My usual thrift haunts and one overpriced, nothing too thrilling estate sale brought an odd mix of finds this past week. Up first, a box of dominoes-- us crafters can't have too many, right? Also a wooden salad fork and spoon from Wisconsin Dells. They are marked Japan on the backs so must be pretty old. Kind of an strange souvenir, don't you think?
I bought this for the box more than anything, but the stand is in there and complete. Plus the original price tag is on one side. Take a guess...
A kitschy set of Las Vegas coasters. Plastic, no less.
A bud vase from Pigeon Forge, TN. I knew what is was before checking the makers' mark on the bottom since I have one very similar to this that belonged to my mother-- see the following photo.
So the answer to the question of the day: the original cost of that tree stand was 84 cents!! What ever happened to that world???
Thanks for viewing and have a nice day out there!
