Treasure Trove Tuesday - This Week's Thrifting Finds

Well I think yard sale season is officially over in my neck of the woods 😡

Thankfully though we have quite a few good thrift shops so I can still get some thrift shopping in!

I have some goodies to share from said shopping!

thrifting finds

I'm especially on the hunt for vintage Christmas items this time of year. My mom and I will be redoing my booths at the antique mall Friday for Christmas.

I love this cute little gold angels.


Marked "JAPAN" on the bottom. I think these were made for Howard Holt.

Price .99 cents each, Value $10 - $12 for the pair.


I also found these cute white Santa mugs. They may have been painted at one time, it's hard to be sure.


Price .99 cents each, Value $4 - $5 each.


That was it for Christmas goodies this time around, here are the rest of my finds.

I'm really excited about this little curio cabinet. I have been looking for something to display my growing Gurley candle collection in. I want to be able to stage it for each holiday.


It's made of plastic but I have an idea for a makeover to make it awesome... stay tuned!!

Price $4.99, Value - I'm keeping it.


I thought this framed movie poster was cool.


I don't know much about movie posters but I think this one has been trimmed to fit in the frame which would reduce the value. I also couldn't find much information about this one online.

Price $5.99, Value $20 - $25.


Old sporting goods seem to sell pretty well at the antique mall, I think I'll hang this one on the wall to act as a shelf while it's for sale!


When I looked on eBay to try and determine a value I was shocked, they go for pretty good money, some up into the $200 range! I don't think this one is near that though.

Price $6.99, Value... I think I can sell it for $40 - $45... we'll see!


I love these Pity Puppy and Pity Kitty prints by Gig. Check out this post to read more about this author: Treasure Trove Tuesday.

Price Free!, Value $8 - $10 (when framed).


I am really loving the look of groups of brass candlesticks lately... like this one...


Price $1.99 for the three smaller ones together, $2.99 for the larger one, Value $18 - $20 for the group.


Vintage toolboxes are always a good seller.


This one with the rusty lid is my favorite.


Price $1 each, Value $20 - $24 each.


These book ends are iron and SO heavy... but kind of cute too!


Price $2.50, Value $14 - $16.


At first I thought this book was a Reader's Digest judging from the cover.


But it's not! It's a 1929 copy of Bambi!

Price $1, Value $12 - $14.


An old Asbestos Sad Iron.


My grandma used an old iron like this as a door stop, I still have hers.

Price $2, Value $8 - $10.


I'm adding this to my collection of garden tools. I need to find a unique way to display all of them next summer!

Price .50, Value - I'm keeping it.


Cookie cutters are a good seller at the antique mall. I've never seen any like these before.


Price .10 cents each, Value $1.50 - $2.00 each.


Linens are another great seller, I think the embroidery on this one is so pretty!


Price $1, Value $4 - $6.


An adorable little baby bib.

Price $1, Value $4 - $6.


This is a newer print but I think it's so cute!!

Price $4.99, Value $16 - $18.


And lastly, I found a bunch of vintage Melmac pieces.


The two bowls have a pretty little rose on them.


And the platters have this fun swirl design. I buy random pieces whenever I find them at a good price and then I put together sets, place settings for four usually with plates, bowls, cups, and a serving piece or two.

Price .99 cents each. Value for a set of dishes for 4 $35 - $40.


So that's it for this week's TTT, have you found any fun treasures lately?
