Lately I have been chomping at the bits to get out and do a bit of thrifting or antiquing.
On Friday they finished framing our basement and I had the perfect excuse. In other words, I had a mission. To find a small 2 ft. wide old door for what will be the pantry.
My sister, Jeanne and I headed down to the Springville Antique Mall.
I’m happy to say, (thanks to my sis) because she is the one who spied it. Mission accomplished. It needs a good work over with some soap and water so I will show it later, but of course I didn’t buy just that.
I am going for a farmhouse look. No farmhouse kitchen would be complete without a bit of Pyrex. Lucky for me, one booth was 50% off. I picked up this cute blue one for $10. I found the little red one in a different booth for $5. Had to have it because it was red!
I have an old Hoosier cupboard that I have not been able to use. I left it at our previous home, which our son bought. Can’t wait to bring it home! It has an enamel top with blue trim. Won’t it be so cute filled with my Pyrex?
Another 50% off piece for $15. This one will stay upstairs in my red, green, and aqua kitchen.
I found this little sifter. I thought it was unique with the lid. Not sure if it really even went with it. For $4.99 I knew it was coming home with me.
On our way to the antique mall I stopped off at the D.I. thrift shop. Found a few fun things there. These yellow tumblers for .75 each. Love those stripes!
I found these for .75 and $1.
Then this afternoon I went with my friend, Joyce and her darling daughter, Jamie (who so graciously chauffeured us and even brought me home afterwards) to an antiques sale at a friends home. I found an item that has been on my want list. An old crock to hold my rolling pin collection. Isn’t she a beauty? No super deal, but I didn’t think $30 was bad. It’s hard to tell, but it’s the perfect size!
Last of all I found something fun for the craft room. An old type pad drawer (I think that’s what they are called). The piece along the bottom is galvanized tin. She had old family pictures hanging from the clothespins. Love the rope! The slots are perfect for holding mail.
Pretty good finds, don’t you think? Hope you found some treasures of your own!
