Thrifty Thursday Finds

Good Day Everyone! Today I wanted to share my finds from my weekend yard sale adventures.  I ran across several interesting rummage sales, but only found a few items that I actually purchased. Considering the time and money involved I think I did pretty good!


I haven't researched these yet, but I will soon! Then I will decide where to list them!  eBay or Etsy? These are items that bring back fond childhood memories, and I'm sure they will be a pleasant reminder to others of you as well.
  • The red and white pail looks like a diaper pail according to the label...ummm, but we still have to find out for sure. Even though I collect the vintage red and white enamel ware I really don't know much about it.  I have a pail like this already and am willing to sell this one.
  • The framed print I found to be relevant to what I most like to sell and that is vintage clothing, although, it is hard to find dresses from the same era that this picture depicts.  I'm not sure if I will keep this one or not. We will see!
  • The aluminum cup reminds me of my dad.  He used to have a couple ( he may still have them ). He would have my mom mix up what he called Pepsi Doodles! It was a combination of Pepsi and vanilla ice cream.  They were a delicious family favorite for years.
  • The floral sugar bowl is a pattern my mom had as a complete dinner set with plates and all. I'll have to talk to her and see if she can tell me more about this pattern.  
  • The Petunia Pig glass is from 1973.  She is one of the coolest Pigs I know, sorry Miss Piggy.  It is a classic collector series from Pepsi.
  • I have my schedule blocked out for a lot of research in the week ahead..  If you see this post and know anything about these pieces please feel free to leave me a comment and let me know what you know, it will be greatly appreciated!
While you are here how about taking the time and meeting some lovely bloggers and Tweeters!
