A family affair

This past weekend I went to visit my parents in lower Delaware. We always have such a great time there. It's so relaxing & quiet --- unlike Philly! The one thing that we ALL have in common is a love for thrifting/yard sales / flea markets etc. It's a pretty fun bonding experience!! It's also nice that we aren't all looking for the same things.  I look for Pyrex / vintage goodies & for the most part {with a few exceptions} they aren't interested in that. It's awesome to have a few extra sets of eyes :) My family and I went to 3 or 4 thrifts on Saturday. I found a cute milk glass mug that states the ever obvious "Bald is Beautiful," 2 Butterfly Gold II casseroles to match the bowls I have, a gold leaf pin & some little milk glass vases that I'm very drawn to lately. AND I spent less than $15 :)

McKee for me!

I've finally done it! After years of thrifting, I've finally found a McKee sailboat dish in the wild! The prices are usually high online {etsy / eBay} so I was thrilled to find this for $3! The only trouble I find now is that I want more! :D

Thrift finds - 10.2.13

After the antiquing experience I had last weekend I should probably stay out of the thrifts for a while.... but I caved. I am having a bit of a stressful week & I needed to take my mind off of work & actually do something fun on my lunch break.  I headed over to the closest goodwill.... I'm so glad I did! I found a cute little plaque for $3 that will be a fun little diy project for a random day. I love how it looks now but it's kind of banged up.  I definitely want to spray paint the words white but the background color is pretty up in the air. It'll come to me! No rush! 

I also found this awesome starburst Hazel Atlas sour cream glass for $1. The cashier asked me why I was buying just one glass.... Um, maybe because there's only one on the shelf? 😳

And finally, I found the two little babies in the front for $2 each. How crazy that they're the same colors as the Fiestaware I already own? I didn't even do it on purpose!!  This haul definitely brightened my week a little bit :)
