Flea Market Finds!

It wasn't a bonanza day at the flea market with lots and lots of great finds, but I did find two items I really love.

This little Royal Copely cat and book planter was just too cute to pass by. You can see that I still need to clean the dirt out of his book planter. I'm still trying to date him, but can't find the year he was made. I paid $4.50 for it.
And I really love this platter. It was made by the Paden City Pottery Company. The company opened in 1907 in Paden City, WV and closed sometime in the 1950s. This platter is very large--about 11" by 15". I paid $8.00 for the platter. (Do you see a lot of this pottery, Janet? Just wondering, since you are in WV).

It was a fun day out and I'm looking forward to heading back up there soon!


  1. I love both your finds. We seem to have the same likes. I have lots of platters, I can't seem to pass them up. I see some Paden City, but mostly I see Homer Laughlin. They are made in WV, too. I have lots of Homer Laughlin.

  2. I love the platter. I have several older plates and platters on my walls. This one would match perfect. Give us pics on how you display it. Blessings!

  3. Oh~ I love the little kitty planter, and the platter is beautiful, Rose Mary!

  4. Love both of your finds. I have a couple of pieces with the same pattern on your platter. They're packed away for safe keeping right now as I don't have any more display space.

  5. I love the platter!! How did you knw about it>
