Random Junk!

Random Junk!

Not much happening on my thrifting end this week - kind of a bummer, but I did find some random junk today.

The Simpsons - 1990 - Randim Marketing Inc. Happy Birthday paper plates - Sealed (49cents)
Beetlejuice - 1990 - The Geffen Film Company cards - Sealed, 2 packs ($1.00)
Norfin Treasure Troll giftwrap - 1992 - Artfaire - Sealed (25 cents)
Superman wrapping paper - Sealed (25 cents)
Super Mario Brothers 3 Nintendo toys - Sealed ($2)
Dakine covert leash - Sealed (99cents) - for the boyfriend

Also, a beautiful 401 yellow Pyrex bowl from Goodwill for $1.51. Decent.

That's all folks! Maybe next week will be better.

I do have a question. For the Nintendo toys - should I leave them in the packaging? Vintage McDonalds toys are worth as much as they are ever going to be worth & you can get them for rock bottom prices. I would love to have them on display, but I am wrestling with the idea of opening them... what do you think? Open them for display or keep them in a box...?



  1. If you can still get them easily and cheaply then you might as well open them and enjoy them. I get so jealous that you guys over there seem to be able to get vintage Pyrex easily AND cheaply, it's slim picking over here.

  2. yeah for pyrex!

    I am doing a pyrex draw this afternoon...pop on by and check it out!

  3. Wow on the Superman wrapping paper!

    The little Pyrex bowl seems unique too - I am not sure which set it comes from, but definitely not the Primary Colours one...

  4. You're magic, how do you find all that retro pop culture goodness!? I want a retro party favors party, I wish I would have scooped up the Darkwing Duck party favors I saw in that junk store...

    ...Anyway! Did you get your blog yet? I can't comprehend why there's such a long delay. Please let me know when you get it!

  5. The yellow Pyrex bowl looks like it is in nice shape. I love the color. Thanks for joining TTF and have a fun weekend!

  6. Love the Pyrex. It looks so shiny!

  7. Hello Vintage - it's nothing like it is in the USA in my city unfortunately. I'm jealous of most of the people I see posting from the USA!

    Van - it really is magic! & Darkwing Duck party favours would have been rocking. I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for the tote. Can't wait!

  8. SixBalloons - on my Google search when I came home because I was like, "what the hell set is this bowl from?" I seen that there was a yellow set of 400's. Never knew!

    Shannon - I missed the drawing, but hope the winner is happy with them!

  9. Whether your prime concern is taste or variety, Vaporfi got you covered.

    With vape juices that come from food-grade ingredients, their vaping flavors are more smooth and consistent.
