What do I like about thrift stores and estate sales and garage sales and eBay and … ? It’s a treasure hunt!
But I have too much stuff and am not enjoying it enough. So I am starting this new blog to show off things I find, things I treasure, and things I could be persuaded to get rid of. Won’t you join me?
Kreiss choirboys, marked “1956,” with “Japan” label
Magic Chef sale shaker–didn’t find the pepper.
“Sprinkle Plenty” with metal sprinkler top.
Egg cups. The one on the right is marked “W. Goebel” and “1964.”
I haven’t posted for such a long time. Here are my most recent thrift store and estate sales finds.
Stopped at the thrift store to drop off donations, took a quick look around, and found this Belleek vase for $1.09. Retail is about $35.
All the Belleek I have either was a gift or was found cheap at a thrift store.
I haven’t posted anything for a long time, partly because I am trying to “de-accession”–my spouse suggested I might find it easier to get rid of things if I gave it a fancy name! But I stopped in an antique store today and saw this marked way down. If was originally a “Drip-O-Lator,” but does not have its inner aluminum parts. Who cares?
Another thrift store find, and at 50% off!
First, a Desert Sands Pottery vase, about 6″ tall. It has a tiny chip under the lip, but heckuva deal for $1.49.
Then, a full place setting of Fiesta Ware in an older color, under $7.00.
I found this small–about 6-1/2″–doll at the thrift store for $1.69.
No marks of any kind. I found this at the thrift store for 69 cents.
