Here's what I scored.
Tuesday I went to the rare, odd mid-week estate sale (not ran by a company). It was a small duplex that was needing to be cleared by the end of the week. I got got some really cool vintage 1970s Marvel Comic, Pepsi glasses. These are currently listed individually on Etsy.
And some milk glass Fire King Custard cups, 12. I already have 10 that I've had a hard time telling myself to list on Etsy.
Wednesday was another home ran estate sale. Not a ton of stuff here, since they were slowing bringing things out throughout the week. However, I did get these great red patio chairs.
No, they are not vintage, they are new, and I was not gonna ask how much they were, but did anyway. $50 for the pair. Hmmm, even though that's a good price for the pair, that was still too rich for my blood. So I offered $35, and it was accepted. Score!! I knew these were way more pricey than what I got them for, and this weekend I saw them for $58 each at a store. These are mine!
Here is an unusual occurrence. The weekend before at an estate sale I saw a glass head for $25, but didn't want to pay that much, so the next day I went back in hopes it was still there so I could buy it half off, but it was gone. Then at this Wednesday sale what do I see? Yup, a glass head, $10. Uh yeah I want it.
What would I do with a glass head you might ask...well display my new fabric headbands of course. :-) They could be worn narrow, scrunched up, or wide. I'll be adding some soon to Etsy.
Saturday my mom suggested we venture out of town for sales, since I didn't have the kids. So we went a whopping 45 miles out of town to the cute town of New Braunfels, TX. I'll admit it was nice driving around the town, through some of the neighborhoods. However, I had really high hopes though to get a ton of vintage goods from an area I don't venture out to, but was really disappointed. Two estate sales, and 5 thrift stores, and this is what I got.
These long vintage vases. Any one know what these are officially called? I'm seeing different descriptions of them online. There are no markings on them.
Pfaltzgraph 3 quart casserole
And some vintage coffee pots, Pyrex and Corning Ware
How was your week thrifting?
