The tripping part I had previously mentioned? It occurred in a Goodwill which although I do not frequently visit due to the distance from my house, I have had pretty good luck in before. There, in the middle of nowhere, I found the snowflake casserole, Amish blue butterprint casserole, and green primary mixing bowl...all sitting together on a shelf...all only $1.99 each. *Insert faint here* In my area the primary mixing bowls appear quite hard to find. Thus far, aside from the small blue bowl, this is the only primary I have EVER found in a thrift. Also, I found the lime green rimmed lunch plate for a quarter, the regency green dinner plate and creamer for $1 each and my mom also found me the Pyrex Bundt pan made in France.
There was still more...amazingly. The cookie jar, three spice of life canisters and butterfly gold butter tub, gravy boat, and under plate were all in the 25 cent to $2 range. I also found 5 additional Bradford House dinner plates which I had previously posted about which brought me to the nice and even stack of 8 you see pictured.
I even managed to snag some pretty sweet non-Pyrex goodies as well. My favorite has to be the Bell 500 rotary telephone. I was quite leery about this purchase as it was definitely beyond my realm of experience, but since it was only $3, I took a leap. I did find out that it was made in 1979 with the "Not for Sale" markings but was officially sold in 1983. I became quite tickled with the purchase after I was able to test it, with great relief I found out that the phone can receive calls, call out, and still rings. The only thing I really noticed wrong with it is that there is more static on the line than I would expect to be normal and the hang up buttons do not light. Overall though, completely worth the money. Also pictured is Girl Scout canteen from the 1960's manufactured by Mirro. On the back of the cover is the "GS" logo as well on imprinted in the metal canteen itself.
Finally, we have this rather intriguing book from 1953. Although cameras are again not my specialty, I really liked this.
It even has some lovely black and white photos as examples throughout the directional and technique text.
And as would be expected, we also have some directional step by step photos.
Well that's all for now folks.
Happy thrifting and (to all my U.S. readers) also have a Happy Thanksgiving this week as well!
