Hey thrifters! How was your week in thrifting? As you can see from the above photo, mine was pretty good! All your Pyrex well wishes & good Pyrex vibes paid off! They are all pieces that I have yet to add to my collection, too. I brought a lot home this week. I can't remember the last time this much has come home from the thrifts with me. Whatever you do, don't tweet, instagram, text, Facebook, call or anything else my BF. He must not know how much came home! We're moving soon & well... he doesn't want me buying so much!
First things first, I bought a condiment dog! I've wanted one of these, plus a pair of salt & pepper decorations in the same style (not the same pattern, though). Blue Willow isn't totally me, but there doesn't seem to be too many condiment dogs out there. This is made in Japan. Also pictured are some vintage cards & a full set of Regal kitten notes (for sale/trade).
I bought these anthropomorphic salt & pepper shakers because they were a buck!
I'm not really a lamp buyer. I remember getting yelled at once in a resale shop by my mother for wanting to buy a vintage lamp. "You aren't plugging an old ratty chord into my plug! It's a fire hazard!" Oh okay. That's when I was 13 years ago. That was the same store that got me obsessed with vintage cards. They sold them for a dime each. I have bought 3 lamps since. One was from the mid 1990s & one seems to be from the 70s or late 60s. Anyways, my newest lamp purchase is inspired by Van from Thrift Core. If it wasn't for her iconic lamp (view it here), I probably wouldn't have noticed this one. I know aside from the similarity in shape & that it's glazed (or something) there isn't much in common.. but yeah. I also for some reason ventured to an area of the store I never go to. Fate? This goes perfect on my small display case (full of Pyrex) next to my record player. I just need a shade. What colour would be perfect? I wouldn't know how to date a lamp. Any clue when it's from? I include a shot of bottom/plug. Annnnd.. maker? LOL.

My favourite Pyrex find of the week is the loaf pan. You don't see many loaf pans around here. I have one, which I got at Savers in New York for $4. This one is in pretty damn good condition!
Snowflake 444. Nice, yeah?
The fridgie needed a clean up, but is in very good condition otherwise, lid had a few fleas, but whatever! Surprised it lasted a day at the thrifts. & this 474 Autumn Harvest completes my 470's Autumn Harvest set! This is a set I use all the time & for Thanksgiving. There was a lot of the Ponderosa mugs in the thrift store, but I only bought 4. 4 is a perfect set for me & I have for some reason wanted some.
Well, that's it for me this week! Lots going on around here (none thrift wise). Thank you everyone for linking up last week & hope to see you again this week. Thrift on!
