Swan Glass dish
Something similar sold for $22 on eBay, but I couldn’t find the exact swan. I’m not sure if mine is made for holding butter or candy, but I’m using it as a soap dish!
I stumbled on an interesting story about Duncan & Miller glass company. This dish is probably a replica of Duncan glass from 1890. History buffs and collectors will enjoy this link!
Darth Vader action figure
If this action figure was in mint condition with a box, it would be worth about $75, according to eBay. As I found it at the thrift store, it’s worth about 10 bucks. But still a great find for $1, in my opinion! I’m looking forward to endless pranks around the house.
Fall plaid ribbon, Offray brand 1.5 inch wired
Surprisingly, this exact spool of ribbon retails for $3.84 at the link I’ve attached. I paid 50 cents at the thrift store!
The Greatest Generation by Tom Brokaw
Click on the link for a synopsis of this book on Goodreads. It sells for $14.49 at Barnes and Noble, so definitely a great find for just $1 at the thrift store.
Maybe I’ll follow up after I’ve read it. I have several relatives in this generation. I’ll bet you know a few in The Greatest Generation as well.
The Home Adventure Library volume 5 Parents’ Guide by James Ertel
Priced at $17.98 on eBay. My research found several manuals and guides by this author, but not much information about who he is or about this Home Adventure Library. Mysterious? Let me know if you have more details.
