After my last comment this might be confusing, but we actually bought this at the Hollis flea market in New Hampshire a few weeks back, but for some reason when I went to make the post I forgot to add this picture. Julia bought this off of a pair of guys that specialized in vintage video game consoles, but they randomly had this vintage 60's RCA radio in the classic aqua turquoise. We recently listed this on Etsy, and it sold within only a few days; as we write this post it's on its way to Australia.
Another Julia find -- these small wine glasses with silver ombre rims and embossed sunburst patterns are classically mid century, and will definitely not have any issue finding a good home. We always check out the glassware section of Savers for interesting cups and glasses, but rarely do we find full sets like this in good condition.
I grew up sailing, so you can probably understand that when I found this awesome brass boat at Savers I had to pick it up. We love brass figurines, but I think this is one of my favorites that we've purchased.
These little wooden public vehicle toys made by Montgomery Schoolhouse are another fun Savers find. We have a hard time resisting colorful wooden children's toys, and these were no exception. Unfortunately we discovered that they are not actually vintage, just well-used toys made in a traditional style.
|you name it we clip it|
I found this giant paper clip in the office section at Savers the other day. I always chuckle a bit to myself when I find giant paper clips because when we first started our Etsy shop we sold an extra large paper clip to a woman who is a self proclaimed oversized paper clip collector. So when we came across another on the shop of a fellow blogger/thrifter (check out her awesome thrift blog: Tatter and Fray) we let the clip enthusiast know, and she promptly bought it. We will definitely be letting her know about this one too.
Julia gave me a funny look when she pulled this out of our cart at Savers the other day, but I think it's awesome. The metal has an exciting oxidized quality to it, and there is no label or name on it so I can use it for my classes if I so choose... and I just might.
We hope you've been having good luck with your finds, and please let us know your thoughts as well as your most exciting finds! Also, check back on Tuesday, as Julia will be posting about her latest DIY project.
These blogs also host great link-ups that we join, so make sure you check them out, too: Apron Thrift Girl, Me and my Shadow, and Sir Thrift-A-Lot
Without further ado, a few easy rules:
1. We would love it if you would follow our blog on Google Friend Connect (check the right sidebar), like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and leave a friendly comment :)
2. Only link up recent blog posts that showcase your thrifty finds from the week, including items from yard sales, estate sales, thrift stores, consignment stores, flea markets, and even the side of the road! Thrifty finds that you have restored or updated are fine, but please no unrelated DIY or craft projects (we like those, too, but lets keep this link-up focused on thrifty vintage!).
3. Remember to LINK BACK to this blog - a living space - so everyone can join in!
4. Link straight to your individual post, not your whole blog.
5. No links to Etsy shops or other non-blog sites.
Thanks for joining in!
