Another glorious week at the thrift!
The funny thing is that I went on Wednesday, which by the way is senior day and in addition to being totally jealous of the discount received, I was unprepared for the sheer number of seniors at the thrift. They were everywhere. Driving their carts like they drive their cars. Plus it would seem that they were scooping up all the good stuff because I could find nothing.
Then on the way out I spotted this little gem and it was love at first sight. So I gave the lady $5 and went on my merry way. I even contemplated taking a thrift break. Sometimes I do that. Take a week or two off just to let the inventory circulate and find some new fresh items.
But I had ‘the call‘ on Saturday morning.
You know what I am talking about. The Call to Thrift. I was making my scrumptious breakfast puffs on Saturday, daydreaming about Pa Ingalls, having no plans to thrift and all of a sudden I started to imagine these nameless, faceless people at the thrift store finding all manner of treasure that rightfully belonged to me.
Like this vintage beauty. I don’t know much about vintage jewelry. I just buy what I like. $3
I love these clip ons. They remind me of my Grandma Bea. $3
The backs were broken off of these, but included in the bag. I figured for $2 I could try and fix them somehow. If nothing else my daughter has a fabulous pair of earrings for dress up. Some of the rhinestones are missing. Bummer.
Simply could not resist.
I have been wanting one of these tiered dessert thingys forever. I didn’t even think it was truly a vintage find until I came home and looked up Kromex on ebay. Seems it was manufactured in the 50’s. This one does not look as it has ever been used. I paid $6.
And I love this old beauty for a summer patio party.
I don’t think it was ever used either. Well worth $3.
Keeping up my milk glass streak! Anchor Hocking $2
And another milk glass vase! I am happy to report that I will be throwing a baby shower in the fall and can use all my milk jug pottery as Mr. Right likes to call it. Can’t find a mark on it. A bargain at $2. See the little snowmen hiding in the back?
Not old. In fact I think they are brand new. $2.50 each. Of course Mr. Right had to holler about ‘We don’t need anymore Christmas decorations’.
Whatevah Mr. Right. Whatevah.
Divided serving dish., perfect for summer parties. No marking.
This is the back. It is brightly painted to show through the frosted front. I love it!
This is a treasure. A piece of Maling pottery.
It is super fabulous!
A piece of Maling for………$2.50!
