Thriftosaurus & Large Haul!

Starting Thriftosaurus early this week because I'm so excited to show off my finds this week.


A sidebar ad on my Facebook told me my favourite shop in Kesington Market - 
Funky Junky - was closing up shop, everything in the store was 50% off & at the end of the month, everything left is going to be auctioned off. The next day, I made my boyfriend meet me after work. We stopped for churos, went to the shop & got our usual Kensignton indulgence - Big Fat Burrito.
Immediately after buying these, I had thrifters regret. The lettering is faded, they need to be cleaned & I feel like I might have bought them just because I felt I needed to buy them as one last hurrah. One canister has a different lid. They were $20. I'm still on the fence about them.


This shot glass set couldn't be any more perfect. My friend & I call ourselves Betty & Veronica... $1.99 with a regular price tag of $20. She's blonde, so she's Betty. I'm happy to be Veronica. 


This little vintage exercise book is just darling & at 69cents from Value Village, I couldn't say no. 



The only Pyrex of the week, a Butterfly Gold lid for $1.99 & a 402 Tan Stripe Pyrex bowl... pretty marked up with utensil marks, took it as a challenge. We'll see how it turns out. 



CB'er Anchor Hocking mug for less than a buck & a unopened package of the Masked Rider napkins, along with that Butterfly Gold lid. 


I was absolutely giddy when I spotted these in the store in a bag for $2.99... sad that they were shoved in a bag with a bunch of junk, which took a couple flea bites out of the toothpick holder, but the salt & pepper shakers made it out in mint condition. Are they Norcrest? And 5 Kimberly Fire King mugs.



A collection of things, 
a Star Wars Darth Vader glass from 1980 for 69cents.
a Crown jar, with original glass lid for $1.99.
a decanter (listed as crystal on eBay) for $2.49.
(all from Value Village).
I had seen a Crown jar my last visit home in Windsor, had wanted to buy it, but it didn't have a lid. Happy to have this one! 




Last finds of the week - New Kids on the Block 1990 Magic Summer tour cup from McDonalds with lid for 99cents (the one on the left). I bought the one on the right previously for a dime. 
And last item, a badge/pin/whateveryouwannacallit, that may one strike nostalgia with Canadians... Bi-Way! For those not in the know, Bi-Way was a chain of stores, now defunct, that carried discount basic apparel and general merch. 



Hope to see your thrifted finds!
Link up this week with THRIFTOSAURUS!

  2. Amazing haul this week! You got a really good deal on the Lustro Ware canister set. I paid $40.00 for mine at an estate sale. Be really careful when you wash them though. I cracked one of mine when I was drying it. Evidently the plastic gets pretty fragile with age. You will totally be able to get that Pyrex striped bowl perfectly clean. I buy Pyrex with black marks all the time and always get them clean. Let me know if you need any tips. I will be linking up with you tomorrow.

    1. Thanks for the tip about the Lustro Ware, I probably would have ended up cracking mine to bits.

      My boyfriend challenged me on the bowl. Will probably take it on on Friday. Will holler if I can't made it nice & shiny.

  7. Tons of fun stuff this week! I know what you mean about the canisters... I'm always so tempted, but usually they're just not worth it.

  8. What a haul! I have the biggest "flower" yellow canister in that set, and I hope the Pyrex cleans up. I laughed for quite a while when Iread the AE "Bloggers SVU" pictures at the end of the post, haha So true!

    1. Glad I could make someone laugh!

      Thanks, I hope the Pyrex cleans up too. If it does, it's going to open a while new "damaged" Pyrex world for me.

  9. "Uh Uh oh oh oh...the right stuff!" Sorry, I had to go there! I LOVE those NKOTB cups! Jordan was my favorite!
    DO NOT be on the fence about your new canisters! I would love to find a set of these anywhere that didn't charge an arm and a leg! I think they are awesome!
    Your birdies made me jealous! So adorable. :)

  12. Great score and price for the Vintage Stars Wars glass! My husband still has his along with a Miss. Piggy one! I nearly died when I saw the BI Way pin ~ that was my favourite store growing up. I couldn't wait for the weekly flyer to be delivered!
