A Quiet Thrift Day

I'm not sure if I'm just being more selective in my thrifting purchases or if there just wasn't anything worth buying out there right now. It was a very quiet day and the few sales out there were extremely over-priced. I did manage to find a few treasures.

My favorite find was this ceramic figurine of three Wirehaired or Sealyham Terriers. The figurine is of a mom and two puppies. The puppies are absolutely adorable in their poses and expressions. I think it is from the 50s because it is marked "Made in Japan" on the bottom.

Keeping with the dog theme, we also found this pillowcase of Poodles on Parade. I think the technique used to embellish this was called Liquid Embroidery. Who could resist pink and aqua poodles?

The last treasure we found was a silver plated baby spoon with the Gerber baby portrait. This version was from the 1950s by the Winthrop Silver Co.

I hope everyone had a wonderful day of thrifting.

  3. You may have had a quiet thrifting day, but what you found was fabulous! I love the dog figurine; they are so sweet! That poodle pillowcase is wonderful; I think my mother did some of that liquid embroidery in addition to regular embroidery. The baby spoon is adorable. Great finds!!
