Alrighty, Here's Some MUCH Better Pics Of A Little Of The Weekend Pickins. Status: All Gussied Up For The Pics
All from one bag...all from the Goodwill in St. Charles. Score, Score, Score! Not too shabby if I do say so myself!
I wasn't sure about these glasses when I bought them. I'm not TOO into the '70s stuff but I'm
really glad I picked them up. The more I think about them the more I really like them. I have a
book on '70s collectibles and I thought I might find some info about the artist or type of art in
that but didn't have any luck.
There are two of each style of glass and each glass has a front and back design. I think each
depicts a "before and after". Well...two of them seem to anyway. The other two...one is cupid
front and back...the other is a sailor and mermaid? Weird.
I have a sizable collection of this Royal Haeger pottery. I have ashtrays and a big fish dish and
all sorts of whatnot in this pattern and color. I'm not sure what a compote is or what it is for
though. Is it just like a candy dish? It's hard to believe this made it through the Goodwill donation /
sortation process without getting chipped or cracked.
And here is the angry Tiki mug. It so shiny that it's hard to get a good picture of the face! It just
reflects everything around it. And I guess that just pisses it off. Up with the other Tiki mugs and
stuff it goes, even though it's made in China and not so much vintage (2004).
