It was slim pickings at Kane County this weekend. All of my Christmas friends were there searching, but there was not much to be found. Where did all the vintage bottle brush trees go? I was able to bring home the black alligator purse that has a ring which allows for a little purse decoration. This month, it will be sporting a vintage Christmas tree pin. The tea caddy is silver over copper with an interesting Thanksgiving scene and finally the gold Art Nouveau style cream and sugar was made by the Tillowitz, Germany, factory of Reinhold Schlegelmilch. Not such a bad day after all.
