Thriftasaurus #110


Thriftasaurus #110

Greetings everyone! I'm back from my trip home to the Windsor-Detroit Area. I thrifted down the 401 & visited an antique market in Michigan. The large Pyrex booth was no longer there, such disappointment, but booths charging $25 for a 502 Primary & a set of Cinderella Butterprint bowls for $135 were. Needless to say, no Pyrex came home with me! There was lots of vintage Christmas, 'tis the season. So that did come home with me! 

All that Christmas is still packed away, so enjoy the kneehuggers I bought on eBay! These were BIN for $14.99, free shipping. 


These were a promotional item & were once given away if you paid shipping only, at that time I got a set new in the box. I think it was 4 per family. At the time they were selling for $100 NIB on eBay. You can still sell them for like $65 NIB on eBay, so when we saw these at the antique market, we bought them. Don't know if these will sell used, but we'll try! We have a buyer if they don't sell that will buy for just a few dollars over cost that we know, so at least we'll make a couple bucks. 




If you are on my instagram, you already know about my find that was I was super psyched about. My Catherineholm pot for $4.99 at Value Village.


I also found another pack of unopened vintage Halloween treat bags at the thrift!


Weird to walk into a thrift store late, late in the evening & find a piece of Pyrex that isn't Old Orchard or Forest Fancies or that hasn't been dishwashered to death, plus, I don't think I have this... but I cannot be sure. 


I also rescued this Santa for $4. I need him for my Santa collection. I can't wait to bring out the Christmas, but I am still trying to get stuff organized from when I moved into our place in June or May or whenever, LOL. 


Hope you had some fabulous stuff to share! I've got more to share (of course), but it's all waiting to be unpacked...

thrift on!

  1. ohh nice cathrineholm find! I love the orange color. I found 3 cathrineholm pieces at savers once and was so excited. I also love the kneehuggers, I want one so bad! They're so kitschy and festive.

  2. I never knew I needed a piece of Cathrineholm until I saw your post on IG. That is awesome!! Can't wait to see all of your Christmas decorations. I've been getting mine out a little bit every day. It's freaking time consuming!

  5. I am so jealous of you Cathrineholm find!!!! I have come to the conclusion that I will never own any unless I splurge on a piece online :(

  7. I also must chime-in on the awesomeness of the Catherine Holm pot. I have a large green one and have been looking for more for years with no luck at almost any price.

  8. I told you....do not waste your time on Thrift stores in the Detroit area, go to the garage sales only when you are in that area. Message me and I will tell you what suburbs to hit. I am heading up there, from Florida, next year, to go garage sale shopping. I didn't go to any thrift stores last time I was there, the garage sales were so good that I didn't bother thrifting.

  9. $4.99? amazeballs! i dread the day that value village catches on to catherineholm and all enamelware and jacks up the prices like they did with all pyrex. ;)
