I had the best day today. I headed over to an estate sale that was a little north of Jefferson City about 80 miles from our house. They had advertised some vintage state tablecloths and I was not disappointed when I arrived. On my way back, I stopped in Tipton at a place that is an antique store on one side and a thrift store on the other. The thrift store gives you a brown grocery bag and you pay $5 for everything you can fit in the bag and $2.50 for each additional bag. I only filled one bag but I got a lot of stuff in it. Here's my favorite item I stuffed in the bag.
Morgan Designs Bucket Brigade Ice Bucket
How totally fun is this ice bucket? It is really cool (because it's an ice bucket, of course) with the nautical theme as we live between two large lakes in Missouri. It will be perfect for those summer outings - oh, too bad we sold the boat! It will still work out on the deck. And it was made in the U.S.A. so that makes it even better. I don't know much about Morgan & Company except that they were located in Boston. I would guess this ice bucket to be from the 1960's. A great find for a $5 bag!
I've been a little remiss in posting to my blog (actually, a lot). I will share with you some more of my finds from my Friday thrift trip next week. I got some fantastic goodies including a vintage Craftsman tool chest! I think Mike and Frank would be proud. Have a super weekend!
