I only rarely come across Depression Glass at the thrifts, but what I have found I really do like. My entire collection, save one piece, has all come from thrift stores or auctions for super-thrifty prices. But despite not having much experience with Depression Glass, I really enjoy reading the several different books I have and trying to learn to recognize the patterns on site. I correctly identified these pieces from memory - I was proud of myself :-)
I also bought a vintage metal stool that I hope to repaint soon. A future project I hope to document here!
Hope your thrifting/junkin/antiquing has been more productive than mine :-)
