Thrift scores and a day on the town

This Caboodle is one of those 1980's childhood nostalgia items that came home with me despite having no idea what I was going to do with it. It might replace the train case I'm currently using to hold makeup. I actually still have my childhood one (it's light pink and purple) but I couldn't resist this black & white one with hot pink interior.
Continuing the trend of finding my entire American Sweetheart depression glass collection via thrift stores, I got these sherbets with metal holders for $1.99 a piece. To my knowledge, these are the only clear pieces in the American Sweetheart pattern, though MacBeth Evans did produce other patterns and colors with these same metal holders. I wanted to show one out of the holder and flipped so you can see how the glass was actually made. 
Since my husband and I were a bit disappointed with our big trip out this last Wednesday, we took the opportunity yesterday to go in a different direction and go to some other out-of-the-way antique stores. I bought this empty Shiny Brite box for two dollars to hold some of my smaller, loose ornaments. I didn't photograph it well, but I love the detail of Uncle Sam shaking Santa's hand.

Truthfully, I paid a small fortune for both of these pieces, but as my husband said to me in the antique store, I'm getting to the point in my collection where pieces I want, but don't have already, are becoming harder and harder to find, and they are probably going to be fairly expensive when I do.

I got the turquoise 2 quart baker (my first piece of turquoise bakeware!) for 30 dollars and felt rather bad for being willing to pay so much. Curiosity got the better of me, so when I got home I checked ebay for what they were going for, and pretty much immediately changed my outlook. Now I feel like it was practically a steal. (Well, maybe not a steal, but a good deal, nonetheless :-)

The 2 1/2 quart Snowflake Blue casserole was the first time I'd seen this piece in the wild, so I went for it. Merry Christmas to me! I'm getting pretty close to a complete collection of this pattern - even the matching Corelle. I love it!

I also have a couple of items still soaking in a nice, warm bath that I'm saving for another post!


I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to get out and hunt for this stuff. Every trip my husband and I take together is a memory I won't soon forget. I frequently complain on this blog about prices, prices, prices, but in truth, I still love collecting Pyrex. It's been a really fun hobby. Thrift shopping and antiquing are something my husband and I really love to do together. And though we are looking for different types of items, so many times he's spotted something for me that he knows I like, and I just enjoy that so much - seeing him with something in his hands he knows I'm looking for. And he's actually pretty darn good at it, too!

I'm grateful that we have had the health to get out and go places together. And that we've had the disposable income to set aside purely for enjoyment. That is a real blessing and a true gift.

I sincerely wish everyone a very *Wonderful Christmas* Happy Hanukkah* Happy Holidays*, and a much blessed and prosperous *New Year*!

Happy Thrifting!

Butterfly Blue

My husband and I headed out yesterday to an antiques district we generally only go to a few times a year.

When we both began the prowl for vintage we used to find tons of treasures - more than we could  afford! But these days, there's more stores/booths than ever, but just not what we are looking for, and hardly anything actually vintage! So much decor, TJ Maxx-style home furnishings, and repainted furniture. I am no longer a fan of chalk paint/milk paint or any other distressed-look style. I've just seen far too much of it in the last couple of years.

So hubs and I left almost empty handed. In fact, we spent more on lunch at Cracker Barrel than we did shopping, and that's counting both of us combined.

I love the things I did get though!
This is a small stack of scratch-and-dent Homer Laughlin pieces. The rippled edges are Riviera and the small round plate is Carnival. They were a dollar a piece, and I just couldn't pass them up at that price, despite small chips and glaze skips. Riviera and Carnival are my two favorite lines in Homer Laughlin to collect. It's much more rare for me to pick up a new piece of either than it is to find a tempting piece of Fiesta, so I basically collect it all. My dream is to buy either a geniune vintage medical cabinet stand to display my pieces in or to get the one they currently sell at Ikea in jadeite green.
And here's some Butterfly Gold I know for a fact that my mom doesn't have. And I'm not giving these to her because they are just too weird and cool.

According to pyrexlove and corellecorner, these were a gift item in 1977, commemorating Corning's first patent. Corelle corner references original packaging, but sadly, I can't find any pictures of what that might look like.

My husband thought they were the Blue Cornflower Corningware pattern when I showed these to him. I wouldn't have known what they were if I hadn't seen them several years ago via the flickr group. These are definitely my favorite Butterfly Gold items!

Hope you are having great luck and finding most excellent treasures!

Happy Holidays everyone!

Thrift Scores

Seems to be a running theme here that I've been absent for a couple of weeks. This time it's been because of an awful flu my husband caught first, then of course I caught it. Still not over it after a week & a half, we both just wanted to get out of the house for a little while yesterday.

So we went thrifting & popped into a couple of our favorite nearby antique stores. Here's my loot:

I cannot even say how much I love these ornaments. They were an antique store splurge, but I had to have them. This was the first time I've found a box of Shiny Brites for less than 25 dollars a box, and half of them are my favorite - indents! So I went for it.

I also picked up a copy of a Southern-based antiques magazine called the Busy Bee Trader, which also happened to have this fantastic article on the history of Shiny Brites. Found out something I never knew - that Corning produced these ornaments. Yet another Corning product I collect and never knew it!
These Friendship casseroles were together like they were a pair, and no sign of the other pieces that actually did come with originally. I had one already, with the opal version of the lid, so now I've got one of each and a spare. I just can't pass up Friendship if it's at all reasonably priced. Last time I saw a piece of Friendship in the wild, it was a 403 mixing bowl for 30 dollars. Ouch!

And here's my two thrift finds:
Couldn't get a good picture of this baby pink Rubbermaid silverware tray. I have the exact same one in turquoise already, but it was probably made a bit more recently than this one. The pink has an older, cursive script on the Rubbermaid logo, but my turquoise one has the current logo, a block script inside an oval shape.

And finally, this piece of Markley descoware has been put through the ringer, but I had to buy it anyway. I love the pattern! My husband spotted it for me. I think his hunting instincts come out when we go thrifting and antiquing. It's both sweet and maddening at the same time, because he's always racing ahead to try to find the good stuff, but he's calling me over while I'm still looking somewhere he's already moved on from. I lag behind because I'm looking for possibly buried treasure!

Hope this has been a good week for you!

Happy Treasure Hunting!

Fire King Stripes set complete!

Picked up the largest pink bowl today at a local antique store for $14.99 and it completed my set!

It's a shade lighter than the grease jar and shakers, so if I get the chance to, I really wouldn't mind picking up another darker one and relegating this lighter pink to an everyday user bowl. Typically in my area Fire King bowls are more expensive than Pyrex, and seem to be more fragile, so they're mostly display-only pieces in my collection - though I do use some jadeite and turquoise blue pieces from time to time.

There is also a batter bowl that I'd like to have. The band is red, so it doesn't exactly fit this pink/blue/yellow color scheme, I still think it would be a nice compliment to them.

And I also found a really cool vintage item that even though I was with my husband when we bought it I asked him to wrap it up and give it to me for Christmas. I'm excited to share it after Christmas!

How's everyone coming on the Christmas decorating? We put up our tree last night. I'm still mussing and fussing with ornaments and decorations. I'll get it together at some point, lol!

Hope you found nice surprises this weekend!

Happy Thrifting!

Thrift and antique store roundup

Got out thrifting yesterday. Hit up an antique store and several thrifts. Didn't find a lot, but I did add a few Christmas items and this sweet, beat-up vintage ivory Fiesta mixing bowl to my collection of once abused-but-now-loved by me mixers.

Hard to see in the pic, but it's got lots of silver metal marks inside and out (which I'll remove later with Bar Keeper's Friend), and a large chip on the side. It's a #5 with the rings on the inside bottom, which means it was produced before the design was changed (and the rings removed) sometime in 1938. It was 2.99 at GW, and I guarantee the only reason it was out on the shelf is because the word "Fiesta" and the size number were almost entirely illegible.

But I love these bowls no matter what shape they are in. I've got an equally beat-up yellow #5 I paid a pittance for and an almost perfect red #5 I paid a fortune for, and I still can say I love them just the same.

Despite being decorated to the nines in Christmas, the antique store I walked though really didn't have many ornaments for sale at all. And they were all solid colors. No beautiful indents or Shiny Brites in sight - at any price!

I picked up this box of ornaments mostly for the sweet ones with hearts on them and bought another small bag just for the two pink West German ornaments. The angel hair beside them is a totally new one on me. These packages haven't been opened, but they'd split open over time and had been overwrapped.

The angel hair is blue (hard to tell in the pic) and it's actually spun glass. From what I was reading, I believe it's Fiberglass. Pretty as it is, it's also an irritant. The package itself warns that if "mild itching occurs to wash hands in cold water". Oh boy!

(BTW, if you are hunting Angel Hair (of the non-irritating variety) for your decor, they still sell it at Hobby Lobby, I discovered when I was researching last night. They also carry replacement bulbs for ceramic Christmas trees - but in my local store they are in with the Doll House supplies - which I think is an odd location for them. Just wanted to pass this info along! :-)

And finally - More Bubble Lites! These were just two dollars a box. There were five, plus two boxes of replacements. Groovy! I'm totally set for Bubble Lites this year, for sure. The packages themselves were not dated, but the replacements were - 1989. I'm semi-surprised these are as relatively recent as that.

I don't know how to date my other boxes of Bubble Lights (notice the spelling change on the box?) that I also guesstimate to be dated sometime in the 1970-80's.

And they are obviously much smaller than the new ones. Are these smaller ones the same size as the actual originals? I've never really seen original Bubble Lites to compare them to.

I still haven't gotten out my Christmas decorations yet, but I know it's going to happen quite soon. Can't wait to see what these Bubble Lites look like on my new/old white Christmas tree!

Hope you're out finding thrifty treats and treasures!

Happy Thrifting!

Oops I did it again?

I went out just once this week to the thrift and a nearby antique store and what did I find but two more irresistibly pink Pyrex refrigerator dishes? How crazy is that, that I find pink refrigerator dishes on back-to-back trips at a time when I'm barely leaving the house to go antique shop or thrift, when I'd been on the hunt for at least a couple of years before I finally just broke down and bought my very first pink fridgies online (One of the rare times I've bought Pyrex online at all!)

I'm not complaining though. That's for sure. I love pink Pyrex :-)

Other than that, not much to report. I bought a two dollar bag of newer Christmas ornaments just for the sake of rescuing the two old ones that were mixed in. I'm getting the fever to decorate for Christmas already and I'm not sure I can hold out much longer.

I bought several strands of the newer repro bubble lights in a yard sale over the summer (that I never got around to blogging) and I'm dying to see whether I want to use them on the tree versus the 3 boxes of the smaller, original style bubble lights I lucked into at GW last year or so. I've never had bubble lights before - never even seen them on a tree, really. So I'm eager as a kid to find out!

Hope you're finding nifty treats and thrifty treasures!

Happy Thrifting!

Surprise finds

I really haven't been out since my last post. Drs appointments and obligations have kept me (mostly) out of the thrift and antique stores for a few weeks now. I've hit the Goodwill when running errands put me in sight of one, but I've left empty handed (except the hubs who scored a few vinyl records).

Even today, I had an obligation that kept me from attempting to yard sale, so I almost just stayed home altogether, but my husband actually told me he thought I might crack up if I didn't get out today. So of all things I chose to do, I decided to go to my hometown antique store (that almost never has anything). Figured we'd walk through it in about 5 minutes flat, then we'd splurge on some junk food lunch - another indulgence I've been denying myself quite a bit lately - then head back home.

But that didn't happen. In fact, I found one of my vintage holy grail items - a McKee dots dish!
(Red dots on custard, and I believe is it the smallest of a 3 piece round canister set)

It was the first thing I found, and I was positively over the moon about it! I've coveted McKee dots online and in collector's books for several years now, but only just this summer even saw a single piece in person. (Alas, it was a lidless red dot refrigerator dish for 65 dollars. And I just couldn't do it. Had it had a lid I might just have.)

I would have left happy with just this one find, but in another booth I found 3 pink refrigerator dishes for 15 dollars - with lids!  AND the smallest Snowflake Blue casserole dish that completes my 470 set!

A family reunited!
Had to take this picture of them all together :-)

The medium size pink fridgie has seen better days. I don't think its been dishwashed, but it looks like someone got after it with a brillo pad. It sad to see a damaged finish on a color like this that is in such a high demand these days, but it's also easy to forget how many good cleaning products we have now that just didn't exist in the prime days of pink Pyrex. The little guys probably were too small to be used as baking dishes, so they've made it though the decades with very little damage.

I've got to admit, I hoard pink Pyrex. This is makes 2 and a half fridgie sets for me, and I'll probably still keep buying them if I find more I can afford. I hope I'm not bad!

And speaking of vintage holy grails, what are yours? I think I've got so many Pyrex grails that they are a category unto themselves, but my absolute top two are more McKee dots (every color I can get!) and more pieces to go with my grandmother's Hull wheat canister. I'm ever and always looking for these - in the wild. Maybe someday I'll ebay them, but I'm a half-the-fun is the hunt kind of girl!

My grandmother's Hull wheat canister. I believe this originally belonged to her mother.

What are your vintage holy grails you keep an eye out for?

Hope you're enjoying this weekend and finding fabulous treasures!

Happy Thrifting!

Pink Scroll for the win

For almost the entire 4 years I've been collecting Pyrex this dish has clocked in as my single most expensive piece. I bought it very early on in collecting and haven't seen another one for sale since.

But just in the last 3 months, I gave in and spent more money than I ever had before for two different pieces - a Friendship lasagna pan and the smallest Balloons bowl (the 441) from the chip & dip set.

But apparently Pink Scroll couldn't stand to be bested - so here she is again - a duplicate and once again my most expensive piece.

And at the same time, I bought the flamingo pink creamer & sugar I was missing from my dinnerware collection. It's really beginning to narrow down what I'm still looking for. Mostly it's been lime that has eluded me.

And finally, it's half a party - a Pineapple Party, that is. I'm really pleased I got a photo that decently captures the fade effect on it. It's bad how almost exactly the same color this piece is to the smallest Daisy bowl. Comparing the two, it just makes the Pineapple bowl look like its got the beginnings of dishwasher damage or something.

But it's perfectly shiny, so I'm sure that's what I have. Wish they'd had the big bowl and bracket!

I couldn't believe I'd found 3 really cool things I needed at once like that!

Hope your weekend was filled with fun and treasures!

Happy Thrifting!

Yard sale & thrift finds

My favorite find in a long time!

I had no idea these canisters came in pink! Hubba Hubba! I held my breath when I saw them, worried they'd be expensive. But they were 5 bucks - same price as I paid for my turquoise set a while back. I've been lucky finding these sets so reasonably priced. Love 'em!

I bought all this from a lady who told me her cabinets were full of this pattern and she was ready to let it go. I asked her how much she wanted for all of it and she said 25 dollars. And I said "Sold!" I'll split these with my mom. I didn't mean to collect this pattern for myself at all, but I wouldn't be surprised if I had about as much as she does by now! Ooops :-) I was amazed that every single piece had a lid, and other than some dust and grime that washed away, they're all in great condition, just a single buggered up lid.

And my very first Gurley candles! These were 50 cents each at the thrift. And just in time for Halloween!

I found lots more goodies yard sale-ing, thrifting, and antique store shopping, lately - I've just been really slack in posting them. And of course I'm hoping to find more this weekend!

Hope you're finding nifty treats and treasures!

Happy Thrifting!

Anniversary goodies

The hubby and I celebrated our 9th Anniversary yesterday. We took a much-anticipated trip to an antique district a bit too far away to be in our regular rotation.

I can't even write about the Pyrex I saw without starting to type out the same sentiment again and again: Prices are going up, up, up, and I just can't afford it. In my area, it's becoming commonplace that higher-demand colors/patterns of Pyrex are more expensive than jadeite and depression glass. It's unreal.

I've wanted the tulip casserole since I began collecting, but I just wouldn't buy it online. In the end, I didn't really save any money buying it in the wild, but I did get to hold it in my hands and see its condition before I bought it. I still love it though :-)

The turquoise dinnerware platter had also eluded me until now. I have the grey and pink and just need the lime to have one of each of the platters I'm collecting. And the pink gooseberry bowl completed my second set of Cinderellas. I have one really minty set on display and another in the cabinet to use. Best of both worlds.

My Fire King and Fiesta finds. The tulips grease jar is pretty faded, but cost me less than 10 dollars, so it was definitely coming home with me. The platter underneath it is Fire King Vitrock and goes with my other pastel Vitrock pieces.

The heart bowls are Fiesta Lapis and Poppy, in the smaller size that is a small/independent retailer exclusive. I missed getting one the last trip we took, so hubby bought me two. I was touched, he went right for the color I was looking for. He really does pay attention to all my dish craziness. Poor guy! He is so sweet <3 br="">
I was looking for more vintage clocks for above my Pyrex display. These are whooped up, but perfect for what I want. And they didn't set me back much, which is always nice.

And I've apparently developed a taste for kitchy vintage refrigerator magnets. I bought a couple of bags of cute ones that have already made their way onto my fridge, but here's some of highlights.

Anthropomorphic fruit anyone?

And the dieter's magnets are just too fantastically cruel to be taken seriously.  No eating. That's always good advice.
Overall, I had a wonderful trip and a great day with my husband! Good stuff!

Hope you're out having fun this weekend!

Happy Thrifting!

A few finds and some seasonal treasures

I had to pick up this years Halloween Pyrex at the local Target. They only had 4 of each when I went so I'm glad I got a chance to pick these up. If they have them at the outlet I may pick up some spares.

 All the different designs from the last 3 years.

Sadly, I missed out on the Christmas and Spring designs because they didn't come to any stores in my area. Except this Spring I went to the Corningware outlet store a few hours away and they said they'd received hundreds of them and they clearanced them out for a dollar apiece! I was so disappointed! Why couldn't they have just sold them at Target like the Halloween pieces? Ugh.

 I wasn't supposed to be antique store shopping, but the hubs and I stopped at a store we only go to once in a while. And of course we found too much stuff and spent money intended for our anniversary trip. Figures, right?

I hemmed and hawed about buying this red bowl, fearing it was another primary red that I really didn't need to buy. Decided to get it anyway and use it for my Friendship set no matter what.
Once I got home with it, I believe it really is the Friendship bowl I was missing. It matches my other red Friendship pieces perfectly. I now have a complete 3 bowl set. It would be just the cat's pajamas if I could find the orange 404 to officially complete the set. 
And finally, I had to buy these ornaments. Vintage ornaments are always so wildly overpriced in my area. So finding this whole bag for 5 dollars was a must-purchase.

The kissing Clauses are my favorites. So cute!

That's my finds for now. I've got my fingers crossed we'll have a fabulous anniversary trip with lots of cool swag here in just a few days. I'm so excited! I so look forward to these fairly rare forays outside our usual stomping grounds. :-)

Hope you're finding fantastic treats and treasures!

Happy Thrifting!

Depression Glass thrift store finds

Not much new to report on the thrifting front. I've been staying away from antique stores, saving up my nickels and dimes for an anniversary shopping trip if all goes well we'll take about 3 weeks from now.

I did however find these two pieces of Depression glass, two different thrifts on two different days, and they both came home with me.
This sweet little pink creamer is Hazel Atlas Florentine #1 - an entertwining Poppy pattern hard for me to photograph. Apparently this is the smooth top version. But there is a ruffled top version that looks like the same ruffles on the Ripple (Crinoline) dinnerware also made by Hazel Atlas.

Can you see the Ballerina, or Dancing Girl? I was trying to get a picture of this detail - which is practically impossible with the lighting in my house and my out of date camera. I haven't measured the plate but I'm sure it's in the range of either a small dinner plate or luncheon sized. This pattern is Cameo by Hocking Glass (which became Anchor Hocking a few years after production of this pattern ceased.)

I only rarely come across Depression Glass at the thrifts, but what I have found I really do like. My entire collection, save one piece, has all come from thrift stores or auctions for super-thrifty prices. But despite not having much experience with Depression Glass, I really enjoy reading the several different books I have and trying to learn to recognize the patterns on site. I correctly identified these pieces from memory - I was proud of myself :-)

Finally, a Corning Ware handle for 99 cents. I find these every once in a while, but never in the original package, so I thought that was neat.

I also bought a vintage metal stool that I hope to repaint soon. A future project I hope to document here!

Hope your thrifting/junkin/antiquing has been more productive than mine :-)

Happy Thrifting!

Thrift and antique store roundup

These are my goodies from the last couple of weeks. A few of these were yard sale finds. The canister on the left was a dollar and the Pyrex mug was 10 whole cents. Yay for yard sale prices!

The pie plate, fridgie and Fire King teacup were also yard sale finds, but creeping into thrift and antique store prices. I didn't have a Desert Dawn pie plate, so I had to buy him for 3 dollars. The lidless Butterprint fridgie was also 3 dollars (I pretty much have a no Butterprint left beyond policy :-). The FK teacup and Butterfly Gold gravy boat underplate were a dollar each as well.

I don't know about you, but most yard sales I stop at these days seem more like perpetual yardsales/flea markets. Most everything I show interest in -vintage or not- is what I'd consider retail prices. Strangely, it's in times like this when I seem to get better deals in a nicely-staged air-conditioned antique store booths than I do in someone's yard, standing there cranky and overheated with the sun constantly threatened to punish my pasty white flesh for daring to walk around outside for more than twenty minutes.

And finally, my antique store finds. The lovely pink Daisy casserole in the center, with two Fire King tulip teacups. Maybe not a giveaway price at 16 dollars for all, but I was happy. I'd broken my only tulip teacup early in the morning one day (why I was moving around glassware pre-coffee I really don't know. But I do know I'm not going to do that anymore.) The lady at the antique store gave me the tulips for a dollar and knocked 5 bucks off the asking price of the pink daisy and then didn't even charge me sales tax. Oh and did I mention I didn't have to stand around in the sun the whole time I was shopping? And in fact, I found the air-conditioning perfectly lovely?

Lol :-)

And this badass clock was also an antique store purchase, just not the same place. It was one of the few times I've ever inquired about something behind the counter that didn't look for sale. Grimy and dusty as it was I could see the beautiful turquoise potential shining out, crying for me to give it a good home.

Or something like that. :-)

Turns out the lady had just bought it that morning, didn't have it cleaned up, priced or even knew if it worked. She priced it for me, as is, for 6.50, which I was perfectly okay with. I took it home, cleaned it up and hung it up above a Pyrex display, and still as of this writing don't even know if it works, cause I haven't even tried it!

I honestly don't care if it works, really. I just have dreams of finding really cool vintage clocks like this in the same colors I have in my Pyrex display and displaying them that way. Maybe once I have a filled-out looking display I might try learning how to repair or rework the ones that don't work. Or I may just enjoy them as-is.

That's all for now. Hope you're finding thrifty treats and treasures!

Happy Thrifting!

Yard sale and Fire King finds

The next couple of pics are all technically yard sale finds, but they came from a lovely lady who used to own a semi-local antique store. So, much nicer stuff than I tend to find in yard sales. Her store used to be one of my favorites to visit, though I didn't go as often as I might have liked. It was a nice surprise to chat with her again, and to pick up these really neat little items. I paid 8 dollars for everything.

How cool are these price tags?!? I regret to say she had a few more of them that I didn't buy! Foolish me. But at that point, I had grabbed up so many little things and was trying to keep it straight how much I was spending, that I had enlisted my husband to be my hold-everything-while-I-shop boy. Wish now that I'd bought them all, but they must have been meant for someone else's happiness as well :-)
I have to go jumbo-size on this picture because of the details. These woven labels are just the cutest ever. And do they get any better than Anita and Gertrude?! Also, the Made with love for THE BOSS is hilarious. Notice the #1's in the background. Oh so tongue in check. And that owl there is a sewing kit. So sweet. I think it might have had a little pair of scissors in it that aren't there any more, but the rest seems to be intact.

And my final loot from her were these bags of refrigerator magnets. I realized the minute I saw them how much they reminded me of my maternal grandmother's refrigerator, so I had to snap them up.

There's a couple more just waiting for me remember to buy a fresh tube of superglue to reglue the magnets.

And these Fire King finds were all thrift store scores for pretty cheap. I'm always amazed when I find anything in Goodwill anymore that isn't chipped or broken. I've not worked up the nerve to just ask them outright if they're sending all the good stuff to their online store, but I sure have gotten that impression. These Fire King Fleurette teacups were 49 cents, and the tray was 99.
Had to take a picture of my lone Fleurette teacup from the regular dinnerware set. It's definitely bigger than the snack cup, and it lacks the foot on the smaller-sized snack cup.
And finally, I think this is my personal favorite Fire King mug I've ever found. I looked up Lady B's larger sizes just to see if I could find any trace of where this store might have been located, but no luck. I'm guessing this decoration was not at all Anchor Hocking's, but rather, a blank that was sold in bulk to a decorating firm that did advertising decals on glassware. But whatever the case, I superloves it.

That's all for now. Hope your weekend was filled with treasures!

Happy Thrifting!
