I purchased this little booklet several years ago at an estate sale. It's an advertising booklet for Old Reliable Coffee and it has amusing and charming little verses on each page that extol the virtues of cleanliness for good health. There are 10 pages with verses, 2 pages “Coffee as it Grows” and the back page is about Old Reliable Coffee. Booklet is in very good condition with some storage/use evidence on cover. This is a neat collectible and advertising item!
Made by American Thread Company, these are vintage “Ring a Round o’ Crochet” hemstitched circles along with an instruction/pattern pamphlet! The material measures 11” x 12 ¼” and there are 36 circles. The pamphlet has instructions for preparing the circles for crochet and there are instructions for Irish Crochet design, Medallion design, “Daintee” design, Spider design, etc. The pamphlet shows a copyright date of 1941...
Excellent condition pillowcases with hand-embroidered basket of flowers! Standard size pillowcases measure 20” x 30” and are 100% cotton. Last photo shows close-up of the embroidery, pillowcases are shown folded in half in first and second photos. Pillowcases have been laundered, lightly starched and ironed.
I have not removed this neat item from the frame – it is exactly as I purchased – based on the size, I am guessing it is a postcard. It has a copyright date of 1930 and is in very good condition with minor chipping at one corner and a missing piece at bottom (see photos). The sentiment is lovely and was apparently treasured by the receiver. A lovely gift for a special friend.
This pretty glass caddy/holder is not aluminum but would beautifully display a set of aluminum tumblers! Excellent condition!
These are so neat! There are two solid perfume compacts – one is shaped like a book, the other like a musical instrument. Both have the perfumes – I couldn’t identify the scents but they’re very nice. The book measures 1 3/8” long, 1 ¼” wide, the other is 2 3/8” long, 1 1/8” wide (at widest). Lovely collectibles!
These old leather postcards are so neat! There are 6 in the listing and none are the same although a couple of the cards appear to be souvenirs from Goldendale, Washington. Five of the postcards measure 5 3/8” long, 3 ½” wide, one was mailed from Portland, Oreg to Goldendale, Wash. It has a postmark date of 1906 and written on front bottom is a note – “arrived o.k. at 6:15.” One of the cards has “Mfg. By D.M. Averill and Co., Portland, Ore”...
I purchased this lovely necklace many years ago at an antique shop in Ohio – it has been in my jewelry box and now it’s time to share! Necklace measures 16 ½”, it has green apple color glass beads and round glass bead “dangles” that resemble apples (?). One or two of the dangles are missing but it doesn’t detract. Neat necklace, an eye-catcher!
I’ve grouped these 2 pair of earrings together – they’re really neat! One pair is gold-tone and has an airplane – stamped on backs: Beechcraft Queen, Model 80. The other earrings are gold-tone, have an eagle, and have some color loss on edge and backs. Both pairs are clip-back style.
These earrings are so very pretty and are so unusual! They’re screw-back style and they have a circular shaped dangle (1 3/8” diameter) made of beautifully grained wood with orange color Bakelite. Gorgeous, eye-catching earrings!
This listing has an 18” gold chain with 3 round gold beads and 2 elongated textured gold beads! Necklace and beads are 14 Kt and in the original box. Great gift!
These earrings are so neat! One pair has tiny shells, measures 1 1/16” diameter, and has clip back styling. The other pair has a star and a leaf (?) and is oval shaped with screw-back styling. Eye-catching earrings!
There are 2 pairs of lovely confetti Lucite earrings in this listing! One pair is black with silvery, very light reflective confetti, measure 1 3/8” diameter, and are clip back style. The other pair has confetti hat reminds me of aurora borealis rhinestones in that they have so many different colors depending on the light angle! They measure ¾” diameter and are also clip back style. Super!
These earrings are unusual! They’re round shaped (measure ½” diameter), and have a pretty horse design under what appears to be Lucite. Earrings are screw back style and are stamped “Sterling, Amco”. Very nice!
Neat retro item! This is a sterling necklace with sterling initial “L” pendant. Necklace and pendant are stamped 925. Pendant has marcasites for added sparkle. Necklace measures 18”, pendant is 1 ¼” long (including bale) and 5/8” wide (at widest). Pretty!

Excellent condition set of bubble lights! There are 8 lights – including a difficult to find purple color and 2 clear color ones – all work great. They have glass “slugs” instead of chemicals so the liquid is not at all cloudy. Super!
This is an adorable little angel ornament that is equally at home as a tree topper for a small tree! She measures 3 ¾” tall, has feather “hair”, glass beads on her dress and one in her “hand”. Her head feels like papier-mâché and her face is hand painted. Lovely!
This neat ashtray is the same golden yellow color of most Happy Face (Smile) items! There is one major difference – it has a frowning face! I’m not certain if it’s a “don’t smoke” frown or a “put your ashes here” frown – either way, it’s a most unusual piece of unmarked McCoy and a great addition to any collection!
