I am still trying to catch up here on the blog, after my months long hiatus. As promised, here are some more vintage goodies I have found this summer.
With our garage/ yard sale season being so short, it is sometimes hard to find real bargains.
These great atomic patterned Fire King Mosaic plates and bowls were from a garage sale. The Franciscan starburst divided bowl was snagged at a local indoor flea market. I can never afford the online prices for this popular pattern. I have only been able to find the meat platter and this bowl locally.
This 50’s ballerina fabric was from the same indoor flea market as the bowl above. It sold in only a few hours after listing it in my Etsy shop. The colors are just fabulous.
I don’t remember where I picked up this huge plastic cabbage leaf snack server but know I didn’t pay much 🙂
This “Happy Hour” Anchor Hocking turquoise/ gold chip and dip was purchased online from a vintage Facebook page.
I bought this vintage kit purse at a mid-century shop and put it together myself. I collect Enid Collins purses but this knockoff was too cute to pass up!
This little orange lamp looks good on the bar. I picked it up from a consignment shop where I sell a few things as I rotate stuff in and out of the house.
Now that I have orange in my kitchen, that color Pyrex is on my radar. It is great for the fall months. This rarer #933 was only $7 at a church thrift shop. I will use it for sweet potatoes on Thanksgiving. The Fire King set in the background is my favorite snack set pattern.
Here is most of my fall Pyrex stash culled from garage sales, thrift stores and gifts from my sweet friends and family.
It is never too early to pick up vintage Christmas kitsch. The Rudolph album and cool speckled holly leaf candy dishes were from the Salvation Army.
Also from the Salvation Army, I eyed these glass ornaments just as they were being brought in, before they were even priced. All are Shiny Brites except the box in the back. I like to use these for my aluminum trees and crafting items for my Etsy shop.
This pair of salad/ soup bowls were only 80 cents at a local thrift. I love this size for big salads, which are served here often in the summer.
Well, until I buy more things I probably don’t need this will have to do!
Our new mid-century style front door is in the garage waiting to be installed. Check back soon to see it!
