Maybe "thrifting on a budget" is a bit redundant but I need to keep reminding myself of this fact. Imagine you're holding something in your hand that you may never, ever have the opportunity to purchase again and there is a crush of buyers hovering all around you... what to do??? Buy it now and justify it later? Walk away and always think of it as the one that got away? I have no answer to this one except that I'm trying to thrift on a budget.
My favorite find today is this Pyrex, yellow Polka Dot bowl. Summer sunshine on a bowl!
And how could I resist more vintage Christmas ornaments with these awesome old tree toppers?
Also found a few old Smalls. I love old silk and velvet flowers.
Found a couple of old soda bottles from a man who had dug these out of a drained lake bed. The are old and dirty but I thought the Dad's Rootbeer bottle would be great for a Father's Day display and the KIST bottle could be used for a Valentine's display.
Vintage Poppin' Fresh salt and pepper shakers.
This is a heavy, metal flower frog in the shape of a turtle.
And today's mystery find is a handful of curved 24" wooden rulers. I think they were used in dress making to measure from the waist through the curve of the hips. I just couldn't resist a handful of wooden curved rulers.
So I stayed on budget and had a grand day of treasure hunting.
Hope everyone had a great day of thrifting. I'll be putting some of these items in my Stuff to Treasure store so please check it out.
