Sir Thrift-A-Lot: Flea Market Finds


I'll let the pictures do most of the talking, but I was lucky enough to cross FOUR items off of my thrifting want list off this past weekend after a mini thrifting tour of Southern Ontario. I made a partial want list last week, but didn't mention a few items. The items I was lucky enough to cross off were: unopened bottle of Orbitz drink, set of Butterprint Pyrex mixing bowls (missing the #404, but that's cool), the 2 missing bowls for my Friendship Pyrex Cinderella set (funny too, especially since that's all I needed for the set!) & I was able to complete my set of Butterprint refrigerator dish set. It was a pretty good trip! & the trip took part on the most beautiful winter day in Southern Ontario I have ever seen, almost 80 degree weather! - Check out the rest of my haul below...














Here is the Orbitz drink. If you are not a resident of Canada you may not have heard of it, since it was released only in Canada by the Clearly Canada Beverage Corporation & oddly enough, my boyfriends father used to produce this stuff in this factory & said it was "a bitch to make". Introduced in 1997, it was only for sale for a short time before being discontinued due to poor sales. At this time there is no plans to start producing the drink again. You can read more about the drink on Wikipedia.

  11. Great haul! I have never heard of Orbitz, even though I'm in Ontario too. I guess I didn't pay attention when it came out, or my memory fails me, lol.

  14. Great haul. In Alberta Pyrex seems difficult to find in good shape - so waiting for the garage sale scene to try and find some. I love the little pigs.
