Thrifty Thursday Vol. 45: Rin Tin Tin, Goggles, and a Hobo

Hello and welcome to Vol. 45 of Thrifty Thursday, where I share my weekly thrift store finds! (You can see all of the previous Thrifty Thursday posts here). We certainly found some interesting items this week! Take a look:

A funky lion cookie jar...

A pair of old welding goggles...

A stuffed Rin Tin Tin doll, unfortunately missing his original collar...

A couple of dishes commemorating Hawaii's statehood...

A Rushton hobo doll (I don't blame you if you find him extremely creepy)...

A pixie-head cookie jar...

And last but not least, a little Dutch girl with a funny facial expression!

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be linking up at Apron Thrift Girl, A Living Space, Sir Thrift A Lot, and Joyful Treasure Hunting. Head on over and check out everyone's finds for this week!


  1. It cracks me up that your last three finds have the creepiest expressions! Do they love you or are they going to maim you in your body can really tell! Ha!
    What's funny though is that I would have bought all those things too! Great finds!
    Is that little dutch girl doing duck lips?!

  2. Ha ha, that description is spot-on! I guess I must have an attraction to slightly creepy faces. At least they're interesting, right?

    I think she may be doing duck lips- possibly for her facebook profile.

  3. I loooove pixie stuff---and yes, that hobo doll is very creepy! He kind of looks like a combo of a hobo and a clown ++shivers++

    1. Yes, I think he might be the creepiest thing we've found so far!

  4. The hobo doll has to go....
    But I love the welding goggles! Very steampunk!

    1. Yeah, I'm hoping he's a quick sell! And I thought the same thing when I saw those goggles!

  5. But if you put the girl next to the cookie jar, it looks like she's ready to tattle on "who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?" :o)

    1. Ha ha, yes! She does have a very "tattle-tale" expression!

  6. Love the Lion!!! Too stinkin cute!!
