Last Thursday afternoon a friend, Diana and I took a trip to Star Mill Antiques. The owner is selling the property and having weekly sales. I am so sad to say ‘farewell’ to this fun place to find treasures.
I found some fantastic bargains.
He had an area where everything was priced $1.
3 fun milk bottles for $1 each. I have a milk crate that they will fit perfectly in. Love the red graphics!
I loved these little milk glass stemware. I think they will make cute egg cups. I’m sure that’s not what they are used for. Each one is a little different. I think if I put a bit of moss inside the egg will fit. Again, $1 each.
My last $1 finds were a couple of turquoise bottles. This gal loves her turquoise!
I swooned when I spied this large aqua glass bottom bowl in pristine condition. A steal for $6.
I also picked up a few funky items. I was hoping that the bottle stoppers would fit my milk bottles, but they were the wrong size. Still good, 50 cents for all 4.
How about this vintage light set for $2. I think they’ll be cute displayed in a jar.
This was probably my favorite bizarre purchase. An umbrella skeleton for $5.
The possibilities are endless with this piece.
You could put it in the garden and plant a vine to grow up it. But for now I’m thinking it would be so fun to put it in a pot and hang Christmas cards and trinkets from it for the holidays.
Treasure hunting on Thursday just left me in the mood for more. So my cousin, Betty and I went galavanting. My hubby had gone fishing and hers was hunting. It was raining so working in the yard was out. What else is a girl to do?
On Friday we headed South and hit a thrift store.
I found the yellow Pyrex bowl for $2.99. The black one I bought at Savers on Sat. for the same price. I have 3 pink teacups so I was excited to find a 4th to match along with a cute pink bowl. Both for $1 ea.
It’s hard to see, but this bottle has the words Hinds Honey and Almond Cream.
Friday was so much fun that we decided to do it again Saturday. This time we headed North. I rarely get to go roaming with my cousin.
If you know me then you know that I love anything that has to do with cherries. This was at a consignment thrift shop for $8. Love, love it!
I loved this old stamp holder! A little more money at $10. Still too fun to not buy.
Our last stop was at a Savers store. $2 for a red bubble glass. I have one just like it, so now I have a pair. I even managed to fit it into my green cabinet.
I got the two poppy plates for $1 ea. Don’t ask me why it looks like they have orange on them. They don’t, they are entirely red with a green center. I have an assortment of poppy dishes that I display in May when my Poppies are in bloom. I actually picked up the green frog on Friday at an antique store called, Brambles. It now holds an old photo.
Not bad for a weekend of galavanting fun, ya think?
