Vintage Thingie Thursday

Yesterday was a good thrifting day :-) I usually try to visit the Super GoodWill whenever I am in the area. Some days are good, some days are not so good.

Yesterday I popped in looking for something that had nothing to do with dishes. But of course I had to take a look at the domestic aisle, you know, just in case there was some little treasure lurking there.

And to my delightful surprise, I found these little fellas........

And then, back behind them was this............
And they were all priced at this...............

So I kept looking around, back behind things, under more things......... and I said to myself, you know there must have been a little tray or something that would hold these little beauties together. However, searching in vain, I finally just walked away for a while. Sometimes you have to do that, to refresh your eyes.

I thought I would give it one more try. On this second attempt, I found a tray, but it was a little large, and the color was much darker then the patina of these little rooster condiments. So back again, I am searching, and my eye spies this.............

hummmmm........... right size, right color.

I turn it over and see this...........

Longanberger!!!! They make pottery?????

Don't they make a nice set?

All married up with my Rooster mugs (also a GW find) and the cocky crow that watches over my kitchen counter.

Yes they did have a stand to sit in, one had a wooden handle, Jocelyn. Another was a plate that had ridges for them to each sit in. Great price, you lucky gal, you!

Have an eggs-tra blessed Easter ~
