Thrifting and rummage sale finds

Torn between leaving this as a lamp (it DOES work) or making it into a big finial.

DRAT!  My ‘best find’ and the picture is blurry.  Double darn!  This, and a lot of new white pieces will be going to Camas.



These are tiny little cutie patootie crocks.  Might have to keep them for ME!  (for a while at least; until I get MORE and have enough to do a whole display of them.)


Espresso cup and ever so tiny creamer.



These will be painted white and glazed with RL tobacco glaze for an antiqued look.

Do you LOVE this pink/gray color combo?!?!? 

You know what??  I have NO IDEA what these things are for!!!  Do you?  I just buy them because the are cute;  because a lot of people seem to collect them.

The picture really doesn’t do this ‘pear’ creamer and sugar bowl justice.  Very simple, yet elegant.

Pretty little tea cups.  LOVE the bases.  Might fill them with assorted individually wrapped teas; or maybe some Easter grass and chocolate eggs!

I better get busy pricing this stuff and get it ready to stock our booths next week!

  1. Love your finds! I have a hard time deciding whether to keep the treasures I find or sell them!

    Your covered dish could be Indiana glass or Westmoreland or Fenton! Were there markings? Either way they are collectible!

  2. love those gold frames…or maybe they are mirrors…either way be sure to post an after picture…can’t wait to see them with their new finish!

  3. Hi AJ ! I’m loving the ‘blurried pictured box’ … Will that be going to Camas Antiques ? Hope you are feeling better and had a wonderful weekend ! Patti

  4. Hi Patti,
    Yes, it WILL be going to Camas. Tomorrow in fact. I AM finally feeling better. Even got outside to paint a dresser yesterday!


  5. Wow, you found some real thrift store treasures. I rarely have that kind of luck! I especially adore the little crocks…I am a crock fanatic! Thanks for sharing! 🙂 ~Maggie
