Fabulous Finds of All Kinds

Thrifting lately has been a lot of fun.

Not that it isn’t usually fun, but I’m really enjoying being a little more selective with my treasure hunting.

And I have a real mixture of finds this week.

Like this ceramic fingers-snapping salt and pepper set. My guess is that it’s from the 1980s.

The one on the right is about 4″ high, and they’re both in great shape. They’re stamped Made in China.

This vintage “Whistle for your Milk” ceramic cup is so adorable, and there’s actually a whistle in the bird’s tail.

And it works!

How fun is that?

It’s stamped Made in Japan, and probably dates to the 1960s.

This pewter candle snuffer is quite heavy. It’s decorated with grapes and leaves on the snuffer, and the handle is the vine.

It’s marked pewter on the inside. I can’t quite make out the E word on the left, and I think it reads Zinn on the right.

Whenever I see a crystal door knob set I have to pick it up. There’s just something so pretty about the sparkle of crystal.

I have a large collection of vintage wooden ornaments like these, and I can’t resist them whenever I find them.

They comes is so many characters and items. It’s seems pretty endless.

You can see my collection on my living room Christmas tree here.

And last, but definitely not least, is this seed bead mirror.

I couldn’t believe it when I found it. It’s so amazingly pretty. The flowers and leaves are just covered in seed bead on wire strands.

My research hasn’t found anything like this, so I have no idea when it dates to or what its value is..

Here’s a close up so you can see the beadwork.

When I first saw it at the thrift store I thought it was just a mirror, but it’s not.

I turned it over to find four feet, revealing it’s true purpose as a vanity tray.

That just made it even more fabulous!

You could certainly hang it up if you liked, either vertically or horizontally.

And then you could hang the second up beside it.

Yes, I found two. How awesome is that!

I have to say that this thrifting thing never gets old. You just never know what you’ll find and where you’ll find it.

Most of these things will be going in my etsy shop, but I’ll probably be keeping the crystal door knob, and the wooden ornaments.

Thanks so much for reading and until next time,

keep on keepin’ on!

  2. I love all your finds but I am partial to the little whistle mug. I have 2 of them, one in pink and one in light blue and I adore them! I have a couple sets of the crystal door knobs in my home and I love the look of them also! So much hard work put into that mirror, wow! Great finds all around!

    1. Thanks Pam! I’m hoping the crystal door knob will fit one of my own doors. It’s just so pretty!

  3. My favorite part of all your fabulous finds is knowing how little you paid…fill us in!
