Saturday Auction - The Finds

Shabby Junk, Debbie and Ginger were so right about my new kids - aren't they the sweetest? 

Only Tamara guessed the other one...the crow!  I fell for him head over heels! He'll be decked out for Halloween and make his first appearance at Junk Bonanza.

The tiddly-winks game was really charming but someone else loved it waaaaaaay more than I did, so it did not come home with me.  I did however get this wonderful circa 1925 "portable office typewriter". It needs a cleaning and a ribbon; I'll be taking it in for that this week. I've had a hankering to type lately.

Who can resist a baby ring?  
(This one is now available on etsy.)

Some random silverplate pieces are now mine...

...and the creaminess of this circa 1880s stag pattern brown transferware won me over.
 I just love a good auction!


  1. Hi Jan, I loved that crow, so glad it was one of the items that you did buy, and the mannequins were also my fav. Fabulous! The transferware is also wonderful, Tamara x

  2. Well I can stand up to being terribly wrong! olive;(

  3. Great finds, Jan~ oh I love those mannequin heads!

  4. Ah, you are so right, nothing better than a good auction!!! Just ask "her" ;)

    Purrsonally, I love the crow - he will be purrfect for Halloween! And "she" wants me to tell you "her" favorite is the stag transferware! Never seen that pattern before! Looks like you did very well AND had a good time!

    I hope you have a great holiday weekend!
