This time of year, I tend to buy a bit more online and in the antique malls than I normally would. I have a vintage itch that I just have got to scratch. Don't judge me! But seriously, the thought of having dig through so much junk at the thrifts in order to maybe find a single treasure coupled with the major lack of sales due to the season, makes me a little desperate. Now, don't go thinking I'm mortgaging the house and making Alex drop out of college in order to fund the necessary purchases. Oh no, I'm still a savvy little thrifer, even when I'm not actually thrifting.
A wonderful IG friend gave me the opportunity to purchase some of her amazing Pyrex Strategic Air Command plates. Aqua and stars? No way could I pass these up.
Do you guys know how long I have coveted this sweet tin? I'm so happy I didn't give in to the full retail prices in the antique malls during the holidays. After Christmas I got it for 50% off!
I did actually find something at the thrift recently. While on the hunt for a dresser, I took a quick peek in the holiday stuff and found the bunny candy container. The recipe box is full of handwritten recipes. I will never understand how someone can just donate such an amazing family heirloom.
I'm not one to pass up a vintage cake carrier that I didn't already have, even if I'm running out of room to display them! I love cover of this BH & G cookbook and was happy to add it to my collection. I really need to come up with a good way to display my cookbooks. They are so colorful!
My Snowflake collection is getting closer to completion. I found the 043 at my favorite local antique mall the last time Hanna was visiting.
One more bowl to go and I will have the Fire King Rainbow Swirl set completed. It will probably be the hardest one to find!
One of the things on my wish list for 2015 was a new shelf to display my vintage tablecloths.
It always feels so good to check things off of my wish list!
Linking up over at Sir Thrift-A-Lot. It's been a while!
Have an awesome week~
