Hi everyone, I hope you had a great weekend of finding vintage goodies! There were not many Estate sales in my area this weekend, the 2 I went to were duds - so I was forced to drive further out than I usually do. I went to 3 other sales - 2 of them I hardly found anything at, but at the third one - BINGO! It was advertised as a sale that you would have to "dig" in, and dig I did! I found oodles of vintage treasures, but I did not have time to clean them all up before I took pictures to share with you....so please excuse the dust on some of the items, and an occasional cobweb :) I also went to my usual thrift stores, but only found stuff at one of them.
First, I found not one - but two! lady head vases! I love the pretty gold that was used on the flowers she is wearing.
Next I found a huge ceramic owl, he must be about 16" tall. Not sure what I am going to do with him yet because he is so big - maybe he can go on the patio in the summer. Whooooo whooooooo knows, but wherever he goes, he will be cute.
I found a ceramic wall plaque with dimensional birds. I love the Blue Jay perched on the branch. He looks so lifelike!
Next, a cute little ashtray from Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Oops, I forgot to take the price tag off - it was only 50 cents.
I was so happy to find this adorable vintage wooden snowman scene, it expands to make a bigger scene.
Then I found a vintage metal Santa Claus wall light, and it works!
A vintage holy water font, I love the soft colors on it.
A vintage Austrian dish with beautiful pastel pink roses on it. It is about 12" long.
I found a cute old mouse candle - there are no tags on it, so not sure of the maker. I didn't have a mouse candle, and had never seen one before.
A vintage St. Francis planter, he is holding a sweet little bird.
A white pottery duck planter, just in time for Easter!
And I found more vintage jewelry to keep, and for use in my crafting!
A gorgeous necklace, bracelet, and earring set with AB rhinestones!
Another picture of the jewelry - I think the little orchid is my favorite! I also got a jar full of old crystal iridescent beads to use in my jewelry.
This is the last item I have for today - I don't think it is that old (maybe from the 80's?) but it is beyond cute! It is a metal windup toy called the "Bird Home". I took pictures from all angles so that you can see the adorable graphics on it. This toy has 3 mechanical birds that fly around in a circle on top of the bird house, a bird that comes out of the house, like a cuckoo clock, a little birdie on a swing that moves on the side of the house, another bird that comes out the front of the house, a clock that moves, and yet another bird on the roof of the house.
Love the owl graphics!
I will be taking more pictures of the other goodies that I got from this sale, and will post them in a few days. Until then, happy thrifting everyone! And thank you so much for visiting Pixie Vintage!
