Tuesday at Goodwill

Hi friends!  It's been awhile since I shared my treasure hunting bounty with you. Truth is ... there hasn't been much treasure hunting time lately.  However...I did escape briefly this past Tuesday to make a stop or two.   

I couldn't resist picking up 4 of these little salad plates. They go beautifully with my blue and white plates.

10 handpainted goblets (I'm getting spring fever!) And notice the platter with the green gingham border.  It goes with my Johnson Brother's Heritage dishes that I've had forever. 

Bird's Eye view of one goblet.  I love taking shots like this because it allows you to see all the details to the piece.  And this is what you see when you turn up the glass to take a drink!

An addition to my pottery collection.   

After a little research I discovered that the potter is Clyde Gobble, a master potter from North Carolina.  His work is available in galleries and in the Bob Timberlake shop in Blowing Rock.  He has some beautiful pieces.  I'd love to find more. I'd say it would be hard to beat the price I paid for the plate... 80 cents!  The pieces I found on line are about $85.

Another addition to the cabbage collection!  Two little cabbage votive holders. They were $1 each.   They are not Bordallo Pinhiero but will still look great with my collection! 
 I found 4 Pewter Wine Goblets in great shape.

I checked the engraved information on the bottom of each and checked for them online.

And here it is!  $56.00 a piece.  I like the $3.20 that I paid MUCH better!
This was a great find.  I originally thought it was a vase.  Once I got it home I figured it out.  It's a candle holder.  A cut lead crystal candle holder. 

LOVE this duvet cover.  It appears to have been handmade.  It's currently at my Mom's having some button holes and buttons added and then It's going to be on our guest bed.  And the best part... Only $2! 

A cookbook for my son who speaks French and loves to cook. 

More pewter.  These two tankards will go with some others I have.  I found them online for $68 a piece.  I paid(drumroll...) 80 cents!

I've never been a pink rose bone china girly girl type. However... I keep coming across these dishes and now have a full service for four.  These two teacups were 20 cents each.

I didn't really need more pillows but I loved this one so it's added to the collection!
Well... that's the latest!  I'm gearing up for a day of staging a beautiful home tomorrow.  Maybe I'll share photos!  Come visit again soon!
