Thrifty Friday Finds

I promised to show you what I bought at this diggers antique store called 
I saw lots of things I liked but the prices seemed high.  I found two things and one wasn't marked.  When I asked she made me a good price so I realized she would bargain with you.  It was time to move on to our next stop, so these are the only two items I purchased.
Pottery of course! 
The white planter was $1 (NapcoWare) and the sweet little turquoise was $3
I have a good size collection of white pottery now and plan to showcase it in my home somewhere soon. 
I researched the little turquoise piece and found this out.  Made by Vitreous China, San Antonio, Texas.  I found these listed as Alamo Pottery and made in the late 40's - 50's.  This piece is a small tulip bowl.  The color is really pretty and a great addition to my pottery collection.
If I ever get up that way I will visit that store again and try to bargain more! 

We then went to Seneca, SC and found 'thrift shop row'....REALLY!  About 5 or 6 thrift shops on this one street.  And yes I stopped at almost all of them, but really didn't buy much!
This was a fun book,  I only collect S&P Orphans but it's a good reference guide and at $2 I decided to buy it.
I never pass up a good glass container especially if it's .25
My Mom has an ice cream scoop like this one and I love it so this .50 version came home with me. 
My best find at the thrifts was this Japanese made flower frog.
I have quite the collection of pottery flower frogs now and plan to do a series on them soon.  Only $2 so a bargain!

What have you found lately?

Come back on Monday for a giveaway!

Wishing you JOY,

I have a thing for salt and pepper shakers, years ago I had a number of sets but not anymore as they have vanished I suspect one of my daughters got rid of them

Glad you found some more pottery for your collection. Really nice pieces. I have some small pottery pitchers and every time I look at them, I think of you. That store does look like a "diggers" fun place to go.
Thanks for sharing your finds.

Steve just told me he needs another glass jar for his coffee. See your jar makes me think I should look at thrift shops first.

Sounds like you had a great junkin' adventure. You always find such fun treasures at the best prices. Even if price guides are outdated, they're always a great reference for identification.
