On my way to Meredith's house I came upon an Estate Sale. I didn't think I would find anything being that it was the second day of the sale. Oh what the heck I figured, I'll stop in...it'll only take me a few minutes.
They didn't have much and everything was pretty much picked over...but, going through everything I spied these...
A cute little red polka dot frame that would go perfect in my kitchen. I am obsesses with red polka dots. And this silver looking tray. I hadn't a clue as to what kind of tray this was but I was drawn to it and it looked old to me. It's a pretty decent size and it has very delicate flowers engraved on the inside surface. The back surface looks like it was hammered and filled with hammer head sized indentions all over it.
So I came home and took a better look at the tray and on the underside it has "Everlast...something" engraved. Turns out it's Aluminum and quite popular in the 30's and 40's. People couldn't afford Silver at this time so the country turned to Aluminum. This company was started by Russian Immigrants in 1932. It's worth according to the internet....at least $25.00.
I payed $2.00 for it and .50cents for the frame....pretty good for running in and out in 15 minutes.....I'm just sayin'
