Remember when every home and place of business had ashtrays of one kind or another sitting around?
With the demise of smoking, ashtrays and advertising tobacciana items are rarely being made any more and they will, one day soon, become a hot collectible. Add to or start your collection today.
EX-SMOKERS, HOLD ON TO YOUR SMOKING COLLECTIBLES
When you quit smoking, keep your tobacciana collectibles. Tobacco stands without the top parts are good plant stands. Cigarette cases are popular as small purses that will hold a credit card, driver's license and a little money.
Tobacco tins and boxes are interesting storage containers, and the box labels and cigar bands work well for decoupage projects. Best of all, ashtrays can be used to hold short stemmed flowers or kept in the bedroom to hold earrings and rings overnight.

Here is a quick 'Twitter for Dummies' lesson, and how to use it with OLA "Share" Feature:
1. Sign up for an account at TWITTER (takes no more than 5 minutes) 2. Go to any of your listings (do them all one at a time) 3. Hover your mouse over 'Share' (don't click 'share', or you'll have to search for Twitter, whereas it will be right there in the window if you just hover) 4. Click on Twitter (a window will open and it will be your Twitter account) 5. Click on "Update" (in the Twitter window) 6. Go back to your listing and refresh (be sure to look at how many views you have before you refresh) 7. Check out the views from just one Tweet!!! Those are actual views. Everyone single one means someone clicked on your link in Twitter and it brought them to your listing.
A WORD TO THE WISE: It is easy to get caught up in this form of advertising. It is VERY IMPORTANT that you only do a few at a time or you will be flagged for spamming. Yes, you are allowed to 'spam', but getting carried away is what you are not allowed to do.
SOME EXTRA INFO: You can do this for other OLA members! Every listing here at OLA has the "Share" feature. It works just like described above. So if you see a Hot Deal that one of your friends or colleague is offering, do them a favor and Tweet them too! Remember, each of us has a different set of followers... so spread the Tweets around... but don't get carried away!!! A few at a time... whether they're your listings or someone elses!!!
Wishing the Best Holidays to all from LFWoodWorking We hope that only good things come to you and Yours Stop by and check out some our new items we have listed heres our link to make it easy: LFWoodworking
This FB Rogers salad set is vintage.
The FB Rogers mark is clearly visible on
the back of each utensil.
The mark reads, FB ROGERS ITALY.
There is no sterling mark,
which leads me to believe this salad set is silverplate.
It is in a simple, plain pattern,
with only a double scallop on the back of each utensil.
Excellent pre-owned condition,
with no scratches or dents.
Both the fork and the spoon measure
9 1/4 inches long
and 1 7/8 inches at the widest point.
Together, they weigh just over 4 ounces.

I have sold some of the Royal China Currier & Ives dinnerware that I had listed, but I still have some very nice items of this dinnerware available.
I currently have a lot of Royal China Currier and Ives 8 Cocoa Mugs and 8 Saucers. These are not the usual cups with the angled handle. These cups are a bit bigger, and they have a curved handle-somewhat scarce to find. These cocoa mugs or cups are decorated with the Currier & Ives scene called "The Star of the Road". They are approx. 2-1/2" tall, and have a top diameter of approx. 3-3/4", and hold about 7 ounces. Each saucer measures approx. 6-1/4" in diameter, and feature the steamboat scene in the center, called "Low Water in the Mississippi". They are impressed USA on the bottom. All are in very good condition, with no chips, cracks, or crazing.
Also available are a lot of 8 Royal China Currier and Ives Dinner Plates, 10-1/2 inch diameter. These are not 10" plates, as are more commonly seen, but 10-1/2" diameter plates. These have the scrolled border, and are decorated in the center with the Currier & Ives scene called "The Old Grist Mill". They all have later Royal China stamps on the undersides.
Looking for a great collectible gift for your favorite Golfer? Maybe that collector needs these Three ULTRA Golf Balls with a VSA logo they are new and in a convenient plastic sleeve that attaches to the golf bag. Good gift idea!
Northeaster Storm or the Nor’ Easter. What a mess and this is our personal experience. It always seems like the worst things happen when you are asleep. I shot these very unprofessional video clips to chronicle specifically for this blog. Then life got in the way and I forgot. Till we got hit with another storm! And, another flood. Not the same kind of storm but unrelenting rains on an already saturated ground. We are in a low area. We can do high tides on their own and we can handle ground saturation in a stand-alone situation. When we get both at the same time, forget it, it’s all over and the basement will flood. :( This is a four-part video show. Part One is of the heavy rains and standing water.
Part Two is of the 4 inches of water that arrived in the basement and a clip of the high water from the river covering the road into our neighborhood, making it impassible.

Available for purchase at www.onlineauction.com are two different beautiful porcelain dolls, both in their original packages. Both would make wonderful gifts for a loved one, or for a gift to yourself if you love to collect dolls!
The first is a set consisting of 2 Porcelain Dolls in Box from the Cameo Rose Holiday Collection. There is a large doll, and then there is a smaller dolly. Both are dressed in beautiful co-ordinating velvet and gold dresses. Behind them, there is a Christmas tree on the cardboard background. These dolls were designed by Melissa Jane, and dated 1997.
The second doll offered is a Porcelain Doll in Box from Victorian Rose Angel Collection . This doll is wearing a white lacey gown with gold accents. She has a golden snowflake-type ornament dangling from one wrist. She has gold-color angel wings, and she has lots of pretty curls. The box says this doll was a Limited Collectors' 1996 Edition.
This set is gorgeous! ~ Cocobolo wood, a beautiful exotic wood ~ Pen uses a Parker style “click” mechanism with a Parker style black gel ink refill ~ Pencil has a “super-feed” click mechanism and uses .7mm lead ~ Measurements-Pencil is 5 5/8”, pen is 5 ½” ~ 24kt gold trim ~ Shaped wider at the grip for easier handling & smoother writing ~ Beautiful satin finish, giving them a smooth texture ~ Rosewood presentation box (purchased, not made) included ~ Free shipping Stateside! The set was hand turned by my dad who just turned 94! He does this as a hobby now and to earn a little extra. He has been an avid woodworker all his life and still has all his tools in his shop, ready to go. This set is a keeper! Beautifully crafted and a wonderful set for a gift! Dad made me one out of Cedar and I love it! Order it today! Stateside shipping is free! They will be mailed priority mail from Iowa, although they were made in Montana. I brought them back from Dads-he doesn’t do computers!
