VintageThrift Scores!

Some more vintage items from the slim pickin's in the area. Value Village is having a 50% off sale tomorrow, November 21st, so I'll probably take much of the week off from thrifting in their stores - much too much of a headache them 50% off days.

A 442 Gooseberry for my collection. Just saw a Gooseberry last night while watching Super 8 - keep your eyes open if you're watching the movie! $3.99 at Talize. Two more & my collection of Gooseberry Cinderella bowls is set.

Two great vintage tea towels. I wish my cat were as hip as the cat who modeled for this tea towel, Value Village & destined for the etsy shop. I love "BOWLER CRYING" towels, this one won't sop up anybody's tears, but was made in Poland if that's any consolation, only 49cents at Talize.

Picked up bymy bestie, Aggie, in Cambridge these beautiful pieces from the Butterprint Serve & Store set - #'s 472 & 473. They need a good scrubbing & I'd put the boyfriend to work if he wasn't so afraid of what I would do if he broke them. $3.99 & $4.99 is my memory serves me correctly & from Value Village. You're the best Aggie!

Joining up with...


  1. Love the Pyrex! I'm trying to resist the urge to collect it but it SCREAMS at me when I see it....

  2. I know how much everyone loves the Butterprint, and it seems like everyone finds them sometimes, but I have NEVER seen it myself! My sister was wanting some of it so I was really hoping to maybe pick up some fridgies for her before Christmas, hopefully my luck changes. You always have really great Pyrex finds!

  3. Also, the 50% off sale excludes housewares, so that's a dealbreaker for me!

  4. I love your tea towels. I collect those too! The butterprint pieces are also gorgeous--one of my faves.

  5. Tinker. Collect it - it's so much fun! You won't regret it. You'll regret passing up the stuff you've seen before though.

    Heather - thanks!

    Chelsea - hope your luck changes too, have my fingers & toes crossed. I love aqua & pink & fridgies, but rarely ever see it. Butterprint & Spring Blossom are plentiful here for some reason. Same with Woodland & Old Orchard, but I'm not a fan of Old Orchard & we have a set of nee Woodland given to us by my boyfriends mother.

  6. SixBalloons - I thought I had heard them say it included housewares over the loudspeaker at Value Village the other day - I was shocked since they never include it on 50% days & even commented to my friend. Upon reading your comment & looking it up I was wrong. So glad housewares wasn't included. I will thrift on!
