Oh, the carefree days of summer thrifting have come to an end. Teachers go back to work for the first day of our contracts on Monday. School starts next Wednesday. Sigh. Where did summer go?
Not wanting to miss one last chance to seek out some fun finds, I went to a few of my favorite stores yesterday.
First purchase - these fun vintage sign letters. I'm thinking maybe they came from a movie theatre, but I'm not sure. Anyway, I've been wanting to buy some of these for quite a while to put my initials on the wall in my house. Unfortunately, the price they go for online is more than I'm willing to spend. However, these were $3 per letter. I'm pleased to get all three letters for less than I would have to pay for one online. Ideally, I wanted red letters, but blue will work just fine. They had a different style in black, but I didn't care for them too much.
I also picked up this working vintage refrigerator defroster. Now that I'm almost done with my vintage fridge, I'm going to need one of these whenever I defrost it. $4.
And of course, there was Pyrex!
I was very tempted in a beautiful set of pink fridgies (complete with lids) for $50, but I talked myself out of it. I did, however, find a Golden Honeysuckle 2.5 quart rectangular dish (number 055) for $7, and an Opal white unmarked 404 for $4. Now I just need the 403, and I will have the complete Opal mixing bowl set. So far, I have $5.50 total spent on the three pieces I have.
I don't usually have any luck at thrift stores finding Pyrex, but this must have been my day. They had this 8 inch square Flamingo Pink dish for $4. Sounds good to me!
Have a great weekend!
