For the most part I’ve been staying out of the thrift stores because I’ve been busy purging and donating stuff myself, and I don’t want to start bringing in new stuff right away.
Also, I have to say that lately this thrifty girl has been finding some of the prices a little too dear.
But when dropping stuff off it’s hard to resist doing a once around to see if there’s anything that catches my fancy,.
Ant I did manage to find a mix of thrifty treasures.
Like this silver teapot cream and sugar.
It was sold as a set for $5, but it’s actually not a set. The teapot doesn’t match the cream and sugar, but that’s perfectly fine with me.
I think I’m on a mission to rescue every silver tea set piece that I can.
If it’s a good price anyway, which for me means it has to be cheap cheap cheap…. and this mismatched set was definitely that.
I usually don’t buy clown stuff, but this vintage salt and pepper set is so fun and colourful… and totally not scary, but since I don’t collect clowns they’re still not keepers.
They’ll be listed in my etsy shop at some point.
You know I can never resist vintage tin molds.
The smaller set of 6 was $2, and the mini bundt looking set of 2 was $1.
At one thrift store that I only go to every once in a while I found some Christmas stuff in a box under a pile of other stuff.
At Christmas time I didn’t find any vintage Christmas treasures, so I guess I was destined to find this lot of 30 vintage punched tin Christmas light reflectors.
They were $3, and well worth that price.
I love vintage hand painted wooden Christmas ornaments, which are usually pretty cheap when I find them.
I found this lot in the same box as the light reflectors, and they gave it all to me for $2.
The colours and the naively painted faces remind me of a simpler time.
So how are the prices in your neck of the thrifting woods? Have you found any treasures lately?
Thanks so much for reading, and until next time…
