This week was a real mixed bag for thrifting, but I did find some interesting things.
If you’ve been following me for a while you probably know I have a thing about goblets. I shared my goblet collection a while back.
These vintage German pewter goblets are so cool. They have a lovely aged patina, and the engraving is absolutely beautiful and so detailed.
Can you believe I got these for $1 each? It’s crazy!
I need to do more research before I decide if these are a keep or a sell.
In a little shop that I only go to once in a blue moon I found a bunch of vintage wooden Christmas ornaments. These are in lots in my etsy shop.
This particular shop has all cutlery priced at 10 cents a piece, even silver plate. I found these SP handled knives there and I took all they had.
I’ve been collecting SP knives for a while now for a few someday projects.
This Scottish tea towel caught my eye with its vibrant colours and traditional Scottish recipes. This will be going in my etsy shop.
I’m always looking for vintage necklaces to use in wind chime projects, and others.
And the ceramic NOEL dish set will be getting a makeover.
I have a love for pink hued copper, and I pretty well can’t resist it… especially when it’s only 25 cents.
And the cute little ladder stole my heart for 10 cents. What can I say? My heart loves what it loves. I have a Christmas project idea for it, but I’m not sure I have all the elements to put it together. We’ll see.
And last, but not least, this vintage pair of handmade grape cluster bottle cap trivets. I love the bright green. So fun and cheerful.
In case you’ve never seen one, here’s what the bottom looks like. A while ago I sold a vintage crocheted grape cluster bottle cap trivet in my etsy shop and a guy bought it for his bottle cap collection.
He shared with me that some of these have vintage bottle caps with advertising logos and such on them. The thing is you don’t know for sure until you take it apart so it’s a bit of a gamble. He let me know that he did get his value and a little more out of his purchase, and it was fun for me to learn something new.
I don’t have the heart to take these apart to see so they’ll be going into my etsy shop. Maybe he’ll try his luck again.
Thanks so much for reading, and until next time… keep on keepin’ on.
