Op Shop Finds

 Today on my way from work I stopped in at the Red Cross Op Shop and spied this lovely green vase (on the left) in the display cabinet. Looking at it I suspected it was uranium glass which a "collector" behind me confirmed. He was busy looking at the bottom of the cabinet and I was attracted to what was up the top. I think his comment was "Ï missed out by 5 seconds". Me I am not totally sure he would have bothered to look up and probably thought it to be more depression glass. Being either depression glass or uranium ware I dont mind...but it does have that really concentrated bright green glass that appears luminescent with UV light. Putting down another piece of glass makes me realise that  I need to do some dusting. Another day!

Last Friday I had breakfast with my friend Richmal and then did a bit of op shopping (in the heat). These lovely bakelite cannisters  in a speckled green were a lovely find.

Also a few tall milk ware vases, which the lady marked down for me from $5 each to $3..can you believe she thought they were over priced! I wasnt going to argue. Yah for me!

I seem to have a penchant for mixing bowls at the moment and purchased another..just because.

And one last tiny white vase, just to nestle between the long necks.
Happy shopping all.
