Treasure Trove Tuesday - This Week's Thrifting Finds

26 July
A few yard sales and a couple of thrift store trips and I have quite a bit to share today for Treasure Trove Tuesday!

Thrifting Finds

I love these sweet little planters, they are so sweet and would be great repurposed in a baby's nursery to hold Q-tips, cotton swabs, diaper pins, etc. I could see a whole little collection of them holding different baby goodies!

Unfortunately they don't sell very quickly, I have several of them in my space at the antique mall. But I just couldn't pass it up! Price .50 cents, Value $6 - $8... eventually :o)

I thought this needlepoint was pretty. I think it would look better with the frame painted white.

Price $2.99, Value $16 - $18.

This is a pretty little baby pink, polka dot curtain panel. I didn't have enough room to lay it out but you get the idea!

Price $1.00, Value $12 - $14.

I bought this bag of little figurines...

Because I wanted this little sweetie!

Price $2.99 for the whole bag, Value $6 - $8 for this little guy.

This little wooden shoe is ceramic!

Price $1.99, Value $8 - $10

A very unique gravy boat, you could pour in either direction! No markings.

Price $1.99, Value $10 - $12

A quilted glove box. These make for some really pretty storage in a craft room!

Price $1.99, Value $6 - $8

I found an entire box of old music books at a new thrift store in town! I picked out these with the pretty ladies. They are from the 1920's. I am going to try framing them and selling them that way in my booth.

Price .50 cents each, Value $16 - $18 each if framed.

I love this pretty pastel yo-yo pillow. It had a nasty stain but I used my trusty stain removal technique and I can't even tell where it was now! Check out my technique here: How to Remove Stains From Vintage Linens.

Isn't this the cutest little baby robe?

Look at the sweet embroidery :o)

This train case is so tiny! It has some damage and needs to be cleaned desperately!

Price .50 cents, Value, $12 - $14.

I love this pretty picture!

Price $6.99, Value $28 - $30.

These two little mirrored shelves are cute aren't they? I have one in my space at the antique mall now that is missing the mirror and has been painted white.

Price $2.50 for the pair, Value $10 - $12 each.

These two jars in wicker holders remind me a little of demijohn bottles!

Price $1 for the pair, Value $8 - $10 each.

A vintage Brownie camera. It was only $1 and I'm adding it to my collection :o)

This old jar is cool! It's from Richland Thrifty Drug in Richland, WA which is the town I purchased it in.

Price $1, Value $18 - $20.

I think this platter and the matching (but different) plates are so cool!

I have not ever seen anything like them have you? I love how the deer are all in different poses.

They are marked "TST Latona" on the bottom. Upon a little quick research I believe TST stands for Taylor, Smith & Taylor. I found a similar platter with a blue border and a trout platter on eBay going for a pretty good price but I need to do some more research.

Price $4.99, Value $45 - $50 (?)

I gathered up a bag of vintage Christmas goodies at one sale!

I love this little gnome Santa, I may have to keep him!

Price .10 cents, Value $6 - $8.

Ornaments priced at .10 cents each, Value $2 - $3 each.

A cute flocked little deer. Price .10 cents, Value $ $6 - $8.

A Christmas record by Gene Autry.

Price .25 cents, Value $8 - $10.

An old Mazola cookbook.

From 1938!

Price .25 cents, Value $4 - $5.

These glasses are very large so I don't know if they are vintage or not but they sure are cute! They went directly to my space at the antique mall (hence the cluttered background).

Price $1 for the pair, Value $14 - $16 for the pair.

And a drink recipe glass.

Price $1.50, Value $8 - $10.

Whew! That was a lot of stuff!

  1. Wow lots of great stuff. I love the Brownie camera and the little elf Santa!

  2. I would pick the vintage Christmas items as my favorites, but the baby items are a close second. Great treasures!

  3. I have the camera and it is my favorite. I love that baby gown.

  4. That is a lot of stuff. The camera looks like the one I had as a kid.

    Let me know how the framed music sheets sell once you frame them. I have a ton of them listed in lots in my shop and they aren't selling very well - framing them might be a good idea for me then.

  5. WOW! So many great treasures here. Hard to pick my favorite.

  6. Thanks Tania! I always wanted to know how to make a whiskey sour and now I do! Ha! That was a lot of great stuff. I love seeing all the treasures you find. So glad you share with us. :)

    1. Ha Ha! Well I'm glad you found the recipe! Thanks for stopping by!
