Lighters, Pyrex & Lids - Oh My!

A few more recent finds from the mean streets of Toronto...

Some funky retro '80s lighters from a nice vintage shop, $5 a pop, but I didn't want to leave the cassette one behind & the compact one made a great gift - :p. Don't you just love them?

I found a nice lid at Value Village for a a 470-C for $1.99 - the same Value Village I found a lid for 503 refrigerator dish & an hour later I found an aqua 503 refrigerator dish at Goodwill! Well, this time about an hour after finding the lid I found these two fabulous Town & Country (472, 471) pieces, it isn't the right lid, but I definitely hope this is a new trend. The lid will go greatly on my 470-C Spring Blossom that is in my display case.

My last item that I bring you is something I found many months ago, waaaay back in August on the way home from The Toronto Zoo - a cup stand. Not vintage, still displaying the tag on the bottom from Homesense, it is still stylin' & only displaying the set of Tulip Termocrisa mugs I got for a buck each for the picture. They are usually just sitting in my cupboard.

    & thanks guys! The lights are way cool. They have a stash of others & I'm thinking on heading back. They have more compact ones, but not this colour.
