I have picked up some fun things here and there in the last few months at the thrift stores….recently I picked up a Bisquick cook book that showed their history; there are some old ad photos and facts such as these interspersed throughout the book :
I tried one or two of the recipes ( not ‘ all that’ : ) and sent it home with the DIL to look over.
There are things that I took down to my space at Vintage Secrets:
I was in a hurry to get my half-room stocked up there and really couldn’t take the time to show much individually.
One item that I did take product shots of for Etsy, but took down to that space instead, was this Hall’s China Teapot; isn’t it lovely!
This was only the second piece of Hall’s China that I’d ever purchased…the first one was a beautiful coffee pot in an aqua shade ( it is in THIS POST. )
This next teapot is one that I want to enjoy for awhile prior to listing on Etsy or taking to my space at Vintage Secrets…it’s a Sadler teapot made in England:
When I Googled Sadler teapots I discovered that there is even a Sadler Facebook Fan page for these teapots ( HERE ) and I can understand why.
I picked up this little reader, though I don’t think that it is actually all that old…
It has intriqued my first-grader grandson, though…so it won’t be listed anywhere until he gets to explore it with me here first.
Meanwhile the bitter cold continues..it seems that there is no end to it. It is -3 now and will be far worse in the morning, meaning another school delay or cancellation. ( Between snow and temps, there was only one day of school last week. )
