Thrifting Frenzy


In the last few weeks I've picked up a few things here and there at the thrift.

Some to keep (of course)!

And a few things for the booth.

One item that is already at Relics is this afghan..........


It.  Is.  HUGE! 

*   *   *   *

Both of these will make it to the booth eventually........


You know I can't resist suitcases (and they sell quickly). 

 *   *   *   *

This coffeepot has all of its pieces........



Some fun glassware.......



A rug........
 


And one Pyrex piece........


Here's the problem:  I don't collect this pattern.

But it's turquoise.

So now maybe I should collect this pattern.

Or change my Pyrex rule to:  Keep all turquoise Pyrex no matter what the pattern is

That sounds fair.

  3. That afghan is great, I love the colors!
    Keep the Pyrex! My rule is turquoise, black and yellow. Keeps me from going too crazy with it but gives me a good variety.

  4. I love how everyone has a different pyrex rule -- my rule is casserole dishes. Mostly 472s.

    I think keeping all turquoise is pretty fair! That pattern is really lovely.

    1. HA! Yes, Pyrex has such a wide range of colors, pieces, and patterns that it appeals to so many folks!

  5. If it makes your decision easier, that is the only size that pattern comes in. It was a promotional called Meadow. And it's turquoise. Keep it.

  8. My vote...keep all turquoise Pyrex no matter what the pattern. That afghan is beautiful. I love the 3 dimensional yellow flowers. So pretty and sunny. The glasses were a fun find. And, I didn't realize how popular old suitcases were. Love them!

  12. I love old suitcases...I can see how they would go fast. I took one and painted it for Logan and stored all her baby mementos in there. :)

  15. I do believe that's a promotional piece of Pyrex, so,it's the only piece in that pattern.

  16. Definitely keep the turquoise Pyrex - it's beautiful!

  17. If you collect turquoise (as I do), then you have to keep that. The pattern name is Meadow and it is a promotional piece so it is the only piece in that pattern. KEEP IT!!! :-)

  22. Hi! This is first time here. I love finding new blogs. I've been buying stuff for the last year for a future booth and I love learning more about vintage goods! I *remember* afghans like that from my childhood. Yikes! ♥
