There weren't a whole lot of sales to head out to yesterday so Maddie and I decided to do a little thrifting. Alex had the day off from work and he and his friends took over my driveway for an impromptu car wash so I figured it would just be best if we steered clear of the chaos for a while. We didn't do too bad and I got to spend some one on one time with my girl.
Maddie spotted these two green 403 bowls right away. They were actually taped together and sold as a set. They are the older ones without the numbers.
I am not an expert on milk glass at all. I have absolutely no idea if this is old or a reproduction. It isn't marked. But it will look so pretty filled with flowers, don't you think?
I am not supposed to be buying coffee cups at the thrifts! I have boxes of them either set aside for eBay or our next garage sale. But the color of these Rio Stoneware mugs caught my eye and they are a really good size. That's my problem with the vintage mugs. They are so small. I need a BIG cup of coffee.
I'm still collecting the Royal China Jeanette pie plates. I pass them up all the time because I have most of them. I think the blueberry one may complete my collection.
It's actually been a little while since I have found any decently priced vintage sheets. They are another one of those things that the thrifts are catching on to and upping the price on. I found both of these with the half off color tag which put them back to the way they were priced 6 months ago.
Maddie found this spooky lady in with the office/crafting supplies at Goodwill. It's a reproduction but cute just the same.
My favorite finds of the day! SVDP had these books on the shelf where they put all of the books that they think are special enough to not mix in with the gobs of other books they have. Well, for once they were right! These are special and way below the retail prices. I got each one for $2.99! I plan on doing a little hanging out on the patio today with these.
Today would have been my Grandpa Earl's 92nd birthday. He passed away last year and we were all so lucky to have had him in our lives for so long.
I've got one estate sale to head to this morning. It's actually right down the road from my house. They yard is always packed with what looks to be junk but I spotted some vintage candle blow molds in the rubble when I drove by last night so I definitely think it's worth checking out!
