Summer Thrifting


Well, July has come and gone. It was just a blur of crazy busy days.

Our French girl has gone home and I am back to weekly thrifting stops.

Here are a few recent finds:

This atomic looking ice bucket would have been right at home on the Jetsons. I have been looking at similar ones on Etsy but just could not afford them.  This  was $5.

This lamp needs a funky fiberglass shade and will go in the basement with our green sectional. It was $16.

new stuff 1259

I love this swirly black and white casserole for $5. It is perfect and still like new.

new stuff 1247

Here are some kitchen items I got at an estate sale for $1 each. I am a little bit Pyrex addicted.

new stuff 1212

I picked up a pair of these great soup / salad bowls for a few dollars. I love the starburst pattern!

This $1 fiberglass bowl is signed Wm. A. Bostick. It looks great in my peach tiled bathroom:

new stuff 945

This bowl is super cool too. It was $2. I cannot find a pattern name for it. Since the lid is gone I use it for fresh fruit.

new stuff 847

This Glasbake loaf pan was $3. I have still not been able to identify this pattern either:

This server has great hairpin legs. Another $1.

new stuff 1200

These vintage Lawnware lights were $1 for all 3! I did not even know what they were until I got home and researched them. People made them for their patio, campers and Tiki rooms. They look so cool lit up.

estate sale 098

Here is a purse I found for $1.50. It is made from vintage drapery fabric:

clothing 005

I also picked up an entire box of 1960’s dresses for $1 each. Here is one of my faves:

Well what do you think? Have I found some deals or just more junk?

Hope you are enjoying this end of summer!
