We went to the Spring Garden Indoor Flea Market on Saturday. First junking day for me since early December. Mr. VJIMT has gone a couple of times this winter, but my schedule has not allowed for it. Until today.
It's small, with lots of smalls, but we got some good stuff!
(not this water buffalo)
Mr. VJIMT bought some lantern slides. He has a project in mind.
I bought a few vintage target practice sheets. I have a project in mind.
I also got this gorgeous lot of Mulberry transferware (Rose) by Edward Challinor that dates from 1842 to 1867.
The lot included 6 large saucers/bowls and 4 handleless cups.
One plate had a chip on the underside (mine!); the others were in great vintage condition with lots of crazing.
One of the cups has a couple of chips, and another was repaired and pretty unusable; I kept both and am thinking of making some mosaic jewelry with the broken one.
The others were listed and sold likethat. The woman who purchased them must have had an alert set to "Mulberry Transferware Rose Challinor" because they were literally active for only a few minutes. I'm glad they went to a good home!
Speaking of a good home, I cannot think of a better home than MY HOUSE for this gorgeous typewriter. The first one of the 2014 season!
As usually happens, Mr. VJIMT and I asked separately about this beauty, then met up to compare notes and knocked each other down racing strolled back to buy it.
The curvy top!
The red keys!
I don't think I can part with it. At least for a little while. We may need to rethink our display options in this house.
