Super-Duper-Find

Oh I am so excited, you know how I said that finally our GW has some neat things again, well, I found a couple of really super treasures.  Plus with it being Senior Day and I was already in the neighborhood, of course I had to pull in and take a look.


I am going to tease you for a minute, but this is my super, duper, duper find.  Wait just a minute and I will show you.  Everything was 25% off the marked price.



 More silver - - - -


 and still more.  Are you ready - - - - - - - -Drum Roll Please


All polished up, look at my great finds.


This is my super duper special find.  Can you believe this for $4.99, obviously they had no idea what they were doing.  Just put the two pieces together and tape them really good and stick a price on it.  I am thrilled, I think it is stunning.  This piece was so black I wasn't at all sure it would polish, but with a ton of elbow grease it is finally shiny.


 I love the little bowls too.  They are always so perfect for a ton of things.  Now I have 3 different sizes, small, medium and a large one I already had.


 I thought this was a fabulous treasure also.  I love beautiful decanters and I use to have a few, but I have no idea what happened to them.  This one is stunning.


 See the heavy carving on the sides and the bottom.  25% off the price marked - - - - - -


and since it is lead crystal by Towle, well worth it.  The stopper is beautifully carved also.  I found the same one online for $95.00.


All that for $18.70.  


I think they are wonderful finds and I can't wait to start playing.


Have you found some real treasures lately?

  19. love your finds!! My thrift store has decided to mark antique prices on everything. it's such a bummer.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wow! What a Bonanza! The GW here (CA) prices their pieces so much higher. There isn't a 'senior day', instead a 10% senior discount every day. That just covers the sales tax! Can you tell I'm envious?!

  23. Great finds! I saw one of the silver bowls at the Salvation Army a couple weeks ago, but didn't buy it because I already have one that someone gave me for our wedding 26 years ago! I love the pedestal!

  24. Marty those are some fantastic finds. You are the absolute best at finding things at GW. I can't wait to see you work your magic with these in one of your gorgeous vignettes.

  25. Woot. Well done Marty. I have found three of my cloches at GW.

  28. Lovin' your pretty new cloche Marty! Glad you were in the right spot at the right time-enjoy:@)

  29. Yay, YOU, Marty!! Those silver revere bowls are just beautiful, all polished up so pretty! I use mine for a horseradish/dill sauce when I serve any visitors prime rib. Right now, I've got a couple of nests sitting in 2 of them & jelly beans in the 3rd.

    Your decanter is lovely...of course, I'm partial to anything made in Poland, based on DH's heritage. *wink*
    I'm happy you found so many great keepers.

    fondly,

  33. Oh my gosh, did the cloche come with the silver pedestal piece, Marty? That is gorgeous! Love the decanter. The shape is unusual ~ usually I just see the squared off ones.

  34. Marty,
    What wonderful finds! I especially love your little silver and glass cloche! Can't wait to see what you do with that! Even a little cupcake would look like a feast rested upon this find!
