Thrifting a Go-Go

Gorgeous day on Thursday so I went out after class and checked out what was what at a few thrift stores.

Didn't get this stack of awesomeness, but I sure wanted to. Anything in this color sends me into orbit. Why why why?

And gravy boats. I have a thing for gravy boats. Resisted on this one, but did buy a white Fire King boat. Gravy!

More dish love. How cute are these? Why don't I live in a house the size of a thrift store?

This place was crazy. Miles of crap.

Pup totally shook his head when he saw this radio I dragged home. But just look at the cool clock flipper! Oh my goodness. It's going in my laundry room to keep me company when I am ironing. Yick on the ironing!

I picked up some Fire King dishes, but don't tell anyone. So cute!

A good day and a good haul.

I can think of a couple of things that "send me into orbit"...and that color is one of those, too! I like it.

I agree with the Pups. I just can't appreciate a "flipper clock", anymore. It brings back 'Glow-in-the-Dark' posters and things of that nature...

I am so completely addicted to thrift stores... and garage sales....and dumpster diving. I may need therapy.

So, if we ever meet you KNOW what we have to go do now. :-)

Love those blue glass dishes, I'm coveting them actually...

Many years ago, my Dad gave my Mother's complete set of Blue Willow dishes to someone, for a garage sale! What I wouldn't give to have those back!

I hit my first garage sale of the year yesterday morn. I was on my way to work and my car saw the sign and I couldn't control it. It just swerved to the right all by itself.

Bought a monkey teapot for a buck.

You may be pleased to know that "flipper" alarm clocks are becoming very, very popular on Ebay.

The gravy boat reminds me of one my ex mother in law has...

I love the clock with the flippers. Reminds me of my childhood. We had a few.
