February 21, 2013Let’s Check Out What’s For Sale At The Local Thrifts!
By Sara In AZ
I try to hit up the local thrifts at least once a week around these parts, as you just never know what you are going to find on any given day. There are like a zillion Goodwill stores around my house (seriously, like 5) so it is fun to try to hit up all of them and see what fun items pop up. Of course I cannot bring every item home with me, so I brought my camera around with me last week so y’all could go shopping too and check out what the local thrifts have to offer.
First up, these adorable little glasses. I could not find a manufacturer stamp anywhere on them, but I thought 99 cents each was a pretty good price.
This is a cute vintage Lefton ‘Victorian Lady’ figurine, the price tag had already been removed by someone else to view the manufacturer stamp so I have no idea how much they were asking.
I saw this cute little graduation??? pig figurine for $1.99.
This is hilarious – and I have absolutely no idea what it is! Maybe a donkey??? As you can see he still had his original paper tag – he was also missing his price tag.
They had a funny ceramic ‘Made In Japan’ wall plaque clown for $4.99.
I thought this little ballerina was so cute – but sadly part of her skirt was broken off. She was $1.99.
Another Lefton figurine…..I guess someone had a collection? She was $5.99 and black kitty in the background doesn’t look to happy about that does he!
I thought this vintage picture was pretty cool, it was $20.
This little flower picture was also missing it’s price tag, but don’t some of the beads………………
………………..….look suspiciously like Enid Collins beads?????
I probably would have bought this Holt Howard Christmas Tray for $1.99, but it had a couple of chips.
I was pretty surprised this vintage Dutch Boy wall plaque made it through the thrift store process in one piece – sadly his mate was nowhere to be found. He was $1.49.
What a sweet little baby planter! This was $2.99.
This atomic looking tray is actually not vintage, it was from Target. I thought it was pretty cool looking anyway, it was $5.99.
Someone definitely had a collection of vintage souvenir plates! They were all $2.99 each.
They had a cute Miller Chalkware swan up for sale at $2.99.
Aren’t the little elves on these ‘House of Lloyd’ Christmas mugs adorable! These were 99 cents each, but as you can see we only could find N, O and E…..poor little L must have gotten broken.
Love the vintage drink shakers!
Lastly, this amazing vintage dining table set! The chairs were $4.99 each and………………….
……….this table was $34.99. That is a TOTAL bargain for an entire dining set if you ask me!
I could not really find any manufacturing marks anywhere on the table, this tag was on the bottom of one of the chairs. I’ve never heard of Gordon Furniture before, anyone out there know anything about their furniture???
How do my thrifts compare to other ones out there? Are y’all seeing the same kind of stuff???
