Fall Finds

Hello all and I hope you all are having a wonderful autumn.  It's my favorite season and thankfully it treated me well with the vintage finds.  Taaadaa!  First up, I found the Old Town Blue gravy boat, Bromwells, flour sifter, and little tin Jello thingys.  I found the Corning promotional mug from 1974 at Goodwill. The white apple is some type of sugar dish and also pictured is a woodland shaker. The little cook books all cost fifty cents each at an antique store.  At the same store, I found the General Electric clock (which works!) for $5.    The two Pyrex plates as well as fridgie lid all came from Goodwill for less than $1 each.  The pumpkin was an accidental find.  Although not vintage, I didn't purchase it nor did I intend to grow just kinda sprouted up from where I tossed my old pumpkin last year.  I was excited to find it :)
On to the utensils!  The three prong fork and spatula were a dollar each at the "Clock" store.  The pizza cutter came from Goodwill and my dad picked up the teal handled "Batter Beater" was something my dad picked up for me at a yard sale for ten cents!

Now on to the mystery box that I found sitting happily on the shelf at the "clock" store.  Whatever could it be?

I open it up, and to my delight, mint condition Pyrex.  The FIRST mint condition new in box Pyrex I have found to date.  

The was square flowers.  Not exactly my favorite.  But since boxed Pyrex is a rareness around here, even at the $25 price tag, I bit.  I don't regret it a bit.  

Furthermore, I also have made some progress on my Hoosier cabinet.  The flour bin is now firmly secured and both shelves in the top section are in.  Next up, I just have to secure the trim, put the back on, stain everything, and put the doors on then the top half is done.  The bottom half, well it's kinda just a hollow box still.  I've got to work on it some more.  

Well that's all for now folks, happy thrifting and hopefully everyone is having a fantastic autumn. 


  1. I love all of your vintagey finds! And hey...don't under estimate Verde Square Flower! It looks really cute stacked between pinks and turquoise! That was a great find!

  2. I love love that clock! And of course the Pyrex. ;)
