MY WEEKEND FINDS-Fire King And Jadeite, Oh My!

Thanks for tuning in to another episode of My Weekend Finds, the continuing saga of one girl's quest for more junk!
When I stop in at our local Goodwill, I always try to have very low expectations. That way, on the rare occasion that I actually do find something good, I am pleasantly surprised!
Case in point: The other day I stopped in, and it was as if a beam of light was emanating from these Fire King mugs. I could have spotted them a mile away!
I also found TWO of these old mug holders.
I ask you: Who doesn't need extra cupboard space?!
I couldn't resist these little bowls, which are just perfect for a little fruity snack. I remember my Mom had coffee cups with those same pink flowers on them, but she assures me that those cups are long gone. Darn!
I now have two of these jadeite reamers, and I'm that much closer to having an actual collection. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade! Not really though, because you know that if you touch your daughter's lemons that she bought with her very own money, there will be trouble....
And last, these four Fire King plates, all taped together with a $2.99 price tag on them. Don't they know that I would have paid much more for them?!
Oh Fire King, I've been so misguided and sold many pieces of you, but you always come back and give me another chance. Fire King, this time you're for keeps!

Oh! Lucky you! My mom had cups like that! They are on my wish list! I always forget about them though because I only see them online. Maybe I'll find some at the Farm Chicks show. ♥

I just found your blog, and I am your newest follower. I love it! I looked at your profile briefly and wow, I am a domestic goddess too, so I had to join! I love your finds antiquing this weekend, and I did the same thing. See, spooky, we are alike! I really found some great things too. I'm excited for both of us!
It's so nice to meet you! I'm looking forward to having some time to go through your blog.

Oh...My...Goodness. Jadite at a thrift store? Not in any place here. If there were, they would of been snatched before being set out. I have never found anything close to that good at a thrift store.
I LOVE those cup holders. I would of had to have those, too!
I am so glad for you for finding some great bargins!!

I shopped at 5 Goodwills this weekend (as it was 50% off all day Saturday) and I'm so jealous you found those, and I didn't! But I did score some other good stuff!! :)

Wow! What a great score! I was searching for Jadeite for my sister for Christmas and was blown away by the huge price tags! And I absolutely LOVE that mug holder!

Blessings

GREAT finds!! Our Goodwill would NEVER have jadeite. They put them online for auction. I have found a few gems in the past, but never anything like Jadeite!!! Great score!

That's one boatload of Jadeite! Now that you know what it's like to live without it, don't ever let that happen again! (Two of those reamers? Seriously?)

Andy's Attic said...

What a DEAL!! Our GW would charge more than an antique store for those. I think the mug holders are just wonderful.

Just passing through the internet looking at Fireking Jadeite and was directed to your weekend finds. Just wanted to let you know that if your jadeite reamer is Fireking, it is probably considered to be a grapefruit reamer with the larger ribs and according to my Kovels' book, it is probably worth $400. If so, what a find! Hope this is makes you smile even more!
