I’ve been pretty good with using my love, need, or sell rule when it comes to thrifting.
I’m very happy to say that it stopped me from bringing some things home that I would have before… so it’s turning out to be a good thing for me.
This heart is definitely a love, and maybe a sell down the road.
At first I thought it was made out of a slinky but I’m pretty sure it’s not. I don’t think it’s homemade.
Aren’t these mini cafe sets adorable? They’re made of wire and are definitely a love, and a possible sell. They’re also bordering on a need because I’m thinking they’d be pretty nice in a fairy garden scene.
I’ll have to think about that some more.
You know about my love of vintage bakeware. Well I couldn’t resist this vintage marble cake pan.
It’s going to help me with some organization in my craft room.
This brass piece looks like a mini version of an ash bin, but I’m not sure. It has a delft blue-like handle, but is unmarked.
I think it’ll make a good wind chime piece.
I found a couple of tea towels to sell in my etsy shop. This Glasgow one …
and one from Nottingham.
And last but not least I picked up this vintage 1978 Depression Glass Price Survey guide.
This is a love, and a need because even though all the photos are in black and white, and the prices of course will be out of date, it does give a lot of information on tons of different patterns.
I’ve seen items that look like depression glass in the thrift stores in the past, but since I didn’t know much I didn’t buy them. I’m hoping this will help me become more knowledgeable so I can recognize DP when I see it in the future.
I want to give a big thank to those of you who gave me some insight into my What the Heck Are They? finds from last week. You gave me some things to go on in my research, and when I find out for sure what they are I’ll be sure to share here.
Now on to my announcement.
Starting this coming Thursday I’ll be joining the weekly Vintage Charm link party as a hostess. Vintage Charm is all about vintage… reloved, repurposed, and upcycled… and those are a few of my favourite things!
If you haven’t already please check out these wonderfully talented bloggers, and be sure to come back here on Thursday morning to check out the party and link up anything vintage… furniture redos, roadside finds, repurposed and upcycled projects, collections, home decor, and more!
Vintage Charm is a great place to find inspiration for both bloggers and non-bloggers.
Thanks so much for reading and until next time… keep on keepin’ on.
