While running some errands on Friday after yoga made us get out of the house at the unearthly hour of 7:45 AM, we made a stop at the tiny Hope Mission Thrift Store. While the kids played in the toy section, I looked for treasures. I didn't realise until I got home that all my treasures are the same colour!
I found a pretty teal book, The White and the Gold by Thomas B. Costain, published in 1954. I rarely buy non-fiction vintage books, but this one was too pretty to pass up. I probably won't keep the dust jacket. I may even read it one day! I like history...but I like pretty vintage books even better!
I also found a little cream jug. I have no idea whether it's ceramic, porcelain, or ironstone, and it has no markings. I needed a bigger creamer that would coordinate with my sugar bowl, since my little cow creamer is too tiny to use for more than two people, as adorable/creepy as it is. This one is the perfect size. And it's the third jug I've found at this particular thrift store! See the others here and here.
The teal transferware plate is an antique. I'm pretty sure of it anyway, based on the design of the marking on the bottom. But it's too worn, and I can't make out anything to determine the company that made it, or its age. Do you recognise the logo? I'll have to spend some time checking. This plate was on the high side of what I usually pay for my treasures at this store: $4.99. The cream jug was $0.99, and the book was $1.99.
