This Week in Thrifting

Forest Fancies Bake Serve Store - I had the largest one but picked up the two smaller ones - now I have a set!

Shenandoah 401, 402, and 403

This is going to be cute for storing something!

Don't get too excited - these are not original Jadeite, I know this because one had a bar code sticker on the bottom.  I don't care - they're pretty nice.

Old magazines and a Better Homes and Gardens book.

A book for Holly

Who doesn't love Charlie Brown?  First time in paperback, original price - 60 cents.
And, how much did I pay for all those goodies shown above?  $12.
At another shop I paid $1 for these Glasbake  Mugs - the color on them is just about perfect!


My friend has one of these owl planters, actually, I think it might be the very same one.  I've wanted one ever since I spotted it.  Last summer I found one but only the top part, I bought it because I never thought I'd ever find one.   I did and this one is in mint condition - but I was almost too stupid to buy it - the price was $5,  which I thought was high, I left the store but came to my senses within half an hour.   Even my husband said it was a good price - I'm glad I went back!!



I went to about ten yard sales today and this is all I came home with, well, actually they were in  a box with other Christmas ornaments but they are pretty disgusting, one guy's neck is kind of wobbly, but I think he's fixable.  That's 25 cents spent today at yard sales, last week, 50 cents spent - not going to break the bank at this rate...

  1. You did well! I LOVE the Glasbake mugs. The colors are so pretty. Garage sales are getting a lot harder to find things at I think.
    I'm way behind on posting about my finds! I have to tell you about my Pyrex pieces from this morning. I found some fun ones at the flea market this morning. I'll post tomorrow!
