Saturday Treasures and Treasures and Treasures


Did I have a fun couple of days or not?  I want you to know that I had to take two photos to get the majority of my "goodies" to share with you.
 
Now keep in mind, this does not include my trip to Ross, TJMaxx and JoAnns.
 
I decided to take a couple of days off and go to Missouri to visit my dear friend Sabra.  So, I met her and we had lunch at this neat little tea room in Monett, MO.  Wonderful lunch!! We sat and talked for a couple of hours and then hit a little antique mall and I found quite a few things.
 
 
So, after we both left Monett, I drove back to Neosha, MO to my sisters.  We had dinner at a fantastic Oriental Buffet in Neosha.  I don't do Chinese food, but I absolutely love this food.  It's a buffet and all the chicken is white breast meat and oh my gosh - is it good!!
 
Then, my sister Jean and I got up Saturday morning and went shopping and shopping and shopping.  We hit several antique malls in Joplin, had a great Mexican lunch at Maria's and shopped till we literally dropped.
 
You probably think all we do is eat and you're pretty close to right.  Shop and eat.  Repeat. Repeat.
 
 
I wanted you to see all the precious stuff I found.  Vintage pieces of china, egg cups, crystal, cups, baby's silver comb and brush, salt and pepper shakers, buttons, lace, rolling pins........
 
My husband thinks I have an addiction to salt and pepper shakers - wonder what would ever make him think that of me?
 
 
Crochet pieces, more buttons, more lace, more salt and pepper shakers.  The old vintage quilt in the background I bought for $15.00!  I was wanting one for a background and this one is torn along one of the edges, so, it was perfect for what I wanted.
 
Now, to my three best buys of the weekend:
 
 
A new, "old" highchair for Laynee for my house!  Isn't it unusual.  It's in perfect condition.  I have never seen one made like this.
 
 
Five of these in my Rose Point china.  I don't know what they actually are.  They are too large for egg cups - unless you had really big chickens!  Do you know what they are called?  I found 6 of these.
 
 
Be still my heart!! Two new pieces of McCoy!!
 
So, alot of this will be going on one or the other of my Etsy shops, so if you see something you have to have, let me know and I'll alert you when I list it.  (The highchair, Rose Point and McCoy don't go!!)
 
Enjoy all of my treasures.
 
Till next time, Judy

Two of my most favorite pastimes, eating and shopping. I think those are egg cups, if you flip them over? xo

Curtains in My Tree said...


good deal Lucille, that's an old saying LOL

It is so fun to shop for vintage things

Julie said...

Hi Judy - those are egg cups. I have some like this. Turn them over. The smaller part is the egg cup and the larger is the base (where you can keep your second egg warm while you eat the first). Enjoy, J.

NanaDiana said...

Wow, Judy-I want to go with YOU...you found some great things - of course, we would probably have to arm wrestle over a few items! I LOVE that high chair and I have never seen another like it. I wonder if it was custom crafted? Great finds! xo Diana

Bev said...

Wow! Great job! I keep asking but you don't answer me...where do you keep all the stuff you buy? Do you have some storage units or a 10,000 square foot house? Seriously....I'm a fan! You get the Super Shopper award!

Cheery wave! love that quilt!

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Hi Judy. It's nice to meet a namesake. Looks like you made a great hall. Such fun when it works out that way. We have a Maria's Mexican restaurant here in town that is good also, but thrifting, for me, this weekend, not so good..Happy Monday..Judy

Susie from Bienvenue said...

That little highchair is adorable!!! Wonderful finds indeed

Empress Bee (of the high sea) said...

oh beautiful stuff!

smiles, bee

Debbie @ MeandMyDIY said...

Wow! You are a treasure hunter for sure! Why can't I ever find great stuff like that when I go hunting? I must not be looking in the right places! I love the silver shakers. I have a couple pair, but had to resort to eBay because I could never find any around here. Have a great week!

Melanie said...

Shop and eat...you're my kind of gal! I love all your treasures. I bet you had a ball finding all that stuff; that's half the fun!

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Shopping and eating...Sounds like fun to me!!! I love salt shakers too! Those red ones are so cute. So glad you had a great few days

Simply Debbie said...

Hi Judy,
Thanks for stopping by. I have been having a time with internet provider. We lived in Broken Arrow for about 7 years. I loved everything but the BA Express. It is a little better now...we take it to get to Bixby. I live in Enid. I sure miss Woodward park, cherry street and Philbrook.
I collect milk glass and green glass...I would be interested in your milk glass salt and pepper shakers and the McCoy pottery...I am finding out mailing dishes is quite expensive or can be.
Please stop by any time. I too am constantly looking for lace and buttons...unusual lace and lace in general.
hugs

Japolina said...

Hi Judy, Thanks for sharing the pics of your wonderful finds. That high chair is so sweet!
Thanks for your kind comment on my great niece's photo.
I'm taking a break from posting while sitting with a very sick friend. I'll catch up with you soon.
Have a nice day, Mildred

Sweet Posy Dreams said...

Wow, great finds. I really like that highchair. Just gorgeous.

Donna said...

Wow, what a haul! Love all of your salt & pepper shakers!

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

You did amazingly well...what a selection of goodies...

You must have the eye to see the jewel among the chaff.

Nancy Carr said...

The larger egg cups could be for duck eggs. I saw somewhere what they are called, however, can't remember what now. Great finds.

Olive said...

Yay on those McCoys. That always does the heart good. I immediately saw all those S&P shakers too:}

Beth said...

What lovely pretties you found. The high chair is darling!
Be a sweetie and thanks for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,

Paula said...

Oh, those red striped salt shakers! Can I interest you in a trade? A couple of icon shrines for the salt shakers?

Claudia said...

As an egg cup collector, I think they ARE egg cups, Judy. The smaller opening at the bottom is for the egg itself and the larger opening is for a soft boiled egg. They are beautiful. So wonderful that you had time with your sisters and good friend!
