I found the miniature Radio Flyer wagon at the thrift store. It was only $5 and so sweet. I wasn't sure if I was going to get it out of the store as everyone that saw it in my arms wanted it too! I hung on tightly! Then, when we went to the estate sale several days later, my mother-in-law spied this matching Radio Flyer scooter and knew I had to get it. $4! A steal in my book! One more Radio Flyer piece and I will officially become a collector, right?
You can see the scale of them in relation to the silver plate teapot. Oh, the silver plate teapot! That came from Goodwill! It was marked at $9.99 but it was 50% off so, $4.50!
This what it looked like when I bought it. Pretty tarnished for sure!
I love the intricate details like the flower on the handle.
By placing it in with some tinfoil, baking soda and boiling water I was able to get most of the tarnish off.
I then used some of this silver polish to finish the job.
I used the same cleaning method on these silver plated cream & sugars I got at the estate sale for $1 each!
Now, I have a beautiful, shiny, silver plate tea set.
I have always wanted a aluminum cake holder so when I saw this one at the estate sale I grabbed it. $2! I already have plans to strip the paint off. I'll see how it looks without it and then decide if I want to repaint it. I'm thinking maybe a sunny yellow? What do you think?
Now, for my favorite find of the week! I left this teaser photo on my facebook page. Any guesses?
Those are bakelite handles on this 1930's Bersted toaster! I would have totally missed it if my mother-in-law hadn't spied it and showed it to me! It doesn't have a power cord but at $5 I grabbed it anyway!
Love the art deco design of the handles!It is in really good shape and after my mother-in-law finished cleaning it up, it is beautiful!
I am now on the hunt for a cord as I really think it will actually toast bread!
So, there are my finds for the week! I think I found some really unique and fun collectibles! Some may make it into a tablescape or vignette. How about you? Have you been out thrifting lately? Show me what you found in the comments below!
