Ok folks, it's Christmas at the flea market... and here's some of the things in my stall that we have for the holiday shoppers. I wouldn't bother y'all with this sort of thing, except some of you seem to enjoy seeing what I have... I apologize for picture quality. I'm stuck with a mobile phone at the moment... and the red background doesn't seem to condone pics for some reason.
First... there's a set of 8 of these powder horn beer glasses that would make somebody a wonderful present. These are TIARA glass. Tiara / Indiana Glass closed in 2002, and many of their pieces are coming into their own as collectables now... I'm pretty sure these date to the late seventies or early eighties.
And heres a pair of Fitz and Floyd salt and pepper shakers... I like these because the S and P's are actually usable pieces.
More Tiara glass... this pair of beer steins are marked on the bottom and are in Tiara's 'black onyx'. Definitely mid seventies here...
This pair of Salt and Pepper shakers in the Fitz and Floyd 'Damask Christmas' pattern are in their origional box... which is very important to collectors. Early eighties.
And I actually really really like these... dating to the late seventies, the tumbling reindeer are one of the earliest Christmas sets that Fitz and Floyd put out... there's a pair of candle holders, made to be centered on the table with the five cavorting reindeer surrounding them. I once saw them in someones house worked into a table center with holly and pine, and it was quite striking. These are in excellent condition.
And that's a few of the pieces that we have in the Flea Market this week.
