Random Stuff I found

Some things I found at the thrift store.

I had one of these night lights when I was a child. It was half off. I didn't see it there when I went on Monday but saw it on Thursday. It had to have been there at least a month to be the color of the week.

The thrift store by my house had half off on dishes. I found this strawberry cookie jar.

A cute owl

I bought these Neil the Frog off Ebay. I didn't think I would ever find them itw and the price was good.

I also bought this vintage scale on Ebay.

It's getting hard to find reasonably priced Pyrex but I did get this Spring Blossom casserole dish.

And a Linus

Pyrex and Minions and Snoopy Oh My

I only found three things today. I also found the owner of the car keys I posted about last week. It was a guy who works for a trucking company and the keys fell out of his pocket as he was getting into his truck.

The bottom of this Pyrex dish reads Pyrex General Mills Inc Minneapolis Minn. I believe it is the mixing bowl to an electric mixer.

I had to get the minion clock because it's so cute. Lights flash around it.

I'm hoping someone buys this Baby Snoppy crib set. It comes with a sheet, bumpers and a blanket. It's listed on ebay if anyone is interested.

Lost Keys

Yesterday, I was walking through an empty lot and found a set of keys. I figured since they had a snapfitness card attached, the owner would be easy to find.

But I was wrong. I called the number on the card. The guy who answered said they did not use those type of cards at their location. He was very puzzled. I asked if he could somehow do a search with the coded number. He told me the card belonged to a snapfitness in Minnesota and the name was Alexandra Smith. He gave me an email to the center.

I sent an email to that snapfitness but they came up empty handed. I posted the keys in a local FB garage sale group and even created a Facebook group for lost and found items in my area.

I found 2 Alexandras on fb but neither responded to my message

So if you are reading this, Alexandra, and have lost your keys, I have them and would really like to get them back to you.

A Tale Of Two Train Tables

About 2 weeks ago, I found a small train table at Goodwill. It came with some tracks, trees, people, buildings, signs and a car. I bought it for Ryker

Last Friday, I went to a different Goodwill and found a bigger table with storage containers underneath. My sister tried to talk me out of buying it. She had a good point: Ryker already had one and does he even play with the one he has?

I decided to buy the bigger table. I could always sell the smaller one on Facebook. I did have a buyer yesterday, but later in the day he decided to change his mind. Hopefully, I can sell it soon.

Have you ever bought something only to find something better a few days or weeks later? Did you buy the better one?
