Sir Thrift-A-Lot: Flea Market Finds


I love joining in with Her Library Adventures.. for FLEA MARKET FINDS! I'm joining up again this week bringing some of my wicked finds to the party. (Above: Americana shaker $1.99 at Value Village).

Two pretty Store & Serve Blue Horizon Pyrex dishes (473, 472) in such pristine condition for $3.99 from Salvation Army - the same Salvation Army the Vagisil & vintage Strawberry Shortcake stationery (that I sold on eBay for $49.99!) came from!. Lids are very chipped, but better chipped than lidless.


I really love this pitcher! I couldn't find much information about the company - AVIR, but I learned that they are from Italy (hoping that is correct), this pitcher is totally awesome & I'm so surprised it came with it's original stir stick! I'm not sure if you can make it out or not, but right down the middle there is a plastic container (the pitcher itself is glass) that is meant for ice, so it doesn't water your drink down & it keeps your drink cooler for longer. Because of the pattern, I'm dating this at the early 1980s? Although I could be wrong - $3.99 at Value Village. Can't wait to use this for Sangria at Pride! Wish I could have photographed it better.



Love all this retro wrapping paper. Okay.. okay, I don't know if the Lifesaver wrapping paper is retro, but still totally cool. Treasure Troll, uhh.. Beauty & the Beast (just came in the package) & wrapping paper with disc mans, roller blades..

  1. Oooh Horizon Blue - looks to be in impeccable shape, and agreed, chips lids are better than no lids.

    Holy cow on the vintage Strawberry Shortcake stationary! Score!

  4. Vintage wrapping paper is such an addiction for me--but I never use any of it it seems :(

    I find it every weekend so now I have a huge bin with about 40 pounds of paper in it.

    One day I will come up with a way to use it but until then I pull an "Indecent Proposal" deal--lay it all out and roll around in it -- NOT!

    Wish you were closer--I have so much Pyrex I do not want anymore that I would give it all to you.

  5. knitcore - I love it! I found treasure troll stickers a couple weeks ago.

    SixBalloons - I know, right? I'm going to blow it all on an awesome calender considering bidding doesn't go to high.

  6. loveofthehunt - oh that pretty much sucks for me! I wasn't into Pyrex when I first starting blogging. It was one of those things that I just got into after seeing it on everybody's blog & now it's just fun to collect & show it off! You're lucky with all your paper. I don't use any of mine either, but I'm going to try to this year (just the crappier stuff, lol)!

  7. Funny how thrifts differ by country, pyrex is seen occasionally on blogs here, but everyone in the USA seems obsessed! I don't think we get quite the range of patterns and shapes. And you'd be unlikely to find much vintage wrapping paper either. All great finds.

  8. Lakota - I know, it's totally true! I'm in Canada, though!
