Thrifty Thursday Vol. 57: Thrifty Friday

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

 I realize it's actually Friday and I'm sure you will all forgive my teensy little I right?

Despite what I said last week about not going to thrift stores or estate sales for the rest of the month, we did hit a few sales on Saturday morning. I'm glad we did, because we scored some pretty awesome finds! Most of them are headed to our antique space, though the patterns will go to my Etsy shop. We'll be heading down there this weekend at some point to check out the Old Days celebration in Los Alamos and represent our booth to customers. The lady who manages the mall suggested that we try to be there so we can accept offers on items. It seems like it will be fun regardless (this will be my first time) and I'll try to take lots of pictures to share with you!
Anyway, on to the finds! First up are these Pyrex bowls- I was pretty shocked we managed to snag them and at great prices too. I actually have both of these patterns in my collection, so off to the antique space they go!

Next up: a couple of fun Christmas finds and a pretty feathered hat. The holiday season is almost upon us!

I love this copy of "Wynken, Blynken, and Nod" we found at one sale. How gorgeous are these illustrations? I couldn't resist them!

Some great vintage patterns, including 1960s Barbie ones:

I found this amazing "How to Speak Spanish" handkerchief for 50 cents...I think I'm going to frame it for my sewing room.

I laughed when I read this section...I guess it's to help you deal with creepy Spanish men?

And last but not least, some cute juice glasses, also a steal at 75 cents for all three!

Did anyone else go thrifting this week? I'd love to see what you found!

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!


  1. LOVE the Pyrex! I recently started collecting it myself and adore both the flamingo and aqua colors. It's such a cheery addition to any kitchen. Count me as quite jealous of your find! ;)

  2. Oooh, those pyrex bowls - love them!! And the Spanish handkerchief is such a cool find.

  3. I love those Pyrex dishes! I should look for some like those. My mom and grandma have some from that time period, but they aren't nearly as cute in avocado and brown. That "how to speak Spanish" handkerchief is a riot!

  4. The Christmas stocking is almost exactly like my childhood one is, from the 1950's. Mine is well worn and I don't think it is white around the edges, but maybe it's just no longer white! haha. Will have to wait and see until I get decorations out. Thanks for the memory! I love your pink and aqua Pyrex!

  5. That handkerchief is hilariously cute!

  6. A perfect thrifting Saturday, I'd say!! Great finds!

  7. I'm loving your pink Gooseberry - I've yet to find some, but they're out there... That hanky is a riot! Very cool.
    This post would be perfect for my new link party that starts tomorrow, Oct. 1, called We Call It Olde - anything antique or vintage. I hope you'll link up! Take care - Dawn @ We Call It

  8. I wish I could find pink Gooseberry Pyrex like that at our garage sales and secondhand stores around here.
    Nice find.

  9. LOL @ "no thank you very much" that's weird. The.close up is pretty funny, but I guess from what I hear the are a fair amount of persistant Spanish men, so this would come in handy.

    Great colours on the Pyrex bowls. This year I'd like to try to find stockings like that. i'm gonna do a wanted Wednesday for a friend who wants to do estate sales and can get my ass in gear. . gosh, loner loser here!!
