This glass, or vase, or whatever it is is just weird. It says FOR JUST on the top and ABOUT ANYTHING on the bottom. All around the sides it says all sort of "J" words like JuJuBee's, Jerky, Jigsaw Blades, Jalopy Keys and my favorite - JUNK. It was $1.25 with 25% off, so once I saw JUNK, I knew I had to have it. I may use it to hold flowers this Spring. What type of flowers? Why JONQUILS, of course! :D
This old match holder with an owl on it will go to the booth.
As I walked around the thrift store, I kept spotting different pieces of pottery scattered about. Since the price was right, I gathered them all up, then cut some of them when I saw they were just Mexico pottery. But I was lucky enough to find three great pieces in the mix. The round one is Niloak which was made in Arkansas in from 1909 to 1946. The middle piece is Nemadji Pottery which was made in Minnesota in the 1930's to 2000. The small piece is Silver Springs Pottery made in Florida in the 1930's. I already have teh Nemadji piece listed on ebay, I am keeping the Nilaok since it was made so close to home and I am still researching the Silver Springs piece.
Speaking of ebay. I have been picking up Scrabble games for a few years. I have been dumping the letter tiles into a big gallon jar and it finally got full. Today, I made the boys help me count, sort and alphabetize all those tiles. I ended up with 1026 tiles. I listed them on ebay tonight with a starting bid of $59.99 (I never start for much over $9.99 due to the fees, but right now listings are FREE, so I decided to aim high). Anyway, I had a BID on them within NINE minutes. So, grab up those Scrabble tiles! And sell them! FYI the racks are worth selling, too).
