The smallest things can make you happy if you're into junking. Or thrifting, or saleing, or fleamarketing, or whatever you want to call it. It's the only place in my life that I actually like to be surprised. Surprised, because I may not ever have seen it before or even know that it exists before I lay eyes on it and have to have it or die! Most often it doesn't cost that much!
I don't think McCoy pottery is red hot anymore, and the values have plummeted in the current market. All the better for me. I have always always wanted this pattern in ANY color, and here it is affordably priced at $16 in WHITE!
I love finding old shipping boxes and crates with printing and graphics. Terrific for storage and vignettes, and cheap!
Happiness is a hand crocheted runner in ecru with BOTH roses AND fleur de lis!
Some of you may recognize my little butter cow of the "Charlotte" pattern. What is she doing here?
I was sooo lucky to find a matching transferware bowl in the same pattern that I love so much.
Even the maker's mark is delightful!
But nothing put that Cheshire Cat grin on my face bigger than THREE PAIRS of all linen cutwork pillow cases in beautiful condition for 3.57 each pair. YIKES!!!!!
These items were from four separate markets. My luck usually comes with a lot of leg work!
I hope there are some nice surprises waiting for you too!
Ciao! for now!
