As I was photographing this week's finds, I decided I need to buy stock in a bubble wrap company because when we finally move, I'm going to need a TON of it to wrap all my pottery! LOL
Oh well...that won't stop me from bringing home things like this!
Two long planters...the yellow one is USA pottery and will join my little growing collection of warm yellow pottery! It's got a neat basketweave pattern. It was .79. And the RED one...well....what can I say...it was RED! And had wonderful color! It says it's from Lake Oswego, Oregon. It was 3.79, so I thought it needed to come home and adorn bookshelves....or perhaps find a place in my quilt den!
Then there was this 2.00 find.
I don't know what drew me to it...the color? the old pottery feel? It's from Japan and is definitely a different type of pottery....great shape. Almost feels like chalkware, but I don't think it is.
Anyone have any info about it?
And then...there was this fellow.
I spied him across the store. He was 'behind the counter', so that meant 'pricey' as far as a thrift store goes. $29. I left him....I walked OUT of the store....I put my purchases in the car. I couldn't stop thinking about him. No marks, but there was just something that kept digging at me.
So I went back in...shelled out the $29 and brought this home.
Isn't it wonderful? It's in excellent condition...nary a chip or crack! And once I started investigating online....I believe this is a piece of McCoy pottery. I love him and his bird-chicken-quirkiness!
Did you find anything special as of late? Would love to hear about it!
