Unbelievable finds today! (Only 2 but well worth it!)

So today was a pretty interesting day. I woke up at 6:30am due to my dad telling me there was a rummage sale at my local college. I stumbled out of bed and made my way to the shower still half asleep and almost fell like 3 times. When I finished up my shower and was about to leave my dad said it was about to rain, and sure enough it did! It was a heavy downpour. It brings a whole new meaning to "Raining Cats and Dogs." I literally felt like I was driving through a category 5 hurricane. There was lots of wind and I couldn't see 300ft in front of me due to the insane amounts of rain. Anyways, I made it there and I found something amazing! I've never seen one before and I cant find one on the internet anywhere! I knew I had to get it when I saw it. Hit the Jump for more pictures and the second half of the story!

This is the item I purchased at the rummage sale. It is what appears to me a Salem North Star display dish or Salesman Sample! This thing is really small. I also love how it says "Now Only 9¢" on it. I can't believe I found this little gem. I have taken its picture next to a regular North star side plate to demonstrate how small this thing is. It measures 3.5" across and the Side plate is 7.25" across. I think its funny how this is one of the first few North Star dishes that I have bought and it appears to be pretty rare! If you have any more info on this please leave it in the comments! I bought this small dish with 4 other random dishes for 50¢ and I didn't want the other dishes so I went to drop them off at the local Salvation army!



Little did I know that when I went into the Salvation Army that I would find the Hairpin End Table that I saw in there the other day. I thought this thing was gone! Apparently someone had moved it to the other side of the furniture section and I must have over looked it when I went back to get it before. I can't believe it was still there. I knew I had to get it! I knew I had no space for it but I will find some space somewhere. I may sell it but who knows. I love it. But I have to remember to not get too emotionally attached to things :P




  1. Beautiful blog! I found you on a blogging message board and the vintage part stood out.

  2. whoo hoo good deal! Keep it or sell those legs and buy more stuff!!

  3. Sometimes it's worth driving through hurricane type rain for a great score.

  4. Kristin - Well thanks for following my blog! I greatly appreciate it!

    1950s_Atomic - Its tough deciding whether or not to sell it! I really kinda like those legs! I could re-purpose them for something but idk... I'm sure I will figure out something to do with them!

    Krazy4Mod - Heck yes it is! I will drive through a hurricane any day of the week to get a good deal!
