    Maybe we can have an on-going finds thread here instead of a weekly one. If it gets too unwieldly, we can start a new one or go to a different format. Finds do not need to be antique.

    Show us what you found!

    Have been really busy of late but have some things to show once I get to taking some pictures. For now, here is a thrift store find. The vase is by Denver artist Deborah Dell. Pic is from her website but my vase is this exact one based on unique features compared.

    Lovely vase!

    I posted a new thread about one of my finds that is not impressive or antique, but is milk glass...

    So, here is something else. This photo is very obviously from the early 20th century. I love the "over the top" hats!

    I haven't seen much 'antique' worth buying lately.
    This shaker was black. $4.00 at an estate sale.

    This Aksel Holmsen spoon was a quarter at a garage sale of a former antique dealer. Someone forgot to stamp it.

    The hotel emblems on these are hard to see. It was a popular Minneapolis hotel that was demolished in the 1970s.

    Not antique. No great value. Too charming to pass up.

    Such nice finds!

    I've been laid up the last few months on crutches and can't drive so I've not been able to get out much. I did get to one auction and while these aren't the best of what came back, they are what they are.

    A big tin doll house and a faux antique phone. DD just rented an apartment in an old house so the phone is going there. Tin house is too big to bother with online so it's going to the flea when I can get around.

    Brad, that vase is amazing! Would love to see how it was constructed and fired.
    cxgirl, I have the same style fir doors throughout our house. Ours have a clear coat over the natural wood color.

    That looks like one of those "wiccan" necklaces,Mymysharona. That English silver shaker is pretty nice too.
