Treasure Trove Tuesday - This Week's Thrifting Finds

My daughter and I spent a few hours together yesterday for some mother/daughter time.

We had lunch at a cute little Southern themed diner. They serve things like Shrimp Po' Boys and Fried Okra. Both of these are not common where we are from (Washington State) but oh-so-yummy!

Then we went to Goodwill and Value Village. Lucky for me she likes thrifting too. She looks for clothes and I look at everything else!

I found almost all of this week's treasures at those two thrift shops... and there is a LOT!

Thrifting Finds

It was canister day!

I paid a little more than I normally would for this set but they are so cool! Price $8.97, Value $30 - $40.


A plastic, aqua set. These would be cute in a vintage trailer! Price $2.99, Value $12 - $15.


And a small West Bend tea canister.


Price $1.99, Value $6 - $8.


I also found a couple of pretty gravy boats. This one is marked Johnson Bros Made in England.


Price $2.99, Value $8 - $10.


And this one is unmarked. Price $2.99, Value $8 - $10.


And I fell in love with this little creamer.


It was unmarked and it made me a little nervous because when I asked the lady stocking the shelves at Goodwill how much it was she took it and walked off muttering something about $5. But luckily when she came back it was marked $2.99!

Value $10 - $12.


I love the sweet little birds on the front and the lid. :o)


It is marked Homer Laughlin Made in U.S.A.


These are kind of like Pyrex.


But they are marked Dynaware on the front and Termocrisa Mexico on the bottom. Price $3.99 for the set, Value $15 - $18.


And this little Mid-Century dish is cute with its colorful confetti design!


Marked Poppytrail by Metlox. Price $1.99, Value $8.


A couple of Corning pieces. Price $1.99 each, Value $10 - $12 for the sugar dispenser and $4 - $5 for the cup.


This next item is one of my favorites! "Her Chopper Hopper" is a container for storing false teeth! Ha Ha!


Price $2.99, Value $20 - $25.


I thought this little car planter was so cute! The sticker on the front says Capistrano California. Price $1.99, Value $6 - $8.


A funky Mid-Century ashtray. It seems that smoking is on it's way out but I think this would be cute to hold jewelry! Price $2.99, Value $12 - $15.


A Limoges plate. Price $1.99, Value $6 - $8.


Marked Made in U.S.A. Limoges Jennie Lind Warranted 22K Gold.


I don't think this next piece is very old and it might be missing a piece, I'm not sure. I think it would make a cute cheese tray!


It's marked Revol La Porcelaine France. Price $2.99, Value $10 - $12.


This little cruet oil and vinegar dispenser has cute little dancing people. Price $2.99, Value $10 - $12.


I love this vintage hanky! Price $1, Value $6 - $8.


A large vintage embroidery, "Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread". Price $2.99, Value $16 - $18.


An adorable retro sewing box.


Price $2.99, Value $16 - $18.


It would make a cute purse or lunch box!


A lovely tole painted wooden tray. Price $2, Value $12 - $14.


Isn't the painting sweet!?



And finally, a vintage Gig print titled "Pity Puppy".

Gig, aka Girard Goodenow is known as one of the Big Eyed Masters. He was the painter of Pity Puppies and Pity Kitties. You can see more examples of his work as well as the rest of the Big Eyes Masters here: Big Sad Eyes.


Gig was born in 1912 and passed away in 1984.
