I'm raising my granddaughters and it keeps money tight. But with my husband working out of town most of the time, we get our shopping therapy in thrift stores.

  1. Hey Gillian, Howell or Howele has not crossed my mind as the first initial is rather clearly an H. But the names first letter looks like an M, but danged if I can figure it out....lol. But now I’m try...
  2. OMGosh, thanks for the guidance Fortapache and Gillian! Fort, I think like you think as the irredecent color makes it carnival. But almost all carnival glass is cut or etched. And that leads me to ag...
  3. If I’m not mistaken, there is still a bus/trolley making the same route. San Diego is the only city other than my hometown where I actually kinda know my way around. Very cool post card of people in...
  4. I love happy endings;~}
  5. Very cool item, give it a few days and someone may come along that has info to help.
  6. I love these loud old fans, easy to sleep by. I have a couple I sent home with a friend to repair, that’s been months ago. Hope he didn’t fix them and get hooked on the noise...lol Not that I’d blam...
  7. Thank you Phil! So you feel like this is not vintage? I know it’s in nice enough shape to be new. How are you? I’m a poet...lol, who didn’t know it.
  8. LMAOffffffff
  9. Phil is a nice man! But I have to say, something about those sock suspenders just do it for me...lol This is a great find, very cool!
  10. I’m guessing these are too small to be shoe stretchers?
  11. Very interesting. I suggest adding pics of the markings. Many smart peeps on here may help if they had more pics. And any history on it....how did you come across this?
  12. My American Legion still does these different colored chips. And they don’t expire. So when you find one a couple years down the road, it still buys the same drink the purchaser intended you to have....
  13. I know nothing about this stuff, but it’s my opinion only that when stones are so securely placed as these are....they should stay where they are. I think very differently of glued in place stones. Bu...
  14. So cute!
  15. Nice display you have going on with the light coming through, very lovely!
  16. I so agree with the above comment. Very nice find, even better deal...or steal at 8.00....wow!
  17. I think it may be some sort of kitchen device, just a guess.
  18. Awesome!
  19. By today's standards he would not even be investigated....lol
  20. My memory is not serving me well tonight as I got overheated working in the yard today. And being a lifelong Floridian makes that embarrassing. Anywho, the Spanish shipwreck of the Atosia (likely spel...
  21. This is a wild guess, but see if you can find anything in the P. Derby Chair Company catalogs online. Your chair looks to be from the right era. Best of luck!
  22. I absolutely love this!
  23. I clicked in to see if it was a monster high, but that subject has been covered....lol Makes me think Monster High is a take from a limited Barbie edition..hmmm.
  24. Thanks PostcardCollector! I was hoping you may have some info on these?
  25. I just love the Zenith one! Nice collection.
  26. This is amazing, as I love the subject! I've spent my life on or near water. And where you call it a prawn, I call it a shrimp. Nice find!
  27. Great post! And congrats on finding a treasure it sounds as if you have spent many years looking to find.
  28. Groovy find! Are you in Texas helping? Either way, stay safe.
  29. I agree with all above comments! I assume you realize this but just in case....the 24k clasp will eventually give out and break after enough opening and closings. I've had to replace all of mine, and...
  30. The planter is very nice, but I love the story of how you have a connection to this planters maker. Really great post, thanks for sharing!
  31. The photo is icing on the cake, love it!
  32. Thanks for all the loves you all!
  33. That's odd, I comment on it and it finally showed up in Show & Tell. I'm happy you all will get to see it, looking forward to any insight you may have?
  34. Lol. This says posted 8hrs. ago, but no one can see it.
  35. Thanks KarenLR71! And I so agree, it holds its own in the beauty department. Thanks for stopping by! Now GeodeJam, I could not agree more! And maybe that explains why it doesn't fit any of my lam...
  36. It's a good thing I stake no claim of any real knowledge about this sort of thing, until I read this post I thought I was looking at clear lucite....lol Personal opinion is I find glass much, much ni...
  37. This is a cool post! I love the gentle thought put into the arrangement of these items, and I have seen many of these buckles over the years and never thought much of them. But now I bet I never see ...
  38. Sure does look like at least 18k gold, I can't imagine it's higher than that because it gets too soft to hold the stone securely. But it looks higher to me, and the stone is really a beautiful match t...
  39. Such a cool item, I love it!
  40. Ok, now we are likely getting somewhere with European and metric lamps. Because it dang sure don't fit any of the three lamps I've tried around here. Thanks so much Scott0363 and Fhrjr2, hint I'll do...
  41. Nope, I've tried three lamps of various ages. Any other ideas?
  42. I thought they were mostly universal in size. So my mom tried it on a lamp and it didn't fit, think I'll check behind her. I'll let you know. Thanks Slackjack and Fhrjr2!
  43. 3" long.....I made a booboo.
  44. Too funny to be so true ^^^^^^
  45. Oh I know you must be heartbroken. But keep looking, maybe another will surface.
  46. You'll have a much better shot of someone helping if you add photos of the back and marks. It's amazing!
  47. That's what I think Phil. But I was really hoping someone knew something about them. Did you notice the name on them? I've tried to find anything about him doing this kind of stuff but come up empty...
  48. I complain way to often about thrift store price sticker placement. But I've been very lucky with Goof Off only removing sticker residue and nothing more. Nice find!
  49. A truly wonderful piece to have. I took a few minutes and was able to read most of it. But you are right, takes a bit to get used to her writing. Really nice unique piece!
  50. I'm jealous, I haven't turned up anything this beautiful from my dumpster dives.....so far that is. Great find and great save!
