Well, I did it folks. Made it to a Goodwill 50% off day on a Saturday. I typically hit the store during the week because I don’t like dealing with long lines and big crowds that the half-off Saturdays bring, but I sometimes make an exception. On those days, unless I’m early, I don’t expect to find Pyrex goodies, though I did come across this Pyrex Country Cornflower carafe! Too cute!
What I DO tend to look for on half-off days are play clothes for the kiddos. I have two young and very active boys, who tend to “break in” their clothing quite well, whether they’re new or used. So I always see how I can supplement their wardrobe with thrifty finds. And this trip proved quite successful! I snagged Gap Kids, Old Navy, Children’s Place and Mossimo clothing for the little guys…and all of this for just $12. Not too shabby!
This past week, I was only able to make a brief trip into a local Arizona Goodwill, but that 20 minutes was enough for me to unearth a couple of Pyrex gems.
First, I found this lovely Empire Scroll – Vines oval dish. It is in great shape, and I can wait to use it. It’s a perfect size for so many things.
I also came across this little Snowflake Blue round dish. Though there was no set and it doesn’t really “go well” with other Pyrex I already own, I just couldn’t leave it on the shelf! Could you have? It’s too cute!
Lastly, they’re no Pyrex, but I found these fun tins that I just love! The colors are so me…I can’t wait to find a good use for them in the home!
Well lookie here! I’m just starting out with posting my thrifting finds…and I was tagged as “Thriftaholic of the Week” by Morgan from Meet Virginia. Go check it out, along with the weekly thrift linky party!
It was another good week for thrifting! And yes, I go thrifting weekly, sometimes more! How else would I be able to share all my fabulous finds? I’m actually always on the lookout for vintage Pyrex, and sometimes I really luck out!
In the way of Pyrex this week…I picked up this lovely Town & Country oval divided serving dish. I just love it! It’s in fantastic condition too, which is a bonus.
Now I use my Pyrex for cooking and mixing, I love the stuff. But I also was raised using Corning Ware as well. I’m a sucker for a beautiful set, plus the casserole dishes with lids are just so handy to have around! So of course I had to pick up these Spice ‘O Life dishes…
The top one says “Le Persil La Sauge”, which in French means parsley and sage (and no, I didn’t know that, I looked it up). And the bottom one says “La Marjolaine” which is marjoram in French. I’ve already cooked with them; there is nothing like good Corning Ware in the kitchen!
My last purchase of the week is a hoot. No, really…it’s an owl and a bank! It says “Be Wise, Save”. Too fun. I’m thinking about painting it a lovely cream color and putting it in my office. Or maybe he’ll stay his fun brown and orange, with blue eyes.
Well those were my finds for this week! What fun stuff did you come across?
Welcome to A Night Owl Blog! One of my favorite things to do of late is to scope out local thrift stores for all sorts of goodies. I have always been a vintage Pyrex lover; I grew up using my Mom’s beautiful gold Daisy Pyrex 4-pc bowl set and Friendship Oval divided dish (which I confiscated when I moved out on my own). But I just recently realized that these vintage treasures sometimes end up in the most unlikely of places: thrift stores! Now I’m a regular. So I will be sharing with you weekly the goods that I uncover.
Over the past couple of weeks I have had two fairly successful trips to Goodwill. The first time I picked up this gorgeous, well-kept set of Butterfly Gold 2 bowls.
I also came across this small Square Flowers (Verde) bowl (wish there were more of those!) and a medium-sized Spring Blossom 2 bowl. I love the green!
