Scored! Few bags of mibs and a couple of pieces of Akroware...the jury is out as far as what I exactly have (posted examples in the marble ID thread). Anyway, the 4 I picked up just too not come home mibless and the Akroware...

I really love that leaf bowl! Perfect for the fall season coming around the corner! I'll have to look for one of those the next time I go antiquing.

I like it too....especially the peachy color.

Was just happy to score! Here's some other bags from the same vendor, who, by the way, is the same one I got that jar from that had the Sparkler! I looked these over good and passed....

Marbles seem to not move very quickly at all at this place, other than this vendor restocking with these various bags after I picked up all his jars over a month ago, everything I passed over at other stalls over a month ago was still there. I'll give it another month or more before I go back. Besides, I spotted a little hole in the wall antique store down the street from this place on the way back through after our lunch I didn't know was there. Didn't stop, already a long day, but will check it out upon our return 👍

Bags re ok !! You can still look through them. What I hate is when they pack the jar tightly & have it taped shut. I never buy these, I figure they don't want you looking through it for a reason. The one time the vendor was there, they let me un -tape it & what was inside was worse than what was outside, so an attempt to hide some terrible marbles, just my opinion on the taped shut thing. There is usually a rhyme to some of their reason. Some honest vendors I buy from at the coast let me open, examine & whatever because they know I'm serious about maybe buying their item which is the way everyone should conduct themselves. I guess I can see their point though, with thieves & such !! "Hope" ya score big at the little store William. Oh I did find some killer looking caramel slag trinket trays but upon closer exam they all had scratches or small chips "Drat" + some way overpriced Akro ware like you found, same color I think, kind of a turquoise color, pitcher and creamer $ 20.00 for one & $25.oo for the other, quadruple what I'd consider paying for a common color. "The search goes on"

Well, the "score", all Jabo I believe from fantasy land 😁...btw, the 3 that look mostly or half white are actually pink and grey.

Just made this score today.  At least I think it was a score as I still don't know ID's very well.  Thought it was okay for 18.00.  Photo'd all that I thought were okay and the rest were pretty dinged up.  About 50% were mint or near mint.

Nice score Newbie.

They look to be vintage from my angle. Keep up on the study and ID and continue the score's.

Spend less and study more. They are all still out there, for the informed at least.

Collect what you like--this is the key to success in collecting.

Marble--on!!

Not sure how often anyone is supposed to enter scores, but found these in the wild yesterday.  All near mint could be mint if I knew how to grade.  Very clean.  Getting lucky at finding things I guess.  If they are any good that is.  $8.50 so the price was right.  The last pic weighs 7 1/4 pounds it was $20.00.  Have some equipment coming to help with the pictures.  Going to look at a really big bunch tomorrow.

Share it every time you score if you choose to, my man! It's always good to see findings from the wild 😊....I'm actually happy too see some folks starting to score again, seems like it's been kinda slow since mid July with the posts. Love it 👍
