I’ve seen this idea on a few other blogs and thought it was a great one! It’s nice to look back over the year and see some of the highlights in the hunt for vintage!
1) Finel Enamel Bowls Let’s start off at the beginning of 2014 with a fun find that made me so happy! 🙂 It doesn’t take much, lol. This Finel Hearts bowl was right in the middle of a Valentine’s Day display at Goodwill. I had kind of hoped that would happen someday and it did! Speaking of Finel enamel bowls, later in the year I found the second one at a yard sale. I didn’t recognize it but it felt the same as the Hearts bowl. I brought it home and had it confirmed as a more rare pattern of Finel and it sold the same day.
3) Arabia of Finland Breakfast Cup and Saucer It’s no secret that I love my Scandinavian finds! I was at Value Village and still a ways away from the coffee mug aisle but I could see this set like there was a halo around it! I just KNEW it was something. And I was right. Arabia of Finland. Never found a pattern name, but it didn’t matter. Collectors know what they’re looking for and what they like.
4) Pink Poodle Tissue Box Holder Not a terribly valuable one, but fun! I mean, where else could you find something like this? Gotta love the internet. The buyer for this was a therapist and was going to use it in her office. She later told me that all her clients comment on it. Love it!
