I wish I had vintage 4th of July decorations. I am really into decorating with Americana for the summer. But things around here are pretty hard to find. Today for Vintage thingy Thursday I was in my dining room and the sparkle of my china closet caught my eye. I am a primitive lover at heart but sometimes I run across something at the thrift store I just can't pass up.
This is my collection of individual salts. They were used at the formal table so each person had their own.
I love the spoons as well They are made of glass. I have seen some in plastic but I believe them to be newer. I'm not really sure when plastic was manufactured.
The box sets I found at different times at the thrift store.
This is one of those items I pay little or nothing for. That is the thrill of the hunt for me. The goal is being to add to the collection when I find one for next to nothing.
At auction I did get the crystal knife rest for virtually nothing. I included it with the salts since I only had one and it fits in the same era as the salts. It holds the cake knife from our wedding in the china cupboard.
This is a late day post but I hope you enjoy my salts. I do.
