That's two*clink* two thrift find posts in one week. Maybe the junk gods are going to smile down on me again soon. It's been a long winter! I chose not to go to the Estate Sale yesterday because I knew it would be packed and I only had d certain a mount of thrifting money set aside. Besides, I never know what I missed and I am happy with what I found.
As it turned out, when I got to the sale, I actually knew the lady having the sale. I see her at all the thrifts and she has sales quite often. She owned a shop at one time, she sells on ebay and has these occassional sales from time to time. (I suppose the word occasional explained that...) Anywho - I had told her about Etsy and she told me today that she was loving it, so I was glad to hear that. She had a lot of neat things, but her prices were a bit higher than I like to pay. Not that they weren't worth what she had priced - it's just that I have this damn cheap gene and I won't pay much for junk.
First the junk I get to keep. And, it's not junk - it's good stuff!. A sweet vintage aqua pottery pup, a nice matte white vase and a small flower frog. The pottery is perfect for the pottery collection and the flower frog fits right in with my collection of frogs.
A vintage cedar cigar box - DYNAMITE. I like to keep my crafty stuff in cigar boxes - I love the unique ones like this. What shall I keep in it?
I was on my third and final walk through when I spotted this giant handmade key on the door frame. It was only $1.00, so I snagged it. Nest to it was set of metal keys on a ring that I thought was $2.00, so I scooped them up too. The Bean informed me they were $20.00! Yikes! Quite a difference in prices.
Now for the find of the day! Like I said, this lady knows her stuff and sells in a lot of different venues. So, for me to find something worthy or reselling at a decent money really surprised me.
OLD stone fruit. Really old stone fruit. Not that made in Mexico stuff.
A beautiful apple.
Two overly ripened bananas.
A juicy ripe peach.
A sweet nectarine.
An ready-to-eat apricot.
And a fig.
I love old stone fruit, but I will be listing these this weekend to sell. They deserve to go to a good home that will treasure them. They are really great.
So, did you find anything this week? You did? Spill it!
*You remember those old Certs commercials, right?
