Well, it has been a busy week so I didn’t get to a lot of sales
but I have a few things to show you.
My daughter actually found this vintage ice cream scoop in its original box. The graphics on the box are terrific. Peerless scoops came in various sizes for serving ice cream, mashed potatoes, fancy desserts, vegetables, salads, and cheese. Ok, I’m not so sure about using the scoop for cheese but to each his own. The Peerless model 601 came with both a red or black handle like mine. My daughter isn’t going to want to sell it so it is probably going to be a keeper.
I’ve shared with you before that I love old tools so I couldn’t pass up this old curved claw hammer the other day. It looks like it has hammered lots of nails over the years.
It has a Firestone Standard mark on the side of the claw head though you can barely see it in this photo.
I have started picking up plastic Thermos when I see them at a good price. The red and black one is going to the booth this week to see if there is any interest. I already have another one like it in my collection. It cost me very little so the selling price is on the lower side. Several of the plastic ones I’ve collected are in fall colors so you will see some of them in a fall vignette.
I see these baby planters in thrift stores often but I’ve never bought one before. This one doesn’t have a trademark but it has a blue “Made in Japan” sticker. It is probably from the 1960’s. I’m going to take it to the booth to see if it sells, if not I’ll keep it.
My bargain of the week though not vintage is a bag of 21 bottle brush trees for less than a dollar. They can be used as is or bleached and dyed. Maybe I’ll dye some in pastel colors, especially pink. You can find directions for bleaching and dyeing bottle brush trees on Distressed Donna Down Home’s blog here.
