Thriftasaurus Thrift Haul Linkup

This week in...
Thriftasaurus


If you're a regular reader you might recognize some of the items I'm posting today, 3 of the items I'm posting today, I've found in the past month.

About a month ago I found a Black Snowflake Pyrex Space Saver at Salvation Army. A Salvation Army that normally has the worst merch ever. Times have changed. When I found the first one, it was tucked in a corner under another dish, it was filthy. I found my new Black Snowflake under the same circumstances in the same store! Also found this 503 Yellow refrigerator dish from the same shop. Have only ever found 1 other 503 at a thrift with a lid. I realize now that I should have cleaned the snowflakes before photographing.



Tupperware lovers, just out of curiosity, what year is this from? I've got a couple other pieces like this, just wondering. 


I found a beautiful set of red canisters the other week & a while ago I find quite a similar pair of yellow canisters - except they were 10x the price. I paid $2.99 for these. Not in tip-top shape, but that's fine. My other set has a mismatched lid. 


I don't have a data plan // smart phone // whatever, so I still have to send my trusty fiance texts & have him look up some items that I am not sure if they will sell or not. Other times I just go with my gut. I saw this unused towel set & asked him to check online.. nothing, but he told me to get it. Little did I know he was a Mighty Ducks fan growing up. I think he wants to keep them. 


I've wanted a good, affordable set of these mugs for awhile. Glad I finally found a pair.    


Both shortly for sale on my eBay page - a Strawberry Shortcake stationary (not complete, but will be pairing with some vintage, scented Strawberry Shortcake cards) & some NIP Dick Tracy suspenders. 


Thanks for checking out my finds & thanks everybody for linking up last week. Can't wait to see what everybody has thrifted this week!

Also, I`ll be linking up with:

  5. Those mugs are just the greatest. And when it comes to Strawberry Shortcake, I really wish they would have brought her back the way she was....without the modern update to her look. I miss that poofy hat of hers!

    1. I don`t remember the mugs at all.. but I wasn`t drinking back then, lol.

      & as for the Pyrex - I think I find it just because I get out to much... haha.

  8. It must have been the universe rewarding us for being so patient, because I had the same thing this weekend. A normally terrible store where I never get anything actually had stuff! Great finds! Always love the canister sets you pick up.

    1. It`s got to be. When I walked into the shop I went into I sighed & was about to walk out - everything in the store clothing & linen wise was 99cents, so I thought everything else would be picked over too. Guess not!
