This was one of those thrifty weeks that you dream of. My thrifting started on Monday because I went to the thrift stores while I was visiting my in laws in Hemet. I almost feel guilty about how much Pyrex and treasures I came home with this past week, but my sweet husband said to go for it AND I DID!!!
I found this lovely almost complete set for $16.95 in Ventura. Mr Joyful Thrifter and I got out of the heat and went down to Venutura to enjoy the weather and find some good deals.
I guess when it rains it poors, and it poored on me with this pattern of Pyrex! One of the little mixing bowls came with the set of Cinderella bowls above, and the other two were found at good will for $6.00.
I found these lovelies all at different stores. The lime green one was found at goodwill in Hemet for $2.99, the golden bowl was found at the Good will in Valencia for $2.99, and finally the lovely large cinderella bowl was found at the Salvation army in Hemet for $5.00.
Strange Pyrex find. I have never seen this type of Pyrex tin cover posted anywhere on the blogs, but the tin is marked Pyrex, and the bread dish that fits perfectly inside is Pyrex too! I found him in Ventura for $5.95. Have you ever seen this before? And if so is it rare?
Yay I finally found a lid to go with my lidless divded dish, and it was only $1.99. The little yellow dish was $1.99 too.
FAVORITE PYREX FIND OF THE WEEK!! I love this set. I don't have one like it at all, and was excited to find it at a fabulous estate sale we got to go to on Saturday. I gladly paid $8.00 for this beautiful set. The Estate sale where this lovely was purchased was one of those sales you find after going to about 50 garage sales that are duds. This house was full of every kind of vintage treasure you can think of. The following items were all bought from this awesome sale...
YES ITS IN THE BOX!!! How cool is that? This awesome Pyrex bake around dish cost $2.00, and is in great condition. I am thinking I might try to sell this one as I don't really have a place to store him, but just could not pass up such a great deal.
I love the part of the box that says "as seen on tv" It made me smile.
My first frog! And at a great price too. I paid $2.00/ each for these awesome treasures. I was at a vintage inspired store in Ventura and found a few of these frogs selling for $15.00 + dollars so I was so glad to have only paid $2.00.
Such a sweet table cloth. I just fell in love with it the moment I saw it, and since I have a small table I love snatching up linens that will actually fit my table without overwhelming it. This beauty was $1.50. (bonus there are no stains on it at all)
All of these pretties I got for $2.00. They are full of love and vintage goodness.
Sweet little ladle for $0.50.
Like I said it was a rare Estate sale with the best kind of vintage treasures. I would have gladly bought everything, but my little apartment will bust soon if I keep at the pace I am going. But its so fun, and I usually keep everything in boxes and once a week bring out new treasures to brighten things up and make it look fresh in my small space.
Knitting needles for $2.99 at the good will in Ventura.
Such a sweet children's book about birds for $1.95.
We stopped at this garage sale and I was looking at a bunch of things that I thought were really pretty. As the lady saw me she kindly mentioned to me that everything on the table was $0.10/ each. Well after I heard that I gently began to grab all of the treasures I was interested in and place them in a pile. All of the below pictures were all items that were only $0.10/ each
Can you believe it? I couldn't, but it was true and I had so much fun spending one whole dollar!
What a fun week, and now I have the task of finding homes for all of my new treasures. My favorite part!
It is always such a joy to share my treasures with you all! Please feel free to link up and share your treasures. I love joining in your fun too!
