Fire King Finds

Friday might be my favorite day of the week. They're always full of morning coffee with my Pop and then garage sale hunting! Today was no exception.

We headed off to our first sale - the garage was just beginning to rise. Pop's number one rule: Be early! I immediately headed to the table in the back lined with dishes. Wait - could that

Yes! Jadeite! I've longed over jadeite for so very long. And now it's mine! And for just $2 for the lot of it! (Creamer, 4 pie plates, & 3 saucers) Also picked up some other goodies:

Pink swirl Fire King dinner plate with matching teacup, for my dear pink-obsessed Ace (momma!) I'm keeping the 1950's retro pink plastic cookie jar, though. Ah-dorable. And at less than a dollar for all three of these treasures, how could I say no?

Off to another sale! And, oh boy, was it a great one.

I got both of these beauties for $1! Oh my, how I love elderly ladies' garage sales. I've seen the white divided candy dish before, but I've never seen anything like this casserole dish! Take a closer look...

Isn't it just lovely?! Clear glass covered in golden specks with a beautiful teal medallion resting on top...just beautiful. Has anyone else ever seen this piece before?

Picked up one more retro goodie for my brother, the vintage-radio collector:

High-five for great finds!
