My decision is final. I'm keeping the milk glass pitcher and glasses for myself....
This little trinket box is lined with red velvet.
I love the
tarnish patina on all of these pieces and won't even attempt to remove it. There's still another box of silver platters and glass I never took pictures of.
The sweet monogrammed sugar and creamer are marked Brooklyn Silver Co. Quadruple Plate.
These came complete with salt and pepper. Thanks, but no thanks.
She has a repair at the bottom, but no chips or missing parts.
Miscellaneous fun stuff. The glass jar feeder is already full of buttons.
I love these!
Student's Handy Shakespeare, 1881. Eleven books of a twelve volume set.
The covers are tattered and torn, but all the pages are intact and in excellent condition.
"How much for the whole box?" When I asked the sweet lady having the garage sale this question, she told me that there was nothing good inside; she told me twice just to make sure I understood.
Her definition of "good" was not the same as mine. I didn't find any gold or diamonds, but that's not what I was looking for. The box was full of rhinestones, glass beads, and all kinds of treasures just waiting to be repurposed. I even uncovered a few pieces of sterling.
I was like a kid in a toy store. She even gave me her phone number for when she gets the rest of her garage cleaned out.
