THRIFT STORE GOODIES...YA GOTTA SEE!!

Yep.....it has definitly seen better days BUT I loved finding this old high chair.......espicially because of .....................................THE PRICE!! check it out!!!!!


NOT $ 1.50 .......BUT $ 1.51!!! WHAT THE HECK??? So without a care in the world , I coughed up the extra penny like I was Mrs. Got Rocks....livin large!!!

This framed puzzle is by artist Charles Wysocki. I have always loved his Folk Art style. The thing is HUGE!! I can just picture it over a dry sink or a fireplace. If you click on the pic to make it bigger you will get to see the price.........in case ya can't see it good....it really does say .99 cents......get out!!! I know what you are thinkin!!!


And here is my FAV FIND (and I don't even know what it is!) the little screen box thing. Any ideas out there??? The old muffin mold will make some great pantry cakes(I am gonna give them a try) and the enamel lid is going to fit on an old pot I have ..... the pottery is from Salmon Falls. It is a garlic keeper I think because it has holes in it....and the candle is a cotton scent from Kohls never used (retail price tag says 18.00!!) whoa Nellie!!! BUT WAIT>>>>>>>>>>>>>>are you ready for the total on all this . I mean you better be sittin down because I cannot possibly be responsible for any injuries when you faint, fall over, get lock jaw, feel dazed or confused.....you get the picture right???? Okay here it goes......drum roll................................................................................$ 9.48 PLUS TAX...I SO SWEAR!!! I bet you won't guess what the most expensive thing was...................guess again................nope.............keep guessin....................THE MUFFIN TIN!!! I know....hard to believe huh! That thing was 4.25 and normally I wouldn't pay that much but I have been looking for one for awhile and there it was just sittin pretty among all the cookie tins and since I was feeling like money was just no big deal....I would just go dig up another can of it in the back yard....I plopped it in the cart and felt like I had just scored BIG TIME! It was a good day. I was homesick this afternoon and when I go thriftin it seems to help!! The best part of all this haul is NOTHING NEEDS A MAKEOVER!!! YIPPEE!! I can enjoy it RIGHT NOW and it won't sit in the garage waiting for me....taunting me...calling my name....
Well enough of all this....while it is still light out , I better go get a shovel and start diggin!!!!

You did score BIG TIME! I really like that puzzle. You better not tell us where you live or we'll just come dig up some cans!

You had a good day!!!! That was really a steal.
I think I love the high chair too...will you paint it and prim it up or is it prim enough for you?
Thank you for your kind words about Ruth...I miss her but I didn't want her to suffer...I will rejoice when I see her again. Dianntha

Hi Beth...lots of great finds today huh...oh the picture (puzzle) is beautiful...the frame alone is worth something!
Cute Garlic Pot - I have some bowls from Salmon Falls Pottery and I love them.
Not sure what the screen/box thingy is either.
Loved this post...you are a hoot!

Jody said...

Wow you really found the bargains! Love the highchair! Nothing is more fun then finding "treasures".

The Pink Birdhouse said...

Beth, it is very nice to "meet" you, thank you so much for dropping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment for me to let me know that you have been there. I have been reading thru some of your previous posts and am enjoying all the old time goodies that you find! I never come up with anything half as good as the markets here. Maybe I am looking in all the wrong places. I will be back. Have a good Thursday, Debby

Carmen C. said...

AWESOME finds!!!! That high chair was a steal for you, even with the extra penny, LOL! I saw one similar at our local antique mall awhile back for $50.00! Love the muffin tin too, that would look so cute filled with fixins:)

UPON A HILL said...

Wow!! you did well!!!! I think that is a grain seive that you have.

Leslie said...

What wonderful finds! Great deals! The highchair is my fav and what a STEAL!

Have a great day!

Great finds! I would say the screen was made for a drying rack given the legs to lift it off the table. The primitive grain sifters I've found have not had legs--no need for them.
