I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was to find these Jadeite shakers and refrigerator dish at an estate sale last week. I was actually going for something else that I saw in the online photos and didn't get to these until about 10 minutes after the sale started. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT THEY WERE STILL THERE?!! Ready for the shocker? The shakers were $10 for the set and the dish was $8.00. Amazing. Those of you familiar with Jadeite know that these are excellent prices. A few days later, Sister & I were at the flea market and someone had the same set for sale for $85.00. I got the Alpine Chalet mug for a quarter. Love the cute graphics.
This is what I was going for first. Like I've said before, it's pretty hard to come by vintage Halloween so when I saw this in the photos, I knew I had to try and grab it. I wasn't the only one looking for it. I had one lady offer to buy it from me. This is not the first time this has happened.
I've picked up some amazingly bright and perfect vintage hand towels and tablecloths lately.
I got these for my fall decorating. There were tons of the cans of pumpkin seeds in the basement of the sale for $8.00 apiece! They were still full and sealed but I managed to find the one empty one in the bunch for a dollar.
My husband found the pink shaker at Goodwill. It's unmarked so I'm not exactly sure what it is or if it is even old. It's pretty (and pink!) so I better keep it. Want to hear something really bad? I can't remember where I got the vintage drinking glass and match holder.
I got this sheet music cover from the flea market. I thought the graphics were super cute and it would look really good framed in my kitchen.
I know in the beginning of my post I was complaining about the lack of good sales. After looking at all of this great stuff you are probably wondering what in the world I have to complain about. Yeah, you are all probably right.
I'm going to link up at the Thriftosaurus Thrift Haul party & with Sue for Rednesday. See you there!
Until next time...
PS: Everybody try and send Sister Hanna some good wishes. Her crazy dog Miss Piper Doodle head butted her the other day and she is really dizzy, nauseous, and has a possible concussion (waiting to hear back on the scan). I wish she was closer so I could take care of her!
