Thrift Finds

 I ♥ church rummage sales. These sales have a wonderful mix of items, the prices are reasonable, I never leave empty handed, and I am never disappointed.

I spotted the Pink Flamingo cake pan priced for only $2.00 and snatched it up.
The cake pan is my fifth piece of Pyres. Does this mean I am now a collector?

I was walking to the pay station when I spotted this cheerful plate 
and imagined many uses for it.  I was surprised to see that it was a Pyrex plate. 
I don't know if this is a new item or vintage piece. Either way I love it!

At a family run Estate sale I found a few things that I really, really liked.

This make-up suitcase measures 10 x 14 x 6. Has the owners initials embossed on the front, and came with five glass containers with elastic bands that hold them in place.

Hoping this wish bone pin will bring me good luck, and I think it's cute.

This Wagner Ware cast iron pan was only 25¢. This cast iron pan was loved  had no rust and was well seasoned.  I took it home gave it a good wash up and made hamburgers and onions in this pan. 

 I am linking up with, Her Library Adventures on Sunday, for:

  1. I love the pyrex plate. The floral edge is very cute. Five pieces...I'd say that makes yo a collector for sure:)

  2. This time next year it maybe 25 pieces lol love the plate.

  3. I agree with you about church sales. They are usually a great time. I've only been to a few that were duds.

    Yes, I'd say you are officially a Pyrex collector, now. :)

    I love the wishbone pin!

  4. Ah what great finds!! I LOVE pink Pyrex! And they say if you have three of anything it's a collection. ;)

  5. I have NEVER seen such a beautiful pyrex pan in my life! And I bet that plate is vintage too.

  6. Nice finds! Believe that pyrex plate is the "underplate" for the promo Friendship covered casserole. Not 100% sure, but I think likely.

  7. Such great finds! Love the Pyrex!

  8. I can't believe you found a Wagner skillet for only a quarter. What a deal!

  9. Oh my goodness! These are amazing finds! I am always on the lookout for red and pink pyrex. What a couple of great pieces!!

    the make up case is fantastic, too!
