Oh, Vicki, love the vintage blue.  I have the windmill shakers, but mine aren't that nice.  Love the fish and the windmill cocktail shakers.  It must be Blue Day.  I found these items at the GW today.These are Fenton Colonial blue thumb print goblets.L.E. Smith Canisters.  $14.99 for the set I paid.

I also love the "ships" pattern in cobalt blue - I own the drinking pitcher with tumblers:

I really love this pattern to, but Have never found a single one!

http://thumbs4.ebaystatic.com/d/l800/pict/271423209810_1.jpgAs always - anything with Sea Critters takes my heart! :)

The "Windmills" do come in a cobalt color too!

Excellent idea Chris - and thank you for the tip. I think this would also help us not to get "stuck" with lights we may not like - LOL

Lillian - Do you know the name of your punch bowl and or cups patterns? It looks to me that your punch bowl is the "small" version? About what size is it please?

Also, I dropped in to visit Lillian, Shirley and other collectors who have been posting their wonderful Salt and pepper shakers. And, I really loved Lillian's "Windmill" ones made by Hazel Atlas - Depression era glass. So, I thought I'd share here, what I did there on these wonderful old pieces! I'll post a few pics to, so you all get to see them! :)

From me to Lillian on the shaker page:

Also - Your "milk" ( actually called platonite, I think) glass windmill shakers are part of a depression glass set - including all sorts of shapes. These were made by Hazel Atlas, and at one time HA was the largest glass maker in the USA! Here's is some info on this and other awesome patterns by HA: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/glassware/hazel-atlas

Betty, Vicki, I've found that the lights do not seem to want to stay stuck to the bottom of the wooden shelves. So, I bought some velcro today, 2" wide and will mount them with that.

Comment by Lillian Dunbar on September 17, 2014 at 8:38am

I have a Twins pattern carnival 2-piece fruit/punch bowl and 6 cups that aren't the same pattern. If I were to place this for sale, what would be a reasonable price to ask?

Comment by vicki hufstetler on September 16, 2014 at 10:05pm

Oh this is funny!  ( based on my post below) Just did a bit of a search to see what's going on today in battery experiments - LOL

It would seem that 1. None of today's batteries are as good as when my now 35 yr old was 12, and 2. That Rayovac is by far superior to all others - WOW!

Comment by vicki hufstetler on September 16, 2014 at 9:53pm

Thank you both, Betty and Chris! This will be an interesting experiment. I think I will purchase the current "AAA" required LED Stick ups, and see how we do. Our sales in general terms would run 7-8 hours for a time period of 2-3 times - 3 being more the average.

So, I'm also wondering if the "brand" of batteries used makes any difference also? My oldest son once ran an experiment in school, where he tested two different brands of batteries. The first brand was "Energizer" the second was "Kodak" - he put, I think 2 "C" batteries into his little brothers "toy dog" that would move around, jump, bark etc." he put the toy in the bathtub, so we all didn't go nuts - LOL!  And then tested how long it would run continually, without turning it off!

The results; Energizer ran continually less than 30 hours, Kodak on the other hand ran over 36 hours, non stop! So clearly Kodak was the superior brand of the time. This was when "the bunny" was used as the "non stop proof" of the Energizer brand!

Unfortunately, Kodak no longer makes batteries, so I think I will do a little search around and re-try my son's experiment with the new LED lights!

Thank you for the info and inspiration to! :) Happy Hunting!

Thank you, Chris. 

Comment by Chris Pollock on September 16, 2014 at 12:00pm

We only turn them on for 'show' Betty. Although no one comes to visit except maybe our sons every blue moon or so.

Comment by Betty Proper on September 16, 2014 at 10:00am

Thank you, Chris, for the info.  Do you keep the lights on for extensive periods of time or just for "show" once in a while?  I am curious as to how long the batteries last.
