|on Etsy here, the yellow one from last week is here|
On the stranger side we found two sets of chip and dip bowls: this set with the stand, another purple pair, and another large turquoise bowl! We only bought the full set featured above, since we thought it was the best, and we only need so much Blendo.
These will also be going right up onto Etsy. These three crocheted angel ornaments will add joy and cheer to any holiday celebration.
Julia picked this silly little Christmas candle during this weeks epic Savers run. Not sure of the make since there is no sticker on the bottom, but it definitely looks vintage. We would be a little worried to actually use it since the form doesn't seem like it would be particularly structurally sound once it melts a little.
We actually picked these up last Saturday at the Salvation Army after we had already photographed everything for last week's Nifty Thrifty. This is the third set of brass deer candle holders we've found this month!
We've recently purchased a Whirly Pop from Savers, and we are really excited about making more fresh popcorn. So you can imagine our excitement when we found this set of 70's typographic bowls (one large and three small individual size bowls), but I think we'll probably sell these to help us pay for an even better popcorn vessel. Perhaps a large enamel Cathrineholm or Finel bowl would suit our needs. :)
We were going to make some popcorn to photograph in the bowl, so you could actually read the "Popcorn" type (we took this picture for that purpose with the air plant inside, but it's a little confusing), but never got around to it before the good light was gone.
Yup, you're not having déjà vu; we actually found more Merry Mushroom stuff at the Nashua Salvation Army just yesterday. The planter we found the other week should be available for purchase soon, but it may take a few days to get these up. It always takes us what seems like forever to list large group listings like this because of the inconvenience of measuring and describing each of the pieces, and weighing it all.
This early Pyrex casserole is missing the lid, but it is probably the oldest Pyrex we have ever thrifted, likely from sometime around 1917, when they first started making these glass casseroles with metal stands! Savers has been treating us very well recently with unique items like this.
I love vintage wood toys like this Playskool abacus that I found at the Salvation Army in Nashua yesterday. Items like these aren't worth that much, but they can make great styling tools with all of the fun colors.
As soon as I had pointed this out to Julia at Savers the other day it was in our cart, and we were looking the shelves over for more delicious mid century finds. On the bottom it is labeled as California pottery from 1956. Way out here in Massachusetts we don't find much California pottery, so Julia was pretty excited to add this speckled pink casserole to our inventory.
Hope you enjoyed our finds this week! Did you have a successful week too? Let us know, we love hearing from you!
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 for the Nifty Thrifty Link Up:
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!
