I actually have a post of some treasures I've found in the last week!! The posts and the purchases are few and far between - a house can only hold so much stuff, can't it? I'm being selective!!
Anyone that has been following my blog for a while, knows that I am always on the lookout for Vera scarves - my collection numbers 288 right now, I hope I can reach 300 by the end of the summer. Last Friday I saw an unexpected yard sale, lo and behold, I found a Vera there - for 25 cents or was it 50 cents, whatever, it was a steal. I was away last weekend and found the rest of these at a Salvation Army - always on the lookout!!
I've been looking for a nice jug for a while, spotted this one at Value Village the other day!
I wanted it to replace a Pyrex carafe that I had on this shelf, now I need to find another one to replace the green coffee pot! It sure is hard to take a good picture when you're standing on a chair!!!
I hardly ever see these magazines at the thrift stores, they're so great to cut up for SMASHing, I bought every one - and got one for free!!
It's raining here today, I didn't go to any yard sales but there was an estate sale advertised, which we never have here, of course, I had to check it out!!! I came out with a bag of goodies for $5.
It's worn, but we're of Scottish heritage and it'll be great in the game room!
I bought this little alarm clock because I received one for Christmas, in the 70's, as well, mine is beige and has one leg broken off, I knew I was going to get it for cheap, so I took it! It still works! And, I love the little note on the bottom, looks like that might have been a Toronto jeweller!
This is a real vintage Cootie game! My kids had a Cootie game but it sure wasn't like this one, look at those little game pieces!
A mixed bag of game pieces to go in a jar!
There was a box of playing cards, I took them all, some of the illustrations are so cute!! I can use them for SMASHing, or my newest thing - pocket letters, but that's a post for another day!!!
It was fun to poke around and actually find a few things, hope the fun continues!!
