Fun Garage Sale Finds...


Garage sale season is here and I went to a really great one!  The lady holding the sale had lived on the SW coast of England for 7 years and had gathered many goodies while there.  She was parting with some of them in her sale!  Look at this wonderful old stoneware platter!  I don't mind chips and crazing...it's just life experience to me!  This old English beauty is from Hampson & Broadhurst circa 1850...



This pretty Johnson Brothers brown transferware platter has an unusual shape...



and look at this stoneware footed cake stand!  It appears to be quite old...I've not seen one like it and haven't been able to find out much about it...





These double handled cups were used for bouillion.  They are Winkle and Co Whieldon Ware pieces circa 1925.



I found some other goodies, too...some fun shaving brushes and cups...



and some old flower frogs with some little Japanese Bonsai scissors and wire.



This old 1911 chromolithograph has been newly re-framed...I love the graphics!




This nice sized old Czech Art Deco art glass light shade is really special!  It has four different colors and the original hooks and chains!  I am wondering if it is end-of-the-day glass, where the leftover colors were used in a piece at workday's end?



The big neighborhood sales start this weekend!  Can't wait!

Until next time...

  6. English chips and crazing is better than English fish and chips. Better for you too.
    Nice haul Linda, You've got the eye. Glad you were the one to end up with those pieces...at least for a little while.

  8. You found some fabulous things! I adore the old Litheograph, I think that's what it was called. It had the 10 commandments and the Lord's Prayer on it!
