Welcome back for another edition of Vintage Fascination. Yes, I missed the last week with my fun giveaway of an Aladdin Heritage Plaid Lunch kit. If you entered the winner’s name is at the end of this post.
My daughter and I went thrifting last week and here is what I couldn’t come home without.
Couldn’t pass up this nice deep round basket with leather handles. It probably isn’t vintage but I never leave behind a nice basket with great storage potential at a good price.
This pretty Knowles platter is joining my collection of pink themed platters. It features pink and white dogwood blossoms with taupe stems and leaves.
The pattern is Blossom Time. Most Knowles dinnerware has a date code under their back stamp, where the first two numbers show the year of production. So this platter made in the USA is from 1951. The Knowles factory was in West Virginia but closed in 1963.
My bedroom is undergoing a few changes and I am looking for white/neutral decor. When I saw this kitschy white cat and kitten planter I just couldn’t resist. I found two like it on ETSY for $12 but I paid about a dollar for mine at Goodwill. It doesn’t have a maker’s mark that I can research but it is probably from the 60’s or 70’s. Not sure how I’m going to use it in my bedroom, any suggestions?
While I was looking around I saw this sweet little Dutch boy and girl figurine. I put in my cart thinking I probably wouldn’t buy it but it came home with me. So it is joining my blue and white collection. It does not have a trademark or country of origin.
You should never ever pass up a nice wooden cutting board in the thrift store. They are a fraction of the cost you would pay regular retail. Most of my wooden cutting boards are decor only but you can clean them up and use them too.
The winner of the Aladdin Heritage Plaid Lunch Kit is Chelle and I have notified her via e-mail.
