Chance 'reversed' Polka-Dot posy vase find
« on: April 04, 2016, 03:19:40 PM »
At last I've found (and purchased) a 'reversed' polka-dot posy vase, 4-in high. Very hard to find this, so was very happy to stumble across it. Thanks to PC for urging me to stop at this new retro shop we discovered on the way back from B&Q. The two guys there have a lot of Chance handkerchief and posy vases.

This and more new finds are being posted fairly regularly on http://chanceglass.wix.com/thirdeditions

Aha, that'd be telling!

It's on the A458 (Hagley Road West) on the junction of Kingsway:

Now I've told you. Only been open for 4 months.

Only been open four months and it PC thought it was a charity shop when we passed - but open on a Sunday?

Nice shop although prices are not very Keith-friendly!  ;D

Thanks for the compliments, Chris. I trust you found the Flora biscuit barrel on there, which you bought on my behalf.

Keith, is the Candy Stripe on opal-flashed glass? If so, it's much scarcer than the ones with a white enameled background.

Yes, and the creamers, still keeping an eye out for you for other items, fingers crossed.
