    $50.00 buys 136 pieces of Cape Cod Ruby Glass!

    I collect red ruby glassware---So, last weekend my sister ran across a storage unit sale that had 2 big plastic totes and 3 small boxes of the Cape Cod Ruby glass by Avon. She asked the lady what she would take for all of it and she said $50! That averages about 37 cents each . There are dinner plates, bread & butter saucers, serving platter, serving bowls, tidbit tray, candle holders, 3 different sizes of goblets as well as one champagne glass, berry bowls, napkin rings, mugs, and misc other pieces.
    I am just thrilled with this find and wanted to share!
    Here's some pictures and thanks for looking!

    That's a great find. I don't do Avon unless it's sterling but you got a great deal nonetheless. What I really like are the Shawnee Winnie pigs in the background! Are they real?

    I just wanted to add that I like the tidbit tray. For some reason whenever I see one, I usually buy it, no matter who made it. I have a couple for sale now (Royal Albert).

    Yes, the pottery pieces are real---That's another one of my favorite things to collect. I love Shawnee & American Bisque! Click image for larger version.

    Here's some of my other pieces of pottery......the old buffet/sideboard came from a garage sale. It was in an attic with one of the legs broken off, but it was repairable. I got it for $25! ! I think its an Arts & Crafts period piece.....it looks like a Gustav Stickley piece to me, but there is no name stamped on it anywhere. The buffet makes a perfect display cabinet for my pottery.

    Oh wow! That's a great little collection of pottery there. Absolutely beautiful. Thank you for sharing. I have a bunch of stuff myself. Unfortunately, I don't have the space I need to display it all properly. My pieces are a little crowded in to say the least. Here are some of my favorites in case you haven't seen this thread yet- Anyone Like American Art Pottery?

    I found a couple of my Shawnee smiley pigs i'm gonna be listing on Ebay on Sunday night. As much as I like most of my stuff, I've really got to get rid of some things, it's overwhelming. Pitcher and smaller creamer. I was gonna list Bo Peep but she's not going for much unless it's got the gold trim, mine has the purple hat and green trim coat. She'll be going in the yardsale.

    Thanks for the comments Bobby...I couldn't get to this stuff to sell it to you if I wanted to! It's packed for moving and in a storage container. I can't wait until our new house gets done so I can get it out and enjoy it again!

    Thanks! My grandma got me started on collecting red ruby glass....she gave me probably 10 pieces when I was a teenager and I have been picking up any and all red ruby glass since then. The last time I counted my ruby glass I had about 600 pieces. I have got to get some more shelves!! I'm running out of room.

    I like the souvenir ruby flash stuff. Whenever I see a piece I get it. I don't find it too often down here for some reason.

    I like that stuff too! The pieces I have came from a local auction.....I think we gave from $3 to $5 a piece for them.
    I got a really good deal on some of the other red ruby Fireking pieces in my pictures---I went to a garage sale and got there early. The lady was still unpacking boxes---she had this huge box and it was FULL of red ruby. I asked her what she would take for all of it and she said $25! I almost fainted! I took it without even seeing what all was in the bottom of the box and when I got home and unpacked it, I found 70 pieces including a punch bowl and stand, stemmed goblets, plates, saucers, tea glasses, punch cups, etc. Some of the pieces still had the original Fireking labels on them! That was a thrill and one of my best garage sale deals!

    The two tier platter should go for at least $30 alone on ebay. I have sold several pieces of the Avon Ruby Red Cape Cod. The napkin rings are highly popular, as well as the butter and relish dishes. That was a nice score.!

    Thanks apush! I don't sell on ebay anymore......I think the next big 'thing' is going to be the facebook groups/pages for localized selling. And it's CASH sales with no shipping!
