thrift stores rule, antique stores drool!

This morning Ezra and I were visiting some of my favorite thrift stores and I decided to stop by an antique store that I rarely shop at. This is why:

Two cute white vintage pyrex mixing bowls.

The price? On sale (!) for $18.

An hour earlier at Salvation Army I bought an identical set. For a total of... wait for it...

$4.99! But wait, there's more! It was 50% off bric-a-brac day so I actually paid $2.50.

I also got a set of vintage pyrex casserole dishes for $1.50! The antique store sold similar sets for $25-35. I think I might give this set to my sister-in-law. She's keen on vintage pyrex. You interested Jen?

I looked up this design, it's called "Forest Fancies" if you like it there are several sets listed on etsy. Not for $1.50 though! :)

You scored. Love those. What a deal. Poor antique stores. My grandmother had a mushroom decorated kitchen in the 70's and 80's.

Score! Too funny that you found the same item just a few stores away from each other. Maybe you should start selling. Seems like you have an eye for what is in demand.

My mom has those mushroom casseroles at home right now! She's not that old though, so maybe they were hand-me-downs from someone else :D

Score! You found some great deals!

Mmm Hmmm. Went with a girlfriend last night spent a whopping $2.85 for vintage pyrex bowl, pot cover (for the knob that disintegrated on my Revereware and 3 magazines). All of this for less than the price of a single magazine!

Thrift on!

You scored! I never find deals on things like that in Brooklyn!

How do you look up a design? I have had several instances where I want to learn more about an item that I have and have no idea how to find information on it.
