Curious Possessions and other finds

It was a spectacular weekend in Atlanta with perfect weather for hunting treasure and playing in the yard.  Curious Possessions, a shop in Snellville was having an outdoor, parking lot sale so I had to make a fun run out to see what I could find.  

There was treasure everywhere and these dealers had items priced to move.   A gal pal dealer even had everything in her outdoor space at a $1.00.  Here are some of the finds I came home with:

Vintage, 1970s curved cathedral glass hanging lamp.  

Darling 1950s prom dress.  Brilliant blue with sequins and netting.

Lovely Victorian, milk glass oil lamp that was electrified.  I have a top piece that will go well with it so I will do a new electric setup and this will make a pretty desk lamp.

 I then moved on to the interior of Curious Possessions and found a terrific man's straw boater from the 1900s.  This beauty is in fantastic condition.

 Stunning pair of Victorian salt and pepper shakers are deeply carved and frosted glass with sterling tops and mother of pearl toppers.  

 Can't visit Snellville without stopping by my favorite shop, Vintage Village.  I always find something marvelous there.

I am head over tea kettle with this fantastic purchase.  Shaker type wooden hat box with wooden knobs. Most likely French, this is now in my personal collection.

From Snellville, I headed out to some of my other favorite haunts.

Nice mid century leaded cathedral glass hanging window piece.  

Sweet pair of Art Deco silverplated creamer and sugar.  
Unusual shape and in marvelous condition.

Pair of Depression era, serving bowls in that coveted Depression Green.

Unique shaped teapot from "The Stevens" Hotel in Chicago.

A pile of darling Christmas themed tablecloths.

Found another stained glass piece. This one is a larger window pane hanging.

Once I got home with my treasure, Gynness and I went for our evening walk.  She was exhausted after sniffing through all of my finds and the walk and sprawled out to snooze the rest of the evening away.

I hope it was a lovely Mother's Day for all and blessings to you and those you love.  SeaWitch

Yet ANOTHER post where I gasp and SIGH! WOW - great haul, my friend. Probably the best treasure of the trip was that precious pup, waiting for you! Happy Wednesday. XOXO
