I realized that there were several treasures I had collected throughout the year from garage sales, estate sales and on Craigslist but had never previously posted. This seems to be a great time to reminisce about the joy of my 2010 treasure hunting exploits.
I have to start off with something that I have been searching for and finally found at a relatively reasonable price. This is an 1865 clock made by the Welch, Spring & Company of Forestville, CT. The reason I have been searching for this clock is because my son is descended from one of the co-owners of this company. This could be considered my son's great great great great grandfather's clock. Usually these clocks are so expensive but I found this on Craigslist and one day I will have it refurbished.
Another treasure I found at an estate sale is this Duncan Miller, Tear Drop Relish Dish with lid. My mother used to collect some Duncan Miller glassware so I was thrilled to find this lovely piece in such good condition. I also bought a large, Duncan Miller, Canterbury serving dish at the same time.
This elephant cookie jar was found at an estate sale for half price. He was just so very cute so I had to buy him.
Another favorite find was this Zero fan. My father used to have a larger version of this and I remember playing with it as a child. I found this at a garage sale for $2 but I haven't plugged it in yet to check if it works.
Well that wraps up my fabulous miscellaneous finds from 2010. I can't wait to share new thrifting treasures in the coming months.
