Thrift Share

Do your have a routine when you treasure seek? I do, when I shop at the GW Boutique (Goodwill) I always head for housewares, I always check for Pyrex, children's toys, after these areas I check out the rest of the store in no particular order. When I'm at an estate sale I always head to the bedrooms for linens, vintage clothes, and next I will continue to the basement where I think all the treasures are. I love to dig in boxes and inside cabinets.

I was extremely excited that my thrift share from last week was featured on the blog Cap Creations, stop over and join the Thrifty Party at Cap Creations. Double excitement my Staffordshire English ironstone dishes were also featured  on Southern Hospitality blog written by Rhonda. She hosts Thrifty Treasures, jump over and join her fabulous party.

While thrift shopping this week I found a few items...

Such fun bright colored stripped Shiny Brite ornaments.
I don't know how old these are, but I think they are FUN!

Curves, angles, and ridges along with the color
teal made me grab this pitcher. I have no ideas
who the manufacturer is or how old.  If you
know,  the origins of this piece I would
appreciate any  information you could give me.

I was also able to find some useful items at thrift store prices that I was going to purchase at one the chain store. 

What did you find this week while thrift shopping? I can't wait to see all of your treasures.

  1. Visiting from Her Library Adventures.

    Looks like we would hit the same places...you would be a great shopping buddy...then again maybe not! lol

    Great finds, love the ornaments :o)

  2. Love that pitcher! The color is fantastic, I can never resist anything in that color.

  3. Love the pitcher and I am always a sucker for Vintage ornaments. I always go first to the linens and fabric, then housewares... Finishing up in books. Funny, isn't it?

  4. No thrifting this week, but I sure enjoyed yours!

  5. Its a great piece and color! More than likely it was made by a company called USA Pottery. USA pottery was highly produced in the 30's and 40's, this piece is probably from the 40's. J would have stood for the Artist and 30 the piece number. Hope that helps. I have some great vases from my grandmother.

  6. Those Shiny Brites rock! Love 'em.

    I know nothing about the pitcher, but the colour & shape are both very appealing.

  7. Those are both great finds! Love the colors.

    I always head for the kitchen. I usually skip the front room until the end, because that tends to be where they put the stuff that's out of my price range, anyway! I also love the bedrooms, basements and garages!

  8. This has been for sale for awhile on our local Kijiji:

    Looks very familiar.

  9. It didn't take long for all your followers to come on back. You have enough Christmas balls for several trees.

  10. I am head over heels IN LOVE with those ornaments! I have a good-sized collection of vintage Shiny Brites but I've never seen that design before and they are fabulous! Love the bright bold colors!
