New Treasures Part 1

Went to a Antique mall the other day and picked up a few treasures. Hoping to go back in a few weeks as they actually had some crocks for decent prices. I couldn't carry anything else or I would have gotten some more..lol.. The grater was only $1.00 and very old & rusty, other booths had them for $4.00 and up so this was a good deal.

This candle holder was only $1.50, very heavy treenware. Not sure if I will paint it or leave it this color yet.
Old rolling pin with green handles..$4.00 and very heavy. I replaced mine with this one in the crock in earlier post. Looks much better as it looks old compared to mine..lol
My find of the day! This crock is in perfect condition. I know it's not old but I love it. It was 20% off so I only paid $11.20. It sorta of matches my Pfaltzgraff dishes so I put in the china cabinet with it...looks really good in there. Have a few more items that I picked up, but they need to be made-over so will show you when they are done.

I am so envious. You got some gr8 items at gr8 prices! I love-love-love that rolling pin and the thing you call a candle holder. What are tha dimensions of that piece? I'm pretty sure I would paint it......

Great finds! I am on the look out for a crock. so far the ones I have seen are out of my budget. I laughed when I saw the grater. My mom has one exactly like that. It is excellent condition and being used on a regular basis. She'll get a chuckle when I tell her it is an antique!

Have a great day!

Nice finds! That crock is really nice and I love the rolling pin.

I recently sold all of my old graters, even my round ones. My grandaughter was insistant on playing with them every time was back was turned. I was afraid of her getting hurt on them. I had them put up high, but she would still climb up and try to get them.

Because they were so old and some of them had a good bit of rust, I just gave up. I didn't want her to get tetanus from them!

Those are the only things she has ever done this way. I don't know what the fascination was, but I feel betetr that she can't hurt herself on them now.
