For your enjoyment, I've also got a couple goodies from last week's trip to the Wentzville Flea Market with Mr. Modtomic (and our respective lady-friends).
Mr. Mod didn't see much that piqued his interests, but I managed to bring in a decent (if somewhat unexciting) haul: an enamel teapot, a West Bend penguin hot and cold, and a collectable tankard. There was one additional purchase, but I'll have to share that with you all later.
I'm batting 1000 on the West Bend hot and colds at Wentzville. This was my second trip and my second hot and cold score.
They're not really my favorite retro server, but they are kinda cute and I have vivid memories of seeing these at my parents' and grandparents' holiday parties. I'll keep one for the memories and pass the other on to a new home.
Here we have another kinda "meh" item: a white enamel teapot. The girlfriend likes tea. I kinda like coffee. We needed a teapot. I like the white/black enamel combo. That's about all there is to say about that one.
The pewter-topped Longton Crown tankard is a gift for the girlfriend's father, who has a budding collection. He (and she) are from the United Kingdom, so we wanted to give him something quintessentially American from her latest visit. I'd say we found it.
I'd venture to guess that very few Englishmen have a Robert E. Lee tankard in their collections.
Well, that just about wraps it up. Keep an eye out for that last item from Wentzville in my next post and let me know what you think of the new format. I'll be adjusting (and hopefully improving) it over the next few days.
