A Little Sunday Thriftin'

Since I've been more focused on getting my house ready to put on the market, I haven't done a ton of junk hunting lately.  However, Sunday afternoon, while I was waiting for the fresh coat of paint in my kitchen to dry so that I could apply another, I decided to do a little thrifting with mom.  We hit 3 different flea markets.  The first was a bust.  The second we found a few things.  The third was a success.  After that we went to the Goodwill Outlet to see if we could come home with anything.  I haven't been in a regular Goodwill in ages, since they basically don't put any of the vintage stuff out anymore.  However, I still have a little luck at the Outlet.  

So, here's what I came home with:

 All of these pieces came from the 3rd flea market we went to.  Told you it was a success!  I haven't found this much Pyrex in one day in a long time.  Let alone in one flea market!  I also found this Pepsi crate in that same flea market.

The wishing well chalkware piece is a bank.  For $2, I thought it was quirky and I'd take a chance on it.  The delphite shaker matches one I already have.  The thermos is in pristine condition and pretty cute.  I found those 3 things at the 2nd flea market.  The Anesco camera mom found in one of the bins at the Outlet.  The 2 rolling pins - one came from the 2nd flea market and the other from the Outlet.  I know I've been saying it, but I'll say it again - I can't seem to keep old wood tennis racquets and rolling pins in stock!

I found both doilies and the vintage pillowcase at the outlet.  They're pretty pristine for sitting in a bin with a bunch of other linens and clothes.  The Bride and Groom champagne glasses came from the 2nd flea market.  They were TEN CENTS EACH!  How could I pass that up?  We probably won't use them to actually drink out of at the wedding, but they'll look super cute just sitting on the table!

Mom found this empty Shiny Brite box in one of the bins at the Outlet.  I will ALWAYS buy empty boxes, since I seem to acquire so many ornaments without boxes.  This just helps resell them easier.  I found this roll of tickets at the 3rd flea market for a buck.  Couldn't pass it up, since I've been using them to make my booth tags.  That's cheaper than a box of 100 Avery hang tags from WalMart that I usually use.  Think they cost about $2/box.  These may take a little more work, but they're cute!

That's it for this week's finds!  It's finally starting to thaw out here.  We're supposed to be in the 50s all week.  Most of the snow is now gone.  Hopefully that means GARAGE SALE SEASON!  You better believe I'm going to start browsing Craigslist more frequently.  It was about this time last year that I got that amazing suitcase haul.  I hope the rest of you are thawing out too.  Can't wait to see the amazing hauls you guys start coming home with.

  1. I see lots of Pyrex here in Oregon in a variety of colors!!!

  2. 88 today!!!! Yippee! We will pay for it later, but enjoyed it while it lasted. Love the blue shaker, rolling pins (I sell a bunch of the child-size ones with red handles - keep your eye out), and the crate. Pretty great haul for doing it in between painting.

  3. Those glasses will be cute at your wedding. Good score on the pyrex! I would have to buy all your rolling pins, one of my many collections ;)

  4. The third time is a charm, good to see that you were able to find some goodies. I think the camera is my favorite. Thanks for sharing your finds at Vintage Inspiration Party.

  5. Love that little pink Pyrex refrigerator dish! The doilies are lovely -- I always admire the work involved in crocheting them! The Goodwill near me has decided to have a "vintage" section and increased prices -- no more thrill of the hunt there :(

  6. What a great Pyrex haul Melissa! Makes me want to jump in the car and head to a goodwill. lol! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
