Pretty Dishes and a Lucite Cat

The sales are becoming more and more scarce around here as the temperature drops. I went to one sale at a Greek Church and two other smaller sales. At the church I found this interesting cat. He is made out of lucite or acrylic. When I researched him I found out he is by an artist from Brazil named Abraham Palatnik. The ones that I saw on line are in better condition than mine but we’ll see.

At the same sale I picked up this cute Hello Kitty tea set. I love Hello Kitty and this heart shaped tea set was just so sweet, even though it is incomplete.

The next sale I went to didn’t really seem to have too much for me so I ended up buying some dishes which is something I don’t usually do. This one, with roses, was marked Schumann and Bavaria. I thought it was especially pretty. It is a 12″ cake plate. If it came with the pedestal I’ve seen it sell for $38. I don’t know what I will get. I will try for $20.

Also at this sale I picked up this vintage canister for $1. It is not very valuable but I thought it was cool and couldn’t resist for $1.

This is a toy I picked up at the thrift store. It is a dragon from How to Train Your Dragon named Monstrous Nightmare.

This is a picture of my cat destroying my couch because he is so heavy. He has a problem digesting his food properly. It’s not really his fault but look at my poor couch.

Sales are picking up due to the holiday season. I hope you are all doing well and finding great items!!

    Sweet finds! Love the modern style cat. About that can…you can unscrew the glass top, and you put it in the oven (350 I think) until those crystals turn a deeper blue/purple color. Whatever you put in the can then stays fresh. Not that you’re gonna use it, but some fun info. It is called a Crispy Can, or Krispy Can, if you want to search. Visiting from Thriftsaurus.
