Thriftosaurus Thrift Haul Link Up!
I've been a busy little thrifter this past week, thrifting in the ghetto, thrifting in the rain, even dabbling in the antique markets. I've crossed one item off my checklist & I think I've found one of my favourite items of the year. So many excellent finds this week!
I found these 1950's Herb Gardener glasses at Value Village for $1.49 each. Such excellent condition! I found 2 of each glass. They say, "I'm so smart I make myself sick", "I'm sorry" & "It's about time you found out that I was fascinating."
I've only seen such canisters below once, yellow, in an antique market, just one. I passed. I think before I started collecting them there was a set of turquoise I passed on, too. The salt & pepper shakers are boyfriend approved. They have now become the only set of about 50-60 that we use.
Dolly Parton vinyl featuring one of my favourite Dolly songs - Jolene along with some retro greeting cards that were $2 for the lot - couldn't say no.
Crossed off my thrift want list - a vintage first aid kit for the car, for those long road trips & excellent for next years camping trips. This winters want list includes a tent, tarps & other camping gear. It gives my boyfriend something to look for while I'm browsing the linens & housewares. I believe I might have overpaid for this... oh well.
Of course, there be Pyrex. Some more black snowflake for my collection from the thrift (just the space saver - no lid) & from Value Village, Constellation Promotional Divided Dish, no lid, no handle, no nothing - just the dish.
One of my favourite finds this year! This bowling towel for 49cents. Absolutely gayish & absolutely retro. The guy has the greatest stache & the rainbow is absolutely perfect - 1980 from Master Industries, Inc.
Last week I found these white canisters, this week I found this greenish/turquoise one - Sugar. They also had the flour, but it was so scratched up.. all I could this was WTF happened to it. It was as if someone picked it up & rubbed it up against the pavement. Front & back. I picked up the towel, the canister & black snowflake at a shop I rarely ever buy anything at. I wasn't going to stop in, but the "you never know" entered my head & it was 5 minutes, if that, out of the way.
My thrifting will be minimal this week, just the usual after work trips to Goodwill, everyday is hit & miss, so fingers crossed.
Linkup for Thriftosaurus this week!
