Hello fellow thrifters, hope everybody has had a good week. I picked up a few items, didn't do very well considering I went into 13 thrift stores this week & 2 antique markets, but I guess you win some you lose some. Although it's silly, I can't help be bothered by it.
Last week, I found a full box of vintage Valentines, I was lucky enough (a week later) to come across another box of the exact same ones! Just incase you don't believe me...
I did get a lot of compliments on this set of cards, if any other card collectors are interested in trading for them, please send me an email (my contact is in my profile). I am open to other trades besides cards - just take a look around my blog, see what my interests are.
Picked up a few more items in the card area, two vintage die-cut Valentines, one mechanical (clown) & the other is dated 1945. They were $1 for the lot. Some cat woman invitations from 1991 & some Cards by Kay & one lone Rust Craft.
These Pac-Man magnets are pretty neat. I believe they are from the cartoon show... that would make them not so common.
I will admit it. Growing up, I was a HUUUUUGE Marilyn Manson fan. Not the biggest I've ever met (one guy had 20+ Marilyn Manson tattoos & met the band one day & they all signed his body & he got it tattooed the next day). I had always wanted this particular shirt, made during Manson's height of popularity, but could never find it.. this was back before I had the internet. Well, unworn. Lucky, I guess. I always find it weird that there is always just one band shirt out of like 400 shirts. Or one vintage shirt.
Some Snowflake Pyrex (the bottom one, JAJ). The black space saver, some Toronto shoppers may have seen it, but I couldn't pass it up for a couple bucks & the metal lid. I've coveted one of those metal lids for some reason for awhile & it would work perfectly for display mode, too! One my way to completing.. got the black, was just put away.
I don't collect Coca-Cola stuff really, just these really neat cans.. I guess they are from the 1980's? I got two more (the ones in the middle). I'm very excited. There are still more out there to complete my collection.
This is just a hilarious piece of 1990's nostalgia for me (hopefully you too!). Remember these bracelets? The rings (which were rarer?). I bought a bag of junk for $2 & this was unknowingly in there. I am currently teasing my boyfriend with it.
That's it for me, can't wait to see what you've dug up this week!
