Estate Auction Scores ~ Vintage Postcards and A Sunshine High

Ah, the sun was out today, and I went to an auction. What more could a gal want? Maybe to bring home a few treasures, too?!

It was a smallish auction, but had some interesting things. I picked up a few pieces of EAPG (antique glass dishes), in the MARSH PINK pattern.

And a pretty (unmarked) rhinestone pin...

There were a few cases of interesting "smalls".
Gee, guess which case caught my eye? The postcards, of course.

I wound up with about half of this case.

I think the best thing I bought was this great SANFORD'S GOOD LUCK INKSTAND, with the original tin litho horse-shoe topper, and

paper label. I checked around for info, on ebay, and google, and am tentatively saying it is scarce in this condition. The glass bottle, with no tin top or labels is readily available, and referred to as a tugboat. But we know better now.

That was all I brought home today, along with an auction-high, and lots of happy-endorphins from the sunshine!
