My Mother-in-Law collects Aunt Jemima shakers and although these aren't old like most of her collection, she was still excited for me to find them for her. The squirrels look a little, uh, squirrely don't you think?
I found quite the stash of old cookbooks for 50 cents apiece. I love the graphics & illustrations the best. I have been on the hunt for the Pillsbury's Best Butter Cookie Cookbook for a while now and plan on trying out some of the recipes soon. Stay tuned!
There is this one booth at the flea market that looks like the guy goes into Goodwill and buys all of the things that us seasoned thrifters walk by and don't even give a second glance to. But every so often, he surprises me and has something good. Now I just need to find the 444 Ivy Cinderella bowl and I will have the complete chip & dip set.
So how crazy is it that Sister and I found the same Shawnee pixie planter a couple of weeks apart? I originally bought this for her but then remembered that she had found one at Goodwill. Lucky for me!
The last time I was at the flea market, I ran into the lady who I had bought some Archie glasses from a few months back. She told me she had more and would bring them next time. True to her word, she did! Now I have two of each in case of any mishaps!
There hasn't been a whole heck of a lot in the way of Pyrex at the flea market lately with the exception of the 441 Ivy bowl. But as I was walking out, I noticed the telltale color of a very rare set
I don't have to tell you that my heart skipped a beat when I spotted these. Now, I already have this set and you can read about how they were acquired here. It's actually a pretty funny story. Anyway, I just couldn't pass these up especially when I talked the lady down to a price that was literally 1/5 of what I paid for my other set. She said her husband had always disliked the "light blue" color of the bowls and put them in flea market pile. I am pretty sure she had no idea what she was getting rid of. These will be my workhorse bowls. I have been hesitant to use my other set because I am so afraid of breaking them. Now I have no excuse!
I'll tell you what, the flea market has not disappointed me at all lately! Knowing everything that I would have missed out on had I let a little cold stand in my way scares me a little bit. The flea market is in town again this weekend and you can bet that I will be one of the first in line!
