I hadn't hit my usual thrift stores since before Christmas, yesterday I took off for the city - it was disheartening - I went to my four spots, which by the way are all on the same street, you can really get the disappointment over quickly - and I was disappointed, not a thing to be had - it was so bad!!! The stores were quite bare of the things that I like to look at - not a nice collectible, not a Vera scarf, not a scrap of Christmas left over. So, I headed out to my last chance spot which is about 10 minutes out of town - I actually bought something out there and to make my post, a more worthwhile, I took some pictures of things I saw there.
Why do I like these little fridgies so much?? Really, what am I going to do with them all!! I just can't leave any fridgie behind, I had to bring these two from the Homestead set home with me!!
See what I mean - that's twenty little 501's that I have!!!
If you follow me on Instagram, you saw these last night - follow me right here - Instagram is the best best of my phone, there's new people to follow every day and just no end to the pictures!! So, this bunch of miniature forks, knives and spoons were wrapped up in an elastic in a jar - I really had no business buying these little Made in Japan beauties, I've found a couple of sets before, gave one away, sold another one - I guess I better keep these ones!!
How cute is this hot plate?
I sure didn't break the bank on those purchases, I have been thinking about something I saw though, keep reading....
I have a couple of pieces of JAJ Toledo, I don't need anymore, but I nearly took the Pyrex custard cups, I have custard cups that were Mom's, these were a bit different, I held them for a while but put them back down! Hah!!
That happy face jar was just hoping I was going to take him home!!! The made in Japan canisters were very nice but not a whole set. The Easter bunny cookie jar was huge - you'd need a large batch to fill that guy.
I stared at these glasses, I thought they were a bit strange, but I feel now that I should have bought them - what do you think?
It's Cave People, Aladdin and more - I know they're old and I know somebody is going to tell me I shouldn't have left them there and that's going to make me regret leaving them behind!! They're different!!
