How are you all? How is everything in secondhand shopping land? It's still alright around here... 

I bought this hand keychain. It was 49cents. I also bought that lovely orange retro treasure box. I posed it with my retro scrapbook... my favourite scrapbook I own, I think! 

I got 2 & a half pairs of these vintage Rosti utensils, which were made in Denmark. Don't the orange ones match my new Catherineholm pot perfectly (lol, I don't know if I will ever get tired of showing this pot off...). Anyways, these were pretty cheap ($1.49) & not all chopped up with dents & stuff like a lot of plastic items I come across. 

Put these together. I really don't know how many sets of salt & pepper shakers I've got, especially since I have so much stuff packed away. These need a good cleaning.

The very tiny bit of thrift store vintage Christmas (don't think I'll find very much this year). 

Kneehuggers! I bought these when I was in the states last week. & isn't the one in the shoe adorbs? Antique market buys... cheap.. the larger one chimes.

These I bought for my instagram or eBay sales. .. however... not including until I get used to USPS. 

& lastly, from an antique market, this 1959 Holt Howard candlestick holder... only $3 because of a teeny chip on the backside. 

Lastly, some Vernors cups! Wanted to pay homage to Windsor/Detroit area & well couldn't afford what they wanted for their Boblo merch... so these were the right price!

I am cleaning out my Pyrex collection, just really need duplicates, not like 8 or 10. I think my hoard might start to cause problems in my relationship (I think it already is). It's a bit hard to sell locally on Craigslist, people who check it already have all the common crap!

Greetings everyone! I'm back from my trip home to the Windsor-Detroit Area. I thrifted down the 401 & visited an antique market in Michigan. The large Pyrex booth was no longer there, such disappointment, but booths charging $25 for a 502 Primary & a set of Cinderella Butterprint bowls for $135 were. Needless to say, no Pyrex came home with me! There was lots of vintage Christmas, 'tis the season. So that did come home with me! 

All that Christmas is still packed away, so enjoy the kneehuggers I bought on eBay! These were BIN for $14.99, free shipping. 

These were a promotional item & were once given away if you paid shipping only, at that time I got a set new in the box. I think it was 4 per family. At the time they were selling for $100 NIB on eBay. You can still sell them for like $65 NIB on eBay, so when we saw these at the antique market, we bought them. Don't know if these will sell used, but we'll try! We have a buyer if they don't sell that will buy for just a few dollars over cost that we know, so at least we'll make a couple bucks. 

If you are on my instagram, you already know about my find that was I was super psyched about. My Catherineholm pot for $4.99 at Value Village.

I also found another pack of unopened vintage Halloween treat bags at the thrift!

Weird to walk into a thrift store late, late in the evening & find a piece of Pyrex that isn't Old Orchard or Forest Fancies or that hasn't been dishwashered to death, plus, I don't think I have this... but I cannot be sure. 

I also rescued this Santa for $4. I need him for my Santa collection. I can't wait to bring out the Christmas, but I am still trying to get stuff organized from when I moved into our place in June or May or whenever, LOL. 

Hope you had some fabulous stuff to share! I've got more to share (of course), but it's all waiting to be unpacked...

thrift on!
