A shortage of items this week, considering I went to 11 thrift shops & 5 Antique Markets. Granted, one of them was going out of business & was empty. Competition too fierce? I'm getting too picky? That time of the year (it's still snowing here.. I was just outside & there were flakes coming down). & this week besides 3 regular day trips to Goodwill (where I found ET & a jacket), I didn't thrift for 7 days! That isn't like me at all..
ET was big this week. I picked up this figurine fresh out of the bin at Goodwill. At one of the antique markets I discovered a booth that I used to overlook because I thought it was all Star Wars items, but on the bottom shelf was a bunch of 1980's toys, pretty decently priced. I bought this ET linen for $3.. looks a little creepy. As well as these ET magnets from 1982, still in the package. & the kneehugger, paid a little more than I normally would, but was coming up so empty handed...
I'm not very big on clothes from the thrifts. I don't waste my time very often as I am a firm believer that they get picked over at warehouse sized sorting places by vintage pickers from vintage shops (and we don't have a shortage of those in Toronto) who pay a premium on them, especially after hearing that one shop has "secret picking places" & seeing photos of such warehouses on Kijiji in the city. Anyways, this coat was made in Canada by Shain. Look like it's never been worn. It's for myself. I love the way it looks. Doesn't fit right now.
It isn't a good week without some vintage greeting cards. Rust Craft, Cards by Kay, Hallmark... they're all here.
Some Pyrex. I picked up the Butterprint at the antique mall despite the chipped lid (I've got like a gazillion this size). This is an elusive size of dish for me & I think it's adorable. I had seen pie plates all the time last year, but thought WTF do I want one of these for.. well now I bake apple pies for my BF, so been looking for one. Found this dirt nasty one for $1.99.. we'll see how she cleans up. Another Horizon Blue, need one more to complete the set!
Another pic of the kneehugger cuz he's too cute.
I enjoy this 7-UP Uncola glasses, I think they are neat. & I do like this Dick Tracey glass. The glass is very thick.
Last find of the week, these toaster salt & pepper shakers. A set I've wanted to add for awhile. $5 at the market.
An egg lamp with feet! My third one.. too many?
Hope you all have a great thrifting week!
