Hey fellow shoppers! Hope everybody has had a fun, thrift filled week. I was out this week... just *shocked* at the number of dealers out there now. Certain stores that used to provide me with a bounty of beautiful goods now have a growing number of campers in the aisles attacking the bins like savages as soon as they are rolled out. It grosses me out. It's depressing that this is how you have to act in order to score some of the items I collect inside a thrift shop.
I did get lucky with a couple Pyrex finds this week (the above Snowflake divided was from weeks ago). They were scored at a shop without any campers (that day). The only other turquoise I have in the 400 series is another 401 - still working up to a full set.
I picked up some pretty good linens this week! About a yard & a little bit of 1980's Smurf fabric, 99cents... Transformers flat sheet from 1984 & a Pampers towel. I bought the Pampers towel mostly for it's nostalgic purpose, but I'll never underestimate it's intended purpose. I believe the towel is from the 1980's, probably a promotional item. I had this towel as a baby.
I love this Christmas table runner... is it vintage? The tag identifies it as made in W. Europe & the cleaning instructions are printed in German.
A couple smalls... 1991 DC Comics Batman ruler, eraser, sharpener & pencil case.. I kinda have a small pencil case collection (surprise!). A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles paper table cloth.. original price, $5.79. Back in the day, wouldn't that be kinda pricey?
A full set of vintage Valentines Day cards.
Well, I have a few more items.. but still got some cleaning up to do, trying to get some sanity in this household, so until next week!
