Suburban Strip Thrifting Trip!


Yesterday was yet another Suburban Strip Thrifting Trip with my fiance. We hit a number of thrift stores, but the quality was low. Did find a few things & the jackpot of the day was at a store I usually hate going into because turnover SUCKS! They have a sign that says "1000's of items arriving daily". Even though they have that sign posted, I doubt they have "1000's of items arriving daily." Maybe at all their locations put together, but I doubt over that much enters that shop on a daily basis. They did have some great items this time, 

a Pyrex bowl I never knew existed - a Turquoise Gooseberry Cinderella bowl for only $1.99!


A Popples cake pan. My cake pans are piling up, luckily I got the apron below too at a Salvation Army for only a buck! 



Also picked up these 2 Slimer Ghostbusters glasses. MINT. Already have one, but Slimer is my fav. 


Also picked up some Pyrex pieces. 

Spring Blossom Green & Zodiac.
Zodiac isn't in the mintiness of shape, but I doubt I'll see one again besides on eBay.



Fire King white swirl bowls seem to be plentiful, found another one, maybe the larger or second largest in the set? Anyways, here it is next to one of the ones I found last week.

I'm going camping at The Pinery here in Ontario just after my birthday, so this vintage Transformers sleeping bag will come in handy, only $4.99. 


If anyone is able to help with a blog redesign, I'd really love some help. Sir Thrift-A-Lot hasn't had any changes since it's birthday (okay, maybe a column has gotten a little larger, but that's about it).

  5. Stop it with that Popples Cake Pan!!! Too Cute!
    Great job on your Pyrex today too. I found a minty 441 black and white gooseberry bowl at the Goodwill tonight for $1.99, so that was fun!

  7. Good for you finding the Zodiac casserole in decent shape! I saw one at a garage sale in April and didn't buy it. The condition was not very good- now I wonder if I should have forked over the cash ($5)?

      If it wasn't very good condition, don't worry about it. You'll find another one!

  11. TURQUOISE?! Holy Sh*t! What a find, i've never seen or heard tell about anything like that. Do you like your Zodiac? I've had 3 that i've given away as gifts, I always want to make something in them and then watch "Hair" or just dance around like a hippie to the Soundtrack.

    1. LOL
      Actually, the Zodiac is ok (lol), a little dark for my tastes, but I'm absolutely in love with the Turquoise Gooseberry.

  12. Wow love this post because I've never seen that Cinderella bowl and I've never seen the Zodiac bowls. You learn something everyday. Great finds! :)
