Treasure Hunt Finds

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

    This was not a great thrifting week as I had my wisdom teeth out and then directly following that I came down with a head cold. That being said I only went out for a little bit today and the sales were not offering any wonderful treasures.

Cute green Pyrex bowl for $3.00. Its my favorite size. I love putting fruit, snacks or mints in this size bowl.

When we arrived at this garage sale the couple were so tired of hosting the sale that they were just giving stuff away literarily! I asked how much the following items were and the lady told me to just take them, and of course I did. 

The bird looks hand painted, and is so lovely.

What treasures did you find? Please feel free to link up so I can share in your fun too!

  1. I love that size Pyrex bowl also. It's just perfect. That bird is so cute!! I didn't go to any yard sales or thrifting this week since I'm at camp.
    hugs, Linda

  2. I really love the little bird. How precious he is! Just giving it away, lucky. The little green Pyrex is sweet too. I sure hope that you heal up quickly from your wisdom teeth extraction and that your head cold goes away very soon! Sending you many, many well wishes from Indiana.

  3. What a sweet little bird and what a bargain!

  4. Wisdom teeth and a head cold? Now that's what I call dedicated! You get the title of Thrifting Trooper! Hope the awesome finds made it just a tad better...Get well soon...

  5. you have such a good collection of pyrex bowls. You seem to be often at the right time at the right place with the right people, to get free stuff.


  6. I love the colour of that little green bowl.

    And I love it when you get to a market stall or garage sale when they are giving stuff away - love it!

  7. This week will surely be better for you - you don't have any more wisdom teeth to give!!!!!
    I love pyrex too, I am still using some that I bought in the 70's! And, free stuff is always great!

  8. I'm seeing so much Pyrex around at the moment!! Hope you're feeling better soon!

  9. The bird is collectible I'm pretty sure, does it have a makers mark? Do some research and sell that baby! Thanks for the linked post on The Penny Worthy Project, glad to have you along.
