Let's Play, "What's in the Box?"

I decided to go through one of the many boxes in my garage.  I wonder what's in it?  Let's check it out together!

Before the archeological dig- just three visible treasures.

Vera scarf- chiffon, black/gray/brown/mustard, geometric squares, with ladybug logo
Ladies' gloves- nude, slight gather at the wrist, pucker design on front
Thermos- very tall, red/black, 1971 King-Seeley Co., unused

mint green, plastic?/lucite?, container with lid- I wonder if this was a sewing box or a box kept on a lady's dresser...

12-inch round, glass, divided relish tray, leaves and bubble design, unmarked

black glass tray, 8.75 x 6.75 inches 
front:  crisp graphics showing a spool of thread and usage over time
back:  Story of Thread (presenting an historical outline of thread usage).  
This piece commemorates Coats & Clark 1962 150th anniversary.
A great piece! 

bowl, off white/brown flecks, approx. 5 inches high, marked: 58 USA

footed planter, pea green/white flecks, unmarked

You know my affinity for green pottery, so this planter is in the KEEP pile!
woven look, unmarked, so pretty.

sweet little kitty planter!  unmarked

cream-colored planter, USA, small chip on back side :(

forgot to rotate- sorry!
tall, off-white vase, swan with feathers, unmarked
I wonder if this was part of a pair at one point?

  ashtray, white/goldish flecks, 8 spots for cigs, USA

ashtray, beige, plastic, Anholt-Ashtray (Willert Home Products, Inc.)

syrup pourer, pressed glass, star on bottom, 2 on bottom, off-white plastic top

Can you believe ALL this stuff was in 1 box? Me, neither!



Too funny! I was digging around in my gargage yesterday too! I "found" 3 totes of fall treasures! Now to remember that I have them to sell!
Who know's what else is in the other totes! It's like shopping for free! You found some great treasures in your boxes!

What a treasure trove of goodies! Love those planters, especially the kitty one.

Betsy, the kitty is so precious. This is only one box of many (estimation: 30+). Imagine the treasures that await!

What great junque!! What will become of it? Unbelievably, I saw the glass Coats & Clark piece at the thrift last weekend. I did not buy it. :O(

Hi Peace. Well, there's the conundrum: I've yet to develop an outlet to get rid of my treasures (thinking etsy, could do eBay, no shop outlet). If anyone saw anything on my blog, I'd gladly sell it. I just need more followers to see my treasures!

Just became a "follower" of your fun blog. I also have a tuxedo kitty!
