Haven’t been hugely successful on my thrifting over the past few weeks, but below are a few notable scores:
Vintage apron and Weather House purchased at the same estate sale.
Close-up of the weather house. It’s my favorite of the bunch I think. The thermometer displays the temperature, obviously, and the man and woman figures act as a barometer. Right now the room is more humid, so the man is out of the house. :) Love it!
Pyrex is slim-pickins around here for some reason. Most of what I find is either in poor condition or too steep for my pocketbook. Here are some divided dishes that were in great shape and affordable! The top is Town and Country and the bottom is Dandelion Duet. (I find all of my pattern info here.) Only one had a lid. I absolutely love these dishes for serving up my sides at the table. :) Found one at a garage sale and one at a thrift store.
Below is the cutest little Holly Hobby Friends doll. Her name is Zayre and she’s an 18” holiday doll from 1988. She’s so stinkin’ cute, and she was practically dangling by her legs in an outside Goodwill bin before I rescued her. Love that face!
And lastly we have an old Polaroid camera found in a big junk warehouse. You know, the kind of place where you have to step over things to get around and you have to worry about taking stuff off the shelves because everything is piled on top. Hopefully I’ll come across some film for the thing one of these days. We’d love to try it out and let the girls use it. I paid $3 for the camera. Too much? Maybe, but the girls have had so much fun playing with it I’ve surely gotten my money’s worth out of it already.
Well, that’s it for now. I’ve had to put my shirt-making aside after some frustration, but I hope to get back to it within a few days.
See ya soon!
