Here's What I Brought Home..

I had to go to the city yesterday so I set the GPS for yard sales and set out early - that did me no good, I purchased nothing at any of those sales.  I followed some signs and this is what I found - Homestead 473, 474, and 475, with lids - for $3 - can you believe that?  If I found nothing else, I would have been happy!

I know a lot of people don't care for the Homestead pattern, but I think it's kind of nice - these are all the pieces I own..

Three pieces of this I found at the Salvation Army - the two little 501's, with lids and the yellow/orange 502, no lid, I paid $2 each.  I got home and started researching just what set they went with - it's Daisy and I had the orange 503!  I have a set!!  I haven't found fridgies in so long,  earlier in the week I found some Snowflake, now this.....

Butterfly Gold 401 - I have this one, maybe someone else needs it, I paid $1.99 at Value Village

Butterfly Gold lid for 043 - I don't have the casserole, maybe it will turn up some day. I don't think I've ever seen a patterned lid like this before at Value Village -  it was 99 cents..

I'm still having luck finding Vera scarves - I actually found one at at yard sale, the flowered one on the bottom, the other two I bought at Salvation Army, $1 for each one.  The flowered one on the left is a mystery to me - it has the Vera signature but the tag is what is strange  - it is sewn on and made in Korea, I thought all of the scarves were made in Japan.  Is is a fake?  is it a newer one?  Anyone have any ideas??

Finally, I found an Eloise Wilkin book - Where Did the Baby Go?    I've just noticed the Hymns book on Pinterest this week, it's so cute...

These were just too cute - 50 cents!

It's time to link up with Flea Market FindsThe Penny Worthy Project and  Thrifty Love.  Apron Thrift Girl has returned - if you're interested in thrifty finds, these blogs are right for you..


  1. You got an amazing deal on the Pyrex! Great Score! Love your other cute finds, especially the party picks.

  2. You did great! Isn't it crazy how you can go to yard sale after sale and come up empty handed nowadays? Love all your Pyrex finds! And I'm sooo glad you found an Eloise! Funny, that book is the one Eloise that I remember from when I was little. It was at my Grandma Glo's house, and we read it everytime we stayed with her. I'm sure it got sold in one of her infamous yard sales. Sending you a pic of my knock-off Vera right now! This is getting interesting! lol
    Erica :)

  3. I have some Homestead pieces that were wedding shower gifts. Yeah, they have some age on them. :)

    I just love Eloise Wilkin's illustrations and the little hymn book looks sweet, too.

  4. Love all your finds Jill! I know you're happy too since you've completed a Daisy fridgie set!

  5. Good pyrex haul!! I love when I find fridgies.

  6. I have some vintage Vera scarfs and napkins, I will have to check and see where they were manufactured. I will let you know if they are made in Korea instead of Japan.

  7. Wow you found some great finds! Love the cheery yellow. What a fantastic price on the fridge stackers. I have a few of those and paid quite a bit more. Last week I found a gravy boat and tray in the gold pattern. Isn't thrifting fun? I am now following you.

  8. Hi Jill,
    I'm loving all of your finds there, especially the ovenware, fridgies and books, glad I found your blog, thanks for stopping by mine too :)

  9. I'm drooling over your pyrex! I love the colors - so bright and cheery! I have only found 1 piece of pyrex and it's brown :( I like it but *love* the brighter colors :)
