Thriftasaurus #103

Thriftasaurus #103!

Good evening thrifters! Thanks for coming to this late THRIFTASAURUS party! I guess I'm taking after my long time friend of 16 years (more than half my life!) who is always late & staying true to herself, was even late for her own wedding yesterday! Love her!

I had a week full of amazing finds. There weren't many, but they were high quality. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen quick in store shots of a few of them or a few pictures of a couple others that I pulled from Google to guage the value of (Instagram wasn't any help). 


For me, Jadeite is a rarity in the thrifts around here. When you can find it in an antique market, it's priced like gold. In all my years of collecting, I have seen Jadeite 2 times before, so I get pretty excited when I find it. I found a Jadeite bowl that I promptly broke in my shopping basket & another time a Jadeite mug in the case for $10 (used my 30% discount card). When I found that Jadeite bowl, though, I also bought 2 items that sold for over $70. I ended up being able to buy 5 or 6 Jadeite bowls from a lot on eBay that ended up in the end costing just over $5 each after shipping. 
Anyways... I stepped into the thrift & there were to Jadeite mugs for $1.49 each. I know, right? I thought my days of walking into a store & finding any vintage dishware were over & that my only hope was finding it fresh off the cart!

Later, in another thrift... appears this vintage Jadeite flour shaker! WOW! & people say Value Village is a scam! *shakes head* 

Speaking of fresh of the cart... this was fresh off the cart. I almost missed this mint daisy divided dish. I looked the cart over, didn't see a thing, went down the aisle, came back up the other aisle & decided I should peak again & it was inside something else... 

I went to a flea market when I went camping at The Pinery in Grand Bend last weekend. I had went before & it wasn't that exciting, it was a little better this time, however some of the prices... just weren't going to pay. Not a lot of Pyrex, no surprise. Overpriced Jadeite that made me actually LOL. 
I got these Holt Howard tea light holders.
& this little vintage Easter bunny, who is missing the rest of his train. 
But that's alright. 

Also found an ET button & a NIP Goosebumps hologram keychain. Goooosssseebumps. The show used to freak me out after to, 4:30 Est & I would have to lock myself in my moms room until she can home an hour later, but couldn't resist! Loved RL Stine.

I also found a small hoard of 1980's Coke cans in St. Jacobs Antique Market. I have been to it once before, about 3 years ago... when it had a Moon Deco Pyrex for $100. Yup, still there. They moved it from a shelf to a case, though. That's progress! I'm going to do a small post on the Coke cans another day (maybe next Thriftasaurus... I feel like my good luck has run out for a few weeks) because there are so many!

Thanks for checking out Thriftasaurus this week! Coming at ya from the bus...

  2. Wow, You did great! Love that sweet bunny, but amazed at the jadeite...woohoo for you! I have only found a few pieces at thrifty prices myself, and I remember my heart pounding each time. :)

    Thanks for hosting, finally got a new post done and will be linking up. Showing off my sweet vintage train case.

  3. Seriously great finds. Flour Shaker - big WOW.

  4. I actually made a trip to the thrift store! I parked Hubs at the door on a bench and spent a half hour. I found two glasses for fall and five tops to wear!! I haven't had any time to thrift with all my caregiving so you know it was heaven! When I get a photo, I'll join the party!

  5. Flour shaker ~ Pink Pyrex .... can't decide which one I love more! Great finds!!

  8. So jealous of your jadeite finds! I've only found one jadeite bowl so far and would love to find that much reasonably priced jadeite. Great finds!

  9. I love the Jadeite. I don't find it any more at all. The shaker is awesome!

  10. Jadeite and pink Pyrex? This looks like a Thrifter Sister post!

    Glad you got to it all before the die hard dealers. Beating them is almost as good as the finds themselves.
