Thrift Finds

The weather in Wisconsin has been beautiful with temperatures in the mid to upper 70's all week and will continue until Tuesday.  Hope you're enjoying your October weather.

I stopped at a family run estate sale I love family run estate sales and found a few things.

In the kitchen, I found Pyrex ovenware and another red Pyrex bowl.
These two pieces were one dollar each.

I picked up this Madeline book up to read to my grandchildren.

When I got home, I found that this book was published in 1954.

 Colorful illustrations.

This book was 25¢.

I couldn't resist this handmade bridesmaid dress.

 I like the box pleats on the back of the jacket.

 What good is a bridesmaid dress without the head piece.

 This long black polyester dress caught me eye.

 Look at the keyhole on the back of this dress.

         Red polyester, oh my, or should I say oh why.
These dresses were priced at $1.00 a piece, I just couldn't resist.

Looking forward to see what everyone else found this week.

  1. Oh I just love the dresses! I know when they are at that price it's hard to resist.

  2. Those dresses are very cool for $1 each. I especially like the bridesmaid dress, sans the headpiece with bow. I can, however, easily picture someone wearing this.

    You are finding some great Pyrex pieces at at super prices.

    The vintage Madeline book is a treasure!

  3. what great prices The estate sales around here are overpriced
