Treasure Trove Tuesday - This Week's Thrifting Finds

09 January
I'm back with Treasure Trove Tuesday finds! Are you excited?!

It has been awhile, hasn't it? I just was getting behind on getting things listed in my shop so I decided to try and stay away from the thrift shops for a while.

I was semi-good... I picked up little something I couldn't resist here and there but not too bad. So today's TTT is actually what I have found over the last few weeks instead of just last week 😊

And if you are new, TTT is where I share my latest thrifting finds for my Etsy shop, Little Boho Cottage... and some to keep of course!

New finds for my Etsy shop!

Let's start with this vintage Avon California perfume bottle and box from 1976.

Someone had donated like a TON of old Avon bottles to the thrift store. Most of them don't appeal too much to me and I don't really think they would sell either.

But this one is just pretty!

Price $1.99, Value $10 - $12.

Thimbleville... 😂... isn't it cute? What a great display for a thimble collection!

Price $1.99, Value $15 - $20.

I love this little planter with bamboo shoots on it, there are no markings.

Price .99 cents, Value $12 - $14.

The colors on this basket are so pretty.

Price .50 cents, Value $12 - $15.

I think my mom will love this find... I love him too and he is like 2 inches thick!!

Price $3.99, Value $25 - $30 (if I can bear to part with him!)

These are for a project I have in mind. I've been collecting trivets like these and I think I might have enough... now I need to get busy!

Price .99 cents, keeping.

I've been collecting vintage colored glasses for my kitchen. Oh, and if you missed my kitchen reveal you can see that here: Updated 1960's Kitchen Reveal.

So, I have lots of vintage goblets but none that are just plain drinking glasses.

These were two for .99 cents, keeping!

And I am definitely keeping this!! I love it!

Price 3.99 (they knocked the price down $1 because one of the wicker scrolls is broken on the side.

It never hurts to ask if they will take the price down when the item is damaged, you never know unless you ask!

Check out this adorable bread box!!

It's a Beauty Box and the door opens to reveal a built-in cutting board! Cool right?!

Price $9.99, Value $50 - $60.

And an entire bolt of vintage fabric! My daughter actually found this and called me to see if I wanted it... ummm....YES!

It would be pretty to mix with other more modern fabrics and upholster a chair, kind of like THIS!

I can't quite make out the writing on the right side of the copyright symbol, can you?

Price $8.99 for the whole bolt, Value $10 - $12 a yard.

That's it this time around, did you see anything that you like?

If you haven't visited the shop in awhile, there are lots of new things listed, Little Boho Cottage!

    Wow, great finds!!

  2. Wow, great finds! Love that bread box! Never seen one like it. The Avon bottle is cute. I'm not one to buy Avon much either, but that is pretty. Like the boho basket, the thimble shelves, and the trivets. Can't wait to see what you do with those! Also liked that dollhouse you bought the other day. And that fabric is so you Tania!

    OK, I NEED that pig breadboard!! LOL! You've found lots of great things!

  4. I knew you'd like the cutting board!


  5. I know, isn't that breadbox cool, I've never seen one with the frog either and I looked and can't find one now either!


  6. Re: the bolt of fabric. It looks like it read Original Design by Hero, SC [South Carolina] Maybe you can start with that information and see where it takes you.

  7. That bread box is fabulous! And I love the pig cutting board, very in style right now. I think you'd be surprised at how many Avon perfume bottles are considered collectibles! I've got quite the collection going now all I have to do is get them listed in my etsy shop lol! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm! xo Kathleen|Our Hopeful Home

  8. Thanks Kathleen. I just don't see Avon selling very well but maybe I just don't know which ones are the desirable ones.


  9. My mom had figured out the Hero part but not SC... maybe that's what it is, we thought IC but didn't know what the heck that would be!


  10. Hi Kathy! That sounds so cute except that the bread box sold and is with it's new owner now.

    Maybe I'll keep my eye out for another breadbox that would work, I do have a whole mini kitchen set that is too big for this dollhouse!


  11. Hi Tania, Now that you have the dollhouse going, that frog breadbox is a Grammy's kitchen waiting to happen: use the shelf support as a plate rail and wainscot the walls in 2 different colors (tiny print wallpaper, contac paper, or scrapbook paper. Add a kitchen table set, rug, cats with bowls, baskets of fruits and veggies, generally short/shallow stuff to the wooden surface, then furnish the box part as the rest of the kitchen. When you open the box, the wood surface doubles the floorscape. It fascinates people. Frogs need a kitchen, right? I betcha that bolt of cloth could also make bed pillow sized covers using both selvaged edges as no-need-to-hem ends. Two lines of stitching and you've got a pillow cover! Love the 70's colors and the Impressionist vibe it has. Needs to be in a room with a print of Van Gogh's Sunflowers!
