This weekend's thrift scores!

I found a few things this weekend - not a ton, but some fun stuff, including a mystery item I need your help with!

I FINALLY found a Burwood word clock (not the CLOCK one - I will keep that if I ever find it!). I haven't tested it yet to see if it works, so keep your fingers crossed for me! Besides that, I scored a Betty Crocker's New Picture Cookbook (check out some of these sold prices and you will see why I never leave one of those behind!). The gingerbread man cookie jar, lighted Christmas tree topper, and Josef Originals Santa & Mrs. Claus shaker set were fun finds all from the same estate sale... And finally a box of 1970's Chemex coffee filters - hopefully someone with a vintage Chemex coffee maker will want some original filters to go with it!

Hiding in the back behind the cool glass bottles with cork lids is a really nice Denby coffee pot, and a Sun Tea jar. Up front is a neat vintage mirror/brush/comb set, and a West Bend slow cooker. The final item is the one I need some help with:

It's a quite large vintage Orange Slice serving tray - it is made of either paper mache or a very lightweight wood, and looks hand decorated. It is signed, but I can't make out what it says:

I did some searching around but couldn't find another one like it - if any of you have any ideas, please do leave a comment and let me know!

As always, if there is anything here that you are interested in, just drop me a line at!

Here's one that sold on etsy - perhaps you could write the seller and see how much hers went for. they don't say if it's signed or not.

seller was Sunsetsidevintage and it was sold in June 2009

Thanks Lynn! I'll drop them a line, sadly no maker info in their listing, I had my hopes up for a second! lol

Awesome betty crocker cook book find. I will start paying more attention to cookbooks at garage sales now. I like to bake so I generally look at the recipes :)
