Winter carries on with very little in the way of interesting estate sales for me so I have been going to the thrift stores to source items and have found a few good ones. Several weeks ago I picked up this aqua Dansk Kobenstyle lidded pot. This is the same one my mother had which we sold at her tag sale for $3 before I knew any better. These enamel pots have a following with some colors being more desirable than others. I am hoping for $40 on this but that might be a little high. It was $6.
This Quimper plate from France was $3. Many Quimper pieces have these distinctive looking figures on them. The plates aren’t too valuable but I couldn’t leave it behind.
These cute miniature elephants were in a baggie for $3. They are marked Japan on the bottom and I am hoping for about $15 on them. Each plays a different instrument. Too cute for me to resist picking up!
This is a set of jingle bells on a leather strap that hangs on the door. It is made by a Pennsylvania based company called Belsnickel. Too bad I didn’t pick these up before Christmas. They make a lovely sleigh bell sound.
I found two things in the stationery/office supply department. The first is this binder with cool Asian inspired graphics. It was only $.99 and I am hoping to get $10 for it.
The next thing I found in the stationery area was actually not stationery at all. It looked like a passport case but it is a Lauren Hutton make-up palette! Surprise! It was $4 and I am hoping to get $40 for it.
In the picture area I found a large paint by number of a ship wreck. They sometimes take a while to sell but I have sold every paint by number picture that I have listed. I will use key words like “nautical, beach and ocean” for this listing. It was $6 and I am hoping to get $40 for it.
I also found a few toys this month including a walking, roaring Jurassic Park T-Rex which unfortunately is missing the battery cover, a Calico Critters car and nursery school and a plush Gund Snuffles bear.
This is how I’ve been keeping myself entertained through this cold, snowy New England winter. Hope you all are doing well!
