Weekend Finds!

This weekend I hit up two estate tag sales and an estate auction (my favorite kind of estate sale!).  I always find great stuff at auctions, and this one had some great things as well that I was interested in, but I didn't really bring any of it home with me.  While I was out, I discovered that my favorite thrift store in Joplin, which was destroyed in the tornado last May, reopened two weeks ago.  This place always has amazing stuff, and they didn't fail me Saturday.  How I have missed this place!

So, here are my weekend finds:

A set of 8 Libbey highball glasses.  These look like they are brand new - the gold has no flaws at all.  A steal at $4 for the set!  From the recently reopened thrift shop (no, I will not tell you the name of it!).

Three "D" handle Pyrex mugs in Spring Blossom pattern.  50 cents each.  (Also from the unnamed thrift shop).

Lastly, I picked up a couple of records at one of the tag sales.  Ike and Tina Turner - Greatest Hits, and Donovan's Greatest Hits.  $1 each.

I hope you all had a great weekend of fun finds as well!


  1. Now you have a set of "Don Draper" Glasses! You should watch Mad Men!

  2. Great finds, all. Of course, now you've got me humming "Mellow Yellow" all day! LOL

    1. I can think of far worse songs to have stuck in your head!

  3. Some locations of thrifts need to stay secret don't they! I like the glasses. They would be perfect for ice tea on the porch!

  4. Do these leafy glasses look good with your leafy plates? Did you ever figure out the brand of the plates?
