Things I Bought At The Auction


At the auction they sold this as a vintage "radio."  But when I got it home I realized that it is some kind of amplifier. The brand name is "Silvertone."

 
This is what is inside.  I will get my brother to check it out. A funky vintage piece of something.  Mine for $4.00


 
And these double Old Fashion glasses. Eight of them in pristine condition.  But now that I look at that leaf pattern....hmmm.  Mine for $2.50. (I don't know what is wrong with me...I don't drink, but I keep buying these kinds of things)


And this telephone table.  I eyed it and knew that it would be perfect at my back door...you know when you come in and have your hands full...The reason that I think that it is a telephone a table is because see that little shelf under the top...don't you think that a telephone book would just fit perfectly under there?  With your black telephone on the top?  I paid too much, but I wanted it bad.  Mine for $22.50


And last, but my favorite.  These gorgeous glass candlesticks.  You can't really see it, but they have little stars etched into them.  They look very sixtyish to me.  I made a new friend there who is a dealer and she told me that she thinks they may be Mikasa.  Mine for $2.50!!!
So what do yawl think?  How did I do?
I didn't post a signed print that I got for $2.50.  Why?  Because I didn't get home with it!  Got to call 'em and see if they found it.  I'm gonna be upset if they didn't.

Love it all. I have an addiction to glasses, also. And dishes, and etc...

I asked GG about your radio. He says it's an "old timey tube radio." He says maybe 60 years.

I love those candlesticks. Won't they shine and sparkle?!

Looks like a radio to me, too. Radios with tubes were around into the 50's and 60's. If the tubes still work, they are valuable as people buy them to refurbish their vintage radios. Boxes of old tubes go high here at auctions.

Love your finds! You certainly are finding BARGAINS!

It seems you are very good at finding bargains.
I love that phone table. It's probably good, expensive wood.

OK, that does it. I don't care if it's a 5 hour drive from here--next month I'm going with you to that auction! I hope we don't fight over stuff, though . . .

Lovely items and great bargains. I'll ask my husband if he knows anything about the Silvertone amp. He is a muscian and may be able to shed some light on it for you. Looks great - perfect for repurposing into something else. Well done.

I think you're right about your little table, that's a phone book shelf for sure! And if you love it, you did NOT pay too much for it!
