Thrift Score Monday: Happy Thanksgiving!

It was a busy (work-wise) and dreary (weather-wise) week, so I wasn't the thrifting and treasure-hunting tornado that I usually am. I still, of course, managed to find a few things. ;)  Here are my favorites:

I loved this delicate ceramic vase. It's not a find of the caliber of, say, finding Rookwood at Goodwill or anything, but I still thought it was elegant and lovely...and in perfect condition.

I was also psyched to find a set of eight Fire King gratin bowls. I always refer to this color as peach lustre, though I think it's technically called copper. [Must research further!]  In any case, they are in PRISTINE condition--clearly have never been used. I love them; they feel so cozy and wintery to me--perfect for chili or french onion soup.

I've had this Pyrex bowl listed in my shop for a while:

It's the Spring Blossom Green (aka Crazy Daisy) pattern from the 1970s.  On a thrift shop foray over the weekend, I found the larger and smaller (green on white) bowls that go with this set, giving me an almost-complete nested set!  I've pulled the listing from my Etsy shop and I'm going to photograph the bowls as a set and relist them. I love reuniting broken sets of vintage objects!

Another reuinited set of sorts was this grouping of roly poly glasses:

I had three of them from earlier in the year, and I happened upon five matching ones at another thrift store. So weird when that happens!  These are unique in that there are various types of houses (tee-pee, log cabin, igloo, tiki hut, etc.) etched into the bands. The etched design is only noticeable up close:

I don't know who made them or the significance of the houses. If anyone knows, please share!

A final favorite from this week was this milk glass compote:

This is the "lotus blossom" pattern from Indiana Glass. I love the shape of the bowl and the delicate stem. It's not a pattern that I've seen before in milk glass, so I was excited to find it.

Overall, still a pretty good haul for an "off" week, I thought. I hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Laura: You crack me up. Yep, pretty sure they've never been used. They are so glossy inside it's almost obnoxious! Sir: I love it too! I grew up with Spring Blossom/Crazy Daisy, so it makes me nostalgic.
