Sir Thrift-A-Lot: Flea Market Finds

Last weekend I went to Detroit Electronic Music Festival (DEMF) in Hart Plaza downtown Detroit & along the way, I stopped at a few thrifts picking up a few fab finds along the way, they aren't all included here, I'll have to do another post. 

The music from DEMF is so loud that you can feel the bass & the music is even danceable from the Windsor side of the river. My sister, my fiance & me at DEMF - next year will be even more amazing. Doesn't the guy in the background look like a cardboard cutout?

I picked up those 1980s toys from a yard sale across the street from my house yesterday. The sale usually happens the weekend before Toronto Pride, but they had it a month early & I wound up upon it while walking my dog. I'm in love with the Gremlin - only $1! - & I can't wait to clean him up & get him on my toyish bookshelf in my bedroom. I only found one intriguing bowl, the smallest of the Fire King nesting Tulip set & just like many yard sales downtown, it had the "collectable" price - it was $20!
There wasn't as much Pyrex as I had hoped along the way & in Windsor, but I am still happy. I met up with someone off eBay to pick up this lovely set of Butterprint fridgies - I paid $35 & I am quite happy! My Butterprint fridgies are piling up 503 (4), 502 (3), 501 (8) - all have lids, except one of the 502's which I also found on the way to Windsor, along with this 503 & this great Gooseberry! Both were missing lids, but luckily, I stockpile whenever I see them. The two turquoise with the snowflakes were picked up on Friday, both for $3.99. I've found it quite hard to find divided casserole & casserole lids - 470-c & 503 lids seem the most plentiful.  This Hazel Atlas mug is just PERFECT. It was $1.99, but I've never found a Hazel mug that was in purchasable condition. If I drank tea, I'd use it. So this is gonna be my Neocitran mug when I'm sick.

These retro mushroom glasses are absolutely amazing! From Salvation Army in Windsor, each one was 99cents. 

Another drinking glass - Miss Piggy. Been seeing a lot of her lately.

Come back a little later this week, I'm going to post a few more of my finds from last week!

Linking up with Her Library Adventures for Flea Market Finds.


  1. The mushroom glasses are indeed amazing! Never spotted anything like them. The Hazel Atlas mugs is pretty great, too.

  2. Thanks Heather! Awhile ago I found two orange & yellow glass, but they don't compare to these mushroom ones.

  3. So jealous of all your amazing and groovy pop culture finds as always! :)
