Great Finds This Week

It wasn't my best week thrifting but it wasn't the worst.


I have been looking for a vintage kitchen scale for quite some time, and I either thought the scales I encountered were too expensive or too distressed and shabby, or both.


I found this Hanson 2060 model, 60 pound vintage utility scale in black at a consignment shop for $8 this week.


It's a little bigger than most kitchen scales, but it is vintage and in great shape. I love the face.






Also this week, an Academy, heavy weight, silver over copper, rectangular silverplate tray. I haven't polished it yet but even if a some silver is gone, it's a great tray. It was $3.




Also a McCoy flat, white bowl marked Mccoy 7515 USA. I paid $4 for it. It may have been part of a McCoy pitcher and bowl set.




I normally do not pick up souvenir plates, but this Empire State Building plate in blue and white at $1 was too tempting to pass up.


What do you think?

  15. Congrats on finding a scale. I've been looking for a year and finally found one this weekend too - at the flea market. Yours is nicer though.

  16. I think you had a very successful shopping adventure, Carlene. The scales look great and the tray is well used but both will be nice in a kitchen vignette. I'm sure you will find cute ways to display them. ------------ Shannon

  18. Oh My Gosh! I want to shop where you shop. You asked about the chair cover in my "girl cave". I should have told about it in my post, but I didn't think about it. I was shopping in a furniture store that was going out of business. I saw that chair cover in a cardboard box on the floor. It didn't have a price. When I asked about it, the clerk said I could buy it for $5. I was shopping out of town, so I had no idea whether or not it would fit, but for $5, I decided to get it. It's not a perfect fit, but it works ok. laurie
