It was kind of a pain because Sister and I were driving separate cars so we decided to have her park off of the exits we were taking and hop into my car. When the Thrifter Sisters thrift, we have to stay together!
Alex was pretty excited when I told him I found another souvenir glass for my collection. Why would a 16 year old boy be excited for a vintage glass? It's from Oklahoma, the home of his favorite college football team. Yes, I know. We are from Oregon. We are not Duck fans. I actually love the faded out condition of this tin. It's perfect to hold clothespins outside. The pet food jars were from a recycle store. We went in looking for a faucet and came out with these jars instead. Talk about random.
I see these old thermoses quite a bit but have never picked any up because I haven't come across any that I liked. This one is perfect for my 4th of July decorating. The crazy little planter is the second one I have thrifted as is the egg tin.
When thrifting. I almost always find clothes for either myself or Miss Maddie. I just never share them because this blog is about vintage thrifting! But I am making this exception. I couldn't pass up this handmade little boy's western shirt. It is going straight into my Baby Box For Sisters Future Baby after it gets washed. Boy or girl, this is getting worn!
There is a certain Goodwill in a town off of the I5 corridor that always, and I mean always, has vintage glassware. Every single time I go, I find at least one piece. Well on Sunday, I found 6 pieces. My favorite is the turquoise instrument glass. I have nothing like it. My second favorite is the tall tumbler next to it. I love my vintage glasses but they are a little small to hold a proper Vodka & Lemonade. This will do the trick!
I am pretty sure that none of these items are old but something about the cherry coffee cup caught my eye. Maybe the vibrant colors? The eggs are a little Beatrix Potter-ish and they look pretty dang cute with the rest of my decorations.
We made one stop at an antique mall on our way home. Maddie found the Cappy book. I have never seen this book before and all of the photos of Cappy are fuzzy. It's so cute! She also collects these weird little mama and baby figurines. I think they are kind of creepy but she loves them. And tell me that you could pass up this cheerful little chick planter. Just look at that smile!
There was a whole display case full of these plastic candy holders by the register at the antique mall. I had to grab a few.
So this particular antique mall is my most favorite that I have ever been to and believe me, I have been to a lot! It's only 45 minutes from my house and I try and visit a couple of times a year. Want to know why? Not only is it huge and full of all of the vintage things that I love to collect, it has the largest selection of Pyrex that I have EVER seen! Every other booth has Pyrex in it and some are only Pyrex! Enough said.
So what kind of Pyrex Thrifter Sister would I be if I didn't come home with at least one piece?
Isn't she lovely? Isn't she wonderful? Sorry, whenever I look at her, that Stevie Wonder tune starts playing in my head. This is the Pink Stripe 402. I have the 401 so now all I need is the 403 and I'll have the whole set. Wish me luck. I will need it.
In a couple of weeks, this store will have their annual customer appreciation sale where every booth is 10-40% off. I could have waited to buy this but I know from past experience, this particular seller puts her booth at the lowest percentage off that she has to, 10%. Plus, I'm sure this beauty would have been gone by then. Oh the nightmares I would have had!
So that's all this Thrifter Sister picked up. But I can tell you that Hanna got some great stuff too. I'm sure she will be sharing it all with you soon.
I will be joining Sue for Rednesday & Suzanne for Vintage Thingie Thursday.
Until next time!
