Thriftosaurus Thrift Haul Linkup!

My new linkup, since I miss the linkups so much.

Anyways, I started last week, but gonna call it Thriftosaurus Thrift Haul Linkup. Fun? 

Well, today I went on a search for work pants. I'll never break & pay full price for a pair of work pants. I don't know why. Maybe because I can spend that difference on some well deserved antique mall goods? Well, I just can't do it. Currently, my fly won't stay up at work. It'll be up & 5 minutes later, I'll feel a breeze & it will have fallen down. Like 5 months ago, the zipper broke off. So, yea, time to search out pants. Which we tried to do today. I was vomiting in Goodwill bags, my boyfriends stomach was killing him... we were quite the pair today. Like 5 or 6 stores, I find a perfect pair... Goodwill (actually, gonna go with what I read some other blogger call it) Gougewill was charging $26.06 for this pair of used, donated pants! COME ON. My jaw literally dropped to the floor. Craziness. Especially since you can buy a nice pair of pants for $29.99 at Winners/Marshall's. Just... wow. I guess they aren't so bad with their housewares. I don't venture in the clothing department much.

I did some some great stuff, though!

This 1964 Mattel Barbie, Ken & Midge binder. You'd think with back to school, vintage enthusiasts this would have been long gone, lucky for me it was only $2.02. You don't find stuff like this too often around here. 


Some Pyrex, of course. Homestead, not a favourite of mine, but I did grow up with the Cinderella bowls. However, this is one piece I won't be afraid to use/break. Unlike this vintage 1961 promotional Pyrex Gourmet Cinderella Round Casserole. 



I picked up this set of cute vintage bowls. Don't know a maker or anything about them. Just thought they were a cute set & would make a wonderful addition to a future booth/shop. Do you like? 




Also a lil' Pyrex container. 99cents.

  2. I love the Pyrex Store n See. Would you believe that I saw one for sale at an antique mall today for $7? I couldn't believe my eyes...especially cos a booth right down the aisle only ("only") wanted $3 for the same one.

  3. That binder is just so cute - just like the Barbie cases.

    What luck to find the promotional - it makes you giddy when you come home with something like that - totally unexpected - I felt that way with my pink fridgies!!!

    1. Just like the Barbie case indeed, but worth a bunch more - $115.99, one with the exact same graphic sold on eBay. Only Barbie binder on eBay (vintage).

      I'd rather have the pink fridgies. Wanna trade? LOL.

  6. $26 for used pants!? That's insane. How did they get that figure? The Goodwills near me are fairly priced, especially on clothing. Most clothes, unless they're new from a retail donation or designer are a flat rate. $3.50 for a shirt $4 for pants, etc. I don't get that $26 price tag at all... it's like a bizarro-thrift...where everything is backwards.

  7. Man, Goodwill pisses me off! Half the time mine don't have anything good, and when they do it costs a bagillion dollars! I have much better luck at the ARC, even though they have been getting a little nutty with the prices lately too. Good lucky on your quest for britches!
