Before showing you some of my thrifty finds I am sending all my prayers and best wishes for family, friends and fellow bloggers on the east coast in the path of hurricane Irene!  Stay Safe!

I haven't been thrifting much lately but wanted to join in Diann's party.  I have some random thrift finds I haven't shared with you previously
 Two jadeite in rough shape for 50 cents and a bowl in the Sussex pattern that I'm collecting for 25 cents
I could not pass up this JAJ made in England (Pyrex) bowl for $1
I have not been able to find out the name of this pattern but it has very nice fall colors
JAJ patterns are so different from the Pyrex made in the USA
These items were bought on 1/2 price day.  Love the ceramic pumpkin and the cute number game! 
This white candlestick was 50 cents
and this cute basket was 25 cents

That's it for some random thrifty finds
I'm joining Diann at The Thrifty Groove for her fun 

Thought I would end with a cute Tiger picture.  I will be seeing him on Monday and as always I can't wait!

I liked the English Pyrex Bowl - so different then ours.

But what I really like is that last picture - he is getting to be so big and he is still so cute. He is growing up grandma!

Sweet Tiger.

The English Pyrex is a bit hard to find, makes the hunt more interesting.

You always make me want to hit the thrift stores...and I think today is the day it will happen:) That little Tiger is just getting cuter and cuter but I don't have to tell you that!

You've made some great buys! I've never seen the Sussex pattern you're collecting. If I see a piece, I'll grab it for you!!! :)

That little Tiger looks like one happy boy! You made some great buys ... I looked for several years for the Sussex dinner plates to use in a Halloween tablescape! Never did find any! It is a nice pattern ... thanks for sharing and thanks for visiting my site.

Fabulous thrifty finds as always Linda. I collect Jadeite, so I'm loving that bowl. You're going to be a great thrifting teacher to Tiger when he gets just a little older:-)

Oh my goodness Linda, Tiger is getting SO big! Love all of your finds, especially that JAJ bowl. I've never heard of it before, but you're right, the colors are just perfect for Fall!

Vintage Christine said...

Of course whenever I see Fire-King jadeite my little heart goes pitty-patter even though I've sold off most of mine except for the Swirl mixing bowl set I put together. Something's coming your way, my dear--I'll tell you what it is if you email me.
