(I CANNOT BELIEVE I actually came away with this lunch box!!!)
Any who, I saw this Happy Days Lunch box in the sales preview pictures and decided that I had to have it. (I played "Ralph Malph" in my very first show at Wichita Theatre!) So Patricia and I got to the sale an hour early, we were 3rd in line, and when they finally took down the tape it was a mad dash to the display case that this was in. One of the ladies running the sale told me "Now, you need to know these are the more pricy lunch pails..." I had anticipated this, and was prepared to pay high dollar. The only other Happy Days Lunch box I've seen in real life was a the Bowie Flea Market for $100.00. So after victoriously snatching the box, I look at the price tag and had to cope with the steep, back breaking price of $20.00!!! It was wonderful!
(It is perfect for my Libbey Carousel glasses!)
Lastly there was this box of Blain hand painted dishes for $15.00. I need another mixed set of dishes like I need a hole in the head, but I'm sure I'll use them somewhere! Most of the "good" pieces were there...
(6 dinner plates)
(4 salad plates, and 4 cups)
(The matching tea pot)
(A small bread bowl, and the salt and pepper!)
(I love they way they sit together.)
This set cleaned up rather nicely, and I'm glad I picked it up a the sale, vs buying it at a double price from a dealer. As I said I'll use it someday, I could have a thousand different kitchens! haha
Recently, (as in part 1 of this estate sale 2 weeks again) I have become enamored with "wall pocket" pottery. Ya know little planters that thank on the wall! I saw this one the first week and was to stingy to shell out $3.00, but with it still being there this week I gladly brought it home. No i just have to find a place for it... haha im reaching maximum capacity!
(The lunch box in it's new habitat.
Chilling with the Batman and Bonanza Lunch boxes.)
It has been a great dirty sale, and there is still lots of treasure to be found and I cant wait to go digging again soon!
Hope all of you had some happy hunting!
