Recent Thrift Store Finds

By Sara In AZ

Y’all know that I have definitely been hitting up the thrift stores around here lately, I’ve just been remiss in showing you all what I’ve found. So let’s all check out my recent thrifting finds!

I found this really cool vintage EJS spun aluminum bullet light.


I think these vintage mosaic tile trays are really neat and I thought the shape of this one was super cool too.


I found these vintage Progress wall sconces, Mint In Box, at my local Restore.


I found these Salem Biscayne bowls at the local Goodwill.


I could not resist this cute little Holt Howard Christmas Angel.


Hee! I thought this vintage Enesco “drunk guy” mug was too funny to pass up.


I thought these vintage bar glasses were pretty cool and atomic looking.


I thought this vintage souvenir ashtray was really sweet and I like that amoeba shape too!


And last, but not least…..I found this really sweet piece of vintage plaid barkcloth.  It is actually a fairly large piece, but that is hard to tell from the pic since it’s all folded up.


How about y’all??? Anyone out there have some really great  thrifting scores lately?

      Thanks Ruth! I knew you’d love the barkcloth, and it’s always best when you can get it cheap isn’t it! 🙂

    I LOVE the mosaic tray. I have a collection of those that I keep on my back porch where they keep a beautiful vintage tile plant stand company! Great blog BTW!

    I have those same bar glasses, but in a taller size! I love them, they are my daily drinkers, heh. That bullet light was a freaking awesome find!

      That’s SO cool that you have the same glasses in a larger size Andrea! I’d use those all the time too if I had them in a bigger size. I know, I just could not pass up that bullet light, even though we don’t have a use for it…..yet. 🙂

    I have complete set of the drunk face mugs by Enesco. I have tried to find a value. Can you tell me what they might be worth. They are in perfect condition.

    Thanks, Keith

      Hi Keith….how cool that you have a complete set! I am sorry, I do not know the value of the mugs – either singly or as a set…..you could watch ebay/etsy and if a set ever comes up you could note what it sells for, sorry I couldn’t be of more help.

        No problem. I did find a set of 6 last night. They had some damage and the price for the set was $67.50. Mine have no chips, just some crackling.

        Thank you for responding so quickly. Keith
