Last Weekend's Junk

 I only had time for the VOA and Nina and Joe's Division Street Antiques last weekend but still got a nice little junk score.  I hit the Mother Lode of vintage crochet pattern books at the VOA.  They will eventually be listed in my Esty.
 These vintage salt and pepper shakers are already listed.  The frosted glass has a cool art-deco design.  The tops are plastic but have that perfect Jadeite green color we all know and love!
 A few neat buttons for the collection.  Love that poodle in the lower right!
I think this wooden hand is a business card holder but it is a body part so you know I love it and it will be staying with me, at least for a while!

Wow. Nice Buttons, I was just entertained by a couple of good button stories and techniques for cleaning the buttons as well. And you really got some nice unique buttons to display there. Congrats on you great finds.

A hand? Well at least it's not a baby head! hahaha! I saw a pink tin like that one on another blog. Did you see it? I'll have to put my thinking cap on to remember where it was! Sweet hugs!

Button love and I'm eyeing that cool tin with the handles. Love those sweet salt and pepper shakers, cute as a button.

I have the hand and it is part of a set - one lies down and one stands up.

Have fun with your new treasures.

Another good score. Cute little salt and pepper. Great buttons, of course I love the red one. But the hand, oh my, that is cool. Was that at VOA or Nina and Joe's?

Annette said...

I'm head over heels for that tin! At least the hand isn't creepy looking. It's really quite graceful and elegant!
