coming at ya from Ohio!
How was your second hand shopping this week?
I'm trying out the scheduled post thing this week for Thriftasaurus. It's actually Tuesday night & I'll be on my way to Ohio tomorrow (Wednesday) after work & will be without the internet until Monday! (I know, right?). Anyways, so hopefully this is up here Saturday... I have no way to tell until I get home...
I got out there once before I left for the week, overcrowded thrift stores since it's 10 days to Halloween, but it wasn't too bad. A very nice woman commented on both the bowl & the cookie jar, she actually talked me into buying the cookie jar as I was on the fence about it. It seems like it possibly has a manufacturing defect & has a surface scratch & had many surface scuffs that looked similar to Pyrex utensil marks. I was right about those - easy to get out! Also found a Hazel Atlas polka dot bowl. Just need one more to complete the set - the blue/turquoise colour one.

I also found this Lefton Bluebird creamer, chipped, but it was 99cents (ugh, I feel like Macklemore). I filed down some of the chips & he looks a little better. He's a bit crazed, too, but I couldn't let him get tossed & for a buck, he'd look great on a display shelf higher up where no one could tell he's chipped. His chips are in his beak.
That's it for me. Hopefully I have some Ohio finds to show. We decided to leave a day early & are going to end up making a couple thrift store stops & were going to go to antique malls on Thursday, however, not anymore. We'll see where the week takes us. Hopefully I can get some stuff in. We had plans to go to several malls, but they all seem scrapped, but things can always change.
Thrift on & on...
Thanks for checking out Thriftasaurus this week, hope to see you again soon!
