Thrift Scores: Pugs, Giraffes, and Pyrex!

01 April 2013

I had a lovely day of thrifting (and even a few of the first yard sales of the season!) this weekend.   It was a perfect spring Saturday full of sunshine & I was just so excited to be out of the house and driving around the city I love.  We drove a bit out to one of the suburbs to seek out some of my favorite thrift stores and lucked out with an unexpected half price day!  I am always so excited to find a nice mix of practical AND adorable!

I had a few great Pyrex scores to start with.  A cute little 'Old Town Blue' gravy boat,  a rare small solid orange refrigerator dish, and a pretty aqua pie plate.  Thanks to a great little flea market vendor and 1/2 price day at the Salvation Army, these 3 gems were less than $4 total!

This little Nordic Ware giraffe whisk was just to darn cute to pass up!  And only 50 cents!

Maybe these are too practical to be cool, but I am really excited for this brand new set of 4 large melamine bowls with lids.  I have a bunch of mismatched mixing bowls that are making a bit of a mess in my cabinet & these will not only add some color, but help me get my cabinets under control.  I found them on Amazon for $45 and 5 star reviews, so $5 is a total steal!  Plus, with the matching lids, they are perfect for transporting to summer picnics and potlucks!

Who doesn't love pugs?!  Can you believe I found these ridiculously cute little salt & pepper shakers at a thrift store for a dollar?!  Who would give these up?

After a hard day of thrifting, we had a few friends over for our first BBQ of the year & a viewing of the return of Dr. Who - the absolute perfect day as far as I'm concerned!   How was your weekend?


  1. What a great haul! The thrifting in my new town is terrible... Such a bummer. That giraffe whisk is awesome.

  2. WOW! I wish that I had the patience and the skill to find thrift stores that had amazing items like these. Right now I can't do much financially but when i can I hope that I can haul some nifty items like these.
