Thrifty Finds at the Red Barn (Pewter and Armetale)

This past weekend I spent some time with two of my college gal pals, and guess what we did...we went antiquing! One of the places we shopped was that a little spot called the Red Barn in Blandon Pa.

Here I found a set of pewter salt and pepper shakers in addition to two decorative armetale Christmas plates. Armetale looks like pewter however it is actually an aluminum alloy made of 10 different metals.

The first plate is by Wilton Armetale and it is part of a Christmas series running from 1978 to 1999. This plate has the Wilton stamp RWP on the back which means it was created by Wilton and not an imitator.

The Currier & Ives image depicts a Victorian scene with a horse sleigh crossing a bridge in front of a river mill. The rim is decorated with poinsettia leaves. This plate I picked up for $10.

The next Angel plate did come in a Wilton box and there is a label on the back saying Wilton Armetale, but there is not a RWP stamp. But what the heck...I liked the image and it was only $8.

My final purchase was this set of pewter salt and pepper shakers. For just $6 they will be the perfect accent on my holiday table this year.

What fun and festive little items have you found recently?
Wishing you a great week as you get ready for this Thursday's day of thanks, followed by the kickoff to the Christmas season!
