Berry Fabulous Goodies!

Lately I'm sad to report that the thrifting pickings have been quite slim.  Saturday, however, I did get an opportunity to zip around and hit up my local favorites, two Goodwill stores and a Salvation Army.  Although I didn't find much, I did come home with a couple fabulous goodies...and the fact that everything was such a good deal does make up some for the lack of quantity. 

Blissfully shabby huh?  Yes, that clock does look eerily similar to one I purchased less than a month ago...but it was only $ worked...and it matches at least right?  It's sitting on a cute little Pyrex coffee pot without lid or percolator parts. The small berry bowls are made by Corning and I'm pretty sure I have some dinnerware pieces which match.  The small frigie lid was a score for 79cents...and I mean to be honest, can you ever have enough frigie lids?  I don't know about anyone else, but I am always finding lidless frigies.  The custard cups were all a quarter each and are an older type with the dollar sign stamp.  The two pairs of tongs were on my wish list for some time.  The one pair is Ecko made in USA and the other pair are promotional ones from a local dairy; judging by the format of the phone number they are quite old.  Finally I found "the good stuff" so to speak.  The Pyrex wheat divided casserole and lid were actually found at two separate stores but the total still came to less than $4. 

Here is a close up of the tray.  I love the graphic on this one, it's such an ideal autumn scene. 

The cute little coffee pot do-dads actually have an interesting story, I found the larger of the two awhile ago and was quite tickled to find the matching single cup one for less than a dollar this past weekend. 

Finally, in a moment of impulse, I purchased three of these strawberry glasses made by Anchor Hocking and dated 1989.  Although they are newer than most of the goodies I purchase, how could I leave their berry cute design sitting there...especially since they were only 39 cents each.  

Well that's all for now folks, hopefully this week will bring some more goodies my way.  Happy thrifting!


  1. I think it's the time of year for the thrifts to start being a little bare. It's a bummer for sure! Love those berry glasses!
