During the Summer, I don't go to the thrifts as often as I do during any other time of year. For one thing, I usually can get my fix from the numerous sales that I go to every weekend. I also spend a huge amount of time outside catching up on my reading list and just being lazy. Hey, they don't call it the lazy days of Summer for nothing, right? But for some reason, the sales have been pretty blah this year. Nothing compared to last year, that's for sure. So I took some time to head out to the thrifts today to see what I could find and hopefully scratch that little itch that's been bothering me.
I love to browse through decorating books to get ideas. I already had the Shabby Chic book so this one will go to Sister.
I picked up this atomic era coffee pot and warmer for really cheap. Like cheap enough to make it worth my while to try and sell it.
These glasses and turquoise pottery cup were in the cart of things waiting to be shelved. The glasses aren't old but they are a really good size for ice tea and I won't freak out if I take them outside and they get broken.
I hit the jackpot on vintage pillowcases at two different thrifts. It's been a while since I've found any.
Mod Kitchen is one of Hanna's favorite patterns of Pyrex and now thanks to a recent donation to my local Goodwill by someone who is obviously unaware of how collectible Pyrex can be, I now have my own piece!
Now for a late find that also fits in with today's finds.
A few weeks ago, on my birthday to be exact, I found this beauty at St. Vinnie's
An Embroidery 443 Promotional Cinderella Bowl! I was super excited to find this even though I already had one that I found last year.
Then today, at a completely different St. Vinnie's, I stumbled upon this
No readers, you are not seeing double. And just in case you think I might be trying to pull a fast one on you
Two Embroidery bowls found within weeks of each other at two entirely different SVDP's. What are the odds of that?
Hmmmmm, I may have to get my butt out of the lounge chair on the patio and hit up the thrifts a little more this Summer. What do you think?
I'm going to head to the following parties. Hope to see you there!
