A Hot Vintage Thingie Thursday

Another scorching, hot day in Texas. I am sure if you dropped by Coloradolady's Vintage show it will be cooler. Just go to http://coloradolady.blogspot.com and see what she and friends are sharing.
I go to many antique malls, garage sales and estate sales, but seldom buy anything. I found this little plate made in Occupied Japan at an estate sale. Just an old man running it and this was the only piece left. I was going to purchase since it was made in Occupied Japan. You do not find it much anymore. Since it was the last day, he just gave it to me. There are still a few good men around.

These are ribbed, pink depression glasses I have had for many years. As you can see, only have seven juice glasses and two water. They have no marking on them and I forgot the pattern.

Thought for the day:

Beware of spending too much time on matters of too little importance.

Lovin' your pretty new plate LV and the depression glass is great! Yep, I they are words to live by:@)

Ginny said...

What find and what a nice man! What will you do with the plate? But those glasses are really something else!! They remind me of the diner or soda fountain glasses, from the 40's or 50's. BUT I have never seen any in pink, only clear!! I bet these would fetch a pretty penny!

Two lovely bits of history! I'm rather partial to depression glass myself.

I could swear that courtly couple is the exact picture from a pair of maroon china urn-based lamps my Mammaw had.

Isn't it wonderful to meet such a kind stranger?

Hey LV, Thanks for commenting on my LeftOvers4Dinner Blog! It's a really neato Japanese bike, and it looks like you posted something from Japan as well, lol.
Thanks for checking out my new blog, I appreciate your comments you've posted in the past on my other Blog, Bender Oak Gifts too!

Take care,

Omi and Bender Oak

Thanks for visiting the birthday party. Hugs, Ginger

That plate is pretty, and must be rare by now. The pink glasses, I haven't seen them around here.

Rebecca said...

Nice man to give that neat plate to you-of course-I love the pink glasses!

Under Her Wings said...

I love the plate. I used to collect figurines from Occupied Japan for my daughter. And what a nice man to give you the plate! But I can imagine that people are drawn to your spunk and fun. You likely spun him into your web of kindness!

dogsmom said...

That must have been some sale that everything sold!

Usually I find sets of glasses in 5s or 7s. That gives me a reason to hunt for an extra glass or 3 and talk myself out of starting new collections.

George said...

The plate from Occupied Japan that you got is very pretty. You got a real bargain.

Oklahoma Granny said...

What a nice gentleman.

Marydon said...

Love those pink glasses & love FREE even more.

TY for you sweet wishes for the little church down our road. The congregation I am sure will rebuild. All that is left is the frame.

Have a wonderful week.
