Delicious Saturday

The original plan was to get up early, go pick up my dad, hit Finnegan's, eat at Smoke Meat Pete (You can't beat Pete's Meat) and drive my dad back. Unfortunately dad had to work on saturday....

So instead we got up early, packed some sammies and hit Finnegan's all by ourselves. The day was perfect, sunny not too hot(until afternoon) and flea market lovers were out in full force!

Those 2 lovelies were begging for a good home!


I always like a boxfull of bakelite handled cutlery.


Is that the Primary set I see? Too kaching and too worn out!


Lovely glass, Pyrex and Fireking Primrose


I want!


I am curious by that small bowl....it wasn't the same primary blue and it had a newer stamp underneath from the late 70's early 80's...Microwaveable


I nearly had a heart attack at this table....There's not much I like better than seeing a big group of bowls!LOL

I found some totally fab things for the shop....


A Fred Press liquor caddy! How cool is that? Don Draper has one on his desk for sure!


And the ladies who have lunch are bound to serve it on some lovely FireKing Luncheon plates!

How was your weekend?

Just looking at your photos and the Pyrex made me feel good! Love that very cool liquor bottle set. I'm off for lunch and junking with the girls! Maybe I'll find a treasure today.

I.WANT.THOSE.CHAIRS.I.WANT.THOSE.CHAIRS.OMG.
I'm on a constant lookout for that kind of thing to replace my set on freecycle.

You can't beat Pete's Meat....crack me up! What I wouldn't do for a smoked meat sandwich! When I was pregnant with my second daughter, I worked right across the street from Ben's! Needless to say, I was there alot!

Heh! Nice post and beautiful pieces! So Miss V, just curious, what is considered too ka-ching for the primary bowl set? I have also seen that darker blue bowl in person and have regretted not buying it since. It’s a really nice shade.

Hi Six Balloons! Too kaching is 65$ for a set that has been in the dishwasher WAY too many times!

But like I always say, if you like it and you want it and you have moolah go for it!

Maureen, I remember this austrian lady, she would go visit her parents with suitcases full of Swartz's smoke meat and t-bone steaks, oh and let's not forget a suitcase full of booze!
