On Friday, Hubby and I went to "The Village", as I had a 30% off our entire purchase coupon to use.
I adopted a couple of items; two "kitschy" and two blue.
First the Kitsch. When I spotted one of these two salt and pepper shakers, I thought it was a lone dog figurine... turning it around, I was pleased to see it was in fact an old shaker. So the hunt was on for it's mate. I found it hiding in another area tucked behind some kitchenware. Naughty, naughty little one.
Upon closer inspection, I revised my first impression - with the two holes on each side of the nose, it looks like whiskers once were glued there.... so they are in fact kittens, not pups! Awesome!
Even better, they are Japanese:
They may not be in perfect condition, but who can resist such a sweet face at $1.40 for the pair?
I also found a great blue transferware plate in great condition for $2.09:
Speaking of blue, I also discovered one more piece to my Cobalt Blue collection (the bowl on the far left of this photo). With my 30% discount, this latest piece was a mere 70 cents.
It's an "accidental" collection - I don't go out looking for them, but if they're cheap, I'll pick them up. I love the way they glow in the sunlight.
Do you have any "accidental collections"?
