Bargain Express on Ecrater Marketplace

I came across a really nice store this weekend named "BARGAIN EXPRESS" located on the eCrater Marketplace. 

The following is an excerpt from their about us page:

I love resale shops, estate and yard sales, and flea markets - any where I can find a bargain! I get things from family, friends, and fellow resale junkies that don't want to take time to sell/list anymore. If I don't have what you're looking for this time, check back in a few days or e-mail me your request (could be I have it but it's not listed yet).

Here's one of my favorite collectibles items: 

Vintage May O'Naise Jar DeForest of California Hand Painted 1957

Oh so cute May O'Naise jar with adorable face, bright blue eyes, blond hair, pink cheeks and green hat! From DeForest of California, it is hand painted and marked 1957. There is a little slot on the top of the bowl for a spoon. I found no cracks and only one tiny chip on the hat and no cracks or chips on the bowl. There is crazing on both pieces (I believe you can see that in the pictures) and there is some shelf wear on the bottom of the bowl. This is a fabulous collector's piece as this company is no longer in business. It stands approximately 3 3/4" tall and is about 3 3/4" wide at the widest part of the face.

Dress up that old birdcage

You can use that vintage birdcage in grandma's basement for a hanging focal point.  I bought this birdcage at an auction for $10.  It's made of bamboo with a wire hook, and it was originally painted an orange-red color.

I knew it wouldn't go with my decor very well.  I bought some metallic gold acrylic spray paint, and that did the trick.  It gave it a nice sheen and reflective shimmer.  It still had the perch that goes from side to side that the bird sits on. 

I thought this would look even better with a "bird" inside. I didn't have a real bird, but I did have a broken hummingbird figurine ornament that I was going to throw away.  I attached it to the top of the cage with a fishing line and positioned it right over the perch. 

Well, this was looking rather good.  I needed a bird dish so I borrowed one from my neighbor.  It's a chinese delft design painted in blue and white.

My hubby added a chain to the hook and the other end to the ceiling and now I have a very nice display that hangs over my dry sink.  Everyone who sees it thinks there's a real bird in it, until they get closer and see that he doesn't move around, lol.

Dress up your porch or patio this summer and add a touch of whimsy.  You can find realistic clip-on bird figurines like these online or in your craft store. You can dress up the cage even more by attaching ribbon, adding a small houseplant, or adding peatmoss to the bottom of the cage.  Be creative.
