Thrifting at Gull Lake

Wow what a great day it was yesterday.
Beautiful weather to be out and about.
So while out touring in this

we came across Gull lake trading.
Oh they had a dollar tent.   Oh I was so excited.. That's my kind of shopping.
Here are my finds out of the $ tent.
A silver plated toast rack $1.00
 I little elbow grease and some silver cleaner this will be a gem.
I might use it in the office for my mail. I compared this with one on ebay $40.
ART DECO Sterling Silver Toast Rack made by Cooper Brothers & Sons, Sheffield 1931 So I scored...

A silver plated tray $1.00

YIPEE!! You thought I won the jackpot.
So inside the barn we go.  Oh sorry gals I forgot my camera....

Came home with this Hobnail pink vase or it could be a light globe.$5.00

It doesn't matter to me what it is I like the pink... New bathroom reno in the works???

This cute bowl and plate. Reminds me of chinese cabbage $5.00
Could be an antique  Majolica dish.

So all in all we had a great day out thrifting and touring.
How was your weekend?
