This weekend, on a weird little tour of our area estate sales with Miss Kate, we found this Fire King bowl:
the likes of which we hadn't ever seen before. There was another with blue circles that I bought as well. This one is signed "Fred Press," and though I can find other things with the signature, I can't seem to match this pattern.
I also acquired
A California Original brown bowl with a bright orange glaze inside. I don't know a lot about it, and I just started looking up info on the Interwebs about this company. There doesn't seem to be a lot of hardcore collectors or guides.
I've been picking up a lot of planters in anticipation of spring and buying a new house. I got this one:
with no markings on the bottom. It is a yellowish green and has handpainted cherry blossoms or dogwood branches on it. I thought it was really pretty, and I think I paid four bucks for it.
Of course I picked up some tins! This one, made in England, is in more perfect shape than any I have ever bought before! I paid seven dollars from a store, but it was worth it!
I also got a kitchsy jewelry box that I thought I could clean up, but I don't know if that's really going to happen. Life lesson: Some things can't be cleaned...
It doesn't look so bad here, but it's a mess underneath. hmmm.
Well, that's just a TASTE of all the cool stuff I got with Miss Kate this weekend! She bought vintage hats - they were only five bucks a piece! And they were super intricate and fancy with lace and flowers!
