Welcome to Thriftasaurus. I hope you join us & show off some of your amazing thrift, yard sale, antiquing & other second hand finds!
The thrifts this week were pretty lacking in the Toronto area, which is OK, I guess because they have been pretty good to me lately, don't you think? We took this past Saturday to go to a couple of little antique malls we know, along with 2 thrift stores I like that I don't get to often.
The biggest bargin was this 50% off Fire King bowl costing me only $2.50. This is from the antique market that peddles bargain containers of salsa, store brand oatmeal (that has been there for months - ew!) & half used containers of cat litter. We were also wrestling with the idea of buying a wine fridge for $15 - it worked & was in mint condition, but then we thought about the hydro bill & the fact that we can walk 10 steps to the fridge...
Despite this market being "junky", the 2 times I have been here, I have found some nice items. I also found these Pyrex pieces here. I just have to say, I really love refrigerator dishes. A lot. I also have to say, I love space savers. A lot. This one, is a JAJ Snowflake, so it's a bit rounded. I need a lid. I am confident I will find one - hopefully before Christmas! I paid $8, no tax. Good price?
Also found these New Kids On The Block dolls. My fiance complains about the amount of items we have in the home & as I am paying for the stuff, I only had Joe & he said, "did you see the other doll?" & he ran & got it, lol. Really... you're complaining, but running to get me a NKOTB doll? Silly boy.
Oh deer, pure cuteness.
Had to get this towel, loved it!
Some vintage Christmas! Cute mugs for white hot chocolate & whipped cream with a cute little vintage Santa. Mugs are made in Japan. I found a similar decanter, with polka dot pattern, but I guess after seeing someone else buy this recently it's called a Houndstooth decanter. $1.99 with lid, couldn't pass. Also couldn't pass on the egg jar. Now all I need is a few light bulb jars.
I found these 2 cute Christmas tea towels - does anyone know the maker (took a photo, but no clue what it says).
That's all this week, looking forward to seeing all the treasures everybody has acquired this week!
I won't be going tomorrow, but to everybody who is going to the Value Village sale in Canada tomorrow - Happy Hunting.
