So what did I find this week?
These fantastic Anchorglass Primrose snack plates.
A Square flower Pyrex casserole dish.
Sheffield Granada salt, pepper & gravy boat.
Two Fire King avocado green cereal bowls.
Do you ever have those somewhat practical needs and just say "Oh I need [this]." when your out thrifting and then there it is? Well, I needed a small dolly/cart to help with the transport of my plastic bins containing my vintage items, for when I do an event. Bins full of glass are heavy. So I was doing my regular circle at my favorite thrift store, start off in glass then around the back to the other side to linens...."oh I need a dolly" I back up to the random item section...and you know what there it was, a collapsible dolly. Now how random is that? It was $8, an easy price to pay for the ease of lugging heavy bins around. Awesome! :-)
My finds just seemed to get better at the thrift stores...who needs garage sales. Check out these super cute vintage suitcase(s). There were two, but I sold the smaller one this weekend, before I thought about taking their picture.
Then check out these super fab Beautyware canisters, in all their vintage, retro glory.
Now, I might have an addiction that I can't control, and it's to Butterfly Gold. Two weeks ago I showed you I scored a plate/cup set, and some casserole dishes, and about two months ago I scored 5 mixing/serving bowls....and last year I had already thrifted 8 hook cups with saucers and a creamer. So why in the world do I need 17 more cups, a creamer, and a sugar bowl?
Well to answer that is because 9 of these cups are Pyrex. How can you leave a set of 9 matching Pyrex cups on the shelf? Plus the Corelle hook cup saucers were bagged with the the Pyrex mugs (how silly), and the hook cup bagged set had a sugar bowl that I didn't already have. So, my justification was that I couldn't buy the Pyrex bagged with the Corelle saucers and leave the Corelle hook cups, because of course that would mean I now have the saucers that don't belong to the Pyrex mugs. Plus I needed the creamer in the hook cup set to complete the set I already had. Right? Yes, just agree with me. Right? :-)
So what I'll do is take the sugar bowl from the hook cup set to complete my set of 8+creamer. Then I'll eventually list the hook cup set on Etsy. As for the Pyrex....well...um.... I'm not sure on that. What kind of addicted soul am I? One day when I have a place of my own I'll be pulling out my Butterfly Gold cups, and I'll have 3 different styles with matching print. Who needs 29 coffee/tea cups? The really messed up part is that I rarely drink coffee or tea, AND I don't even know 29 people. Just lock me up now before you find me on Hoarders. I don't want to find skeletal remains of a pet I don't remember having underneath a pile of Pyrex/Corelle. :-)

Ok...enough of that, onto the remainder of my finds.
This super cute vintage weenie dog planter.
And some really cute glass salt and pepper shakers. The square pair have a small flower mark on the bottom, does anyone know anything about the maker?
Well, that was my week minus weekend of thrifting. How did your thrifting go? Leave a link to your thrifting finds with your comment.
Thanks for stopping by.
PS I think I'll be getting some upcycled sewing done this week. So keep an eye out to see what I make or screw up.
