Hope you are having some better thrifting luck than me this week. I went to a few Goodwill's around my city both yesterday and today and I kid you not, I did not see one single piece of Pyrex. There is a major shortage going on here. So Sister, you are not missing anything. I promise. In the meanwhile, here are a few of my recent finds....
I found this turquoise fan shaped pottery vase at the Piccadilly Flea Market the last time I went. It is marked Delpha on the bottom along with 3-'57. I don't think that Delpha is a brand. I am pretty sure that it is the name of the person who made it. My husband, Brian found this Pink Daisy divided dish sans lid at an antique store for 6 bucks. I already have it with the lid but he knew not to pass up a piece of pink Pyrex in perfect condition. He's learning.
A few months ago, I found this Oregon State Capital carafe at Goodwill. A few days ago, I found all of the glasses at SVDP. I am a huge collector of vintage drinkware but these will have to go on eBay. I'm running out of cabinet space. Unless you want them, Sister?
Here are some vintage cookbooks I picked up here and there. Okay, now for a little venting. See the two on the top? Well evidently these were collectible and vintage enough for the animal rescue thrift store to put in a locked case. But why in the world would they put huge bright orange price stickers directly on the front cover? Although I tried very carefully to remove them, they still peeled some of the paper off. I tried to cover up the marks with a marker but you can still see them. Oh well. They are still cute.
Some cute trays that I picked up at an estate sale. The top one is actually a set of 5. I got all 6 trays for $1.00.
More estate sale goodies. I was extra excited to find the sifter because it has a turquoise handle!
And some SUPER CUTE Gurley candles for a quarter apiece! Not bad considering their original price was ten cents!
Now, onto something completely un-thrifting related
This readers is what my son, Alex, ate for breakfast. A huge slab of homemade strawberry cheesecake. FOR BREAKFAST! If I didn't love him so much, I'd hate him.
Until next time.....
