Thriftasaurus

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.

  4. I think you did pretty good!! I won't be at VV tomorrow either, I was there Saturday and there was not one thing I wanted to buy, so I don't think I'll be missing much!

    Thanks for hosting, I notice you're getting more people linking up every week, that's great!

  5. Love that Fire King bowl. I've never seen it before. Also, I'm sure my sister will also comment but she would love that deer! It looks like it's feeling kinda frisky:-)

    1. It totally does!

      I only noticed the bowl because I was looking at photos of bowls online to make "PYREX I WANT" list for my BF for his trip to a 53,000 SQ FT antique mall he was going to visit on his trip to Columbus for me!

      Tucked away behind a bunch of crap on a corner booth, everything was pretty much junk, but a pair of ugly '60s plastic yellow S&P shakers caught my attention & the rest is history.

  8. Haha! That towel is hilarious! Also loving the NKOTB dolls. I never got into them, but I remember everyone I knew had those back in the day. Loved the 90's!

    1. Thanks Farm Girl Pink...

      It's been years since I've seen a reasonably priced Fire King bowl in purchasable condition (well, besides the white swirl, but I don't count those).

  12. Love the Fire King bowl and the fridgies. I've never seen the logo on the tea-towels, but they sure are cute, and so is the little santa too!

  13. Hell yes on the owl, deer, and new kids on the block awesomeness! :D Though I love it all. Amazing scores, as always.

  14. I love the Christmas mugs! A cup of Joe during the winter will be much better when you use these mugs. Well, Christmas is coming again and I still have enough time to look for stuff like this. I guess I'll look for another antique shop that sells valuables like these. :)
