Saturdays Vintage Finds -- Jadeite Joy 8.2.14

It is the only thing Martha Stewart and I have in common -- our hearts rejoice at jadeite.  My heart positively did a jig when the first garage sale I encountered on Saturday had TWO stacks of nesting jadite mixing bowls.  Is this real?  Are you kidding me?  Where is the TV camera?

As exciting as this find was, jadeite has dropped in value over the last few years.  After checking out the current market value on ebay I decided to just go ahead and sell it at my antique booth.   It all sold in one day.

I also found this stoneware planter with
great lion head and rose swag motif.

I haven't been able to find one like it,
