Thrifted Treasures From This Weekend!

Here are the rest of the goodies from various yard sales this past weekend. I didn't have much time to shop, but managed to cram a few sales in on Saturday :) In the first pic, I found a set of old canisters that will be perfect in our kitchen. They are in need of a good cleaning, the lids are a bit hard to get off, but will have the hubby go to work on them. The set was $3.00.

I found a bunch of pieces of vintage satiny gold pleated fabric edging. I have no idea what I will do with them yet, but brought them home anyway. They were 25 cents for the bag. Below is a tattered old quilted potholder - I love the sweet fabrics they used to make it! 10 cents for the potholder.

I love this old shelf edging stuff, this is an old roll of Con-Tact Pleated Trim, in an aqua speckled design, originally priced at 7 feet for 49 cents. I got the roll for 25 cents.

I was "tickled pink" to find this large mixing bowl, it is gorgeous and I love the pastel colors used on it. It has a raised design of flowers and leaves on the pink background. It is in need of a deep cleaning, it has grungy junk stuck in the little ridges of the bowl rim. (Another cleaning job for the hubby...hee hee :) The bowl was $1.50.

This was so cool to find!!! A vintage 45 record holder, it is called a "45 Junior", the enamel paint on it is in great condition. I am not going to use it to hold records, but maybe a letter holder or something like that. This treasure was only $1.00!

One of the many things I love to collect is old advertising and packages, I couldn't believe when I found these at the first yard sale. A package of "Pulvex Dog Flea Soap", and a tiny box called "Save On Stockings", you are supposed to rub it on hosiery to prevent holes. Neither of these products have ever been opened! 10 cents for each of them.

Great finds! (I have the same canisters with the nasturtiums on them. I seem to have amassed a small nasturtium collection; along with ther canisters, I have matching juice glasses and a pitcher, a sifter and a lovely tea towel. Plus they are one of my favorite flowers and so easy to grow from seed in the garden.)
