    Keith, a Flea Market friend, had his first "Estate Leftovers Sale", since the California COVID-19 Stay At Home Order on March 17th 2020. He wanted to keep it small, so he had it on Wednesday, instead of his normal Sunday Advertised Sale, and it was almost Invitation only, trying to make it easier to Social Distance, at the Sale! Everyone wore Masks, and Keith had tables and open boxes, in the front, side, and back yards of his Home. It was a Fun Sale with plenty of Treasures to be found, and with very reasonable prices, just the way I like-um! :^D
    I messed up and forgot to take some photos at the Sale, but it was not your normal "Yard Sale"! Antiques, Turkish Rugs, lots of Art Work, Collectables, Glass, Pottery, and Jewelry, and more! :^D
    These are the things that I got Today, if you'd like to have a closer look at something, or some information about it, please let me know! :^D

    Thank you for looking, all comments are welcome! Please Wear a Mask, and Social Distance, so we can stop the spread of COVID-19! :^)

      Thank you Brian for the love, very nice of you! :^D If we all Wear a Mask, we'll all be Safer! :^)

      Thank you Jenni, I got a total of 16 pieces from the Sale, with a total of $80. I think a pretty good deal! :^D Thanks for the love that you gave too! :^D Keep Well, Wear a Mask, and Keep People around you Safe! :^)
    4. IronLace IronLace, 2 years ago
      Very nice haul of loot, Bill! There's some neat glass there & I also really like the Siamese cat figurine, so realistic that for a second I thought you'd got a real new cat!
      The sale sounds super, too. Made sure I wore my mask on my first train trip down to Sydney since March! Plus ordered some new ones so I'm all set up to shop & travel around safely...
    5. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 2 years ago
      Thank you Marin, I wanted to get more, but my Satchel, and Shoulder Bag were full! :^D The Siamese Cat Figurine was the last thing that I got, after I had everything laid out on the ground, so Keith could price it, I asked my son to grab it from a center table, while I stayed with my pile. There's always a lot of Art Work, Paintings and Prints, that I'd like to get, but my Wife says "Too many already", and even though she wasn't there, it was ringing in my ear! :^D So No Art, this time! Really tempted though! :^D
      We flew to Texas, and back, for our older Sons Graduation, just before the Pandemic Shut-down, and haven't taken any Public Transportation since, in fact going to Keith's Sale, is the farthest we've been from home, in another County, and just 25miles away, it felt a little strange, so we went back home, right after, we finished there!

      Thanks Kevin, and Marin, for the Australian love from the both of you! :^D Wearing a Mask and Social Distance, is how we can all Slow the Spread of COVID-19! :^)
    6. truthordare truthordare, 2 years ago
      WOW! Another great adventure and result Bill. I am so envious with these types of opportunties. I really like the glass and all the items, I am especially curious about the Asian box, and European dish with portrait and lovely green design garland around the rim. Would love to see more such as the opened box and the underside of the ceramic plate.

      I am wearing my mask as I write this to you, just as an ataboy and we hear you :-)

      Thanks Lisa, I'll try to show those for you, because I took lots of photos! :^D I was just telling my Son, about that I always like to Remind People to Wear a Mask, and that a lot of them let me know that They Do, then I looked up and You had Just Posted what I had said, and we both Smiled! :^D Thank you Lisa, for the love, and for keeping Canada, and the World Safer, by Wearing a Mask! :^)
    9. truthordare truthordare, 2 years ago
      Thanks Bill, you and your son must be a very nice pair of people, happy for you both.

      Here's information about the Northwood Light Green Opalescent Bowl, that I got from an Etsy post:
      Vintage from the 1900s


      Offered is a stunning green opalescent 3 toed bowl entitled Ruffles and Rings by Jefferson / Northwood Glass.
      The Ruffles and Rings pattern was first produced by Jefferson Glass and Northwood purchased the molds from Jefferson.
      It measures 3 1/4" tall by 9" wide.
      With the ruffled edges, this piece looks phenomenal.

      Thanks for looking! :^D Always Wear a Mask when away from Home, and Social Distance, to slow the Spread of COVID-19! :^)
    13. truthordare truthordare, 2 years ago
      That wineglass or decorative coupe merits some further study, I have not seen this before, it is fantastic in the glass color applications, and the bowl with the foot rest have high class written all over it. Hope someone has an inkling...I don't.

      Here's some information about the Shafford Made In Japan Siamese Cat from an Etsy Post:

      Beautiful vintage ceramic Shafford Chocolate Point Siamese cat figurine!

      It measures approximately 8" x 4" x 8 1/2" tall.

      It was made in Japan and has the original "Shafford Japan" foil seal still on the bottom and is stamped Chocolate Point Siamese, 95.

      Thank you for looking, and please Wear a Mask! :^)

      Hey Lisa thanks, what I have is on the bottom of the Ceramic, and Glass Stem Wine Glass.
      It has an Impressed mark on the bottom NEWMAN over CERAMICS over WORKS over Albq., N.M. A hand written paper sticker 2202 and a large signature Impressed across the bottom Very Large "D"ianna Allan in cursive and hard to make out, but I haven't searched this piece yet! It feels more like high fired Pottery Bowl and Base with the Glass Rod Stem finishing the Flower look! It will be easy to find out about the Pottery Artist if still in business, but later for me! By, I'm putting on my Mask NOW! Do you have yours! :^)
    16. truthordare truthordare, 2 years ago
      LOL, no sleeping with a mask on, need as much oxygen as possible for the old brain cells. Nitty night. Should be an interesting day tomorrow too.

      Here's a link to Newman Ceramic Works:

      These Tulip Wine Glasses are no longer made, but can still be found for sale. Brenda and Allan Newman started in 1978.

      Thank you for looking! :^D Keep The World Safe! Wear a Mask upon your Face! Stay Well! :^)
    18. truthordare truthordare, 2 years ago
      Thanks much Bill, I found many more now that I know what to look for, I love the color you have, seems it is retired. These are so innovative, and pretty flower shaped inspired. Another great piece. Thanks for the link too.
    19. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 2 years ago
      Thanks Lisa, I think my Wife might like to use it when we go to the Renaissance Faire again, I think it would look good there, but it doesn't look like they're going to have the Northern California Ren-Faire this year because of COVID-19! :^( I think that Newman Ceramics Works might not be producing anymore pieces, because the Newest Designs, on their Web-site is from 2016, I guess any sales are done on a Facebook Site, didn't see any others, only Used! :^D
      Thank you for the love aura, it's always nice to get! :^D Stay Well, and Wear a Mask, with Social Distancing, to slow the spread of COVID-19! :^)

      Hey Ralph, nice to have you take a look, and give a love for what you saw, thank you! :^D Wearing a Mask is the right thing to do, to help stop the spread of COVID-19! :^)

      I don't know how I missed this post Bill -- what a FUN time you must have had at the sale!!! :-) :-) :-)

      The first thing that caught my eye (and I guess I'm not alone?) is the lovely ceramic Siamese cat -- but I'm also loving the 'lady in pink singing' on the LH side of your arrangement, and I'm also curious about that (motorcycle?) sign in the LH background. Was that yet one more score from the sale??

      Oh and YES, my mask(s) are a now semi-permanent fixture hanging from a knob on the dashboard of my truck, which I never fail to wear when venturing out most anywhere 'in public'. Our city actually has enacted a mandate to do so but it is not a statewide directive...something which I couldn't help but notice during a couple of out-of-town service calls last week at various c-stores along the way...meanwhiles out Gov's daily updates continue to report that the 'average curve' here still isn't going in the correct downward direction... :-( :-( :-(
