Catherineholm and Kosta Boda!

I drove less than an hour (55 minutes) to a church sale with a $10 early bird. Several times this summer I have paid an early bird and it was not worth it but this one turned out to be worth it. There was one small toy table which I went to first because that is my comfort zone. I couldn’t find anything there so I started to look at the housewares and home decor tables when I spotted a Catherineholm baking pan with the wire holder in light blue (my favorite color!) I love the simple graphic lotus design. I learned about Catherineholm about a year ago and have been looking for them ever since. I was very excited! I also found this mid century Kosta Boda figural bottle and a Danish design canister. As I was paying the lady checking me out said “Oh – how did I miss this!” as she saw the Kosta Boda bottle. OK lady. I know. You are a volunteer so you get first pick. Sigh. Another reason why there is less and less to find at these sales sometimes.

So that was an exciting sale for me. I paid $10 to get in and $10 for everything I bought there. While waiting on line I overheard some women talking about another sale nearby which I quickly googled on my phone. Thank you iPhone. Thank you eavesdropping. I bought one good item there that was a Calico Critters dollhouse with figures and furniture. I love these sets and I think they are adorable. I have loved miniatures and dollhouses ever since I was little and I enjoy finding them at sales. This set was $5. Sold!


One of the things I collect are dollhouse miniatures. I have 3 room boxes that I collect for. Here is a picture of the living room room box. It looks like the cat knocked down the lamp.


The last sale I went to was one I wish I had been able to get to earlier. It was at a High School and it looks like they had 3 long cafeteria table filled with toys. There wasn’t much left by the time I got there but I found a Max plush from Where the Wild Things Are, a rare Folkmanis puppet of a wild boar and a Jessie costume from Toy Story.

Looking forward to seeing what others have purchased!

  1. I love your wire holder! I’ve seen Pyrex a lot but never “in the wild.” I’m glad your entry fee paid off for itself 😀
