Sir Thrift-A-Lot: Thrift Scores

This weeks thrift scores... 


My local Goodwill, which hasn't produced much lately, was actually pretty good this week, well, if you consider producing 5 alright condition Hazel Atlas (?) mugs & a clock I mistakenly took for vintage (where was my head?), but is still pretty darn cool. It was very hard to find information on this Assembly clock, which is head to toe made of rubber, which made me think it was pretty rare. It was very hard to Google though, clock & assembly seem to go hand in hand. I did find one similar one on eBay - just a different face plate, which was located in the UK, which had sold for just over $20 US. Does anybody know anything about this company - Assembly? 



Some more pix of those lovely mugs... 



Some eye candy:
Pyrex in excellent condition.
A Verde Pyrex divided dish from a Value Village I haven't been in in so long - $6.99. MINT. 


A almost complete set of Butterprint mixing bowls - still need a 404... Kind of expensive for Goodwill, but whatevs. I paid $18 (plus tax) for my first set (excluding the 404) from an antique mall & $18.18 for this set, tax free. I have to confess, I really have a problem. I can't stop buying Butterprint. I have about 30-35 pieces, maybe more.


I absolutely love that I'm adding a Ghostbusters flat sheet to my collection! Totally rad! It'd be even radder if the donors had donated the pillow case - I guess it glows in the dark! Oh well, it'll turn up... eventually. 


I have been looking for a photo album to use.. for something. IDK what, but it was on my list. I haven't found one that fit the bill in the past few months I have been looking, but this one is just perfect & absolutely adorable. Do you love it? $2.99! Value Village, never used. 



From the same Value Village comes this New Kids on the Block vinyl, a tour souvenir from England only 99cents! 


That's all folks!
No Ohio for me, things don't always work out.
I will, however, be going to Windsor.
But, unfortunately, Windsor hasn't been too good to me thrifting wise lately.
But I may be venturing to a thrift or two in Michigan, near Detroit, or antique malls or flea markets. Any recommendations from my American friends? 

Going to link up with Flea Market Finds.

(just adding some key words for anybody Googling about that Assembly clock, since it was hard for me: vintage Assembly clock orange rubber white Quartz contemporary 1970s pedestal reproduction)

  2. Vintage or no, that clock is great. And I love your new photo album. I'm hoping to find another album of vintage photos soon, so I can continue the Vintage Photo Friday posts. I have a feeling that some of the thrifts may be removing the photos from the albums themselves. I guess they want the items in nice presentable retail condition...? I want 'em with the photos! Hmm. Gotta keep on hunting, I guess.

    1. Jackie,

      I have been thinking the exact same thing. It's been a long time since I found a full album of photos. I find the random photo that looks like it was missed when being removed, but it's never anything interesting.

  11. Hey there,
    we've got pretty much the same clock at home ande I want another one because I think it's so cool. We bought it in London close to spitalfields there is a marketplace we're you've got all kinds of designers of jewelry, t shirts, clocks, all kinds off food,... it only cost like 10 of 15 pounds. I don't think you will find it on the internet because it was just one guy making them.
