Thrifty Thursday Vol. 54: Doll Heads, Records, and More!

Hi everyone! Welcome to this week's edition of Thrifty Thursday, where I share my weekly thrift store/swap meet/estate sale finds!

Phillip and I went to some garage and estate sales last Saturday and we didn't have much luck at all. The only things we found were some records, shown below:

We went home feeling disappointed, and while I got to work on my Cambie Dress, Phillip went out to some thrift store. He found this cute little 1960s ceramic girl:

And this interesting crane-shaped dish (maybe ash tray?):

We cleaned out the sewing/vintage stuff room last weekend, and dug up some things we found a long time ago and never photographed. First up is this box of little dolls, maybe from the 1940s or 50s:

I love the graphic on the top of the box- I had Phillip scan it for me before he sold them:

I'm pretty sure I found these vintage greeting cards over three years ago when I worked at Achievement House! Aren't they cute?

We found this big bag of plastic doll heads at the Goodwill a few months ago. There were some cool vintage ones that we picked out to sell on Ebay.

Did anyone else go thrifting this week? What did you find?

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 all of the finds for this week!

Have a great rest of your week!


  1. Really love the ceramic doll, she looks like a sweetheart. I recently went thrifting and found a Dirty Dancing Vinyl - Stoked LOL!

  2. I'd love to go thrifting with you one day! :)

  3. I love the crane shaped thing. Just beautiful.

  4. Those little dollies are actually kind of cute! Normally they totally freak me out, kind of like the bag of heads you found. : )

  5. That is just the sweetest little girl!!

  6. Any plans to put those records on ebay? :)

    1. Possibly. Which one/ones are you interested in?

    2. I would be interested in the Miles, the Bille Holiday 10 inch, and the 8 top hits 10 inch. I love 10 inches, but we don't get a lot of them coming through the pipeline out here on the east coast.
      I will keep an eye on your ebay page!

  7. Love those vintage cards. I can't ever pass them up, especially when they come in the original boxes.

    Have a great week!
