Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend 🙂 When I say I did nothing on Friday, I mean, I did nothing, LOL. Well, I ate leftover turkey and pie, read a cozy English mystery, watched an episode of This is Life with my sweet husband, and generally enjoyed having the entire family together while my sweet daughter is home from college.
But on Saturday, I got back to work. We restocked both my craft booth and my antique booth on Saturday and hit a decent estate sale and Goodwill on the way. I’ll share those finds with you shortly. Sunday we spent with our precious church family, as we do most Sundays, followed by a weekly Sunday nap.
Today’s farmhouse finds come from past garage and estate sales–let’s take a look.
A worn out pocket watch (cost: $1.00, value: not much, but it’s priceless to me), added to my collection.
One of my favorite recent finds, a galvanized thing-a-ma-jig with handles. Perfect for a smaller Christmas tree or centerpiece for a larger table. I’ve not settled on its function just yet. The ideas are percolating (cost: $4.00, value: $30-35.00).
A vintage glass jug, likely for vinegar or wine (cost: 50¢, value: $10-12.00). I would love to see it filled with maple syrup on a big old farm table with plates stacked high with pancakes. You can read about how to clean old bottles here.
A wicker hamper with built in handles (cost: $3.00, value: $30-35.00–it’s a nice size and looks better in person, lol). Have you seen my basket price guide?
A 1910, framed cow print, likely from an old dictionary (cost: $1.00, value: $15-18.00).
A folk art pig family (cost: $6.00 for the set, value: $45-50.00).
A newer pink glass rooster (cost: $1.00, value: 12-15.00). [What’s a farmhouse finds post without at least one rooster?!!]
Newer, poorly made glass often has ground-down bottoms like this–one sign that it’s newer.
A pair of seed packets (cost: free, value: good for crafting).
A large green platter that I plan to stencil, perhaps with “Welcome” (cost $1.00, value: $18.00 after stenciling). Did you read my post from a couple of weeks ago about vintage pottery?
MCP Co. stands for Mount Clemens Pottery of Mount Clemens, Michigan 1915-1987.
A vintage green tool case (cost: $1.00, value: $15-18.00). Perfect for some pretty pansies or marigolds.
A restaurant-ware gravy boat (modern ironstone) (cost: 50¢, value $6-8.00). Not long ago, I shared my ironstone collection, and if you need help pricing your ironstone, my ironstone price guide might help.
Made by one of the larger restaurant and hotel china manufacturers, Shenango China.
[Another] folding ruler (cost: 50¢, value: $10-12.00). I recently wrote a post about my vintage tool finds.
Final Fabulous Find: An antique Apollo Hard Candy tin manufactured by F. H. Roberts Co. (1897-1920)(cost: $2.00, value: $20-22.00). For more info about this candy company, check out this article: The Apollo Chocolates: A Vintage Candy Collectible Scrapbook.
