Sister has been planning on blogging for the last few days but she is knee deep in a project involving the removal and replacement of flooring due to an unfortunate bladder control problem of one of her furry friends (Hope of the Ghetto, aka Satan). So here I am to save the day and show you what I was able to find at the thrifts last week.
Among the millions of other things that I like to collect are Royal China Jeannette pie plates. I found this one at Goodwill and it is actually a cake plate. It is the first cake plate for me and already tucked away with the rest of my 4th of July decorations.
When I saw the Pyrex Red Leaf bread plate I was convinced that I was going to find more in all the millions of stacks of dishes at Goodwill but I was wrong. That's alright, though. One is definitely better than none! I liked the Bicentennial mug because I am a Bicentennial Baby (my birth certificate says so!).
This Metlox planter is HUGE!
If you know anything about me, you know I love donkey's so I obviously couldn't leave this behind. Both the Metlox and the donkey were in the display case at SVDP and priced pretty high. The nice guy working behind the counter told me that since they just came out of rotation, he would give them to me for 50% off. I didn't even have to ask!
It must have been my day for pottery. I picked up this USA Pottery pitcher at the Goodwill down the way from SVDP.
I found this Melmac serving bowl in the planter section at Goodwill with a dusty old spikey flower frog attached to the middle with silicone. I was able to save the bowl but not the flower frog which was a bummer because I collect those too! I had a few minutes before I was meeting Brian for lunch so I ran into Value Village even though I never, ever find anything there. Well lucky for me, I found this Made in Japan Santa mug. Evidently, they keep a small display of Christmas decor out year round. This brings the grand total to things I have found at Value Village to 2, the other being the Pyrex 402 bowl from the Blue Americana set. I just don't have the luck that some of you other bloggers have.
Did you all see these pretty 471's? I posted about them over at the Pyrex Collective 2. Head over there and check out the gorgeous stack photos!
I was up bright and early for the flea market this morning and found some great stuff. Stay tuned!
