Cruisin' for Collectibles #2

Cruisin' For Collectibles in Bellingham
Today is the second post on "Cruisin' for Collectibiles".  After leaving Lynden, Washington, we were driving along Guide Meridian  towards Bellingham  and came across an interesting looking  Estate Sale on the left at
4894 Guide Meridian.
We were looking at Vintage toys when I noticed this Transferware teapot that I thought would blend nicely with my Mason's Vista pattern dinner set.  My husband offered less than the tag and we got this tiny Sadler Brigadoon for $20.00.
The store was full with a variety of treasures.  Although you can't see them, there were plenty of happy customers browsing and purchasing items. 
When I went outside I noticed a little wire plant stand with wheels.   I fell in love with it knowing that it would be perfect at the cottage displaying deep, hot pink coloured impatiens in white pots  placed in a shady spot.
It was $9.00

It was another lucky day "Cruisin' for Collectibles!"
No, it wasn't Mother's Day....but shouldn't every day be Mother's Day?
Thank you for visiting "Cruisin' for Collectibles!"


  1. What great finds! Your teapot is so beautiful and what a wonderful price! I have the little flower cart like yours and even the pink garden gloves and hobnail flower pot! Good luck thrifting!

  2. Hi Nancy,
    Thank you so much for commenting. I just love your blog todayy with your violets and chairs. It is so lovely! We have lot in common since I have a 92 year old mom. My mom still loves her cup of tea. How lucky she is to have a daughter like you who makes such a special tea party!
    Take care,

  3. I do love your teapot and what a great price. The 3 level plant stand - I saw the them one yesterday out antiquing and have always loved them. I nearly bought one several times but I need to find a house with a sun porch first - ha! Love your post - very fun!

    1. Hi Bernideen,
      I am always sooo excited to see a comment from you! I have not yet linked up to your "Open House Thursdays". I hope to do it soon. I love your white shabby chic paint on your furniture, especially the tea wagon - it is so dear! Your cranberry glass looks beautiful against the white with all of your pedestal cake plates. You have lovely ideas!
      Talk to you soon,
      Thanks again,
