The Nifty Thrifty: A Scale, Swiss Alpine, and Kobenstyle

Wow, was about to throw my phone out the window of our beautiful new third story apartment because I couldn't get these two photos to load, and honestly, I have no idea where they'll end up... and I couldn't care less.  :)

However, we do care about letting you know about our thrifty finds which have not been on pause like our blogging during our move. We don't have internet at the new place yet (hence the blogging on my phone) but we are planning some big posts this week now that the big stress of packing and moving is finally over. Make sure you check back over the next few days to see the final pictures of our old apartment and the first glimpses into our awesome new space (or should I say "spaces" since we actually have multiple rooms!).  Update: check out our last post about our little studio apartment, then and now!




Just days before our big move (on Friday morning to be exact) we went to an estate sale, and found a large collection of Marcrest Stetson Swiss Alpine dinnerware (we love this style if you didn't know already).  This will not be making it further than our new kitchen where they will, along with us, be pampered with a dishwasher!




We also picked up some awesome turquoise lotus bowls at that estate sale as well as the funny Corningware tea kettle, but the kobenstyle Dansk baking pan (not in great shape, but such a steal at Savers we couldn't say no), Italian glass pitcher, corked container, Blue Heaven custard cups, and vintage scale were picked up at thrift stores around our newly old hunting grounds.

It's sad to be leaving an area that we've grown so accustomed to, but we keep finding new thrift stores by our new apartment, and not to play favorites, but the Savers in Nashua, NH, is just plain better. Our new apartment is also awesome, and we can't wait to share it with you over the next few days!

  1. Yay to more thrift stores! I love seeing what goodies you guys find. I like to learn a bit about the stuff, too. I've been secretly lurking and you are such an inspiration, I just recently opened an Etsy shop with my Mom. We like the idea of sharing some of our own treasure hunted goodies with other collectors.

  4. Love all of your finds. Absolutely adore that scale. So jealous, I rarely find such beauties at thrifts. I have to go to garage sales and auctions to find the good things. Glad you found some new thrifts to go to.
