Vintage Finds

Just thought I’d share a few of my recent finds.  The first one is from the Good Will Store, and the other three are from a garage sale I went to over the weekend.

I love this vase! When I saw it at Good Will I couldn’t pass it up! It was $3.99, which I thought was a bit much, but our Good Will store is notorious for higher prices than most.

I have been looking for this 1 1/2 quart baking dish for years now.  I had one and somewhere along the line it got broken.  I kept the lid to it, hoping to find a replacement dish, and I just now found it.  It took me a good many years, but I persevered, and for a dollar it is now mine! Yay me!  ;D

This bowl is the kind I used to eat cereal out of when I stayed at my maternal grandmother’s house. It was only a quarter, so I had to buy it…for nostalgia’s sake, if nothing else!

Last, but not least, a pretty pair of pillowcases for only fifty cents.  I don’t think they were ever used!  Not sure yet, but I’m thinking they just might need a pretty crocheted edging.  :D

  1. Great finds Rita. I have a set of 4 of the blue cornflower baking dishes - my Mom gave them to me years ago. :)

    1. Thanks, Debi. I got mine for our wedding. I had one this size and two small ones. Still have the two small ones, and now I have this size again. :)

    1. Thanks, Gloria, and good to see you around. :) They just might end up with a crocheted edging before all is said and done. :)
