Friday Finds - A Thrifty Day

Friday finds, thrift stores, vintage finds, ironstone pitchers and platters, vintage books
On a recent Friday I made the rounds of thrift shops and hit a bonanza of smalls.

A stack of Syracuse platters - creamy white with a brown glazed border.

A small Roseville cream pitcher.

A lovely ironstone water pitcher - traces of pink around her sides.

No basin - but who cares?

The pitcher was filled with this mixed bunch of dusty, dirty silk blooms.

Someone evidently donated a boatload of them because every basket and vase and pitcher were crammed with silk flowers.

AND you had to take them with your purchase!

Lidded market basket.

Nice for displays and for shopping.

A pair of Christmas hatboxes.

Mary Jane's Farm double sided comforter.

Green and pink floral patterns.

Pink and white butterfly quilt.

The butterflies are made of candlewick knots.

Pieced by machine but quilted by hand.

Pair of giant brass candle sticks.

Then promptly found a similar pair slightly smaller.

Pair of serving bowls.

The left one is the Cameo pattern (Homer Laughlin).

The one on the right is not marked but goes well with the other.

I adore and will keep this pitcher.

It bears the scars of a long and useful life.

Plus it is pretty.

Two silver plate trophy bowls - only one engraved.

I did not know there was an award given for "Outstanding Adult".

Cute little bronze baby shoe.

A large gold embroidered tablecloth.

Only found four books but the reader and the When We Were Young are keepers.

A huge pile of baskets because at one place the more you bought the cheaper they were.


Another week.

Another thrifty haul.

Notice the hauls are getting smaller and smaller.

At some point I need to show photos of what I am downsizing in my house.

I do post some on Instagram.

Chucks fears he may be next.

See y'all!
