Fun Thrift Store Finds

This week we have been continuing our moving cleanout process, and donating a LOT of stuff.  Of course...incorrigible thrifter that I am...
I had to go in the stores and see what was just waiting for me!

I am being selective and am passing up lots of wonderful stuff...
and just reminding myself how much someone else will enjoy it.  
But a few things did have MY name on them.

This huge old laundry basket is so great for many things. 
Such a wonderful patina. $3.75


This beautiful Mason's English pitcher called to me for many reasons.
I love old pitchers...and well...it's brown transferware ironstone. And did I mention it was $3.75?  Sold.



I often sell flash cards of all types in my Etsy Shop.  
This is actually the first set I have ever found with fractions.  Fun! 50 cents


And feather tree ornaments always make me smile! 25 cents


I found this beautiful old cough syrup bottle. Loving the label graphics! $1.99


And finally I found this beautiful hand knit cardigan sweater from Ireland! 
Oh, the hours spent making this. $3.00




I do love a little thrifting time!
That's it for today...now back to the cleaning out!

Until next time...

  1. I love the old laundry basket Linda. What ever happened to them? The plastic ones work, but where's the charm in plastic? LOL The sweater is as good as a light coat, it looks heavy and thick. :) You got some good deals. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

    1. I have found two of the old baskets now, they are so pretty used in so many ways...throws and pillows in guest rooms, etc!

  5. Your thrift stores have much better prices than ours do. A pitcher like that would have had at least $10 on it. Great finds!
