Today on The Smokin Gnome I give you $12 Ashtrays !!!!
Carolina and I love to hit Flea Markets and Yard Sales on a regular basis, and one of the items I am always on the hunt for are unique glass ashtrays. I have been collecting Glass Ashtrays for about fifteen years or so, and have quit the collection, I would say somewhere in the neighborhood of thirty to forty in total.
This is a group of ashtrays that Carolina and I picked up two weeks ago at the new Beaufort Flea Market, on Highway 21. Got the entire group of them for $12. Starting at the top and working clockwise. The Shark Tooth Ashtray, Carolina is going to fill that one with shark teeth. The square crystal one, simply but has a very nice art deco style to it. The Footprint, a nice bright orange ashtray that kinda looks like a foot. The Matching orange set with flowers, the two on the bottom right are Kingwood Ceramics. The little round one in the middle is a Bob's Big Boy ashtray. The Long Brown one is shaped like a bowl with the rests in the middle, its a little odd, but neat. And last and certainly not least, The Heagar Ceramic Ashtray, a beautiful piece of workmanship that I just love, this was the one that drew me to the ashtrays in the first place. And for $12 for all of them, one of the best deals I've had on ashtrays in a very long time.
Found this at a thrift store located across the street from my doctors office, had a little time to kill before my appt and was lucky enough to find this gem. Again, $12.
This ashtray, I did not buy, my gran made this (painted and glazed) at the senior center in Alaska,
It also had this awesome table lighter with it, that still worked, just needed a little fuel and it fired right up.
This is the pride and joy of my collection, and it did not cost $12, it cost my mom $40. But it is Orange and it is brilliant.
This is my mom, she passed away in April of this year. I will always miss her and the very thoughtful gifts she always gave me. Thanks mom.
And that's is all for now, I may dig up another group of Garage Sale (Carolina and I call it Garage Sailing, like we are on an adventure) and post them later on today or tomorrow.
Thanks for looking.
