, but some pretty good ones for a change.
That Danish Handcraft Guild Christmas book (ISBN 0684159759) is in excellent condition and includes some nice Scandinavian designs and at about $.15 it was a steal, as was the charted folk designs booklet.
And I couldn't resist these Hull and McCoy planters at $8.00 for the lot. I especially like the olive colored one in back. . .
which, as you can see here, has a pretty embossed floral design. It says Hull F79 on the bottom, but I can't find any info on this design online.
There was also a little Hazel Atlas glass measuring cup -- glass measuring cups being one of my obsessions this year -- and more glass ornaments. Did I mention that I already bought a *huge* box of Shiny Brites earlier this year? Well, here are even more -- some Shiny Brites and some unmarked. Now I have to try to clean them up which I hear is near impossible. I found some info on cleaning them here and here. Wish me luck!
