Sales are winding down in our area, and I don’t seem to be finding much in the way of yard sales these days. And I think the dealers in the vintage stores where I frequently shop are having a hard time replenishing merchandise in their own booths. So the pickings were slim for me this week.
I did find this trio of Pyrex bowls in the crazy daisy pattern, though. Back when I first got married, I received a set of four bowls in this pattern as a wedding present. There was a larger mixing bowl included in that set and I wish this set I found wasn’t missing that size bowl. It was perfect for mixing cake or pancake batter.
But I’ll have to be satisfied with these three. I think they were a good deal at $15.00. The dealer just happened to be in the shop the day I was in, and she brought the price down from$22.00. Turns out she was the lady I bought all those glass snack sets from last week!
I found this this glass pitcher at a yard sale for $1.00 and it’ll be fine for serving a batch of ice tea or lemonade. The weather is still warm here, so something cool and refreshing is still well-received on a day when the temperatures are still in the 80’s. I just read in Dana’s blog that she and The Stone Rabbit like to drink a combination of iced tea and lemonade called an “Arnold Palmer.” I am definitely going to try that, using pink lemonade. Doesn’t that sound good?
Gotta bring out the silver polish for this baby! It is so tarnished that it will probably take several cleanings to get it to where I want it to be. A little elbow grease will be well worth the $3.00 I paid for it.
I found this French-looking basket while out on my adventure in Lancaster, Ohio. I had originally looked at a similar one in another shop, but it was quite expensive. This one only set me back $8.00, as opposed to almost $50.00 at the other shop. I’ve filled it with two dozen paper sunflowers that I found at a yard sale for $2.oo.
Make sure that you stop over at Rhoda’s site. I’m sure she and others are finding cool things to show us from their thrifting excursions.
