This Weeks Thrift Store Finds

Ahh, how I love thrift shopping. I think I'm addicted, seriously! I have actually stumbled upon some new thrift stores while on my way to the ones I am familiar with. I so often find myself asking "who gave this away?". Well, as the saying goes, one mans trash is another mans treasure. Only in this case it's WOman. Here's what I've found recently! Have fun looking and show me what you've found thrift shopping.
I found this awesome little compote at a Goodwill store that I so often frequent. It's a vintage milk glass compote by E.O. Brody. It has an amazing texture that is unique and not often seen on other milk glass items. I paid only $3.oo for this one.

I love pyrex and I don't come across it that often. So, imagine how I felt when I stumbled upon this petite pyrex bowl still intact with it's lid. I didn't know what I would use it for or if I ever would use it and I didn't care. I just knew I had to have it. I found this at a local Salvation Army and I paid $1.50 for it!

Milk glass is obviously as much of an obsession of mine as much as thrift shopping is. I was overly excited to find this vintage milk glass lamp. I haven't changed the shade yet, but I plan to do so soon. I found this at a Wing's of Life thrift store for $3.00.

I'm not sure who the maker of these sweet little saucers are, but he/she needs to be complimented. The blue color is so amazing on these. They are milk glass and have a silver trim on the inside and outside of the blue. There is a partial stamp on the bottom of one, but it isn't visible enough to identify a maker. I found these at my local Salvation Army for $.75 each.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing what I've found as much as I have enjoyed finding them and sharing them with you. I have been considering opening an Etsy vintage shop, but I am still undecided. Let me know what you think!
