Gentle Friends as usual over the weekend we did our shopping and hit some of the regular shops and even a couple of Estate Sales. Here in SF there are quite a few Antique Shops, and there used to be a few Antique Malls. Now, we have only two smallish Antique Malls left, I guess the high prices for store space has driven them out of the city. With all that build up here's the few treasures I brought home....
... I picked up a couple of DVD's at the Goodwill, how could I go on without the Simpson's "Christmas 2" and a "Bugs Life" is a cute little film from Pixar. The early 19th century teacup I found at a thrift shop marked $1.70, they were having a 1/2 price sale and got it for less than 1/2... .75 cents. I was stunned, but happy. I picked up the sterling dish at the Antique mall along with the demitasse spoon. Both the bowl and spoon were made by Whiting. The bowl is in the Poppy Pattern and the spoon is Heraldic. The spoon is also a souvenir spoon from a college in Kentucky I have never heard of, but I collect his pattern and it is rare to see it anywhere.
That's about it for today sports fans. Thanks for stopping by do stop again....... 4 more sleeps!!
