Even though the Post Office has announced they are probably going to raise our rates in January, I personally felt that there was something MORE that I could do to help them out. As you will remember, I'm also helping my vet save up for his kids' college education AND I'm keeping eBay afloat, as well. So I randomly drew four more names from the list of poor souls who wanted the Fenton vase but didn't win it, and here they are:
1972 Peace & Freedom Party button
70's Yellow crackle double ball earrings by Trifari. These MAY glow in the dark!
(And no, you can't have the fabric in the rear. It's actually a blender cover keeping Mom's Mixmaster safe and sound!)
Vintage pink kittycat figurine
Vintage gold twisty circle pin with faux pearls
Vintage gold earrings with crystal rhinestones
Christine (the Okie from Muskogee)
Boyd Art Glass handpainted"Willie The Mouse" in Classic Black Carnival--purchased by yours truly at their factory in Cambridge, Ohio
Barbara in Cali
An orange Fire King coffee cup for your morning cuppa, and a pin that says it all. My mom was one, too.
Now don't get all excited by the next photo. No one won this--I'm just showing it off! It's a beautiful Fenton blue opalescent hobnail epergne. I bought this when I was at the Fenton convention (at an offsite sale) and got a pretty good deal on it. Then I get it all the way home and discover that the seller hadn't bothered to mention that one of the horns actually wasn't hobnail, but rather "Diamond Lace". See that little horn laying next to the epergne? Well, after I made this discovery, I went online trying to find a CHEAP hobnail horn, and found one!
Unfortunately, I neglected to measure the horns I had, and this one is for an apartment-size Fenton blue opalescent hobnail epergne. I know that the person who sold me the first epergne was under no obligation to tell me that one of the horns didn't go with it (you know, "Buyer Beware!" and all that) but it sure would've been nice. As a seller myself, I ALWAYS point out any flaws or discrepancies in things I sell, but maybe they thought I was aware of the wrong horn since the price was relatively low (but not THAT low!).
Now, this is one little cutie-patootie epergne. It's a Fenton pink opalescent Diamond Lace epergne with a Snow Crest rim. It's the size of a Coke can! Cutie-patootie is on her way to the antique mall today so that everyone can go, "Awwwwwwwwww!"
I need some addresses, BTW. My email address is over there on the right.
Just remember, boys and girls. Just because you don't get first prize is no reason to give up hope.
