A couple weeks ago Hunting Tigress, who left the first comment on this blog, contacted me with a request for my address so she could send me this:
This is great. Not only because I didn't have Missouri, I also have so many Missouri readers who will be happy to see it in my collection. (We are, after all, connected by the Oregon Trail.) Thank you so much Robin!
You should all check out her blog Mod Lodge Vintage. Combining my two favorite decorating styles, Mid Century Modern and Hunting Lodge! Seriously, If only I could get my living room to look like Timberline Lodge or the Ahwahnee I'd be happy. It's tough with a Pre-WWII New England apartment, but I try.
Robin also has a sweet eBay store: Ritter's Vintage Finds. She's sells lots of State souvenir stuff.
I had part of this blog already written about how I haven't had much luck finding any trays lately. That's because my friend and co-worker Polly Sonic got to them first. Imagine my surprise when I came to work yesterday to find a shopping bag hanging on my office doorknob with these inside:
All were apparently at our local Goodwill. The check out girl declared that they must be part of a set. Polly said: "You have no idea." If you want to read more about the history of these trays, check out my post on the subject. I'm linking up with Apron Thrift Girl for her Collect Share today.
Maybe I'll find more trays this Holiday weekend. Monday is Presidents Day which is a far better February Holiday than Valentine's Day. Why? Because Goodwill and Savers are having 50% off sales! I will be posting a special Thrift Share Monday with real time updates via Blogger and Facebook. Stay tuned for more details.
