More Vintage Finds

Just a few items I purchased recently!
I can't think of a single time when I used an ice bucket, but this heavy glass and silver plated lid bucket needed a home. Specifically, mine! I purchased it at my favorite local thrift store a few days ago. I'm sure it will be repurposed when I need a pretty container.
I couldn't pass up this silver plated feline ring holder from a local thrift store! I immediately thought of it as a little gift for my sister who loves cats more than me.
I've had my eyes on this vintage wrought iron and glass desk for about a month. I saw it at the antique mall where I have a space (previous post.) This particular vendor has several "chippey" pieces that I love.I have the perfect spot for this piece at the end of my desk. It provides two levels of storage for paper, bills, pencils, and more. It's not solid or bulky so it's perfect for my small office space. On the top is a vintage letter sorter. I purchased this one and two others at a nearby antique store. I'm sharing the other two on my website shortly.
I LOVE silver plated servers! I purchased these two at thrift stores nearby. I'm thinking about serving a warm crab and artichoke dip in one and meatballs in the other at my next gathering.
I found these vintage glass percolator tops at a shop in Camarillo called, Homespun. Wendy from Pink Slippers told me I wouldn't be disappointed if I visited this charming shop. Thanks, Wendy, you were right! Last night I purchased 16 more on eBay. I now have a collection! I have an idea about how to use these which I will share in a later post.

Thanks for stopping by!

My mom has a vintage ice bucket, and sometimes she makes salads in it (like lime salad) and they look so pretty!!

hmmm, salad-that is a great idea!
Ya, business has slowed down-it is holding its own -not the crazy busy of the previous summer. My timing for expansion may not be soo good, we'll see.
