I don't know about you (actually, I do, since you're reading this I know we have at least some similar tendencies) but these weeks of no thrifing/flea-ing are really getting to me. Even though I have tons of stuff to list, endless mounds of stuff to organize, piles of Christmas stuff to sort through and put away, I am still anxious to scout out a thrift store or two.
So I did. Found a new (to me) thrift store on Monday. Mr. VJIMT was still on vacation, so we made a romantic day of it. I don't think he was too thrilled with the Goodwill store I dragged him in to, but we also went to a (sort of) junky antique store, so he was happy. Here's my pile (including the silver tray):
Got this cool varsity letter "G" at the antique store for a yard sale price. Will join my vintage metal initial letter collection.
Sweet little ironstone creamer with green transferware pattern. I'm pretty sure we have a matching big pitcher and basin from a yard sale in the basement.
I am still drooling over these pink icicle teardrop ornaments I found (oddly affordable) at the antique store. They are my favorite style and color. (Oh,and in case you were wondering, the boxes of Shiny Brites remain in the hallway.)
The rest of the stuff is already on Etsy -- like these 1950s beer steins made by the Pioneer Merchandise Company of Japan.
And this retro (1952) chalkware graduation cake topper.
And this lovely iridescent religious statue/planter.
