Church Sale Finds

Today and tomorrow is one of the biggest church sales in our city. I found a few things for resale and some things for myself. The sale was definitely huge but the crowd made it overwhelming. It was annoying trying to walk down aisles when people were pushing strollers and misbehaving children were running all over the place.

I was hoping to find some Pyrex. I don't know if it was sold before I got there or there wasn't much donated. They had two woodland casserole dishes but I didn't get them. I did find The Cookie jar though.

There wasn't a huge selection of blankets but I was able to find 2 vintage ones. I also found 2 Snuffles. The pink record holder was bought at an estate sale.

How cool is this Ziggy phone? Im a little irritated because you can't make a phone call unless you smash down the buttons and hear them beep. I wish they had taped does not work properly on it when they donated it. I probably would have passed and bought the Coke cup phone instead.

We went to two estate sales afterwards. At one I found the pink record holder above and a 25" Henry dog.

At the second estate sale, I found a Lite Brite. It's from the 90's and has a plug.

I convinced my sister to go to a thrift store. She doesn't like this one because it smells bad. I swear someone peed in the back room. It was pretty bad. However, I like this store because if you ask, they sometimes will take an offer. I bought this dresser to use as a tv stand. I told them I didn't want the mirror. (which I found out later was a huge mistake) It is stamped Kroeher.

The spot on the photo is from my camera. The dresser is in pretty good shape. Of course my hubby doesn't like it but that's too bad. I really can't return it and no one in town would pay what it's worth.

Thrifty Finds

It's been awhile since I posted a finds post. I've been driving my friends crazy posting my finds on Facebook.

This was a ceiling fixture. My husband turned it into a table lamp for me.

I sold my bookcases and bought this bakers rack and corner shelf. I found the head vase at Goodwill.

Yesterday, I dropped off some things at the consignment shop and found these owls. See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil.

I've always wanted one of these lamps. It's actually pink.

I also picked up this vintage foot stool that doesn't match anything and the area rug.

Some Finds

I found two book cases this past week. Not that I needed them but the price was to good to pass up.

The first one is pressed wood but I have a matching one so I felt I needed to get this one. It is missing the top glass though.

The second one is vintage with sliding glass doors. It came from Goodwill and I was surprised the price was so low.

Ive always wanted a hand. Don't ask me why. I got this awhile ago along with the owl ring.

This child's jewelry box is for sale in my eBay store. I thought it was cute.

A few days ago, I picked up these flower frogs. I really like the cage looking ones. I found the elf on a pillow in a bargain bag. I was surprised because the thrift store usually has these under their glass counter.

And of course, another set of Pyrex. These look like they have never been used.

Garage Sale, Estate Sale Thrift Store Finds

I haven't done a find post in quite some time. Here are some items I purchased from garage and estate sales, the thrift store and Goodwill.

I saw this clock a few months back at an estate sale but didn't buy it. It showed up later at the thrift. The chicken shakers are from Goodwill.

I recently started collecting Pyrex. I got the orange and green dots bowl at a garage sale. I also have an extra orange that I found at the consignment shop.

The pink gooseberrgooseberries were also from a garage sale. I had to make an offer on those. I hate when sellers don't price their items. You obviously know what you want so why not price it. I also bought the owls at a different sale.

I bought the 503 dish from ebay and the smaller one came from the garage sale where the dots were. I also got the yellow dish there and I found 2 strawberries at the thrift store. I'm selling one on ebay.

Owl, stool and cups from garage sale. Mug tree came from an estate sale.

I named my rooster Clarence. I'd like to get him framed and hung on the wall. Right now, he is on the counter under the cabinets.

I'm selling the glass hen candy dish on ebay. Hopefully, I can hang the rooster shelf soon. I'm not sure what the silver shelf is for but it does a great job of displaying my bowls and casseroles.

I love this utensil holder but apparently I'm not handy enough to hang it straight.

Some Finds

It's hard to find anything lately for resale. Most of what I bought this week, I'm keeping.

I paid a little too much for this 402 red primary bowl but I found the spring blossom butter dish for a steal.

My friend found me the Butterprint cinderella bowls at an estate he bought. It's missing a bowl and has a few chips but I love it.

I was going to bid on a blue Fire King relish dish on ebay, but the sniper program I used, didn't place my bid. I found out after the auction, ebay didn't recognize my password so the sniper couldn't work. I was happy to find the white one the next day at Goodwill.

I also found this cute silver cat.

Garage Sale Season

Garage sale season has finally arrived. I only went to 2 this morning but hopefully there are more to come. I didn't find much I wanted and haven't found anything for resale.

I didn't think this lid was Pyrex because it wasn't marked but the dish was. From what I gather, it's a promotional piece called Nouveau Floral.

I found these Holt salt and pepper shakers at an antique mall. I went back the next day and bought the large Fire King Tulip bowl. I wish I could find the others.

I'm almost certain there is a lady in the back room at the thrift store hoarding all the Pyrex. My friend told me about a Butterfly Gold cinderella casserole set and when I came back when she was supposed to be working, she wasn't there. I was told she was no longer going to be working there. And the Pyrex was never put out. But little Miss Hoarder missed these 3 Pyrex cups.

Some Finds

My sister found the light yellow bowl at the consignment shop.

I was excited to find these opal bowls thinking they were Pyrex. A member in a Facebook group thought they were Hazal Atlas.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this Salton warming tray.  It works but the knob falls off and the cord doesn't connect correctly.

I've been looking for a vintage Kitchen aide mixer but was happy to find this Sunbeam one.

I've never seen England Pyrex in the wild until today. Although it's newer (1980s) I like it. It's white.

And a metal colander which is actually a bad idea for draining hot items.
