These first few finds are from the same estate sale where I found all of the vintage Christmas goodies that I showed last week. After I crammed my shopping bag completely full of Shiny Brite boxes, I was trying to fight my way through the crowds to go pay. I attempted to keep a hand on a very sticky Porter (I'd given him a Tootsie Pop to buy a few quiet minutes so I could grab ornaments) when I saw this 7Up crate. It was the first day of the sale so I paid full price of $10 but that's a deal, since they usually go for twice that at antique stores around here. And I luuuuuurve me some old wooden soda crates!
I couldn't believe they were still there, considering the crowds that had already been through the house, and especially since they were only $2 each. I prefer silver trophies but for that price I'm willing to branch out! Each one is engraved on the base: one for Welcoming Committee 1951-52 and the other for Social Committee 1955-56. The earlier one is missing its metal seal but I think if I am careful I can remove the dried glue residue and give them both a good cleaning with some Brasso.
The last item I bought at that sale was this sweet little covered Japanese lustreware cup. This piece reminded me of something I'd find in my dear Gram's house. I'm not sure what it's all about--it's quite small and seems an odd shape for a sugar bowl. Perhaps lid was married from another piece in the same set? It's a mystery, but I had to have it. I am brewing up a post about Japanese lustreware so I'll talk more about it later this week.
And that's all from that sale! Did you get out junking this weekend, or did your two-year-old (literal or figurative!) get in the way of your plans? ;)
