TTT Week 53 Vintage and Thrifty Finds

Come on and join me for some super vintage finds.

TTT Week 53 title

Unfortunately, this week almost everything I bought is a keeper at least for now.

Bakelite Bracelet

I was checking out at one of my favorite thrift stores when I spied an ivory colored bracelet and asked the clerk to see it.  When she handed it to me she said it was ninety-five cents.  I knew at that moment it was going home with me.  The question remains “Is it Bakelite?”   If it is, I scored big time but if not that’s OK too because I love it.

Bakelite Bracelet 2

 I wore it a few days ago and received several compliments.   Everyone loves the diamond pattern on the bracelet.

English Tea Cups

I found two blue and white English cups.  Each side of the cup shows a different scene from 1792.  One side shows Stratford-on-Avon and the opposite side shows Penhurst Kentin.

English Tea Cup

Since these two cups did not have saucers I tried one of the cups with a Blue Willow saucer.  I like them together.

Limoges Butter Pats

These two tiny Limoges plates are most likely butter pats.  They are beautifully painted.  The trademark reads Porcelaine Limoges Made in France.  I’m keeping one the other is going to the antique mall.

Fostoria Nappy

All the milk glass in my collection is white at least it was until the other day when I found a Fostoria Winburn Peach/Pink handled nappy.  Fostoria made this pattern between 1958 and 1962.  It’s a keeper

Coca Cola Bottle Opener

When I started the deck redo one thing I wanted was a vintage bottle opener, one that could be attached to a deck post.  Well this Starr Coca Cola bottle opener I found really fits the bill.  Can’t wait to put it into use.

Wilton Creamer and Sugar Bowl

You don’t find a lot of pewter these days but this rustic Wilton pewter creamer and open sugar bowl caught my eye.  It is from the Wilton Armetale Plough Tavern collection introduced in the 1960’s but is now discontinued.  On the photo at the end of this post you can see three marks stamped on the side of the creamer – the Wilton trademark, USA, and one other mark that I cannot decipher.  If anyone knows what it is, please let me know.  The marks are on the side of the open sugar bowl too.

Tang Milk Glass Jar

Anyone who loves milk glass as much as I do would be drawn to this vintage jar.  It has a beautiful raised daisy pattern around the neck of the jar.  I purchased it not knowing how old it was or what  it originally held.  When I found the answer the orange color of the top made perfect sense.  It is a collectible jar from the 1970’s that held TANG, the instant orange drink mix.

I’m glad you stopped by today.  If you don’t already subscribe to my blog be sure to sign up by e-mail on the side bar or Hello bar at the top, that way you will never miss a post.  I would love for you to follow me on Pinterest here and Facebook here.  Thanks for visiting and come back soon!

  1. The pink milk glass is my favorite! Yes, these all look like keepers to me. When I saw the milk glass jar, I thought I recognized it. When you said Tang, it all came back – my grandmother had a collection of these.

  2. Great finds! I collect pewter,so I really like your pewter finds!

  3. Happy SYC Thursday! Love the pink milk glass. Don’t know that I’ve seen it before. So glad the widowed cups have found new mates. I love transfer ware and don’t mind mix and match one little bit.

  4. Hi Sharon. Gosh that pink milk glass is pretty! I love pink and found some gorgeous pink wine goblets at the thrift store yesterday so I was pretty happy. Please come and share at Five Star Frugal this week? Love, Mimi xxx

  5. What great finds you have. I love the Fostoria Winburn Peach/Pink handled nappy. It would look great filled with so many different things. I love to sew so I might fill it with vintage spools of thread. Also love the bracelet – the diamond pattern just sets it off. Thanks so much for sharing your finds with us.

  6. Love all of the treasures. I would have bought everything but the bracelet. Can you believe that I have never been able to wear a bangle? I can’t curl my hand up tight enough to get them on. Weird, I know; but it’s a fact! lol! The cups look great with the saucers. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
    Jann

    • My daughters are giving me hints at what a great Christmas gift the bracelet would be for them. They both love it but I’m keeping it.

  7. I’d have a hard time parting with anything too. I’m picking the pink milk glass as my favorite. Thanks for sharing at VIP.

  8. OMG I love that WIlton! I have a bunch of it! Thanks for sharing at Home Sweet Home!
