Working whenever I have a few minutes to sort through my treasures from this weekend’s citywide garage sales. Absolutely love this set of 5 refrigerator dishes and lids. They are colorful and have absolutely no chips in them. That is hard to find.
Fun melamine dishes from National Airlines. I believe they are from the late 50s or early 60’s. They were used when airlines actually used reuseable dishes on a flight to serve food. National Airlines merged with Pan Am in 1980 so these are a wonderful vintage find. This almost makes me long for the days long gone when service on airlines was at a premium. But then again, people smoked like a smoke stack then too. For someone who has allergies to smoke, that wouldn’t be so great.
In my area you can find snack sets from the 1950’s and 1960’s all the time, but these are a irridescent glass and are absolutely stunning.
These industrial spools are 11.5″ tall and they are made of wood. They are so fun. Love the chippy green paint on the ends. I can see using them as is, painting them, making them into bookends or even candlesticks. Very fun.
The final find for today is this amazing opalescent white McCoy vase. I was so surprised to see it at a garage sale at around 10:30 in the morning. I can’t believe it wasn’t snatched up. It has no chips and is just beautiful.
I will try to blog a few more finds this week. However, I am working hard to price items for my garage sale coming up this Friday and Saturday.
