Recent Finds...

Vintage TV antenna. Sorry for the crummy picture. It isn't in too bad of shape. Not sure that I could actually get it to work. But it is a nice display item. Needs a bit of cleaning up. We were watching the 2nd season of Mad Men and there is one just like it on top of Harry Crane's TV. I paid 3 bucks or so for it at a flea market.
This ice crusher was something that I always wanted but never found a good one for a good price. This one is in pretty good condition and it was free. Another find from Mrs. J. There is a small amount of pitting in the chrome top but I can't complain.


The large red and white butter dish was a gift to Molly from her sister. We found the other container up north. I'm calling it a sugar bowl because we don't know what it is. It does have a handle on the back. Not really sure. The bottom of the "sugar bowl" has the Jiffy Ware logo stamp on it. I'm not quite sure that the butter dish is from the same company but it makes a nice set. Molly paid a few bucks for it so it wasn't a bad deal.

This ball pitcher was another gift from Mrs. J. She actually had two of these but we couldn't justify taking both. What the heck are we going to do with two? This one is in real nice shape. The other had a chip in the spout so this was the winner.

Wonderful finds!! Not sure what I'm seeing witht he red and white pieces -- is the red supposed to look like a strap?

That's a great TV antenna. A relative gave us one like it and we have it proudly displayed on top of our Magnavox. I noticed the same model in an episode of The Honeymooners.

The antenna is a nice find, but since the Digital Conversion back in June, it won't work no matter how hard you try.

Mrs. Cozy Home,

Sort of a strap or kinda like a art deco "spear". It has ribs on it and ribs around the body of both of the pieces.
