Alameda Point Antiques Faire Small Haul

Alameda Point Antiques Faire Small Haul

Alameda Haul

Today, we hit the Alameda Point Antiques Faire.  Mel and I were up around 2:30am to get ready and head out for the faire.  The Alameda Point Antiques Faire opens at 6:00am, and there is usually a line eagerly awaiting to get in.  We were third in line and managed to score a few items for our collection.  Here are our trophies for the day!

Holt Howard Pixieware

Mel was able to snatch up these two pieces of Holt Howard.  These little pixieware jars can get pricey!


We have tried to kitsch up our kitchen even more than it already is.  When I saw these Holt Howard scarecrow salt and pepper shakers I knew they would look fantastic on our Big Chill cooktop.


This kitschy ceramic cow bank will look great on top of our fridge!

Cow creamer, S&P

Here are more kitschy cows.


This is a metal doggie bank.  He is so cute!


We already have a set of these, but one of them was repaired.  This is a flawless set that will be a great replacement.  These are so atomic!


Though we do not smoke cigarettes, we love the colors in this set of ashtrays made by Eagle.

Coral Fiberglass Shade

This is a great coral fiberglass barrel lamp shade.


Mel was able to pick up these fifties wall fish as well.  Ceramicraft produced the fish on the right.  Although we’ve seen the set on the left before, we’re unsure of the maker.


These vintage hanging seahorses were a great find.  They were produced by Nameth Enterprises.


These of course will end up in our Tiki room.  They are vintage Bali Tiki headhunter salt and pepper shakers.


We are always on the hunt for vintage barkcloth, so we knew we had to get this bolt of fabric.


This is an awesome small pink ceramic bullet planter.  Something that is crazy in the bullet planter world is that sometimes the smaller ones are more valuable than the larger ones.


Mel and I have really enjoyed staging our rooms such as the kitchen, laundry room and bathrooms.  This set of vintage products will end up in our master bathroom.  We love all the little starbursts!


I love this novelty shot glass set, it’s fantastic!  The imagery on the original box is so cool.

IMG_0398Mel scored this fantastic large vintage plastic aqua and white purse.


These speakers look like UFO’s!  They were made by National Home Speaker (model SPT-501) and were mainly used as external speakers for small radios.


For me, this was the find of the day.  This little record player is in fantastic original condition.  The unit still works, but needs some minor adjustments to fine tune it.


The green felt on the platter is still soft and the fabric on the front is flawless.


The cabinet needs a little touch up, but I am so lovin’ this little guy!

1950’s Wales Japan “Sugar Coated” Porcelain Figurines


This is our first set and its a mother squirrel with babies.  They are chained together.

Mel and I came across our first set of Wales “Sugar Coated” figurines a few months back.  We loved the colors and how adorable each figure is.


Here is a set with a mother lamb with babies.  The chain is broken, but I am sure I can find a replacement.  Also, it seems to be pretty common to have paint loss on these, so I am going to find some enamel paint to touch them up.


Here is a set of mama and papa cats with a youngster.   It appears a running theme Wales used was a red bow tie on these critters.


Here is a Wales elephant.  This is supposed to have two babies chained to it, but this is how we found it.

Mel and I would love to get all the different “Sugar Coated” ones that Wales produced, but we are not sure how many different ones they made.  Here are more we found searching the net…


OH MY!!  Pink elephants!  I must have. (excuse blurriness)


Here is a small cat that is being shipped to us.  It will complete the cat trio above.

This is a mouse set we recently won on eBay.

We snagged this along with the mouse set from the same seller.

  We think these will look great in our atomic shadow boxes.  If anybody has any Wales figurines with the sugar coat texture you’re interested in selling, let us know!
