I haven't been hitting the thrift stores too hard this past week - I'm going away kinda soon, have taken on an extra shift at work & I am saving some cash to hit up foreign thrift stores & antique markets to the dismay of my boyfriend.
I picked this deer up at a thrift shop, same thrift shop I picked up the Spring Blossom Green Pyrex dishes. I was viewing retroresue's flickr stream after they commented on one of my flickr photos & came across the deer. I thought I would have a hell of a time figuring out what it is, but I guess not, guess it's a Jeannette powder jar. Funny, too. At another thrift shop, same chain, across the city, I saw the dog one, just the lid, priced a $1.00 higher.
I've never seen a complete set of Fire King bowls (of this type). When I was heading to the books at a Goodwill, the clerk oblivious that I was there, wheeled the card out & stopped it right infront of me & walked to the front of the store. I came face to face with the bowls. I am really found of the grey one. I'm so bad at taking photos of stacked bowls... need to work on that! So here they are..
My research says that these glasses are from the 1940's. I bought a mint set of 6 for $3.99. A seller on Kijiji is selling this hula hoop children glass in red & black for $20 & online on eBay in yellow for about $15.
That's it for me this week. A tiny trip planned for Friday, hope it yields something riveting.
Is anyone else's Savers/Value Village now pricing Pyrex & the like like this? I know people complained on Facebook & looks like they do listen (about some things, anyways). A few of the stores have started too.. I haven't noticed at others because I haven't found any Pyrex there!
Link up below if you've found anything at the thrifts, yard sales, estate sales, in the garbage, on the bus..
