127 This...127 That. Get Used To It! I Picked Up Plenty From The 127 Corridor Worlds Longest Yard Sale. Lots Of Smalls. Hey Look, Here's A Couple Now! Status: Tagged And In Booth 307.
Again, this is just a handful of the small items I picked up along highway 127 last weekend. 'Memba that I told ya that Sunday was a good day to get some sweet deals? These were all late Saturday finds that I picked up from a guy who had pretty much thrown in the towel and was asking only ONE BUCK for anything he had. How could I resist THAT!?
Ha! Figured it out. Nichibei Potteries! It's called an 8 inch Flat Bowl and costs $45 each new. I just
dropped of TWO of these in my booth (307) at The Antique Mall Of Creve Coeur at a MUCH lower
price. Having Just Now learned what these are, I'll be in there changing that tag soon...but I wouldn't
be to awful mad if I found them missing when I get there. I can't hardly believe I made out that name
on the bottom: Costantini.
Much easier to ID. This Centura Corning bowl has an amazing Lotus pattern in blue and black.
Unfortunately there is a little rust stain on the outside near the bottom. Maybe with a little work and
some CLR it might come off. Such a shame because the inside is nearly flawless. Just look at that
reflection. Doesn't it kinda remind you of a Spirograph pattern you made when you were a kid?
What? You don't remember Spirograph?
Ah, finally...true vintage! This lovely bakelite and steel art deco style 1950s View Master projector
still works after So many years. I'm a sucker for Bakelite...and vintage toys! I guess I should find a
few View Master reels to offer up with this, but for now it's sitting in the booth as is waiting for it's
new owner to pick it up.
