Things must definitely be picking up at the thrift stores, I had something to share last week and I do again this week! It's a miracle!!
Even though I found a few things, the things I am looking for are few and far between. I really do have enough so I should't complain!!
I hope there are more Santa mugs out - I walked by this one first but went back and picked it up - it's marked Ron Gordon Designs Inc. 1983 - I've seen another one since that had some candy cane striping on the handle, so I wonder if this one could be the same.
It always pays to look closely at those junk bags, if you have the patience!! It's not very often you see a knee hugger in one of those bags, I already have the rest of the bag ready to be donated back, I'm only out a $1 and I got a knee hugger!!
A partial box of ornaments for 50 cents!
I think it's going to be a Vera drought over the winter, it seems that this year most of the thrifts have only winter scarves for sale - now, that's just not right!! The one on the left if the first one I've found in ages, or so it seems! My blogging friend Sir Thrift a Lot sent me the other one - thanks so much for picking that up for me!!!
I don't usually buy Fire King and I really haven't been buying any dishes much at all, but I saw this utility dish in the Wheat pattern at Value Village, I wanted it and I bought it. That makes two pieces of Wheat for me, I have the loaf pan which I use often! I only have one Pyrex flamingo green dish that size and sometimes you jut need two, especially around this time of the year! It's in perfect shape - there was an address label on it and also the owners initials on masking tape, stuck on the bottom. I think this dish was probably taken to a few church functions, it's kind of sad to see something like that, why couldn't they take the label off?
Right beside it was sitting this little Pyrex individual casserole, in lime green, now I have the green and flamingo!
I'm happy to find anything nice this time of the year!!
