Things are picking up in estate sale land and that makes this cherry picker very happy. However, the funds are on a trickle right now with sales in the booth and online down. It is typical this time of year for sales to be slow but usually there is not a lot to buy either.
I picked up a few neat things lately. This Coca-cola bottle carrier was something I thought was interesting. I have never seen anything like it. It came out of a really old collection but I'm not sure if this is a reproduction or what. I thought it was worth the gamble but have still not found any information on it. I guess I will hang on to it until I can find something out about it.
I also found this LP jute type bag/backpack. It says music collection but again I don't know how old it is or anything. I just thought it was interesting.
One thing I do know a lot about is Pyrex. I was able to score this 404 Aqua bowl from the swap meet last week. I saw it sitting on a table several yards away and made a beeline for the bowl. However, I intentionally made myself pick up something else next to it and examine it closely. Knowing I was not interested in anything but the aqua bowl! Containing my excitement paid off when I casually gestured to the bowl and asked how much is the light blue bowl. The seller spit out a higher than expected figure but I kept my cool and I was able to negotiate a fair price. It is now listed here https://www.etsy.com/listing/224661382/vintage-pyrex-turquoise-aqua-blue-404?ref=shop_home_active_1 in my etsy shop. However, it is available for trade too if you have something I want or need. For example, the Spring Blossom Lasagna pan or the 441 friendship are just a few of the pieces I'm looking for.
I hope everyone had a great weekend and welcome to March everybody!
