More Ebay Finds


Got this huge enamel ware metal bowl for an excellent price. I love this old Chinese enamel ware with the pretty shaded rims. They usually have pictures of roses or fruit in the middle. I actually had to restrain myself from tackling a guy at a thrift shop last week who grabbed one of these just as I was reaching for it! And it was PINK!

Another of my beloved Enesco Prayer Ladies. This one is a spoon holder and in great condition; these are usually chipped.


This gorgeous sign was painted by my talented friend, Shannon. Her ebay name is shannon*thompson. I just had to have this sign as "Pretty In Pink" is my ebay user name (and one of my favourite movies!)


A vintage Japanese honey or jam pot complete with spoon.


This gorgeous Royal Vale cup to match a saucer that I already have. Now to find the plate!

  6. peta,
    Got yourself some good stuff since I was here last. Love it all. I think I have that same cup but no saucer. So see there must be hope because you found a saucer maybe I will.

  7. Lisa-Gabrielle, what a lovely name! Thanks for offering to be my offense team. That dude was the offense team for his girlfriend. He was following me around while she was pushing ahead getting all the best bits! How cheeky is that?
    Niki, what a generous offer! Just let me know if there is anything I can keep an eye out for you for.
    Thanks Amy, Victoria and Nancy Jo for the lovely comments :)

  10. Hello there, I just bought a vintage jam pot almost exactly like yours, except it has the word "JAM" painted on the front. What I wanted to ask was, do you think it's a boy or a girl?! It's certainly pretty like a girl, with rosy cheeks and pink lips, but it appears to be wearing really baggy trousers!
