WOW. Thrifting in these parts has been WEAK this week. 7 stores, 4 daily trips to my local Goodwill & I only picked up 2 small things!
This Thirst Aid glass for 99cents.
This glass was worth the trip. My fiance & I have only ever had 4 "big fights" (that's about 1 a year..) & 2 of them revolved around Thirst Aid glasses. He accidentally knocked this exact glass out of the cupboard while he was doing dishes (dishes!? I'm just as shocked as you are.) & I flipped out on him. I ended up calling him stupid, he slammed what was left of the glass on the ground & it escalated from there. The second fight about the Thirst Aid glasses was when I bought 2 martini glasses from Goodwill & he cleaned the apartment for once.. why, I don't know, he never cleans, I'm Molly Maid & I'm not very good at it, & it was still wrapped in the the paper in the bag, the other one was on the counter.. he threw garbage in the bag & down the shoot it went. He went as far as to ask the security guard to let him into where the garbage drops so he can search for the glass. It took over 2 years, but I once again have a set of 6! Still looking for a second martini glass though...
And this Easter card for 29cents. "Cards By Kay", made in Canada. I love these retro cards! I don't have many, if any, retro/vintage Easter cards.

And I was digging through some boxes & came across these amazing vintage Jingle Bells from Eaton's (original 25cents). Had to share!
Here is what I didn't buy at the thrift store...
This groovy, retro owl candle for $6.06. I really don't know what I'd do with the hunk of wax. I have another large candle & it discolours everything. Cute, tho.
I spy with my little eye 5 too many Glasbake dishes. The exact same dish, exact same condition, priced the exact same day - $2.02 & $3.03.
Hope everyone is having a great week! See you Sunday for Thriftasaurus!
