Antiquing in Bobcaygeon

Well a beautiful hot day... So we took to the roads in our 49 p/u and went to River Rock Antiques, Bobcaygeon,Ontario.
I made sure I brought my camera and took many  pictures so you could see the candy...
Walls of china, furniture primitive and traditional. Lamps etc.  you get the picture..
Well I stumbled into this room and there were these boxes that china was wrapped up in paper.
Sooo of course I started to unravel and came upon these blue striped dishes...  A sugar bowl with no lid and salt and pepper shakers.  I turned them over to see their markings and they were Carrigaline Pottery republic of Ireland. Hmmmmm.
There was also another barn to go through. Upon entering was this cute car... Oh Mr. dh we need this....

Do you think you could restore it?   I really loved the look of this pottery in turquoise.
Soooo you wanna know what I bought......
We got  into our vehicles and drove to the famous ICE CREAM Store in the Kawarthas... No other than Kawartha Dairy.  The lineup wasn't too bad.

So here's my purchases.... blue striped salt and pepper shakers and the sugar bowl less one lid. for $15.
The 1985 Classic Convertible made by Power Wheels Pines of America.$40.00  They sold the business to  Mattel in 1994.
Mr dh is going to restore this little gem.. missing a battery and needs wiring.
