Sir Thrift-A-Lot: Thrift Haul Revealed (Part One)

Sir Thrift-A-Lot: Thrift Haul Revealed
Part One

On Wednesday I posted 2 pictures of a gigantic thrift haul I had piled on the top of my credenza. Here is part of that haul. 

I'm in love! My favourite 3 finds. Finally got my hands on some pink Butterprint! 473, the largest of the Bake Serve Store Casseroles, the seller knew what they had, although, she didn't know I had a lid that I paid only a $1 for at Value Village! I paid approximately $20 less than the price she was wanting to sell for since she had planned on listing on eBay sans lid. The JAJ daisy was another piece I bought off Kijiji, my first daisy piece, without a lid. Sneaky me, had another lid for this piece at home! Next, my absolute fav, the coral red JAJ snowflake. Absolutely flawless & I paid the price at Goodwill for it too. When I saw it, I gasped, made a beeline for the shelf & almost took a guy out when I bent down, but you gotta do what you gotta do. Goodwill price? $16.01. They normally don't price their pieces this high... I couldn't say no




Butterfly Gold, JAJ Daisy, Pink Butterprint
All completed with lids I had around the house



I found these fun vintage shot glasses at Value Village for a buck each! Fabulous. 



A few linens... I picked up these never used, beautifully embroidered Guinness bar towels for just over $2 (3 of them) & plane on listing on eBay. For some reason, my fiance wants to keep one. He's convinced he's going to have a "man bar" (haha) when we get a house. These bowlers crying towels, 50cents a piece, don't think are vintage, but will make for fun times at the bowling alley. 



These tins are by Simel. I don't know much about Simel. Other people have listed these as vintage on Etsy. Are they? Tins were made in Spain. $1 at Bibles for Missions. 


This egg lamp with feet is my second one. I wasn't going to look at the lamps as I was being hurried (*ahem*), however, I had a feeling & specifically went with this egg lamp in mine. I have come across one other egg lamp that I accidentally broke in the shop when trying to open the lamp part. So happy to have another! Now one can go on each side of the bed & will fit perfectly with our his & his mid century modern tables beside the bed. 


A few more things for this post... 
an old Thermos Avon bottle, little fridgie without a lid & a 403 orange Pyrex bowl. 



I will see you sometime later this week with a few more items from that haul. Like every Sunday, going to be linking up with Her Library Adventures for Flea Market Finds.

  1. My Avon thermos bottle is still fragrant of cologne, are you going to try to remove the smell??

    I would have paid $16 for the Snowflake piece too, i don't expect to ever find one of those!!

    1. Yup. Gonna try to remove the smell. Found some tips online, but have so much on my to do list that I'm not already doing! Did Google & find some tips, which I definitely will try.

      Does yours smell?

  2. I am in LOVE with the coral snowflake piece! Goodwill prices are crazy sometimes, but I think you definitely made the right choice in getting it anyway! Beautiful orange 403, too!

  3. The coral snowflake is Heaven! And I love it that some of your lids from home matched up! I've been picking random lids up at the flea market for $1 all summer. It finally paid off the other day with my Red "Gold Leaf" X-Mas Bowl! Now if we could all just find a bunch of cheap fridgie lids right? Haaa!

    1. haha, good luck with that! I found a 502 lid once for a buck & never bought it. I regret it to this day.

      So good luck finding the XMAS lid.. too lucky & bowl separately. Green with envy.

  9. I love love love seeing what you find! In-freaking-credible casserole dish loot - coral snowflake - Whaa!? I didn't even know that color existed! BEAUTIFUL. And the pink butterprint looks absolutely mint!

  10. Beautiful finds! How could anyone say no to those beautiful snowflakes? I think $16 is a steal forsure. Imagine ebay prices for that baby!

    I saw one of those avon thermos jars at a thrift this past week, but turned it down for the $10 price tag. I hope I find another because it is just so cute!

  11. Wow!! Those are some awesome finds! I'm very jealous of your pyrex!

  12. OMG! This is an old post, I was browsing images on line and saw your JAJs and pink butterprint!!! Now--I was feeling sorry for you because things have been slow for you lately, but good heavens! One could only dream of finding all of those!!! That lucky I'm sure to never be!
