weekend thrift shopping = FUN!!!!!....and cheap!

I went shopping over the weekend and found some really neat vintage items for really cheap...which is what I like! My favorite place to shop is about an hour away from where I live, but it is so worth the drive. It is a Hospice flea market and I have found the best things there for yard sale prices! It doesn't hurt that it's for a good cause, too. Here is what I found over the weekend...

 I was very excited to find a Pyrex "spring blossom green" mug for $1.50. It looks brand new! I found this cute Gemco juicer for $0.50, the chopper for $0.50, and the flower syrup cruet for $1.00. I have to add that I saw the same chopper in an antique store on the same day for $18!
 I love, love, love vintage restaurant ware that is made in the USA. These nice Shenango plates were only $1 each and the mugs were $0.50! They also look brand new...
 My mom bought these gorgeous glasses for herself, but ended up giving them to me. YES! :) The tall ones were $1 each and the small ones $0.50 each.
 Lovely!!!
I found this Homer Laughlin platter for $4, a Homer Laughlin mug for $0.50, and the Buffalo bowls for $1 each.

I was a very happy thrift shopper!!! :) Thanks for looking...

  6. Such pretty drinking glasses! Hurray for moms! I think some of my blogging friends refer to those type of glasses as "swanky swigs" I have 4 boys so pretty glasses always got broke. I finally gave into thick chunky glasses. Maybe once the youngest leaves home.... ♥
