Goodies Galore

Good morning fellow blogging buddies!
So a few weeks ago,
Bob and I,
along with another husband and wife antique team that we know,
woke up before the roosters,
before the birds...
4:00am to be exact,
and drove 4 1/2 hours to do some shopping. 
Half way into our trip it decided to rain.
It was raining when we arrived to our destination.
However avid dealers that we are,
we made the best of it and it did stop raining for the most part.
We did find some goodies for the store,
and of course for us.
First for the store.
I love adding a candle to these round graters.
We have been asked to find a red scale,
and I also loved this little salt glaze jug.
This next item is an early salad dressing crock from England.
What I loved about this crock is that it was an advertising giveaway
from the early 1900's for a Children's shoe and doll store.
They featured Kider's, Rink, Boots and other Shoes.
Not sure what Kider's are, so if any of you know,
please let me know.
Tiny blue crock bowl
1/2 lb Hills Bros Coffee can
White American Family Scale
An Atlas jar on the left and root mason jar on the right.
Milk bottles with carrier and wood water bucket.
Flax Hetchel
A few goodies I kept for us...
really for me!
Bob don't care...he is the greatest!
I started collecting vintage Santa's.
Another coffee can to add to my collection too.
Finally these sweet little
My newest gotta have items when I see them.
I would like to do one of my bedrooms in early millinery finds.
Antique shoes will fit into my theme.
What do you like to collect?
Weekend Blessings To All!


  1. Fun finds, Janice! Hmmm, what don't I like to collect would be an easier question! LOL. I collect pedestal cake plates, charm for my charm bracelets, Desert Rose dishes, sewing notions, quilts and shoes (for me to wear!), just to name a few things!

  2. Sounds like a fun trip. I love all of your finds especially the vintage Santa.

  3. Wonderful finds, my friend! I love the salad dressing crock...what a fun time you must have had!

  4. Hi Janice, good for you, sounds like a great time.....Wow!!! Love your goodies too, adorable little shoes, I am a sucker for children's shoes, old tins, enamel ware, quilts, I could go on and on....Hugs Francine.

  5. Oh, my! Such wonderful scores! I love them all! Hmmm, I collect- yellowware, redware, and crocks (I usually get them chipped, from Goodwill, or eBay. That is the only way I can afford them!). I have kind of stopped collecting because I have enough. I still love them! I have started collecting pinkeeps, prim dolls, and spools of thread. I think that is what you mean by millinery? I love spools and bobbins! I used to collect transferware. I have a cute collection of tea plates of all colors and patterns. But, you reach a point when you just have to say no! I love every single goody you found! Rain just makes the trip interesting- it doesn't spoil the fun!

    Thank you for sharing all of these! I will be wiping up my droll and leaving now!

    Blessings and hugs!

  6. Sooooo many wonderful treasures you found!!!
    I really like those baby shoes ~ score!!!!
    I have a fetish for stools, wooden crates/boxes,unique glass jars & bottles, red handle kitchen ware and cookie cutters, Oh I could go on and on so many collections and not enough room!!!
    Prim Blessings
