Then I found a vintage silverware divided tray, which will come in handy when it is put to use on my Hoosier cabinet. I can stick all kinds of vintage goodies in it. I love the color of green it is, and also the Art Deco-ish design on it.
I was digging around in some boxes of miscellaneous stuff at the Estate sale, and almost missed this handsome Rooster. I dug around a little more and spied the tip of his head, and uncovered him. I was very pleased to add another Rooster to the Chicken/Rooster collection. The Rooster was happy too :)
Along the way I had to stop in my local hardware store (which by the way is always overpriced) but I had to get something for the house. I spotted a clearance aisle which had what was left of the Christmas decorations, and of course I had to take a look. They must have just marked it all down, because I found 3 boxes of the Radko Shiny Brite flocked ornaments that were marked down to $2.99 a box!!! They were originally marked at $24.99 a box. I bought all 3 boxes - even though they are not true vintage, I still love them. How could I pass them up?
Here's a close up of them - aren't they beautiful!
At the thrift store I found a vintage barkcloth panel (sorry for the crummy picture, the colors are more vibrant in person), and a sweet yellow gingham curtain valance that will look cute over my kitchen sink window. It will need a good soak in OxiClean to brighten it up first.
Next I found an adorable pair of festive Salt & Peppers, but I honestly do not know what they are supposed to be? Do YOU know??? I want to say it looks like they are covered in holly leaves or something like that. Help! Anyway, I thought they were too cute to pass up, whatever they are....
I found a pretty vintage beaded multi-strand necklace and cluster earring set. The beads almost look like candy, they have a sugar coating look to them. Yummy! LOL
And last is a shabby, flowery little dish in the shape of a teapot - probably to
Well, that's all for today! I hope you enjoyed looking at my little haul of vintage goodies. I am going out tomorrow to check out some more thrift stores, hopefully they will be open on New Year's Eve. Gotta get one more shopping trip in before the New Year!
*** And since the year is almost over, I will ask you - what was your very FAVORITE thrifted, yard sale'd, or estate sale'd item that you found this year??
Wishing you the best for thrifting in the New Year!
