VINTAGE & THRIFTY

Here are some of my latest vintage thrifty finds. 
All came from thrift stores.

I 'think' this is a Verde pattern #503 1-1/2 qt refrigerator dish without the lid.  It was only $2 and since I love Pyrex...home it came
This vintage tablecloth is in pretty poor condition but I love the colors
And the pattern so for $1 I am taking a chance it will clean up or it can be used as a cutter piece
 I love vintage cookbooks and have quite a collection of the 
Betty Crocker series
 These remind me of growing up with a Mom who loved cookbooks and would read them like a novel!  
I was excited to find these pieces to add to my small but growing collection of this pattern called Sussex.  The plate was 75 cents and the bowls were 2 for 70 cents

I have slowed down on my milk glass collecting unless a piece is unusual and this one qualifies.  I love the design
since it looks like Lilly of the Valley to me and for $2
I added this to my cart
**This was made by Westmoreland and the only Lily of the Valley piece they made according to my research**
Thanks for taking a look at my Vintage-Thrifty items and to see more visit these two parties I'm joining this week
with Suzanne at Colorado Lady

Hugs,
Linda

The milk glass vase was very unique, I've never seen that pattern and the glow through the rim makes it special. Thanks for sharing.

My mother also collects cook books to sit and page through rather than try the recipes. I remember the Betty Crocker series well.

You hit the jackpot!!! Of course, I love the Pyrex fridgie but I'm digging the tablecloth and your Sussex china. Who makes it? It's new to me!

I want to go thrifting with you! You find such great things. I love the tablecloth.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who reads cookbooks like they're novels!

Betty Crocker Party Cookbook! Was it lit with a divine glow? Or maybe a birthday candle light glow? Great finds!

A very nice assortment of thrift finds.

The milk glass vase is really pretty...I don't think I've ever seen any with Lily of the Valley design. I have one dinner plate in the Sussex pattern hanging in the hall with a few other brown transferware pieces.

Oh def Lily of the Valley! So pretty! Love the dishes too!

Diann said...

All fun finds Linda! I would have snatched up the tablecloth too. The colors are so unique and the design is wonderful. I have been cutting back on the milkglass too. Unless it is unique like you said or it is something I think would work great for a redo to be sold. Thanks for joining TTF. I hope you and Mr. Have a great Memorial weekend! And Yay to being able to comment again!

Oooooo! That Lily of the Valley vase is the coolest thing I have seen in a long time!

And it reminds me that I need to go out in my Mom's backyard and see if her little Lily of the Valley plants are blooming yet............

SavannahGranny said...

I always love seeing what you find. You have good thrift stores in your area. I especially love the Westmoreland piece. The lily of the valley is so sweet. I would say you got a deal on that one. Hugs, Ginger
