VINTAGE FINDS

I have found the thrifts pretty slim pickins lately...what they do have is often over priced...these are a couple of my vintage favorites!


You know my love of Pyrex
I found this Colonial Mist 1 Qt Casserole
No lid,  and a few nicks in the blue,  for $1.50 I felt like I had to save it! 

I love Fridgies and this small Butterfly Gold was only 95 cents....that made my day

I also found this cute individual creamer
Made by Hall and only 35 cents!

I'm joining Suzanne for 

Don't forget to come back for Junkin Finds Friday...I will have the link up Thur evening!  
Be sure to use the new button

Happy Junkin,
 Linda

Great finds Linda! I seem to never find an Pyrex with the lids unless I want to pay big bucks for them that is. I would love to have some of the "fridges" with lids. they are so cute and perfect single potion size.

It seems like I have recently seen a ton of people collecting vintage pyrex lately so good for you to find some. I like your header change.

I love what you found...Pyrex reminds me of what we had growing up. Have I mentioned that I love your header and your new font...very nice!

Sir Thrift-A-Lot said...

You lucky girl! You totally scored on that fridgie! I'm still waiting for my first one.

Fabulous finds, Linda, and what bargains. US pyrex tends to be more attractive than UK pyrex IMO. xx

I love refrigerator bowls too, I'm always on the look out for them! Great price:@)

Hi Linda, What great finds, I like the creamer.
I'm having computer problems so I'm not sure if I can post tomorrow. I hope so, but I can read!

Very cute retro looking Pyrex. I didn't know they had fridgies..how cool! LOL! Seriously, I love the brown drip hall creamer. Now that was a bargain! Great finds!

Gina said...

Great finds! The blue Pyrex is one I haven't seen alot of & that creamer is so versatile...you could use it for so much. Nice thrifting!

Hartwood Roses said...

You are definitely the queen of thrift shopping. I agree with you about the slim pickings lately. It takes a little more digging, but the treasures are out there ... there just aren't as many of them. Perhaps, that's what makes them 'treasures'.

Leslie said...

Were you rummaging through my cabinets? I have the exact pyrex bowl you have pictured at the top of your post! :) Love that thing.. Actually, that is part of set a of three.

I would say you did pretty well on the thrift stores left overs.

Glenda/MidSouth said...

You did do well for a slow time. To cold for me to go thrifting. :D It is 16 as I type. Did you get snow this time around?

Marigene said...

I love your new header and button, Linda!
Even though I am not a lover of Pyrex, I do very much like that blue 1 qt. bowl, if I saw one I would probably pick it up!

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Your pyrex reminds me of great times spent with my Grandma... great finds.. hugs ~lynne~

When you find some cheap Pyrex, it's always a good day! That's another pattern I've never seen before. I hope to find a replacement for my covered casserole dish that I broke last year. I still haven't gotten over it!

Nezzy said...

Girl, you definitely hit the jackpot in the vintage Pyrex department there. Just lookin' at those brought back memories of my childhood on the the farm.

God bless ya sweetie and have a fantastic day!!! :o)

Pam said...

Great finds. I wish I knew more about Pyrex. I see it at the thrift stores, but I'm never sure whether it's a rere piece or not. Your blue one is very pretty.

Deb said...

Love the creamer...wish I kept mine!

Jacqueline said...

What a fun blue pyrex baker. That color is just wonderful. I don't think I have ever seen one that color. How fun. Thanks for sharing your great finds.

Susan said...

I love that blue pyrex bowl!! The hall creamer was a real find! What great finds Linda! I have not found many things in the Goodwill lately. They are over pricing everything anymore!

grunge-queen said...

Love the new header and look (may not be that new as it's been a while since I've visited?). I have not heard of Hall. Hull pottery, yes. Anyway it is sweet; I like the look.

Chatty Crone said...

Gosh I wish I had kept my pyrex - I would have given them to you - you would have liked them.

I love that Colonial Mist, the color is fantastic, one of my favorite shades of blue. TFS!
