Red Transferware


Hi everyone! I'm just popping in for a quick post today. My husband is having some emergency dental work done and I'm in between car trips. What a crazy day! I had some time to kill so I went to the thrift store (where else!). But I'm glad I did!


Most of you know I collect red transferware. I have a lot of plates but I only have 3 cups. So what do I see at the thriftstore....



Cups!! they were only 35 cents each! I think I squealed when I saw them. There were 6 but I only took 4 and left 2 for some other lucky person.



I also got two brand new Bonne Maman jars for when I try to make some jelly this summer and also 3 new Ball Jars


and this...



What is it? I know I've seen them somewhere - something electrical - conduit cover... something like that? Anyway, it looked neat. Like a little cloche.



This white embossed creamer - it's Royal Stafford. Love it! That'll go in my black cabinet.

Not bad for 15 minutes! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are ready for a great week ahead. I'll be back tomorrow!

That white embossed creamer is a great find. I love the red transferware I have a few of it.
Went to classy flea yesterday and the parson chairs my mother found on Tuesday sold on Sat afternoon. Sad as she was going to buy them for me. I did find an old window for $3.50 and was happy as I always see them for $40.00.

Love the cups and what a bargain! I'm looking for some to make candles out of - wish I could have been the lucky one to pick up the remaining two!

Vee said...

Thirty-five cents? That's just nuts. LOL!

Hope that your hubby gets everything straightened around...nothing worse than needing emergency dental care.

Shilo said...

You are too sweet to think to leave two for some other lucky person. :)

Adrienne said...

Oh, you've done it again! Found such treasures. Isn't it fun to find missing pieces and add them to your collection? I love the white pitcher and your transferware is always gorgeous. So nice you found each of the wonderful things in one stop. And in such a short time. Take good care of your hubby while he recuperates. ~Adrienne~

What great buys on those cups!! I love Bonne Maman jelly. I buy it and save the jars. They are great to fill with buttons, paper clips etc....
Hugs,

What a fantastic and quick deal!!!!
It always pays to stop off when you have a hunch!!!
Hope your Hubby is on the mend!!
Have a Blessed WEEK!

Vintage Girl at Heart said...

I am going to have to unpack my transferware and enjoy it!!

Karen said...

GIRL! You always just happen upon the best treasures! Had there been anything like that here, it would've gone for probably $5 each.
I went to an antique mall yesterday (trust me, I didn't think So Cal had any!) and do you think there was a single solitary piece of red or pink transfer? Nope! A cloche? Nope. I did find a cute little quilt though, so the day was not a total waste.
I think I need to move to GA!!!!!!
Hope hubby does well!! Hugs. Karen

If you could have heard me when I saw that first picture!!! Oh my lands, girl, did you ever find a great deal!!! Wahoo! Congrats!

The fav. of mine might be the cream pitcher, but the red transferware is a close second.

Melissa Wertz said...

Oh Kewl! I am coming to Hotlanta for thrift store shopping.

Patti Cakes said...

These are lovely. I can never find anything like this without paying an arm and a leg.

Yes I like the other version of S&S as well. I got DVD in a set along with the Remains Of The Day.

Miss Potter comes on in about 10 minutes. I watch it over and over again as well.

Dot said...

I collect Red Transferware, but I'm a new collector so I have very little at this time. I can't wait for garage sale season!

Sher's Creative Expressions said...

Oh yes, I just saw those electrical things in a magazine a few months ago. I think they are electrical conductors, or transformers. I think will probably end up to be pretty valueable.

Love your red transferware. Good day thrifting I'd say. . . you lucky lady you!

Blessings,

Sher

Mimi Sue said...

GREAT stuff. Good job. You're so nice to leave some for another fortunate person. Mimi

Kimm at Reinvented said...

Wow, you scored! I went thrifting today too, and came home empty handed. That doesn't happen very often, but I was disappointed.

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Amanda @ Morning Glory Cottage said...

What a great deal you got! Lucky you. I finished your piece this weekend and will have it in the mail soon. Take care.
Love Amanda

Lady Katherine said...

Oh, I love it! Now go back and get the cups and let me be that lucky person! Love the jars! I love Smuckers Strawberry Perserves, I started keeping them, for I hope to do a lot of figs perserves and pear perserves. I would love to make blueberry syrup, anyone know how? My four plum trees died, hubby cut them back too far! Had them for years, and the plums were big as a golf ball. I think I have a creamer similar, I need go look and see if its marked.
The bell looks like the old ones they used to wrap the wire on, on the telephone poles. The oldest I think are a blue-green color. Hope Hubby doing good, if he needs to go back to the denist, think of me, I will send you shipping in a heart beat!

How big is the glass thingie? Could it possibly be a smoke spreader for an oil lamp?
