Heath Ceramics Collection
The pouring rain and wind didn't deter me from this thrifting this weekend. I was out the door early on Friday to wait in line at an Estate Sale that had mentioned Heath in the listing. I made it 2nd in line and once in the door I hurried toward the kitchen. The pottery was there waiting for me. There were so many plates, little plates, tiny plates and mugs. The price was fantastic.
I usually carry little sold stickers to place on larger items that I want to buy but I didn't have any that day. So I grabbed the plate with the price and went in search of a Sold tag from the main table where we pay for everything. I happily stuck the sold tag onto the Heath and continued shopping.
This book on Heath Ceramics went with the set. It's full of stunning photos of Edith Heath, her early pottery and photos from the factory which was in Sausalito, CA. The book is going in my resource library.
With my new focus on buying what I really want to sell, I'm able to go into a thrift store with positive energy. I went into Goodwill last week and spotted this iittala bowl on the shelf. Now when I buy 2-3 items I feel content. Before I was really looking to fill my basket but it was with those items that are now in my "garage sale" shed. This will hopefully be listed this week.
I picked up two of these fabulous owl glasses which will be for sale at the Little Shop Booth this Saturday at the Waldorf Circus.
Saturday morning I drove out into the beautiful hills of Sebastopol to an estate sale of an artist. She loved to dabble in pottery, copper and enamel. I found this studio copper necklace.
My friend Jacki introduced me to the world of enameling when I lived on Bainbridge Island. Since then I have thrifted a small kiln, lots of copper pieces and enamel powders. Now I just need to bring her down here to show me how to do it.
This week, I will be preparing for Saturday's Little Shop booth. I also will continue to list auctions in order to take advantage of eBay free auction listings for Store owners. It's going to be a very busy ReSelling week.
