More Smalls That Have Been Accumulating In The Back Of Frank. You Ever Do That? Find A Box Or Bag Of Goodies You Forgot About In The Car? Status: Bonus!
Some of this stuff has only been in the back of Frank (the Focus Wagon) for a few days...OK, maybe a week, or two)...but some of it, dunno...maybe since last summer! I was cleaning out the car for a roadtrip and brought all this inside...to make room for more!
OK, so maybe that means I have a problem. I don't care. We're headed to Canton TX for a few
days to the GIANT First Monday Flea Market. That's the kind of place where having this sort of
"problem" pays off! So anyway, I had to clean out the wagon and check out the spoils. I don't buy
just any Taylor Smith Taylor - Jamaica Bay dishes anymore...because I have a TON of them already.
There is such a thing as overkill, but when I find bowls and small plates (I don't have tons of those), I
snatch them right up! I just love the Tiki-tomic pattern.
These must be the Girlfriend's. I don't normally buy salt and pepper shakers. These though, these are
pretty cool. Vegas Baby! One could, if one was crazy, make a game out of seasoning one's food with
these. The salt shaker is marked "Japan" and they have real cork corks in them so they're probably
Also the Girlfriend's, but how cool are these? Replica Ball caning jar salt and pepper shakers...new in
box! And they are actually made in the USA by Ball! Bonus, they came with the original packaging.
You know she'll never let these go. I wish I could find a Broyhill Brasilia curio cabinet to further display
all her salt and pepper shakers. She's got a great collection.
More glassware? You betcha! Glassware seems to sell pretty good at the antique mall (The Green
Shag Market - Booth 5!) so I always pick up anything cool that I find. And this is a great set, having
ten glasses and no wear to the pattern. I'll have these, and a lot more new smalls...and maybe some
new chairs...at the booth space soon. Plus, who knows what I'll be bringing back from Canton!
