I’ve been wanting a Harker Hotoven rolling pin for a long time and finally found one at an antique store in Lebanon, Ohio, for a reasonable price.
When I got it home, I realize I already had a pie plate in the same pattern. It is quite discolored and crazed, which I don’t mind. It shows that it has been used to bake a lot of pies. My daughter found the rack at a thrift store for $4 and it’s perfect for displaying the two pieces.
Today, we visited a local thrift store and found a Universal water bottle with a beautiful marigold pattern. I love these vintage patterns for china and pottery.
I also found a lovely pale pink and green Hull vase which is perfect for displaying while I’m waiting for spring to arrive.
These two items were only $15 each – a bargain even with a few imperfections.
To add to a week of very nice collectibles, my daughter gave me this darling 2-inch high pitcher for St. Patrick’s Day.
It was a very good week for collectibles.
