Get ready for lots of loot photos. While at Salvation Army last week I briefly wandered in the china aisle looking for Japanese mugs, then saw these plates with what looked like a funky retro 50s look. So I bought the five bowls and three plates for $6.50, thinking it could be a learning experience. Turns out they are Temporama, a pretty collectible pattern made by Canonberg Pottery. I'm going to sell these on ebay, where they should fetch about $20 or more. Woo-hoo!
I picked up the tablecloth for the fabric and grabbed these two crocheted potholders. Aren't they cute? They need a soak in oxi. And what about this great metal platter: My home state with lots of towns highlighted. Love it!
Finally, as I was waiting in line to check out, I saw a sign that said "Religious items free" with a bunch of crucifixes and other stuff. I picked up this framed prayer, two St. Christopher medals and a little pearl-covered prayer book in Polish. Does no one collect religious items? Did they really think someone wouldn't pay 50 cents for this stuff? Or maybe the sellers have a rule against selling religious items? I don't know.
