"Thanks, Vicki. I did check the Mosser's site. The are making the Inverted Thistle in other colors right now. So the Hunter Green was made in the past. I've put them in my booth for sale. I'm sure someone…"
"I went to a few thrift stores today, and found some Mosser inverted thistle items in Hunter Green. I'm not sure when these were made, my guess in in the 1980s. Anyone know for sure? I didn't see too much of this…"
"Dianne, that is great you've put IAOL pictures on Pinterest. I really enjoy looking at the antique booth displays.
On Christmas wrapping, my gifts are all in bags this year. Many of my Christmas themed bags I got from…"
"Thank You, Dianne. You know I learned allot from your display ideas. I try using bright colors as much as possible in my booths. I even go out of my way to buy a colorful interesting item to display and sell."
"Happy Holidays everyone! It's been on the cold side here in California, so I haven't been going to many yard sales or early morning swap meets. I've been hitting the thrift stores and getting some good…"
"Oh My, Angela, what BEAUTIFUL pieces of glass. Is the bottom picture (green) a tooth pick holder or a business card holder? And do you know the maker of the pink bowl above it? Love it.

I am a member of the Glass & China Collectors of Bakersfield. I collect many types of glass. My favorites are glass & ceramic basket, L E Smith Bittersweet & Lilac. I also love Viking and old enamel ware items.
Tell us about your interest in antiques, collecting and any antique related websites, blogs, businesses.
I have a antique and collectables booth at the local antique mall, called Mill Creek Antique Mall. I love the hunt, at thrift stores and yard sales.

Thanks Shirley, I feel in love with Carnival Glass the moment I saw my first piece, didn't have a clue what it was just knew I liked it. That piece was a plate, Fenton's Peacock and Urn. It was in a box with tons of other stuff. I was going through boxes of old 'stuff' a friend had inherited. Last Christmas he sent me that plate! I have about 85 pieces now. Guess it's time to take a few new pictures. :-)!!
Hey Shirley! Wow, great collections!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I myself am having to move in theopposite direction, getting rid of some things and downsizing because I am going to be building a small Tumbleweed home. But the idea is to furnish the home with functional antiques. So, I am looking for free standing enamel farmhouse sink, and a very small apartment size hoosier, so keep an eye out for me, okay? Robin
Its a blast collecting but even more fun sharing my finds with others. I have a rather slap-dash system but everybody gets a turn being displayed for at least a month. I have groupings on the dining room table-I commandeered half of a bookcase so there's 5 shelves there, plus I bought a chrome-look rack for the kitchen at Costco that has 4 shelves and I can get two displays on each shelf. I'm just about tapped out as far as patterns are concerned but you never know when a new one will appear. I have Inarco Mood Indigo and Orange Spice which are fairly easy to come by but the cool plum is harder to find. I,too, love the deep color. Thank you so much for commenting on my photos.
