Vacation Antiquing - What we got!

The things I actually came home with aren't nearly as interesting as what we saw in the shop but here goes.
I found my vintage scale! There were a few white ones but I liked this black one best.
As you can see above, it's sitting on the counter with a cloche-ful of pears at the moment.
My other purchase was this ironstone chamber pot.
Yeah, I said it..chamber pot. It was sold "as is" for $2.
See why? I didn't care. I can see it filled up with some pansies out on my porch.

I also snapped up this ironstone plate (my first)
The three pieces look like a set, don't they?

After a thorough washing and drying, it's in my china cabinet for now.
That wasn't all..the kids also got some treasures but I'll have to get some photos and show them off later.
