Thriftasaurus

Thriftasaurus


Did anybody get any great vintage items from their boo for Valentines Day? Not me, but I did get taken on a grand thrifting extravaganza the day after (had to work on VDAY) & found some nice items. Still seems like slim pickings all over (went to about 10 thrift & antique stores).

My favourite Pyrex piece found this week was the 1959 Compass Snack Server Promotional. It was on sale at a new antique mall we discovered in a town so small that it wasn't even found in our GPS. They didn't take cash, so my BF had to take a trip 1KM into the city to an ATM. 


Also in the market there was a stash of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pins & some vintage NOS Russ pins as well as some 75% off vintage Valentines. I'm set for next year.



This pattern isn't my favourite pattern, Shenandoah, but I can buy Bake Serve & Store until the cows come home & they were in near mint condition. Also was called to the sporting goods area of the store (which I never venture into) & laying on top of everything was something I've been meaning to cross off my list for $1.99 - this 1990 New Kids on the Block duffel bag. 



One more item to check off my list - this snowflake space saver. I need some spare lids.. I've found 2 spare space saver lids in the wild. I've got 3 space savers to lid up


A 1978 Garfield towel for the beach! A Ms. Pac Man game. Should have double checked this.. missing a ghost. Damn. When will I learn? 



I was lucky enough to find a scroll in a thrift... it has a few deep scratches on one side & needs a good cleaning. We'll see how it turns out. These Glasbake mugs are my fav ever pieces of Glasbake (maybe the only pieces of Glasbake I would ever buy). Anyways, finally found one - 99cents. 


Can't wait to see what you've found..

  2. I got a card for Valentine's Day. Not even vintage. Once again I have nothing for your party, but I'm hoping thrifting will pick up around here soon and i can't wait for garage sale season!

  3. Those valentines are great. I pass on a lot of pyrex, I just do not know enough to make an informed decision. Your finds make me want to pick more of it.

  4. Finally, you found some Valentines! Better late than never. I cannot believe that you found a Scroll at a thrift. I bought mine at an antique mall!

    Have a great week!

  5. As usual great Pyrex. I saw the one with the handle in a local antique store and regret not picking it up. The other finds are also great.

  9. I love that your Promotional came with the handle! That to me is one of the coolest things about the piece. Glad you had a good day after Valentine's Day!

  13. Just found your blog, LOVE IT! Wanted to brag that I just bought 10 of those cups, 49cents a piece at my local Goodwill. I have two of the mint green, blue, pink, yellow and white. I love being able to switch out my decor for so cheap so you should get my your address and when I tire of these cups I can ship them off to you. ;)
