I thrifted like a mad woman last Monday--President's Day meant 50% off at Unique and Value Village. And I got a ton of great stuff, some of which I'm going to have to show you later. Why? Because this post is dedicated to my current crop of mystery items--things I think are really cool, but can't exactly figure out. If you have ANY idea what/where/when any of these things are, please comment!
I am honestly not sure why I picked up this set of six tin trays--I think I mostly liked their shape and saw craft potential. The design on them is odd, too, though, and they look old. They are unmarked on the back.
I bought this little froggie pot because it's adorable, but I am hard pressed to figure out from when or where it came. It looks handpainted, but I don't think it is, because there is a stamp on the bottom:
I know this little jam pot is from Finnish company Arabia, and I've found tons of other pots from the company online, but none with this single orange design. My guess is that this one is more recent than the multi-fruit ones I'm finding elsewhere, but I'm not sure. Anybody a collector?
Because they are marked, I know these are cocktail forks from American Tempo flatware. What I can't figure out is when they were made, or why in the world I'd see a bag of 16 of them, in individual plastic bags. They're adorable, if completely impractical, and I just couldn't help but pick them up for $1.
I absolutely adore this little clothesline kit, which I actually thrifted months ago but just re-found in my house. The looks of it have me guessing it's mid-century, but I have no idea if that's actually the case and haven't be able to find anything similar online.
Finally, a repeat of last week's mystery, just in case. Anybody see a casserole dish like this one?
