While I was attending my mother's 94th birthday celebration in Illinois, John was shopping at an estate sale back home. He texted me some pictures of what was available and I told him I like the red orange gravy glass but look at what he got in addition to it, lol. And you all thought I was the shopper? The hardest thing for me now is deciding what to keep and which ones to sell at the store. I am definitely keeping the red orange glassware and also the ice lipped pitcher and the 2 apothecary jars. These are very heavy glass, a lot of them are marked Fostoria.
You think this is a lot? Wait, there's more!
A close up of my favorite.
I am keeping these too.
I am not very familiar with Fostoria or other glassware and I have no idea what to tag them when I take them to the store. The price that you see are the original tags at the estate sale. I would appreciate any advice from any experts out there.
There are 2 punch bowl sets and I am thinking of keeping this. It has a really nice glass ladle and I like the 16 pedestal cups.
Any idea on how much I can sell these? Just like I said, they are very heavy. They still need some washing.
Three divided relish trays and a smaller tray, vase, 2 drinking glasses and Christmas mugs still in boxes.
He bought all these too except for the plates in racks, which we have had for sometime. They are Fall colored dishes with a rooster. Maybe I will create a Fall tablescape with them first before I sell them.
I already tagged these teacups and I am taking them to the store.
John also bought these 2 raspberry glass lamps and he told me to keep them.
and this Father's night cap glass
What about this lamp, glass trays and tankards? I have no idea how much to sell them.
His van was full of boxes, including this which is full of dolls. I hope I can recover what he paid for all these. He said he paid $600 for all and he really thinks he got a very good deal. Do you agree?.
Ok, now I am done with what John bought. It's my turn to share what I bought mostly from Destin.
This is a majolica cupid vase that I got from an antique shop for $24.95. It is hard to tell from the picture but those are cupid heads on top.
A Le Creuset paella pan from the Premium Outlet Mall in Destin. I can't wait to try it......so heavy! I have other Le Creuset pots and pans which I like using.
I found these Bon Appetit napkin rings and a matching butter dome from Williams Sonoma. I also bought a matching plateau which you will see in the next photo, all from their clearance table.
Here is the plateau. The tea set I hand carried from my Illinois trip. There are more pieces but I'll show them after I take pictures of my tea party which I am having on Saturday. One of our Filipino friends here is moving to KY to take her Ph.D. in Education so we are giving her and her husband a despedida party.
John and I went to one antique mall in Destin and everything was so expensive. John went back to the car but I kept browsing. Then I found a booth who is having a 50% off moving sale and saw these Italian plates, 10 dinner plates and 9 salad plates. After checking the price from the sales clerk who had to call the owner, I grabbed them. I got them all for a total of $15.00 and I was so happy, less than $1 each. It pays to be patient! I already own a set of these but these will just make my set bigger and I paid a lot more than that on what I already have.
I also bought these 4 Blue Willow divided plates from the next booth for $16 each less 10%. Other booths were selling them for $26 each.
John bought the cone shells from another antique store and I bought this toile cup and saucer from Marshall's for $5.
When we got home, a package containing this tea set was waiting for me. I ordered it from Annie's Tea Time where I usually order my Whittard of Chelsea instant teas.
Thanks so much for visiting.
