Thrifting the Summer Away

Standard

I thought I would share a few things I have picked up this spring and summer at yard sales, thrift stores and flea markets.

This big stack of atomic star burst melamine dinner plates were at a local thrift store. How cool are these! The blue and gray go perfect in my new kitchen.

Love me some Blendo.

And several pieces of this dinnerware. It closely resembles the Biscayne pattern. The colors are great for the fall months.

We also made it to a once-a-month flea market out of town. This trip did not disappoint!

These Christmas (?) ceramic holly leaf candy dishes are just so cool. I love the speckled colors. And sweet Rudolph! I am always on the hunt for Kitschmas items.

A bargain hunting friend found me this pair of goldish-yellow chairs with original Frieze upholstery for $25 at a garage sale! I still don’t know what I am going to do with them but for that price I just could not pass them up.

Here are more thrift store goodies. I am loving the Fire King Spring Wreath pattern and always trying to find more pieces. I think the open baker turquoise Pyrex is a little more rare than the divided dish. The salad bowl reminds me of my mom 🙂

This tablecloth is large enough for my big kitchen table AND it matches my aqua and orange themed kitchen.

Well, these are just a sampling of my newest stash.

I promise to post more of my finds in the next week or so.

How about you? Has this summer been good for thrifting?
