Thrifting Finds - Warning! Cuteness Overload!!

I started to take some pix of this week's thrift/yard sale haul, and just had to post these guys together - they are so durn cute!

My ever-accomodating hubby found this little old lambsy squeeze toy at one sale (so adorable I can't stand it....LOL) He was 25 cents (the lamb, not my hubby :)


And by golly at another sale we went to he found this little squeeze vintage bunny - can you believe it?! - the thrifting gods were with us today! This one was only 50 cents.


And what I feel is about the most adorable canister set I have ever seen!!! I went ga-ga over this set with darling little painted chirping birdies on them - at first I only thought it was the one canister, then when I picked it up it rattled and there were the rest of them neatly nested inside....love the little song notes above them! I am not sure if the knobs on top were original, or if someone added them to the lids. They appear to be bakelite, and look like they might be backgammon chips cut in half and drilled and attached on top. All of this birdie cuteness for a mere $1.00!!!!


Next I found these sweet little fellas - I think they are Pekingese dogs with their little red tongues hanging out, they are S & P's. I don't know what they are made of, some kind of composition material it seems. A dog-gone steal at 10 cents for the pair!



Yep, another super-tweet vintage china birdie with a little flower on her head. Geeeez, I just can't get enough of this stuff! Isn't she adorable? 25 cents - sold!

Now this little bugger has some issues, mainly a wing chipped off, but I could not leave him behind. If you look closely, he has a camera on his shoulder, so this in fact makes him a shutter-bug ! He was so silly I wanted him, and the lady told me I could have him for free :)

Lots more thrifty pix to come!! Have a great weekend everyone!

O! at last I find a lady with the same passion for thrift shops or op-shops as we call them here in Australia.

Your pieces are so lovely and what treasures to find that now belong to you, very Very cute that is for sure.

Now will you be upset if I tell you my last post is photos from the thrift shop I work at ((smiles)) that is right I work at an op-shop and love it so much.

I am going to have to go back now and take a long look at your posts to see what other gems you have found.

I hope to see you at my blog and will be back to see yours for sure.

Best wishes Lee-ann

I love your birdie canisters/ I've been having fun reading your archives. Lots of great thrifting treasures! My kinda gal!

Connie said...

You really have some treasures there. I think it is wonderful that your husband goes with you and finds such cute things...Hunting is much more fun when the both of you enjoy it.

Take care,
Connie

I love those squeezy toys! The lamb squeezy was in an op shop near me for $15!

Marla said...

Followed you over from My House is Cuter Than Yours, and I have to say - you're right up my alley. And then, I saw the birdy canister set, and wow - I'd sell my mother to have those. The finds, and the prices in your area! OMG! You have a new fan.

woof nanny said...

Your finds are incredible, but so are the prices. Ten cents? Onr dollar? How is that possible? That's unheard of here. The canisters about took my breath away.
