Recently there have been days of no finds at the thrift store, followed by days of great finds. I guess the idea is to “just keep swimming.”
I have been finding some nice pottery. This is a piece of Italian pottery marked La Musa. It is a heart shaped trinket box with a very cool modern graphic. I paid $4 for it at Goodwill and it sold quickly for $29. I was glad I was able to list it before Valentines Day and maybe that’s why it sold so fast.
This sugar and creamer set is by Dansk. I love the abstract blue and white decoration. It is a pattern called Arabasque. This was also from the Goodwill and I was happy to be able to find all three pieces of this set even though they were in different spots on the shelf. I paid $6 for the set but I am hoping to get $50 for it.
I thought this mid century modern dog salt shaker marked Japan was too cool to leave behind. Unfortunately it didn’t have its mate and I don’t think it will bring more than $10 but I still think he’s awesome.
Two more ceramic pieces I bought are this blue and white Mottahedeh plate and this Taylor & Ng naughty dog mug. There is a series of Taylor & Ng mugs featuring different types of animals in “playful” positions.
In the plush area I picked up this Noah’s Ark by FAO Schwarz. It is missing the mate to the giraffe set. I have sold this same item a few years ago. I think it sold for $20 then.
My most exciting find recently was this American Girl doll who was in with the regular toys and marked $4. She is a doll named Nellie. Unfortunately she didn’t come dressed but I was still happy to find her!
Those are some finds for the first half of February. Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone!!
