The Dixieland Flea Market can be found in Waterford, MI. at 2045 on the Dixie Hwy. There we found a great collection of cookie jars which I would like to share with you now:
I’ve had bosses like the one in this iconic comic strip so Dilbert is like a brother to me. Keep those arms crossed in defiance, my friend!
This was released for the 40th Anniversary of Disneyland (1995), and apart from the strange coloring, is a nice piece.
One of the few cookie jars that actually chose a ‘cookie’ theme. Weird. And… he’s sitting in my cookies!
Mickey’s pup is ready for some fine dining, but I’m hoping there are more than bones in that jar!
Beauty and the Beast
Not surprisingly, this cookie jar was among the highest priced at $200.00 US. You pay for popularity!
One of Aardman’s best movies, this chicken from Tweedy Farms is about ready to hatch a batch of cookies!
The Seven Dwarfs
Finally let out of Snow White’s sight, the Dwarfs spend the free time guarding, not just their gems, but cookies too!
This one is a little strange. How can a heathy vegetable character be holding a yummy batch of cookies for us? Contradiction, anyone?
Dorothy and Toto
Most ceramic collectibles don’t quite get the facial features of real persons right, but this cookie jar got Judy Garland spot on! Not sure about Toto.
Blondie’s husband is known for his eating so it is no surprise he would show up as a cookie jar. I wonder if it holds sandwiches…
Choices, choices. I think I like the Mike jar the best. With a smug look on his face like that, he must have the best cookies!
Now that’s one crowded spaceship! The little version is a salt and pepper shaker.
This depicts one of my favorite scenes from the animated classic. But would there be much room for cookies in that house?
I guess I’d be upset if everyone kept taking my hat off to steal my cookies!
The Red Queen
Maybe taking cookies from this old gal wouldn’t be a good idea! “Off with their heads!”
“To snack time, and beyond!” Buzz can adapt his catchphrase for any situation.
If you eat cookies from an enchanted coach, they don’t have calories.
Now most of these cookie jars were priced between $50.00 and $60.00 US but were on sale for 50% off. The lady is closing her booth soon and is liquidating her stock.
We’ll end this post with the King of all cookie jars:
So if you’re in the Michigan area and need a new place to keep your cookies, be sure to stop into the Dixieland Flea Market and visit this booth!
