Thrifty Thursday #29

This week I got started a little bit later than I am used to when I go thrifting. We had plans to meet up with our friends in the next town over and go out for Chinese food, so we decided to combine the trips. I found a few things that left me smiling in time to meet up with my friends.

Pyrex Spice of Life Store 'n See Container

I was wandering the aisles losing hope that I would find anything good when I spotted this Pyrex Spice of Life Store ‘n See Container. I squeaked and squatted down to pick it up really quickly. I paid $5 for her which is the very most I would ever pay for one of these, but I haven’t found one in a long time and I need to add more of these to my collection. I only have 3 more of these containers in various sizes so I definitely needed this one.

Pyrex 1 cup measuring cup

I also picked up a Pyrex 1 cup liquid measuring cup for $2. I have a few of these things but I have never been able to find the 1 cup size before. I always pick them up when I find them because they are very handy to have around.

 vintage egg separator

I also found this cute little vintage egg separator for 30¢. I like cute vintage utensils and I’m finding them harder and harder to find at the thrifts.

milk glass vase

I also picked up another milk glass vase for $1. I need a few more for my project but when I finish it, I’ll have to show you the results.

All in all this was a decent week. I found some stuff that I wanted and I got to spend some time with couple friends eating the best Chinese food around so I am happy.

Total: $7.30

Thrifty Thursday #22

I found a new piece for 4 of my different collections this week. I have never had that much luck in one week, but I guess this was my week.

Spice of Life counter saver corning corelle

One of the things I picked up was this counter saver to add to my Spice of Life collection for only $2. When I saw it on the shelf, I squeaked and had to check out the price before someone else scooped it up. This is actually the second one I have bought but it is in better condition and a price I couldn’t say no to.

I decided to check out a new to me thrift store this week and I was glad I did. The next 3 pieces were bought there. They have this section they call the boutique section where I found all of my pieces. The funny thing is, these definitely aren’t boutique prices. I love this place and I’m planning to add it to my usual thrifting route.

Spring Blossom Pyrex casserole 473

One of the pieces I found at the new thrift was this Spring Blossom Pyrex 473 casserole for $3. It’s in amazing condition with barely any utensil marks or scratches. It didn’t have a lid but I’m pretty sure  I have an extra one in this size laying around somewhere.

Bach bust

I also found this Bach bust to add to my bust collection for only $1.

Avon vase

I also picked up another blue Avon vase to add to my collection for $1. These definitely aren’t boutique prices and that makes me very happy. I love finding thrift stores that price their stuff low enough to make me happy.

Total: $8

Thrifty Thursday #20

This week I had the best thrift haul of my entire life. It’s rather funny too, because Prince Charming and I were wandering the aisles and lamenting the fact that one of the cashiers at the thrift store that we were in had said that they tended to get a lot of Pyrex/Corelle in and we hadn’t really found any. Then I turned the corner onto an aisle I usually pay very little attention to and found THIS:

Pyrex Corelle Spring Blossom glasses Crazy Daisy

I forgot that these existed. I had never seen any in the wild before. I pick up a lot of stuff while I am out thrifting but Spring Blossom is what I will always keep my eye out for. I am now the proud owner of 5(!) Spring Blossom glasses for a buck a piece.

Pyrex Corning Gemco Spice of Life oil and vinegar cruets

I also found these Spice of Life oil and vinegar cruets for $3 each. I am always drawn to the Gemco pieces with chrome lids. They are my favorite. These had to come home with me.

Total: $11

Thrifty Thursday #17

This week Prince Charming stayed in town at our usual thrifts. We found a few things that we loved at the right price.

Kitten Planner

The first thing I picked up was this 2015-2016 planner full of cute pictures of kittens for 30¢. I’m trying to make my life more organized and I figured this was a cheap find to help out.


I also picked up this metal spring like paper sorter doohickey thing for $1. I picked it up not knowing what it was and not caring. I wanted it bad. When I got it home I put it on my desk and put the kitten planner and a few notebooks in it and realized how useful it would be.

curio shelf

I also found this curio shelf for $5. I have always wanted one and this guy was the right price. I need to glue the door back together and a few other small fixes, but he is perfect. Sadly, every time I pick up a small shelf thing like this Prince Charming asks me what I am going to put on it. For something this cute I will find something to put on it. I think I am going to use it to store our candle holders full of shells that we get each time we take a trip there. It will be a cute way to store our memories.

Pyrex Corning Gemco Spice of Life Ketchup pump

When I saw this baby on the shelf, I squealed in excitement and quickly snatched it up. $1 for a  Pyrex Spice of Life ketchup pump was just too good for me to pass up. I love it.

Pyrex Corning Gemco Spice of Life sugar shaker

I also picked up this matching sugar shaker for $1.

hexagonal mirror

I also found this hexagonal mirror that I picked up for $1. I will probably end up painting the frame in the future to make it fit more with my stuff but I like it.

Total: $9.30
