Thriftasaurus #102!

Thriftasaurus #102

Good day thrifters! Since I took last weekend off to attend my cousins funeral (again thank you everyone for the condolences, she was only 30 years old.. so it was pretty hard on the family) & I am going to start Thriftasaurus early this week!

My finds are BACKED UP! Trying to get all this stuff in order is hard, especially when I'm always out hunting for more. I'm always saying I'll take a week off, but I am always thinking, "what if I'm out there missing something amazing!?" I'm sure you all understand what I am talking about!!

This is the only piece of Pyrex I got the last time I went to Buffalo, to Antique World Flea Market (which I have to say again - sucked). I've wanted this piece for awhile, it was $10 or something? Dandelion Duet Divided Dish. They had a turquoise 404 for $8 from a flea vendor, but I passed it up since it wasn't *mint*, kinda regret it, but my boyfriend heard some girl yell, "OMG!! I've never seen a bowl that colour before! I'm getting it, I don't care how much it is." So, I bet she's going to treasure it more than I would have. 

I also picked up these pins, fifty cents each. I thought they would have been a lot more. Wish I had picked up a few more for my Instashop! The only one that'll end up there is the beer one.

You know, I don't care really if these bowling crying towels are vintage or made in China.. I love 'em. I can always use them as rags, dish towels, face clothes.. it's endless. I think they are kitschy. 

I also got these Pyrex Pixies. My first. Probably my last unless they are really cheap. I don't really get the point.

You may remember I got these beautiful, fun vintage glasses a couple weeks ago...

...well, I picked up these 3 glasses that match perfectly! The host & hostess can have the King & Queen & the guests can have the rest! They are even made by the same company, which I still have no idea how to identify. 

Happy Hunting!
I'll be going to an antique market tomorrow, just one.
I'm going camping, but the pup & the boy can only wait in the car/outside for so long together."> Thrifty Things Friday with Melissa's Antiques!



  1. Pixies are pretty highly coveted here in the states. I have several and love using them for individual mac & cheese and cobblers.

    Love those glasses! Hanna probably needs something like those since she has such a gambling problem :-)


  2. New to me is the Pixie Pyrex. Have a great camping holiday. Thanks for Thirftasaurus no. 102.

  3. I love that pin with the weird guy with the red hair!

  4. Pixie Pyrex - I have got to start investigating Pyrex. Thanks for hosting. I continue to keep your family in my prayers.

  5. I've never seen the Pyrex pixies, kinda cute! Love the Pyrex piece you got and at a GREAT price. Love the glasses and those crying towels make me smile. Glad you are back and I hope your family is doing well after such a sad event.

  6. I never knew those were called Pyrex Pixies. You found some great stuff. So sorry for the death of your cousin. She was so young. Thank you for the party.

  7. I have one Pyrex Pixie - I use it for cut up fruit, I bought it because I had never seen one out there before.

    I have the same glasses as your last picture at the PEI house- Mom always had them, but they are juice size - mustard came in them with a plastic lid, I can still remember that. I was drinking out of those glasses just a few days ago....

  8. If you don't care for the Pixies , I'll get them off your hands in a second! I love those and use them for gratin dishes!

  9. I've never seen a Pixie! Or heard of one either! Love the glass set!

  10. I love Pyrex pixies! I've only ever found 2 in my 10+ years of junkin... in fact they were the same colors as yours! When you can find them, they sell pretty fast, I've noticed. Thanks for sharing @ TTF!
